Aren't you the amadan to be biting the tongue between your teeth?John Splendid
The Amadan was angry with them, and ordered them off instantly.
He asked the Amadan who he was, and what he had done to have the impudence to come there and meet him.
The Amadan struck at him with his sword, and the sword glanced off as it might off steel.
But the Amadan drew his sword at the same time, and both went at it.
