The crafty alchemist found great joy in sweeping the truth under the carpet. His scientific acumen was widely recognised, and gauged by his standing among his peers, there was very little chance of an investigation. His supple mind had long ago worked out the importance of keeping those rare oils and acids well hidden, leaving only some innocent looking juices out in the open. The herbal mixtures that he invented to sprinkle into these juices hid his real agenda. Meanwhile, his web of secrets grew as he tenderly cared for his true interest, and he also knew that he could never let the world share his knowledge.
