Sereg was aching all over when he awoke. The first thing that his eyes saw was the face of a beautiful woman with green hair. “What happened to you?” she asked, “Are you alright?”
“I’m not sure what happened,” he responded, “but I should be alright.” He looked at her more closely, she had long, beautiful, pointed ears. “You’re an elf?” he asked in shock. “Why, yes.” she answered clearly befuddled at why someone would ask a question for which the answer was so obvious. “Why do you ask?”
“I…didn’t think that they actually existed.” answered Sereg.
“Wow,” said the elf, “I guess that you really aren’t from around these parts. Still I can’t just leave you here. My children are out. Come with me to my place and I’ll give you something to eat.” At the mention of food, Sereg got up and followed her eagerly, thanking her profusely.
“I guess it’s true that humans have much bigger appetites than we do.” said the elf, clearly happy to have her food appreciated. “These are delicious!” exclaimed Sereg as he helped himself to his fourth banana nut muffin. It turned out that the elf’s name was Inkyrius and she was a baker. Sereg was eagerly sampling her wares. “I do have a confession to make though,” said Inkyrius, “I had an ulterior motive for bringing you here. You see I’ve been missing companionship since my divorce and I heard a human expression that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.” With that she kissed him. Sereg responded hungrily for while he was full of food, he was still hungry for this.
