Finally, the cup was taken away and Sam’s head was rested back down. Panting, Sam blinked heavily several times before his vision began to clear and he was able to make out Ithyn leaning over him.
“Gods all around, Samril.” Ithyn sighed, gently pressing his wrist to Sam’s forehead. “What were you thinking?”
Sam tried to answer, felt his stomach lurch in response, and shut his mouth again.
Ithyn shook his head. “You nearly killed yourself, do you realize that?”
Sam’s eyes went wide, but he still couldn’t speak quite yet. Killed myself? What the hells did I take?
Ithyn continued looking him over, checking his pulse, examining his eyes and tongue, feeling the glands under his jaw, then sat back with another sigh. “Thank Kalos, I was able to determine which powder you took. Why did you not simply wait for me? I might have been able to assist you with…whatever it was you were attempting to accomplish.”
“Needed,” Sam whispered, testing his voice, “an escape.”
“Oh, Sam.” Ithyn sighed. “But to take your own life?”
Sam slowly shook his head, thankful the room didn’t spin when he did so. “Wasn’t my intention.”
“What was your intention?”
“Just…a break. A little break from the world.”
“And you used that?” Ithyn asked incredulously.
Sam shrugged and slowly sat up. He found himself on the sofa in Ithyn’s sitting room, not far from where he’d collapsed on the floor. “It did say For Master Shyford.”
Ithyn gave him a puzzled look, then glanced over at the table where all the herbs were arranged. He gave an exasperated sigh and shook his head. “That note had nothing to do with the powders. It was for the books I placed in your room the day you arrived, and I simply forgot to discard the note. Besides, you had my jars all out of arrangement, anyway. How could you possibly match the note to one of them?”
