This was a massive mistake.
The elixir was supposed to make me stronger, but all I feel is an incessant buzzing in my head. My temples are throbbing.
I turn the bottle over, and groan. There’s an inscription of some kind, written in an ancient language I can’t read. It looks like some sort of warning.
The throbbing in my temples gets louder.
I curse my own stupidity.
In my haste I’d forgotten life’s foremost rule: always read the fine print.
