Pappy is determined not to be suffocated by the Bitter Man, and has gradually rolled out of his shadow. Through agonizing discipline, he has taught himself to unattach from his vine and bounce around for brief excursions. There were witches or Druids not far from the patch -- he could hear their chanting on cold starry nights -- and a plot to steal their magic slowly formed in Pappy's mind. The warts and marks he bears are testament to a will that will not be denied -- he has tasted wind of Great Ones from patches far away. And one day he too will be a Great One, presiding over the fallen, rotten remains of the Bitter Man, whose days must surely soon come to an end. Pappy will make his way, at any cost.
