Book 9: The Body Politic — Part I: King for a Day


Narrator: Aboard the Mercenary Warship Touch And Go
Captain Tagon: Corporal NIcholson, how are you today?
Nick: Ummm. . . Fine sir.
Captain Tagon: You're a good-natured guy. How would you feel if I told you we're going to extract General Xinchub so that Petey can put him on trial?
Nick: No trial. I wanna rip that fat monster into a dozen pieces an' feed 'em to something that chews for a long time.
Captain Tagon: Ohhh-kay then. I probably need to find a different lie.
Nick: Glad to help, sir.
