Book 5: The Scrapyard of Insufferable Arrogance — Part III: Handle With Care


Tagon: Corporal T'beki, these slavers are your own people. Kreelies trading in Kreelies.
Tbeki: Oh, and you humans never trade in your own kind?
Tagon: Not for food. At least I don't think so. Maybe back before first contact.
Tbeki: Yeah. . . Meeting other races really does seem to be the best cure for being barbarians.
Tagon: So how'd you do in the pool?
Tbeki: I'm out. I picked 10 for surrender, and we only got 8.
