Paul watched the rolling, ugly man set himself back in motion, veer toward the training table with the load of weapons, saw the nine-string baliset slung over Gurney's shoulder with the multipick woven through the strings at the head of the fingerboard.
Gurney laughed, and he swung into "Galacian Girls," his multipick a blur over the strings as he sang:

like consuming flames,
Try a Caladanin daughter!"
