Chapter 17

"And these monsters exist?" Lord Saladin asked, his voice grave.

Eido nodded nervously.

"I have ample evidence for their existence. I know that they have flaming pumpkin heads, and that they're filled with candy," Eido said stiffly. "And loot. They are also filled with loot."

Lord Saladin considered this. Eido could not discern what he might be thinking.

"But I question Glint's conclusions about their origins," she added.

The Iron Lord stared her down.

"You heard about this from Glint?"

"Yes, I—"

"I don't have time for this," Saladin said, and walked away.
