- It came recently, - the prince has muttered. - stood here almost in a lap. Cried. Asked me. Wanted, that I have given out
- You the good fellow. I will learn you how to be disconnected during torture. It will help you.
He has grinned: - I am not afraid of torture. I will sustain. I am afraid only of sorcery. And what, if such how you, suddenly
are and will confuse me? And I in the sleep to it will tell not that it is necessary.
- People, brave spirit to "confuse" hardly, - I have answered. - hypnosis is good for weaklings. It first. And secondly, such
as I and my father, in a vicinity of two thousand germ hardly it is possible to find! And you wish to know, what thirdly? The
prince has interestedly nodded and has suddenly given a hand to me. It has free passed through my "raincoat". Varg has
scaredly drawn aside a hand.
- Miracles! - he has whispered.
- And thirdly, - I have continued, - I will tell that your father not simply so looked on you. What in a city it is created, you do
not know? Certainly, you do not know. And in a city revolt! The people have demanded to release you.
Delight fire has flashed in dark blue eyes of the prince - and has there and then gone out.
- The empty... Soldiers of the duke will suppress mutiny. It is a pity friends. They could to me... Could fit still to us! - correctly
you think, - I have praised it. - and still. The tendency is clear.
The further, the more difficult to your father to keep you in a dungeon. To you after all even charge have not shown.
He has gloomily grinned and has noticed: - About what you speak, Ulpin? What charge?! At us not Amorija, at us jurymen
are not present and there are no courts. I do not speak already about lawyers. We barbarians, really you have forgotten?
The duke, and the end on it will order! The father here has ordered to arrest me, well, I and am arrested. Ordered not to give
me food - and do not give me food! And by the way, which day I here sit? - The seventh.
- Hm!. It, what, hunger was going to exhaust me? - Under our data, - I have cautiously noticed, - food to you will give
- And you whence know? - Give with you we will agree, the friend. Such questions more to me do not set. And to my father
- especially. Not because we hide from you answers. For other reason. Any our answer will smell as sorcery, and we with the
father at all do not want, that you believed us sorcerers. We only modest friends of a science.
The prince poezhilsja.
- As, modest you... Well it is fine. And to pull out me will manage? Here it, a main point! I waited that the prince will set it.
- Yet time, - I have answered. - for business it is better to sit till to you in a dungeon.
On my eyes it began to be poured by anger. I understood it. To the prince it is insulting.
It released us of the whole two times. Also what? Suddenly he hears supposedly for business better to sit to it in a dungeon!
To it, the young, strong, vigorous young man, the soldier, the prince, the knight, - to sit in chains in a hole mouse, on one
water! To whom it would not be insulting?! Anticipating its claims, I am short and accessible to it have explained, what
advantage can be for business if it remains in a dungeon, and what damage happens, if he runs away now. The prince
listened to me, at first, the truth, tore to interrupt with insulting words, then listened, having opened a mouth; and when I have
finished, it has shaken a head and has said: - Now I understand, why and your father Justina is afraid of you. And you speak,
you modest friends of a science! - a policy and psychology - an essence the higher sciences. Without knowing a shower of
the person, you will not learn the person to win. It is senseless to forge the weapon from a steel if you do not own the
weapon in yourself.
- Tell... How old are you, the friend? - Twenty two, - I have smiled, - we with you coevals.
