Serpent

The serpent slithered quietly behind intent upon abducting him, and keeping him away for years.

The minister of publishing made the decision to conjure the big snake and instructed it to remove the author as a contributor to the budget. It seems the author had been self publishing works that went against the beliefs of the coven.

Moral:

Just because you are an insider does not mean you are safe from persecution.

LCpl Netra Rana Taking Part in Sitting Volleyball London 2012 Paralympics

The paralympian had a short memory it seems. He forgot that he had just completed a round of chemo cocktails, probably because of also having a banana smoothie to generate a lift in his spirits.

The inflection in his voice gave the coach an idea of his dogged determination to compete. So, the coach did not veto the decision to carry on.

Moral:

Competition sometimes is better than medication in overcoming adversity.
