With the Perilous, Remarkable Shadow
by Samuel Lee Farmer Bard

He was now, according to Countess Sunflower, away again on safari.
   Just then, came an inrush of cool air as the door was flung open, and she felt her heart suddenly beat with a new, wild rhythm. He was here! “I tried to forget you, but I couldn’t, you whose lips have unquenchable central heating!” he said as the blood rose in his face and ears.
   It was then that there was a much-appreciated break in the formerly-incessant shelling, and as the music in her heart rose to a new crescendo of happiness, she realized that it was now only a matter of time before they would be feeding off of each other's precious bodily secretions.
