He raised his voice. "Someone's coming. From the fort. We saw him running, it was too dark to tell who it was." He scowled. "Sky looked copper in places."

A slim little girl, as thin and as long as a ruler, with copper-red hair, slipped up.
"Come, Copper," said the troll-wife, "tell this fine lady that the brownies of the tree buy my pies."
The girl nodded, slowly, eying her. "So do we."
