"Indeed, madam," the tall but alarmingly thin man acknowledged. "That is my space. I come from Slesebord. I am called Will Klopp."
"And when will you return there, Will Klopp?"
"As soon as I purchase a rooster for the pot and a goat for the grounds. It is my fervent desire to be home by sundown as there are bandits about on the roads after dark."
"May I ride with you, sir?"
"Do I know you, madam?" Will Klopp asked nervously.
"Of course, you do," Haggis admonished. "I am Haggis One L'Mar."
"Aieeeeee!" cried Will Klopp.
