1. The Swordsman

"What kind of swordsman doesn't own a sword?"

"A very poor one, madame."

"You lack money?"

"Yes, but that's not why I lack a sword."

"Skill, perhaps? A lack of skill?"

"Again, yes, but that is not the reason why."

"Why, then?"

"I lack conviction. Without conviction, there is no point to a sword."

"You lack sense."

"Sense, conviction, it's all the same."

With that, she walked away, pleased to have left him in her past.
