Sample text

Wie wunderbar! Ich bin Vater! « sagte das Mädchen. »Nach deinem rohen Tun etwas so Empfindliches entstehen zu lassen! « Sie hob ihren Rock und führte seine Hände unter ihrem Umhang zu einem Knoten aus Bändern an ihrem Steißbein. Schneefrauen trugen Pelzhauben, Fellstiefel, einen hohen Pelzstrumpf an jedem Bein, der mit einem Hüftgurt verbunden war, und einen oder mehrere Pelzmäntel und Umhänge – es war eine praktische Kleidung und ähnelte der der Männer, wenn man von den lästigen Mänteln absah.

Um die Wahrheit zu sagen, die einzigen interessanten Leute, die ich während der langweiligen Reise kennenlernte, waren zwei alte Männer, die eines Lösegeldes wegen festgehalten wurden und mir etwas Quarmallisch und Hoch-Lankhmarisch beibrachten, und ein ausgemergelter junger Mann, der bei einem alten Zauberer in die Schule gegangen war. Dieser Bursche konnte mit dem Dolch umgehen und hatte keinen Respekt vor Legenden – ebensowenig wie ich oder mein Vater. MARA: Mach dir keine Gedanken. Das Leben wird aufregender für dich werden, wenn wir erst verheiratet sind.

Fafhrd blickte sich um und sah Mara grimmig her- überlächeln; das Mädchen lag auf zwei Ästen zu seiner Linken; ihr Kopf war etwa auf der Höhe seiner Schultern.
