Nix nonchalantly drew a dagger to pair with his sword. “Things do often take a turn, I’ve found. Seems to be my luck. But listen, I can’t just teach lessons to all three of you. This goes the way it looks and I’ll probably have to kill two of you. You clear on that? You want to talk amongst yourselves a moment and decide who’ll die?”
“Listen to this one,” said the big one to moon face.
“He’s got big balls, I’ll give him that,” said moon face.
“Bigger than your pukey friend here, to that I can attest. Firsthand, as it were.” Nix shrugged. “I guess I need to start working on my explanation to the Guard for the two or three bodies they’ll soon find. I’ll start with something like: They were bunghole slubbers, Goodsir, and no one will miss them, and they got what was coming after a fair warning.”
The big one smirked and the two started down the steps of the porch, spacing themselves to come at Nix from different angles, while the puker eased forward from behind.
