Quandary Resolution 1461
absorptiveness, profligate, perfidious, aeromancy
Relying on the absorptiveness of the thick walls of their Thracian cave to soak up Helios' fire before it reached them, Aeolus and his sons were resting in the midday heat, when Boreas was summoned unexpectedly by beautiful Orethyia, practicing her innocent aeromancy beside the River Ilissos, his absence then allowing Euros and Notus (always profligate in matters of precipitation) to flood the area with rain unchecked and leaving Zephryus the Perfidious at large to betray yet another lover.
