Eric loosened his blade in its scabbard.

"The fact that I was able to occupy the throne," he replied. "Try and take it."

There was blood dripping from his right wrist. His hand was still steady but I had the feeling then that under other circumstances, by fighting a defensive fight, I just might be able to wear him down with that wrist injury going against him, and perhaps I could get through his guard at the proper moment when he began to slow.

I tried a headcut, which he parried; and I parried his riposte to my heart and cut at his wrist.

"It wasn't that merciful," I said. "You know where you left me, to die of the plague. The first time, as I remember, it was pretty much a draw."

"What an enormous chutzpah you possess," I told him. "What makes you better than the rest of us, and more fit to rule?"

"The fact that I was able to occupy the throne," he replied. "Try and take it."

I parried his attack, and he mine. Then I lunged, was parried, was attacked, and parried again myself.

He parried this and kicked a small stool between us. I set it aside, hopefully in the direction of his face, with my right toe, but it missed and he had at me again.

"What an enormous chutzpah you possess," I told him. "What makes you better than the rest of us, and more fit to rule?"

I moved around the desk.

"I know a way," he said, and then he glared at Dik, who promptly departed and closed the door behind him. I heard it snick shut.

"This is true," said I. "More than one of us are assembled against you."

"Don't we all?" I told him.

Eric loosened his blade in its scabbard.

"This is true," said I. "More than one of us are assembled against you."

I nicked him and the blood flowed.

"Pity," said I, "and how shall we put things aright?"

"Then it is between the two of us now, Corwin," he said. "I am your elder and your better. If you wish to try me at arms, I find myself suitably attired. Slay me, and the throne will probably be yours. Try it. I don't think you can succeed, however. And I'd like to quit your claim right now. So come at me. Let's see what you learned on the Shadow Earth."

"Oh, damnable brother" he said, retreating. "Report has it Random accompanies thee."

And he lunged then and beat me back, and I felt suddenly that for all my work he was still my master. He was perhaps one of the greatest swordsmen I had ever faced. I suddenly had the feeling that I couldn't take him, and I parried like mad and retreated in the same fashion as he beat me back, step by step. We'd both had centuries under the greatest masters of the blade in business. The greatest alive, I knew, was brother Benedict, and he wasn't around to help, one way or the other. So I snatched things off the desk with my left hand and threw them at Eric. But he dodged everything and came on strong, and I circled to his left and all like that, but I couldn't draw the point of his blade from my left eye. And I was afraid. The man was magnificent. If I didn't hate him so, I would have applauded his performance.

"This is true," said I. "More than one of us are assembled against you."

"The fact that I was able to occupy the throne," he replied. "Try and take it."

"This is true," said I. "More than one of us are assembled against you."

And his eyes were wide with amaze and his voice heavy with that which men call sarcasm, and I can't think of a better word, as he replied:
