Chapter 3 - to help or not

Malacaan woke slowly the next morning ... light-and heavy in the head, he got up from the bed. What a night! He thought to himself. He had before tasted wine but not beer, and certainly not in the quantities they got him to drink that night. He got up and got himself some water in his head so he could wake up. It was there he discovered that someone sat on the floor and looked at him. He looked down and started smiling. For his feet sat a small black and white cat and looked up at him. "What are you doing here little friend" said Malacaan and gathered the little cat up. "You may we rather give something to eat" Malacaan went downstairs and into the taproom. The sun shone through the windows, it looked to be a beautiful day ... the inn sat his friends already and ate, they looked up when he entered. "Malacaan though! So did you get the final up" came from Marinus. "And where have you gathered the little guy up?" Said Marcus, with his mouth full of food. Malacaan laughed and sat down at the other ... "This guy was sitting in my room when I woke up" replied Malacaan finally, and put the cat down on the floor, where it curled up under his chair. Alvior looked a little long, the cat's sense of security by the faun. But did not reflect on it. he is a faun he thought, and went on eating in peace. After a short space of time where talk just went loose and fixed on the evening's events, traveled Marinus up and found a large map of the local region "friends ... I'm sorry to have to say this," he began, and the others at the table so up at him. All! Marcus, Alvior, also Malacaan turned his attention towards Marinus. What happens now he thought wondering more because Marinus's face had been so seriously ... "we need to agree on where to we go ..." said Marinus final and began to designate different points on the map. "As we talked about yesterday, so this area is barely a day's journey further north. Up near the mountain range to the fauns homeland. But what did you two meet?" "Of what I have heard about from other corners of the city it is shown the place that we must seek" replied Marcus. Now Malacaan chose finally to interfere in his friends 'talk' "what is it looking for? If I can help you then I would very much like" the other three looked at each Malacaan with a face that showed that they had forgotten their friend." Of course, if you'll tell me what you are looking for" said malacaan and took a look over Marinus cards. Malacaan had not learned to read a map, but he could read and recognize many of the landmarks described, as he had been taught, and was familiar with... the others looked at him, but said nothing. Nor Marinus said something and his face lay in the dark folds. "It's the case of a woman," said Marinus after a long break. "My wife has been kidnapped"...
