“He loved me little enough before. And I’m not alone—you were singled out to share in his displeasure, if you’ll recall.” Roland smiled as he spoke, as if it were a jest, but Oliver frowned.

“Yes, but now he has reason for it, and is being sent off to treat with our enemy.”

“Don’t worry so much.”

“I wish you’d worry a little more,” Oliver sighed, and followed Roland out onto the field.


It came out a little crunched, I think. But I had fun rereading The Song of Roland - hadn't looked at it for years.
