"Perhaps the Dwarf's secrets will be discovered before we reach Stonehaven," Radek answered, turning to face the man who'd asked a question of him. "As to his trusting us, he'd be a fool to trust us fully... but that is a double-edged sword, for if he cannot trust us, then he has hired us in vain." He frowned thoughtfully and shook his head. Then, his frown vanished and he smiled faintly. "But let us speak no more of our employer's secrets."
He glanced back to the Dwarf and chuckled, saying, "Dwarves can be ill-tempered when they are being suspected of excessive secrecy..." Raising his voice, he added, "... isn't that right, Master Dwarf?" He turned fully to face the Dwarf now. "And while we're at it, I don't believe you've told us your name?"
