The rakshasa blinks and then glares, takes a deep breath.
"Yes, yes, of course I have them, tucked away safely never you fear. As for the door, it merely opens onto my vault, those small treasures I have accumulated."
He takes another breath and shifts slightly, getting more comfortable.
"Now, I want you to consider my offer. You won't get a better deal. Still, if it's Kalepopolis and Orisini that you want... well, handing them over to you is, shall we say, a trifle complicated. You see, they have been sent into the Vivified Labyrinth. I won't retrieve them for you, but I shall tell you the secret of the elephant statue in the garden, how to access the caverns below the palace and where to seek the secret door that leads into the labyrinth. So what say you? Do we have a deal?"
He puts his head to one side and smiles.
Graxer, you are convinced that every word spoken is true.
