Misenderstanding Cleared Up

The Never Ending Quest - Episode 21802

Ignoring Gilder's question for the moment, Fred concentrated on trying to find an answer for Astra that would calm her down. Not realising that she had misheard him, he assumed that it was the word "horror" that she had objected to. "I'm sorry," he stammered. "It was a slip of the tongue. I didn't mean to call you a horror."

The scowl left Astra's face and she withdrew her dagger from Fred's throat. "Ah, I see," she said. "I thought you said something else. 'A disease-ridden horror' isn't exactly complimentary, but I've been called worse."

"You seem to allow your slave a remarkable amount of leeway, Allarian," Gilder said, as Fred tried to regain his composure. "She not only carries a weapon, but you let her threaten you with it. And you dress her remarkably well, too. But I'm sure I can persuade her to show me a proper respect once I am her owner. Now, what is your price for her?"

  1. Fred still wants to keep Astra. Imagine how impressed everyone will be back home when they find he has an Aqualarian princess for a slave.
  2. His recent near-death experience has changed Fred's mind, and he accepts Gilder's offer.
  3. Astra decides that enough is enough. Whatever happens to her if she reveals her true identity could hardly be worse than being haggled over as a supposed slave.
