     The sun had just risen from the horizon, with the morning dew still fresh upon the ground. A young leprechaun glanced at the buildings before him, before choosing to enter a large tavern. As he went in he observed the tall ceilings and the dark interior, with only a single beam of light entering through a lone window off to the left. Off the right stood a bar, which he figured could seat about fifteen.

Moments after the leprechaun entered, a grizzled old dwarf and a middle-aged man entered the building. While the man headed directly for the bar, the dwarf stopped and glared at the leprechaun with suspicion.

     Another leprechaun then walked in and then began speaking to the other leprechaun in an unrecognizable dialect. He was much older than the first leprechaun, with parts of his hair greying.
     
     All of a sudden they turned around and see a young girl in the entry way. She couldn't have been more than twelve, with blonde hair and brown eyes. Then all of a sudden she pulled a flail out from behind her cloak. It looked too big for her to hold, yet she then began to swing it around wildly while screaming.

The old dwarf, who by now had taken a spot in front of the bar, laughed at the young girl wielding such a weapon.

A middle-aged orc woman was running the bar, and she just rolled her eyes at the display.

     The little girl frowned at the dwarf, and then preceded to charge at him.

The dwarf's eyes widened as he tried to move out of the way, but accidentally tripped and fell flat on the floor in the process.

The entire fiasco drew the attention of the man at the bar and he turned his head to observe.

     The little girl then took the dwarf's spot at the bar. Content, she put her weapon away.

     "I'll have the usual!" she said to the orc in a small, innocent sounding voice.

The orc put "the usual" on the bar and slide it over to the girl.

The annoyed old dwarf stood up and glared at the upstart.

"You have a lot of nerve!" he declared indignantly.

    "No, you do. You took my spot." She replied confidently.

"I shall duel you for that spot!" the dwarf insisted, much to the amusement of the man at the bar.

     "I accept!" the girl screamed as she whipped out her flail and started to run toward the dwarf.

The dwarf pulled out his axe and adopted a defensive stance.

     The two leprechauns suddenly grabbed the little girl trying to stop her.

"What are you doing you meddling misfits! I mean to teach her a lesson!" the dwarf bellowed at the leprechauns.

"Shesh..." the orc bartender muttered.

     "The commander does not appreciate his daughter participating in duels." the older leprechaun replied.

     "The special force." A tall, 40-ish man said as he entered. "We're working on the name, but it is the most elite force in the... area."

"If your commander will not let his daughter duel, then let him fight me in her stead!" the dwarf said.

     The man stared at the nearly empty bar.

     "Please tell me you are joking."

"I meant a dwarf never surrenders territory without a fight!" the dwarf corrected himself.
