‘WHEN?’ asked Valance from the other pit.
‘With our luck an hour or so after the others arrive and get us out,’ the wizard replied.

‘It will wear off,’ Chalk repeated.
‘Is it starting to rain?’ Valance asked as the soft pitter patter sound of rain could be heard above and a few raindrops fell in their respective pits.
‘I am going to skin that dwarf alive for this if I ever catch him,’ groaned Chalk.
