Lost for words

That first time…. His dry throat seized up and only a strangled gurgle emerged.
But they didn’t seem to mind, just thrust a brimming tankard of ale at him.

The second time was better, he knew then what was expected of him, was prepared for what would happen.

The third time was easy, and after that it became routine.

But at last he said ‘No more’, insisted that they choose another in his stead.

And then Sam got to see someone else struggle and stammer over their speech as they were elected Mayor of Michel Delving for the first time.
