Now don't get the wrong idea. I'm damn good. It's just that he seemed better.

"Pity," said I, "and how shall we put things aright?"

He parried this and kicked a small stool between us. I set it aside, hopefully in the direction of his face, with my right toe, but it missed and he had at me again.

"Oh, damnable brother" he said, retreating. "Report has it Random accompanies thee."

I kept backing away, and the fear and the knowledge came upon me: I knew I still couldn't take him. He was a better man than I was, when it came to the blade. I cursed this, but I couldn't get around it. I tried three more elaborate attacks and was defeated on each occasion. He parried me and made me retreat before his own attacks.

"This is true," said I. "More than one of us are assembled against you."

"Well, when it comes to things, Corwin. Poorly, on other counts, however."

And he lunged then and beat me back, and I felt suddenly that for all my work he was still my master. He was perhaps one of the greatest swordsmen I had ever faced. I suddenly had the feeling that I couldn't take him, and I parried like mad and retreated in the same fashion as he beat me back, step by step. We'd both had centuries under the greatest masters of the blade in business. The greatest alive, I knew, was brother Benedict, and he wasn't around to help, one way or the other. So I snatched things off the desk with my left hand and threw them at Eric. But he dodged everything and came on strong, and I circled to his left and all like that, but I couldn't draw the point of his blade from my left eye. And I was afraid. The man was magnificent. If I didn't hate him so, I would have applauded his performance.

"Then it is between the two of us now, Corwin," he said. "I am your elder and your better. If you wish to try me at arms, I find myself suitably attired. Slay me, and the throne will probably be yours. Try it. I don't think you can succeed, however. And I'd like to quit your claim right now. So come at me. Let's see what you learned on the Shadow Earth."

"Don't we all?" I told him.

I parried his attack, and he mine. Then I lunged, was parried, was attacked, and parried again myself.

"This is true," said I. "More than one of us are assembled against you."

"The fact that I was able to occupy the throne," he replied. "Try and take it."

"This is true," said I. "More than one of us are assembled against you."

And his blade was in his hand and mine in mine.

And his blade was in his hand and mine in mine.

"What an enormous chutzpah you possess," I told him. "What makes you better than the rest of us, and more fit to rule?"

Then there were some alarms and excursions in the hall outside. Eric's retainers were coming, and if he didn't kill me before they arrived, then I was confident that they'd do the job - probably with a bolt from a crossbow.

Now don't get the wrong idea. I'm damn good. It's just that he seemed better.

I tried a very fancy attack I'd learned in France, which involved a beat, a feint in quarte, a feint in sixte, and a lunge veering off into an attack on his wrist.

"Then it is between the two of us now, Corwin," he said. "I am your elder and your better. If you wish to try me at arms, I find myself suitably attired. Slay me, and the throne will probably be yours. Try it. I don't think you can succeed, however. And I'd like to quit your claim right now. So come at me. Let's see what you learned on the Shadow Earth."

I nicked him and the blood flowed.

"This is true," said I. "More than one of us are assembled against you."

Eric loosened his blade in its scabbard.

I kept backing away, and the fear and the knowledge came upon me: I knew I still couldn't take him. He was a better man than I was, when it came to the blade. I cursed this, but I couldn't get around it. I tried three more elaborate attacks and was defeated on each occasion. He parried me and made me retreat before his own attacks.
