Pastiche

Our hero’s eyes become all of one color, that being green with a faint spark of yellow at their centers, and in a voice that is perfectly clear and somehow faint and far away says: “There is a change in the flow of the tides of Life. Not a riptide, but a tidal wave. Not merely an abrupt current-flow but something that may change in a moment the shores against which the waves break, moving the currents to different paths forever.”

      Except for necking with Isis. A redhead, you will note.
