Wil takes a deep breath. "You know old Dunstan died two days ago?"
"Yes, in the evening," Aldus says, rolling his sleeves down. "They came for my help, since they found him near here."
"You saw him?"
"Yes, but not for long. Why?"
"The mayor is saying it's murder."
"What?" Cyrward blurts.
"But I saw no injuries," Aldus says. "And why would anyone want to kill old Dunstan?"
"The mayor says the rebels did it to get at him," Wil says, and can't help looking at Cyrward. "Since Dunstan was his retainer."
Cyrward bristles. "W - they did not!"
