*he was wearing a black cloak and black gloves that shows his fingers, ( am not telling my true identity well give ya a hint it starts with the letter "S")* he puts lots of snakes in all the beds, and in the closents, dressers, mostly everywhere. He finished then said, "Haha, Noone leaves me" He smirks then walks out.

Herb staggered back in, holding everything. He dropped the broom and dustpan, placing the sheets and febreze on a cleared dresser. He sighed and bent down, picking up the broom. Gripping the handle, he began moving around the room, piling spiders in a big heap in the middle of the area, along with some dirt and other random trash. The teen finished and looked around the floor, double checking. Once he thought it was good, he swept the pile into the dustpan, frowning at it. Walking over to the trash bin, he took out a layer of waded paper and dumped the spiders and trash, placing the paper back over it to cover up. Looking around, he sighed, remembering the sheets. The spiders were dead, but they had to be clean and redone. He began taking off a sheet, shaking out the spiders in another pile, then laying the soiled sheet in a pile near the door. Herb did this with each one until each bunk was st<_>ripped. He did the same thing as the before pile of spiders: remove a layer of paper, dump the insects, then cover it up. Then he began placing the new sheets on, carefully pulling on the to prevent as much wrinkles as possible. After that he whipped out the febreze, spraying what the can labeled "Sky and Linen". After he doused the arachnicide smell. Looking around satisfied, he grabbed a piece of paper and pen and began writing on the closest table. <p> Hey, took care of the spiders! If you see one come get me or kill it with this!" An arrow pointed to where the can of arachnicide pinned down a corner. "And here is to mask the smell!" The next arrow pointed to the febreze. "&bull;&bull;&bull;Herb." <p> Satisfied, he picked up the dirty sheets and headed out.

Pro's Factual, well-laid-out, enthusiastic &amp; at times amusingly sarcastic. Sabatini challenges the many flaws in seemingly reliable Borgia sources. The author is dedicated to defending the real Borgia story, featuring fantastic examples of Cesare's true grandeur. As a history buff, the TRUTH and those who seek it &amp; seek to spread it is what I appreciate. It's a fairly good simplistic addition to any Borgia collection. Con's A bit dry at times, and the insults upon false-sources get repetitive. The focus is more on reasons for discrediting old sources rather than explaining Cesare's life. The book is great up until the last few chapters, I expected so much more there. The story is fairly well-detailed until that point. The end is abrupt with an overly-dramatized image of Cesare's unknowable last moments, and just teeters off, leaving the reader wanting more. There's no wrap-up, no final reiteration on the book's entire thesis. If you'd like much more detail on Cesare's story, I highly, intensely recommend John Leslie Garner, &quot;Caesar Borgia, a study of the Renaissance.&quot;

I am having difficulty getting interested enough to read this book. The author is very concerned with proving Cesare Borgia's innocence of the crime of fratricide. I haven't finished it yet and don't know if I will.
