Part III

As I cautiously descend the stairs

I hear voices, though their words are indistinct I hesitate on my descent and wonder

Will their language be the same as my own Will they look as I do, for nothing else in this place

is familiar

Bolstering my courage, I continue on

As I reach the bottom of the stairs

The voices are louder, and I do understand their words I follow the sound of the voices, and enter a dining


Which goes silent upon my entry

Startled looks are exchanged, and the silence lengthens Just at the point where I was about to turn around and


Quite a handsome man approached me

And bowed!!
