Am I hallucinating all this? Kill me or save me, as you wish, but for the love of the Unnamed God, do it soon. 舡 It was this last remark that moved the Lion to pity, or pity of a sort. He knew about being alone. The weather was always cold there. He padded forward and put his big head down on the man舗s chest. The man swooned in fear or disbelief, whereupon the scattershot snare in his chest slowed to a more stately thud. The Lion considered creeping off. The whole thing was so embarrassing. 舡 He didn舗t want to be rude and leave without the correct valediction.
There are those who rely on me for support,舡 said the Lion, thinking: Myself, for one, and one is enough. 舠Besides, I haven舗t those curving shrimplike fingers you have. 舡 He was trying for a jocular tone, but it seemed to lack smack, and the hunter舗s distress was, well, distressing. Brrr pawed about, keeping a fair enough berth, sniffing and tossing his mane. 舠So this is a hunter舗s trap, and you舗re a hunter. And I舗ve just put the two concepts together. 舡 舠I舗ll give you anything. Every nickel florin I own.
It all but disappeared. 舠I do so wish you舗d come sooner,舡 said the maunt. 舡 舠You ought not to have bothered. There舗s nothing I can do for you now. 舡 said a voice at the door. They turned. 舠I knew you舗d be here sooner or later,舡 said Yackle, 舠but it took me the better part of the season to get up the stairs. 舡 The Lion, not knowing precisely what he was seeing, merely gaped. Sister Hospitality sloped to the floor with the clop of a collapsing ironing board. 舠You seem to have killed her,舡 said the Lion to the newcomer, affably enough.
