“Now see here, my fine fellow,” Ketil countered. “I am not the sort to give pep talks. You have only to look upon this grim face to know this to be true. But I see no reason why you could not go into business one way or another. Dylath Leen, for instance, is a debauched city which never rests. There are folk of varying degrees of ill repute milling about day and night, and they are looking for a good meal. If you have an eatery which is open all night, I can guarantee that few of them will care that you are a ghoul.”
“I will consider yer thoughtful words, Guv,” Little John stated, wiping his eyes on his sleeve. “I could give ‘em a fine, simple meal at me tavern. I thank yer kindly, Old China!”

And don't we all need pep talks from time to time. And speaking for myself kindness if much more likely to reduce me to tears (witness Little John wiping his eyes) than its opposite.ReplyDelete
Sounds like Little John has a new purpose.ReplyDelete
I like Little John's brogue. Ketil makes a good point.ReplyDelete
Sounds like a good business opportunity there!ReplyDelete
Somehow I think the path to business success can never be as straightforward as Ketil proposes.ReplyDelete
Right, always a good idea to investigate the possibilities. A nice hopeful take on things today. Enjoyed the snippet.ReplyDelete
A restaurant run by ghosts and ghouls? I'd love to read about their customers.ReplyDelete
There's always a way to make things work out . . . even for ghouls.ReplyDelete
Ketil obviously means well.ReplyDelete
