When we last saw Braeden, he was being hauled off to the dungeon, his fate uncertain. After a month or so, he’s suddenly released with no explanation. and reunited with his commander and friend Prince Novitny and his trusty side-kick, Franca. Some creative punctuation and editing has been inflicted upon the following passage.
“Well it’s about time,” Novitny roared, clapping him in a rib-cracking embrace. “Thought that bitch was going back on her promise.”
“Sir,” Franca tugged at his sleeve,. “Please don’t talk about the Empress like that so loud in the middle of camp. Lots of unfriendlies about.”
“Everyone knows how I feel about that wicked hag, though you’re probably right,” he winked at Franca while steering Braeden into his tent. “If it hadn’t been for this clever girl I wouldn’t have figured out how to get you released.”
Inside the tent, Braeden collapsed into a chair while Novitny poked Franca in the ribs, “Don’t just stand around lieutenant; go see about getting the man some food. Looks like he hasn’t eaten in weeks.”
