Drakestail Who Goes to Get His Money Back

Take a tip from Drakestail here. If you loaned the king your money and you want it back, take your allies with you. Make room for them in your gizzard, which means cleaning out everything that’s stuck in your craw.

I made lots of room in my gizzard. I made a place for Fox, Ladder, River, and even Wasp’s Nest. I swallowed them and gave them a nice resting place inside, and when they were needed, oh, my, did they ever help me get the business done!
