Sonny the Scoundrel lives with Grandpap, the wizard in their rustic village of Sow's Teat.  Sonny is dashing and handsome, but his reputation is widely known.  When a former flame announces her marriage to a suitor from a distant city, he knows it will be a grand affair attended by visitors from far beyond their village—including young maidens who are unaware of his dubious reputation.

Since the visitors will include his favorite type of maidens—those he can romance and never see again, he nicks a love elixir from Grandpap in advance of a big wedding,.  Sonny is confident he can charm any of the visiting maidens without need of the love elixir, but why work harder than necessary? 

When he adds too much love elixir to a girl's cup, Sonny discovers making her fall out of love with him is much harder than he imagined.  Unfortunately, there is no love elixir antidote and Sonny must use his wits to wriggle out of her clinging claws.


"Sonny the Scoundrel. What do you want?" The coldness in her eyes and voice was in contrast to the opulent splendor of her wedding gown. Her father scowled at me from behind her.

"Want? Why, I want to wish you all the best, of course. And to ask whether our feelings for each other are completely expired. Can you truly live without me?" I stepped closer, my heart straining with emotion. The small bottle of love elixir I had purloined from Grandpap's potions workspace felt strangely large inside the inner pocket of my jerkin. Now that I’d confronted Winsond, I no longer had the courage to use it.

"You are here only because you want what you cannot have. If I called off my wedding, you would be chasing other petticoats tomorrow." Her lip curled in disdain. "I am finding happiness, so you come here to stop my marriage?" She gestured around at the throng filing Cappersham's tavern. "You will never enjoy such a blessed event. You could not even find a woman to love you, let alone have your family, friends and neighbors celebrate your success."

She put hands on hips and glared at me as if expecting a response. "Not even a lie or excuse?" She jabbed my chest with a finger. "The only love you will ever know is when you gaze at your own reflection in a pool of water. You will never earn the love of a woman!"

"Many women have loved me," I retorted. "That has never been a problem. The problem is too many love me and to single out and marry just one maiden would leave such a number heartbroken."
