Chapter 16:  Kondor 177
Table of Contents
Previous chapter:  Brown 200

With nowhere pressing to be, Kondor dallied in the dining hall after the afternoon dinner, snacking on baked sweets.  It occurred to him that he was going to get fat if he kept eating sweets and didn’t exercise, but then he could probably find someone to work with him sparring with the mace, which was practice he needed.

As he ate another orange for the juice, a young man, about his apparent age, approached.  He watched this, and then the man spoke.

“Thrice honored hero of the realms,” he began.  Joe thought that awfully pretentious.

“Call me Joe,” he said.

“Indeed, they said you were modest.  I am called Mohammed.”

“Have a seat, if you wish, or help yourself to some dessert.”

“Thank you.”  Mohammed took one of the rolls and began to eat it.

“So, what can I do for you?” Kondor asked, recognizing that the man had come to him with some purpose in mind.

“I would like you to marry my sister.”
