Once I retired, however, things changed again. Suddenly my financial worries were over. I had savings instead of debts. Most of my children had left the nest. I had time once more. Doing locum consultant work here and there when I felt inclined had all the pleasures and little of the pain of full time consultant work. No committee meetings, virtually no administrative duties. Just ward rounds, outpatient clinics, teaching, and on-call duties every three or four nights. The outpatient clinics were generally less heavily booked than I had been used to. I could sit back and listen to patients and their parents, could put myself entirely at their disposal. It made a tremendous difference.
Down on your knees to find your wayThrough this labyrinth of whysTime and again, rig and replayWhen nothing justifiesOr leaves a trace to tellA way out of your shellTo sample life
Give me back my innocence cos I wish to dream againLike I never outgrew my old playgroundWhere the sun sets slowly with a golden crown and the leaves sing lullabies 'round vacant swingsGive me those wings
Let me fly once againLike I did way back whenI would gamble and winTo lift me high above the dinOf the future we seeDoes it hold something for meI'm weightless againJust before the shadows...
Somehow I've been blindsided by my own kindhearted notion of just who we areNo doubt we'd have collided anyway with me indicted and you raising alarmFirst round I'll take my bows into my corner take my vows, regroup and run back againBloodhound and of no better pedigree than what you see so you could not offend
Feeling like a fool againJust need a new directionA new beginning, a new beginningI can't hold back and I can't hold onIt's all about gratificationSee me running, see me running
But suddenly, from nowhere, A mysterious white hand appeared and grabbed his neck and then pulled him out of that pit, then flew him away from that terrible valley. The last thing Harry remembered was the sight of demons as they flew behind him trying to catch him to bring him back. They almost reached him, and he closed his eyes in horror, but when he opened them again he found himself in the hospital lying on the bed of the critical care unit.
When police came to the house and knocked on the door, Harry opened with a pale face. They asked him why loud noises coming from his house, he told them in horror that the demons of hell came to his house to bring him back to Hell, And that the only way to keep them away is by playing music with high sound!.
Harry's burning body image was soon leaked to the press and published in newspapers and magazines. In fact, that picture is the only evidence of the authenticity of this story. Although personally I did not understand how Harry died and went to hell and then released to come back to life! .. And why they followed him to bring him back to hell if they had allowed him to go out in the first place. You may also be surprised by this story, but there are those who believe that Harry's story actually happened to give humans a glimpse of what awaits them in the Otherworld, and In order to induce them to follow a new approach in their lives based on spirituality, honesty and goodness.

As for the supporting characters among the living, several of season 1's characters are either mentioned or pop up again throughout the comics' run. Between re-appearances and flashbacks, we may get appearances from those who had bigger arcs, like Charles Dance (Roderick Burgess), David Thewlis (John Dee), Jenna Coleman (Johanna Constantine), Razane Jammal (Lyta Hall), or Vanesu Samunyai (Rose Walker).
This means season 2 may have a similar set-up as season 1, with one overall arc focusing on the Endless and other immortals, with a second focusing on a mortal. A Game of You brings back Barbie (Lily Travers), Rose's blonde friend who seemed to be heading for a divorce from her husband Ken (Richard Fleeshman). The fifth volume sees the divorcée returning to her dreamland (which we saw in season 1) after her animal sidekick Martin Tenbones appears in the waking world. She has to face off against the villain of her dreams, the Cuckoo, with the help of Dream.

Stephen drew back his maimed and quivering right arm and held out hisleft hand. The soutane sleeve swished again as the pandybat was liftedand a loud crashing sound and a fierce maddening tingling burning painmade his hand shrink together with the palms and fingers in a lividquivering mass. The scalding water burst forth from his eyes and,burning with shame and agony and fear, he drew back his shaking arm interror and burst out into a whine of pain. His body shook with a palsyof fright and in shame and rage he felt the scalding cry come from histhroat and the scalding tears falling out of his eyes and down hisflaming cheeks.
The parlour fire would not draw that evening and Mr Dedalus rested thepoker against the bars of the grate to attract the flame. Uncle Charlesdozed in a corner of the half furnished uncarpeted room and near himthe family portraits leaned against the wall. The lamp on the tableshed a weak light over the boarded floor, muddied by the feet of thevanmen. Stephen sat on a footstool beside his father listening to along and incoherent monologue. He understood little or nothing of it atfirst but he became slowly aware that his father had enemies and thatsome fight was going to take place. He felt, too, that he was beingenlisted for the fight, that some duty was being laid upon hisshoulders. The sudden flight from the comfort and reverie of Blackrock,the passage through the gloomy foggy city, the thought of the barecheerless house in which they were now to live made his heart heavy:and again an intuition, a foreknowledge of the future came to him. Heunderstood also why the servants had often whispered together in thehall and why his father had often stood on the hearthrug, with his backto the fire, talking loudly to uncle Charles who urged him to sit downand eat his dinner.
It was the signal for their onset. Nash pinioned his arms behind whileBoland seized a long cabbage stump which was lying in the gutter.Struggling and kicking under the cuts of the cane and the blows of theknotty stump Stephen was borne back against a barbed wire fence.
In the vestry a plump freshfaced jesuit and an elderly man, in shabbyblue clothes, were dabbling in a case of paints and chalks. The boyswho had been painted walked about or stood still awkwardly, touchingtheir faces in a gingerly fashion with their furtive fingertips. In themiddle of the vestry a young jesuit, who was then on a visit to thecollege, stood rocking himself rhythmically from the tips of his toesto his heels and back again, his hands thrust well forward into hissidepockets. His small head set off with glossy red curls and hisnewly shaven face agreed well with the spotless decency of his soutaneand with his spotless shoes.
Stephen was once again seated beside his father in the corner of arailway carriage at Kingsbridge. He was travelling with his father bythe night mail to Cork. As the train steamed out of the station herecalled his childish wonder of years before and every event of hisfirst day at Clongowes. But he felt no wonder now. He saw the darkeninglands slipping away past him, the silent telegraphpoles passing hiswindow swiftly every four seconds, the little glimmering stations,manned by a few silent sentries, flung by the mail behind her andtwinkling for a moment in the darkness like fiery grains flungbackwards by a runner.
He returned to his wanderings. The veiled autumnal evenings led himfrom street to street as they had led him years before along the quietavenues of Blackrock. But no vision of trim front gardens or of kindlylights in the windows poured a tender influence upon him now. Only attimes, in the pauses of his desire, when the luxury that was wastinghim gave room to a softer languor, the image of Mercedes traversed thebackground of his memory. He saw again the small white house and thegarden of rosebushes on the road that led to the mountains and heremembered the sadly proud gesture of refusal which he was to makethere, standing with her in the moonlit garden after years ofestrangement and adventure. At those moments the soft speeches ofClaude Melnotte rose to his lips and eased his unrest. A tenderpremonition touched him of the tryst he had then looked forward to and,in spite of the horrible reality which lay between his hope of then andnow, of the holy encounter he had then imagined at which weakness andtimidity and inexperience were to fall from him. 2b1af7f3a8
