"Blood-curdling..." -- Part 30

"You!" Haggis cried as she spied a familiar looking face on the street. "Do I not know you from Slesebord, which is my home?"

"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.

I love the name, Will Klopp. Sounds like a faithful horse.
