Second Sun #85

On entering the room, Callipe positioned himself by the four tails of the Summoning Bells. He, too, was not without suspicion.
The pulling of the fabric cord of one bell would alert the guards outside; the pulling of two would summon them into the room in readiness for conflict.
The pulling of three cords would alert all the guards of the Fist and send them to their positions inside and outside the room. And the pulling of all four would surround the chamber with guards and would seal all the entrances and exits so that none could enter or leave.

    It's not good to pull your rope too often. Apparently it sends you blind.

    Please excuse my last remark. I think it might be a bit too smutty for such a serious and engaging story. Sorry Drew :-(

    No excusing needed Neville, it gave me a good chuckle. And let's be honest, Triu's fourteen so we won't go into what happens behind the scenes...
