Minerva rolled her eyes and stood up. She patted down her thick dress and straightened her Witches hat.

"Damn. I was hoping to report in about the battle of Colonnade pass."

"Did'ja win missy?" Asked the man.

"Yes. Yes, we won the battle. But now I'm thinking we lost the war."

"Ere!? Donal' if we can't go int't mountains, where're we goin'?"

The man looked downcast. "I don't know Lillybet'. Along't coast I suppose?" He looked at Minerva. "You could come wit' missy?"

She shook her head. "I think I need to see the damage first. I will catch up."

    As a former inhabitant of God’s own county, I thought it were Yorkshire🤔?

    I'm not sure what region of the UK it would be. I just thought about the British TV shows I've seen of a man and woman who lived out in the countryside and were just simple people. There was a sketch on Monty Python's Flying Circus that it reminded me of but I'm damned if I can remember what the sketch was about.

    ‘int’t’... pure Yorkshire! One of the guys I play golf with is from Dewsbury and I heard his voice as I read your words, Jeff!
