  The man bowed. His robes flowed with shimmering colors. He took another bow; taking out a silver wand with a small flick of his hand. He tapped it in the air and out came a shimmering moon, lighting up the sky. After that came stars and planets. His audience was utterly amazed.

He then jumped into the air. He spun and twirled leaving a glittering trail in his path. He poured water into the air and it hovered there not moving He jumped onto it then as if his hands were scissors and the universe was just a slim piece of paper he cut the scene in front of him and walked to the empty black space and was consumed by nothingness.

He reappeared on the stage minutes later to a burst of applause from the audience.

He was a magician, a magic lover, and a marvelous man.
