Roger de Conde spoke no English, and yet she had plainly heard English words upon this man's lips as he addressed the red giant.
The time required for the evolution of a star from red giant to red dwarf is not known, but it must be very great.
But the question as to how the red giant stars were formed has received less satisfactory and precise answers.
The red giant was a medicine man, for he clashed and rattled an enormous gourd full of bowlders.
Bottles hesitated; the company shuddered out: "'Tis the red giant."

"Norman of Torn dares ride where he will in all England," boasted the red giant.
|red giant |
A giant star that has a relatively low surface temperature, giving it a reddish or orange hue. Red giants are non-main-sequence stars positioned in the upper right of the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram. They are not massive stars but rather late, expanded stages of lower-mass main-sequence stars that have exhausted the hydrogen in their core and are fusing their remaining hydrogen into helium in a luminous outer shell. The Sun is expected to become a red giant in about 5 billion years, expanding to 70 times its current size and bringing its surface extremely close to Earth's present orbit. See more at star.
