    “Any sign of them yet? he asked. Will looked at him. 'Yes', he said. 'A party of fifty Scotti came though just twenty minutes ago'.
    Really? Horace looked startled. He wasn't fully awake yet. Will rolled his eyes to heaven. 'Oh, my word, yes', he said. 'They were riding on oxen and playing bagpipes and drums. Of course not,' he went on. 'If they had come past, I would have woken you-if only to stop your snoring'.
    I don't snore', Horace said, with dignity. Will raised his eyebrows. 'Is that so?' he said. 'Then in that case, you'd better chase out that colony of walruses who are in the tent with you...of course you snore.”
    John Flanagan, The Siege of Macindaw

    “I'll be getting you for this,' Halt had told him as he dabbed the diguisting mixture on the worst of the cuts. 'That soot is filthy. I'll probably come down with half a dozen infections.'
    Probably,' Horace had replied, distracted by his task. 'But we'll only need you for today.'
    Which was not a very comforting thought for Halt.”

    “Ow!" said Horace as the Ranger's fingers probed and poked around the bruise.
    Did that hurt?" Halt asked, and Horace looked at him with exasperation.

    “Do you think you could persuade that horse of yours to stay with the other horses for a minute or two?” he said with a mock severity. “Otherwise he’ll wind up believing he’s one of us.”
    He’s been driving Halt crazy since we found your tracks,” Horace put in. “He must have picked up your scent and known it was you we were following, although Halt didn’t realize it.”
    At that, Halt raised an eyebrow. “Halt didn’t realize it?” he repeated. “And I suppose you did?”
    Horace shrugged. “I’m just a warrior,” he replied. “I’m not supposed to be the thinker. I leave that to you Rangers.”

    Shoot him," he said shortly. Will shook his head, grinning.
    Can't," he said. "My bowstring's broken."
    Then run and hide," said Gilan, between gritted teeth.
    But there's a cliff," Horace pointed out. "A sheer drop behind him and an angry axman coming at him."
    What do I do?" prompted Will.
    Gilan took a deep breath and lookd them both in the eye, one after the other.
    Jump off the cliff. It'll be less messy that way.”

    “Oh, it's a case of 'they think I'll think that they'll do A, so they'll do B because I wouldn't think they'd think of that but then because I might think I know what they're thinking they'll do A after all because I wouldn't think they'd think that way,' Will said”
