"You know what we should do, " Charlotte advised, "is hire an assassin to take him out."

"Not a bad idea, lassie, " the dwarf commented.

Silently considering that possibility, they paced about or stretched their achy limbs. It then dawned on them that they probably needed him alive to get the Lagos artifacts. Fortha said as much, and they agreed.

"Well, shat, " Garrett huffed. "So, alright, the longer we stay here, the more likely we are to be discovered."

"We could hide in the basement, but I agree, " Larson stated. "We should attack the White Wraith headquarters, and be done with it. After Charlotte shows the way, she can bugger off to deal with our legal problems."

"I don't have a thousand gold on me, " she rebutted with an arched eyebrow and slight shake of the head, which made her shiny locks bounce.

Waving his hands about in irritation, Larson said, "I can write a bank note."

"I don't know if Marla will accept that; my boss is pretty keen on coin."

"Urrrargh, " Larson sputtered and stormed off again.

"Can we risk a trip to the bank, " Lyalla posed.

"You don't think the guards are out looking for us, " Garrett asked, a smile playing on his lips.

"Well, we have to do something, " Fortha puffed.

"And so now you think I'm incapable of defending myself?!"

"That's not what I meant."

"What did you mean?" Garrett interceded.

Larson peeked from Garrett to the elf. "I was only asking if he was healthy enough to put himself in danger again."

"Oh, " both Garrett and Fortha said.

"Yes, I'm fine…thank you, " the elf answered.

"You'll be sore as shite when you wake, " the warrior added.

"I know, " Fortha breathed. "Let's get some rest."

While sleep did not come easy, especially for Larson and Garrett, they all woke four or five hours later, stretched their aching bodies, checked their supplies, and plotted over the best course of action. "They'll know we're on to them now, " Garrett started.

"Aye, " the dwarf agreed, yawning. "Which is why we should get a move on."
