But my way was blocked by three young men, all close to my own age and all dressed in brown. Two of them were very large, perhaps taller than even Hendrek or the Dealer of Death. One of the tall ones smiled in my direction, his grin missing a couple of teeth. The other big fellow seemed to hardly notice me at all. He appeared instead to focus all his attention on a long, slightly curved knife which he twirled absently between his palms.

None of them uttered more than a phrase before they rejoined their sneezing comrades. ’ Snorphosio exclaimed. ‘But then, who is to say how truly serious a situation can be?

Hubert shook his head. ‘You shouldn’t be too hasty in a decision of this sort. There’s a place for you in our act! Besides, as you probably heard, we’re working on a major new opus, “The Ballad of Wuntvor,” for the big victory celebration this weekend.
