I was destined to go on this treacherous quest with you. An adventure I’m sure few gnomes have ever even dreamed of, let alone attempted. Besides, I love this kind of stuff, it’s exhilarating.

I told you what happened.” “I don’t think so.” “Are you sure? I must have. While I was stirring the soup last night.” “You talking about all kinds of stuff,” I told him. “But you never mentioned your wife.” He shrugged. “Maybe not. I’m not as young as I used…
