“My daughter, that is the consequences. You hedge the charm on your love for your children” the woman who has been listening to two ogygy(flies) answered, beside her are leaves fetch from the forest in the village.

“mother, Oliver is becoming worse everyday” she complained bitterly, it true her son’s recent behaviour is overbearing, she can’t do anything to stop it ’cause of the strong charm that remains unravel if she loves her children more than life.

“Do you want to control both of them? People will be suspicious my daughter” the woman who has taken a leaf from the other ones threw it into her mouth chewing it, and murmuring incoherent words.
