Well, I certainly hope you don’t expect me to fuss over you while those ribs are healing, Paladin. I didn’t— I never asked you to— You’ll have to go to your precious peasant girl for that! I’m riding back to Turello…today! Oh, dear. I don’t blame her, Talia. Corin seems pretty upset. What can the boy be thinking, chasing after some common drifter?

What are you—?! But how will it look to Dessa if I—? I said VEER OFF! Ahhh! Wha—?! Unghh… God’s teeth! …Somebody do something! He’ll be trampled to death if that horse doesn’t settle! I can’t watch…!
