  • The moral of the story is be careful of what you ask for. Alan is about the purchase a love potion that will make a woman obsessed with him to the point that the very thing that he thinks he wants, will be come a burden to him. The old man mentions the potion that cost 5000.00 because this is his ultimate product. The love potion is cheap to show its buyers that it is worth it to come again later for the 'life cleanser' which is an untraceable poison that will rid him of this woman when he tires of her.
