"She's probably right, " Larson interjected. "The other corpses are days old at least."

"Why did the cultists blow open the door with magick then?" Tannish sighed. "Did you not see they were frightened? Their robes were bloody, and I think they were wounded; they had not even the sense to react."

"What do you think they were doing, " Wilma asked.

Tannish frowned, and shaking his head, replied, "I think they were just fighting."

"The cultists were armed. They would have just killed him unless they wanted information, " Larson remained adamant. "They probably heard us arguing about rats and tried to surprise us."

"Fastest person I ever met, " Wilma smiled. "He'll be back with a healer before long. We spotted an apothecary on the way here."

Light shone through closed shutters, so the lovers walked inside the establishment to find a rather fancy setting; burgundy and purple drapes hung from rafters, candles burned from ornate holders built into the supporting posts, the modest bar was occupied by but a single person, and many, cushioned booths were empty. An old man wearing black finery greeted them, and then offered a table, which they accepted. A free glass of plum wine came with their meal, and as they chatted about their current predicament—awaiting their order of game hen—a lovely couple from the next booth chuckled.

Garrett and Lyalla pursed their lips and squinted at one another. Then, Garrett turned around and at the same time, a young, half-elf man also turned. They nodded to each other, and Garrett caught sight of the man's date, a smoky brunette. She, too, gave a flickering smile.
