Moril had the notion of frying the bread and onions together. Unfortunately, it was then so dark that he could not see to fry. The mixture he turned out of the frying-pan was extremely singed, and it was only eaten because everyone was very hungry. Then they settled down to sleep. It seemed to Moril, waking and resettling himself round the winejar during the night, that Kialan and Dagner kept watch, turn and turn about, until dawn broke.

Yet, if Ganner had had a hand in killing Clennen, this was the last place she ought to be—the last place any of them ought to be.
