“an incident involving my trousers”, well a’int we being all la de da tonight. The ‘orrible little midget didn’t know how his own trick worked. Being prodded in the buttocks with a blade isn’t my idea of a good night out, good thing for Mister Garrak that I know ’ow to put on a performance.
I was only up on stage in the first place because the Colonel thought it would be fun to volunteer me, I tell you, if he didn’t pay well, I’d be out of his employment like a shot — despite everything we’ve been through.
It was ‘is idea for me to go snooping around the theatre too. That’s how I ran into Mister Sutherby, yes, him with the voice. He was poking around the same sorts of things that I was taking an interest in, so I suggested a pooling of resources. Always useful to have a look out when you’re going somewhere you ain’t supposed to be.
I weren’t counting on being caught with me hands around a bloody puppet just as a man sized wooden monster turned up though.
