"So in spite of that coat of fur you are a daughter of Eve," Sidaj said as she approached. She was a tall and strikingly beautiful blonde, very pale-skinned and dressed all in white.
"I'm a human being rather than another talking lion, if that's what you mean. My name's Astra. Odd! I very nearly said Artsa. I can't see that the fur is much of a disguise. I liked my hair better when it was red, and mostly confined to my scalp, though I must admit that I'm a lot warmer now. Or at least I was until you entered the clearing, when it suddenly seemed to get colder."
"As you've probably gathered, I am Sidaj. Nalsa has no doubt told you bad things about me, but as you've just discovered he has a tendency to leave his followers in the lurch. Why not join me instead? I could remove that annoying fur for you and provide you with clothes. And if you happen to have a sweet tooth, you can have all the Turkish delight that you can eat."
