He leered at her and began licking his lips again, just as his friend came rushing round the corner, slightly out of breath.

Beth turned to see her brother, legs apart, standing his ground. He was smiling. He recovered in time to block the next punch, feint, and then land one that took Dickhead by surprise. He fell on one knee, but was quickly back on his feet before taking another swing at Danny.

He travelled the sinews of trade and war out of necessity, and exerted as much choice in those travels as was possible.
