Sword Through the Throat
Charlotte leads Clare on to stage... the Evil Magician steps forward from the wings to hypnotise his latest victim! Held by the mesmer stare, she kneels before him, docile and submissive as Charlotte cuffs her wrists and ankles.
When the stocks are placed around her neck, she pleads with her eyes, but her body is unresisting. Then the Evil Magician produces the glittering steel sword!
The Evil Magician brandishes the sword, threatening Clareand she is powerless to fight his powerful spell! He inserts the sword into its guide... slides it in... she feels the cold s teel bite her throat but cannot cry out!
She swears afterwards she could feel the blade grate as it went through her, impaling her, transfixing her... but somehow there was a snap of the fingers, the spell was broken... and she was whole again! !
