The Mermaid Elixir


 
   
       Charlie eyed all nurses suspiciously.  Everyone thought he talked crazy.   That is why his kids forced him into assisted living, to have him watched.   He’d escape to the beach nearby.  Like before, she would rejuvenate him: another modern medical miracle.  Goodbye cancer!

  5. Wow! What a miracle, Kathy!
    But, many people don't believe in miracles, hence they think believers are crazy...
