On the Waterfront

The riverfront area was crowded with taverns where sailors, merchants, pickpockets, prostitutes and rent boys plied their trades. "Pull your cloak around you and stay in the shadows," he ordered. The dog's bared teeth and his half-pulled sword served warning against those approaching too closely.

Lothiriel seemed oblivious to all; her focus was on the broad, deep waters ahead. Suddenly she picked up her pace. "There's the first mate of my ship."

She started running toward a weathered man of middle age. "Master Tompkins!"

"She'll get us killed yet, dog," he muttered as they rushed to catch up with her.
