|Don Alejandro orders his men to find the renegade.|
Ernesto, the master swordsman, and his cohorts ran through the town, from dawn until late in the afternoon, past the fountains, down streets and through alleys, finally emerging at the far corner of the market square. Their scornful leader had scheduled the rendezvous for a report. He regarded his men with punitive glares.
"Well, fools?! Where is he?" thundered the don.

Don Alejandro positioned himself behind his men. "You will not survive this day, bastardo. And after I kill you, I will have the hand of Francesca de Morella. Ha ha ha haaa!"
