Eos sat beside Feronia and watched the great, writhing two-headed dionaea, and waited.
Came that day which was the time appointed by Diana Triformis for her visit to dionaea.
dionaea did not say anything, but Baena coiled swiftly on the bed and struck out full length, his fangs meeting in Druga's arm.
The sleepy-eyed dionaea poked her head above the covers at the sound of their entry.
Baena looked at dionaea's head with the reptilian love-light glowing frustrate in his great green-and-gold eyes.
He lay there all night, waiting for his own life's blood to reanimate the mind of dionaea.
And Queen dionaea's head bounced down the stairway into her garden of live oaks.
For even a serpent has been known to swallow its tail, and dionaea had no desire to know if Baena could do that trick.
Druga related to Eos all the events that had transpired since the lopping off of dionaea's head.
A great laugh broke from him to see the reptilian change the grafting had wrought in dionaea's beauty.
