"Well, a lowlife vandal could hardly afford such fine tools of the trade as I have. He would have slit the bird's neck already, made off with his money too. Plus, as you can see, I have such refinement and class." spouts the confident wolf

"So I see," said Harriet in a sarcastic voice--but with just a hint of lightheartedness to indicate that she was still only playing a character.

"If you do indeed have such refinement and class, sir," she said, "then let us put it to the test, shall we?"

The wolf raises an eyebrow to this, "And what would that test be?"

Harriet placed her bone in a trash can, wiped her face down, and put her paws on her hips as though she were Dusk's mother, and he had just tracked mud on the carpets.

"First of all, let's do something about that posture. Do you want to get a hunchback?"

"None of your excuses, young man," said Harriet, having just a little too much fun with the role. "Stand up straight. Chest out, stomach in, hands at your sides, eyes uncrossed."

The highwayman does as told, a little puzzled at the "eyes uncrossed" command

Harriet cleared her throat. "I said 'eyes uncrossed.'"

She sighed and rolled her eyes. "Oy, what am I going to do with him? Why me?" she said in an accent of a stereotypical Jewish mother. "Okay, next is diction. E-NUN-CI-ATE WHEN YOU SPEAK. CLEAR?"

"Aye, but my eyes are uncrossed, I can't uncross em n'more"

"Ah-ah-ah--E-NUN-CI-ATE. I want to hear every T--without spitting. That's crude."

Harriet tried to stifle a giggle.

The wolf frowned, "I don't spit... do I?"

Politely, Tom had slipped aside, doing his absolute best to stay in character. It proved difficult, but despite a few slipped giggles, he mostly succeeded. Rather than get involved, he simply waited and watched; it was too amusing to stop.

As did Ian; he was itching to play another song but wanted to wait out the rest of the "scene".

Sneaking quietly beside the gecko, while still facing the dueling pair, Tom whispered excitedly over to Ian "hey, what was the song you just played? I had no idea you could play a lute! That's so cool!"

Harriet shot a look in the direction of Tom and said, "Excuse me, do you have something to share with the rest of the courtroom?"

"Okay, Princess Harriet, I think you've had enough fun for now," said Mr. Hedgehog, coming back.

"Aww...." said Harriet, wishing she could have finished but realizing she had indeed gotten a little carried away with the role.

Mr. Hedgehog looked at everyone else. "Good day to you all. I hope my daughter wasn't too much of a bother to you."

"Dad...."

"Why, it was from The Winter's Tale! My favorite Shakespeare play." Ian brought the lute to his fingers and strummed a happy chord. "Act four, scene two. Autolycus, the happy rogue." He turned to Tom. "I can play almost any instrument with strings or a keyboard, y'know. Well, any Western one."

The gecko bowed at the sight of Mr. Hedgehog. "Your Majesty! I am glad to see you. Her Highness isn't a bother at all."

Dusk chuckled, turning to Mr Hedgehog, "She's been fine, though a certain Highwayman has been given a crash course in refinement and class"

Mr. Hedgehog smirked at Harriet. "Oh he has, has he?"

Harriet chuckled, turning red. "Yeah--I was just...having a little fun with the 'princess' role. He held him up, and I was trying to stand up for him."

"And I, Your Majesty," the gecko bowed again, "was strolling along with my lute! Another song, fair friends!"

Lawn as white as driven snow;
Cyprus black as e'er was crow;
Gloves as sweet as damask roses;
Masks for faces and for noses;
Bugle bracelet, necklace amber,
Perfume for a lady's chamber;
Golden quoifs and stomachers,
For my lads to give their dears:
Pins and poking-sticks of steel,
What maids lack from head to heel:
Come buy of me, come; come buy, come buy;
Buy lads, or else your lasses cry: Come buy.

The wolf chuckles heartily, "Eee, he can't 'alf sing can this Bard"
