One Rendor, quite skinny and waving a rusty sabre, stood howling before the man on black armor bearing down on him. Sparhawk altered his swing slightly and sheared the man almost in two at the waist. The Rendor was hurled against the battlement by the force blow and the remaining shred of flesh ripped as the upper torso toppled outwards. The man's lower half caught up on one of the battlements, the legs threshing wildly. The Rendor's upper torso did not quite reach the ground below, but hung head downwards from a long rope of purple bowel that steamed in the cool night air.

Torak himself made the journey in a sillly-looking iron castle, complete with useless towers and ostentatious battlements. It had wheels on it, but it still took a herd of horses and about a thousands of grolims to pull it. I shudder to think about the amount of labour it took to clear a road through the forests of Gar og Nadrak for that ridiculous thing.

"Silk!" Garion exclaimed, catching the little man's arm in relief.
"What was that?" Belgarath asked, coming back around the corner.
"Brill," Silk replied blandly, pulling his Murgo robe back on.
"/Again?/" Belgarath demanded with exasperation. "What was he doing this time?"
"Trying to fly, last time I saw him." Silk smirked.
The old man looked puzzled.
"He wasn't doing it very well," Silk added.
Belgarath shrugged. "Maybe it'll come to him in time."
"He doesn't really have all that much time." Silk glanced out over the edge.
From far below - terribly far below - there came a faint, muffled crash; then, after several seconds, another. "Does bouncing count?" Silk asked.
Belgarath made a wry face. "Not really."
"Then I'd say he didn't learn in time," Silk said blithely.

"...Liselle's fairly well trained, and she's probably got two or three daggers hidden in various places." He [Belgarath] grinned slyly.
"I'd imagine Silk could tell you where they are", he added.
"Father!"Polgara gasped.
"You mean you didn't know, Pol? My goodness how unobservant of you".

Rebal struck an exaggerated pose and raised both arms over his head. He began to speak, intoning guttural words in a hollow, booming voice.
"Is that Styric?" Kalten whispered to Sephrenia. "It doesn't sound like Styric to me."
"It's gibberish," she replied scornfully.
Kalten frowned. "I don't think I've heard of them," he whispered. "What part of the world do the Gibbers come from?"
She stared at him, her face baffled.
"Did I say it wrong?", he asked. "Are they called the Gibberese, or maybe the Gibberenians? - the people who speak Gibberish, I mean."
"Oh, Kalten," she laughed softly, "I love you."
"What did I say?"
