Magic #9

by

Tellerick grudgingly paid the rep for two weeks, and signed the hiring document that also required additional payment should it take longer than usual. Then there was travel insurance on top of that, even though the rep thought whoever might attack would regret it.

His copy of the documents in hand, he walked over to the boy who was waiting patiently by a table.

Tellerick sat, and took a heavy swig of his ale. "This is proving to be an expensive trip. Prices have gone up so much since I last left the cottage." He lifted his tankard. "Even this!"

    LOL. Thanks Drew! I think Neville will be grumpy that you beat him to it ;)

    Well slap my thigh! You would think the fantasy world would be inflation-free. I reckon Tellerick needs to adopt some ‘quantitative easing’, particularly at those inflated prices. Ale and farewell pdq...

    Do I have to slap your thighs? I'd rather not if you don't mind. Not really my thing 😉😊

    OK Jeff... you don’t have to. It was just a Whittingtonian self-flage reference and it certainly didn’t do Dick any harm (allegedly).😸
