While avoiding the chainmen, there's only one way she can go. As she gets closer to the wall, a figure launches itself out of the wall. Without enough time to react, the figure bears her to the ground. She recognizes Captain Bibliography, and can tell he's wearing armor under his robe; he's too heavy to struggle against, and he's pressing his left forearm against her throat. His right arm pull back, and a dagger flashes in the light reflected from the snow. He stabs her twice, once in each eye.
"I meant," said Iplsore bitterly, "what is there in this world that makes living worthwhile?"
Death thought about it.
"CATS," he said eventually, "CATS ARE NICE."
