"I can't believe you sometimes."

"You and me both."

"This is what I get for letting you drink."

"You think they could tell I was drunk?"

"No normal man gets drunk from one mug of ale, so I doubt it."

"The misery of a quick metabolism I'm afraid."

"Explains why you're so skinny."

"I believe that was from malnutrition."

"Pshh. When we were with the Butcher you had plenty of cash to eat up."

"You'd be surprised how much gold it takes to brew potions. A finely crafted alembic is months of wages for a normal man."

"Sure it wasn't you wasting it on that girl?"

"Hmm, perhaps. But I wouldn't call that wasting."

"Always the charmer."

"You wouldn't be with me if I wasn't."

"Fuck off."

"Thinking about Zauberia, does it snow here?"

"In Merravale? Doubt it."


"It was snowy in Jaerim, we may pass through on our way home."

"I'd like that. I miss the cold."

"This far south is too hot for me. The Barrens was a nightmare."

"Do you remember old man Riker?"

"Yeah. What about him?"

"Oh nothing. The other day I just remembered when he used to pay us a silver piece an hour to shovel his snow. And you'd make me do all the work but we still split the profits."

"Tables have turned now, huh."

"Don't think I can't still slit a throat."

"That girl made you soft."

"She had a name you know."

"I know."

"And she didn't make me soft."

"She did. You left the Butcher for her."

"I left because I wanted to."

"And why was that?"

"Life is better when you stop looking at blood every day."

"Maybe. I wouldn't know."

"You should try it."

"I'll pass."

"It won't bring them back you know."

"Don't care."

"It'll just make you feel empty."

"Don't care."

"Do you miss the snow too?"

"I'm going to sleep."

"Goodnight Zander."
