“Oh, of course you can… You just need more practice. Let’s do it again, from the second part!” Replied the little mummer, deadly serious. For an instant, Grenn thought his friend was imitating the harsh voice of Ser Alliser. They just had some hours to learn the whole oath. Tonight they would be in the septon, reciting the sacred words and Pyp learnt his lines as easily as any play with the mummers, but Grenn... was still Grenn.
“I will go first: 'I shall wear no crowns and…' ” Pyp just raised his eyebrows expectantly “'… aaaand?”'
