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

I tried a headcut, which he parried; and I parried his riposte to my heart and cut at his wrist.

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.

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

"I guess so," he said, with a sigh. "It's true, that uneasy-lies-the-head bit. I don't know why we are driven to strive so for this ridiculous position. But you must recall that I've defeated you twice, mercifully granting you your life on a Shadow world the last occasion."

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

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

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

"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.

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

Eric loosened his blade in its scabbard.

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.

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.

"I know a way," he said, and then he glared at Dik, who promptly departed and closed the door behind him. I heard it snick shut.

"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."

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

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

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.

I moved around the desk.

"You want the throne," he said.

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.
