She included important things such as her emotions, as well as the emotions of those around her.

Denying the incident in this case had actually helped Percy stay motivated unlike Dunstan, who was motivated in life by his guilty conscience. “I threw a snowball at you, and I guess it gave you a good smack.

He opens the door and what is left of the castle begins to completely crumble, turning to dust to blow away with the wind. the searching grows more desperate, items that once held such importance being thrown carelessly throughout the otherwise organised room. The all-important item that was being searched for has finally been found, the chemical saviour whom shall flush out the beast, but time has drawn short, and he has found the last remains of the warmth.
