  10. He knew he had to tell his sister, Nimyx, right away; she had warned him that something like this could happen.

    “Sister!” he yelled frantically. “I have terrible news! One of my beloved gnome shaving mugs has broken!”

    “Oh no!” she cried, her purple eyes wide with horror. “You must bring the pieces to me, right away! Right away, or terrible things will happen!”
