Lucan the butler

“Hey, what’d you do him?”

Lucan the butler lies on the ground, feeling confused. He was on a hot streak—that’s for sure, two big wins. Then the third guy, something weird there. Wonder what happened.

“You can’t just wallop people like that.”

“Who says?”

“Uwain, and this big sword I’ve got. That’s who.”

The yelling makes it hard to focus. Bet somebody’s really missing all this blood on the ground. What a shame.

“Screw it, I’m leaving.”

“Nope. Stay right there, because you’re gonna have to catch one.”

Aha, Lucan thinks, this is starting to sound sort of familiar.
