"Well dat be up ta yas. Ya wan' stay 'ere, dat be fine. Ya get back on ya box. But if yas wan' live, ya come feel da see breeze on ya."
"I have never been. It is near the sea I hear...?"All polite an' propah, but Doll look frighten'. Maybe she like bein' in dat cage. Troll be use' ta dat. Elfie scared oh wild place an' dis one be tiny, a lil wide-eyed rabbit. Maybe I play a little.
"Oh ya. Sun an' sea an' jungle."
"Oh ya, on dem islan' nearby. Darkspear islan', I might add. Wid raptas and tigers an' all maner o'dangerous ting. Jus' waitin' fa a tasty morsel."
"Dem gobble ya right up if ya don' learn ta move right."
"Now I feel you are just trying to scare me,"
"'ey der, elfie. What you doin' on dat box, eh? 'e 'ired ya ta bring in dem customer, eh?"I looks over at snot-boy by dem boxes. 'e like me even less now. Troll be use' ta dat. We bin makin' war, makin' peace an makin' baby since time began. We seen us empire rise, an' we seen us empire fall. Elfie tink 'e been aroun' so long dat 'e can fahget where 'e came from. 'e tink dat 'e ain' troll no more, 'e civilise', 'e superiah. Troll know 'e ain' civilise'. Troll know 'e jungle.
"Good evening... troll."Hehe. Elfie tongue-tied. Doll speak fah 'im:
"And I'm sure I don't know what you mean."Doll know jus' fine, I reckon. We play a little.
"Well why else a lady sittin' on a box den? Should ya no be dancin' or sometin'?"
"Dancing? Do I really look like that's something I would indulge in?"I shrugs. What wrong wid dancin? It be fun, eh? Ya can get all 'igh an' fancy wid ya civilise' way, but if ya no 'appy...
"I seen a lot o'dat roun' 'ere. I tink it be da custom..."
"I think it depends on the 'class' of elf you associate with."
