“You are successful more oft than not my friend.”

Gollaon nodded his thanks at the implied compliment.  “Besides, I have just reacquired one of these.”  He held up a necklace.

Voddick smiled.  “Ah, good to see.  Those sorts of necklaces have gotten us out of more than one scrape.  And into one or two as I recall.”

“Why?  It pays well,” replied Gollaon.  “And we are in a city again.”  He gestured to the beautiful buildings around them.
