With darkness setting in I wandered off to the bar for a beer. Beneath the lights I sketched away only stopping occasionally to drink deeply. I was joined on a crowded table by two warriors from the Lions and Henry their Knight Marshal. They seemed to appreciate what I was doing and we enjoyed a pleasant conversation as I was finishing the sketch.
It is always a pleasure to chat over a drink with friendly souls. Later that evening I kept a promise to the Lions to ensure my healing was at hand for their ritual, luckily all went well and I was able to enjoy the show without calling on the powers of Life.
