Author's Note (A/N): Thought I'd post a story I wrote last year, about a Hermit and the Disciple he healed. Not very proud of the plot, but I am pretty pleased with the wording of it. I wish I could still write like that, but (sigh) Law School has robbed me of my imagination and sapped me of my creativity. Well then, what are you waiting for... Read!


BELLADONNA

 

belladonna: m. tall bushy herb, the deadly nightshade (Atropa belladonna), of the family Solanaceae (order Solanales), and the crude drug consisting of its dried leaves or roots. The plant, which grows to about 1.5 m (4-5 feet) tall, is a native of wooded or waste areas in central and southern Eurasia. It has dull green leaves, violet or greenish flowers in the axils of the leaves or in the forks of branches, shiny black berries about the size of cherries, and a large tapering root. Belladonna is highly poisonous and is cultivated in France and elsewhere for the medicinal alkaloids hyoscyamine, hyoscine, and atropine, which are derived from the crude drug and are used in sedatives, stimulants, and antispasmodics. Because of toxicity and undesirable side effects, these alkaloids are being superseded by synthetic drugs.[1]

There was a huge old mansion on the outskirts of the city away from prying eyes. Aged and strong it had held out against gales and burglars alike. Sad, lonely and old like its owners, it had perhaps forgotten even its name.
