If you don’t feel like telling us your troubles, I’ll coldcock the first guy that asks a leading question. But I strongly recommend that you unload. Little thing you might not know, having spent so many centuries alone-out in deep space: sometimes, just naming your burden helps. ” Finn thought it over. “You may be right, Michael. You always have been so far. In fact, you have stated my problem. I am alone. I have been alone for centuries. ” “The hell you say,” Long-Drink burst out. “Why, counting the regulars that ain’t in tonight, I make it about a hundred and fifty close friends you’ve got.

A merry crew, one and all. ” Her eyes widened-in horror. “God, no! ” She staggered. “Christ, that was close. ” “No, tonight is Tall Tales Night-and I’ll tell you, it takes a lot to qualify as a tall tale in Callahan’s. We’ve had a real-talking dog, for instance. And a whole slew of time travelers. ” I waved. ” She turned and saw him, and stood very still.
