"This is a Tarma and Kethry story, and even I have to admit that it's funny. Writers have been driven to despair trying to make me laugh; but here's proof it can be done."--Marion Zimmer Bradley
Kethry reached for the coins, and froze, her hand outstretched. There was something there that was not a coin.
"Where did this come from?" she asked, stirring the coins with her fingernail, and turning up something that looked like a coin, but wasn't.
It was about the size of a copper-piece, but was bronze, not copper, and inscribed with odd symbols.
Tarma looked at it, her expression puzzled. "Dond know," she replied. "Wid da change, maybe. Wad is id?"
Kethry decided that there was nothing more to lose by picking the thing up, and her jaw clenched. "You must have gotten this in with your change," she said, angrily. "From those priests. This is why we've been having all this bad luck, dammit! It's a cursed coin; there's a sect of Lurchan that makes these blasted things."
