Here, take my sword. The heavens are being stingy with their light. Take this, too. I’m tired and feeling heavy, but I can’t sleep. Merciful powers, keep away the nightmares that plague me when I rest!
Give me my sword! who's there?
You’re not asleep yet, sir? The king’s in bed. He’s been in an unusually good mood and has granted many gifts to your household and servants. This diamond is a present from him to your wife for her boundless hospitality
Because we were unprepared for the king’s visit, we weren’t able to entertain him as well as we would have wanted to
Everything’s OK. I had a dream last night about the three witches. At least part of what they said about you was true
I don’t think about them now. But when we have an hour to spare we can talk more about it, if you’re willing
If you stick with me, when the time comes, there will be something in it for you
’ll do whatever you say, as long as I can do it with a clear conscience
