“It was now or never. When he was sure that she was engrossed in her work, he quickly took the small bottle of poison from his pocket and poured it into his water flask, making sure that his back was to Morgana. He had to concentrate to stop his hands from shaking; the enormity of what he was doing made him tremble.”
Colin Brake, The Last Dragonlord
