It didn't take long for them to return.
It was only a few minutes before he heard footsteps.
The kicking bird ducked into the entrance and sat farther away, leaving more space between them.
A shadow stood at the entrance, and Dunbar thought there must be someone waiting.
Without thinking, he decided it must be a floating figure.
The kicking bird called softly, and the figure moved, tinkling me with a string of bells.
At this moment standing dancing boxing lowered his body, leaned over the entrance and entered.
Dunbar made haste to sit down, so that there was room for standing dancing fists to sit among them.
A few seconds later, she sat still.
He saw that she was dressed to the nines.
Her flat boots were sewn with bells on both sides, and she looked like a family heirloom.
It seemed unusual to be dressed in such a grand way, with rows and rows of small bones.
Actually, it's the teeth of a moose.
She leaned against his wrist, and wore a brass bracelet, and a tight necklace round her neck, and like a breastplate of tubular bones across his breast, it was also of tubular bones.
Her hair had just been washed, and it smelled, and it was in a braid, and it hung down behind her back, showing her cheekbones higher, and her features more clearly than ever.
Now, in his eyes, she looked more feminine, more delicate, and whiter.
For the lieutenant, the tent seemed to have been built for them to meet.
As she sat beside him, the lieutenant realized how much he wanted to see her.
She did not look at him.
As he kicked the bird and mumbled something to her, he made up his mind to say "hello" first.
As luck would have it, they all turned their heads, opened their mouths, and said, "hello."
Both of them had not expected to speak at the same time, and were embarrassed at the unexpected beginning.
Kicking a bird thought the accident a good omen.
He liked both of them and hoped they would hit it off.
The wizard chuckled to himself.
Then, pointing to Dunbar, he mumbled something like, "quick
You speak first.
"Hello," he said happily.
She looked up, as if she had been told to.
But he could see that she was not as hostile as before.
'she answered stiffly.
