“Doctooor!” hollered Rani. “Dooooooctor!”
“Yes? What do you want?” asked a voice.
They both spun towards the alleyway that had opened up beside them to find a tall man with a mop of curly blonde hair eyeing them. He was dressed in such clashing colours that both of them had the first impression of his perhaps being a player from a theatre troupe, except his demeanor was perfectly serious.

“Who do you have there?” asked another voice, and an elderly, grandmotherly lady carrying a knitting bag came up the alley, peering around him to take a look at them.
“How should I know? I’m not a mind-reader,” the man snorted.
“Yes you are, you’re just too polite to do it,” she said.
