A dark stranger appeared in the village shops one day. He was interested in what the alchemist had to offer.
He had some sort of magical powers…
making people do ridiculous things which they couldn’t control. Word had it from Braavos that someone just like him had sent stinging bees after a customer in the public house. Was it the same person in this pub?
His antics were not appreciated by anyone. Who was he? Where had he come from?
The man’s spells had not gone unnoticed. Nor had a meeting between him and a local woman.
This troubled Haldus. It could not be good news that Hivera had been talking to a warlock.
He must inform the king.
