The Price of Demand (Dialogue Edit 3)


(Altman Dolet) “I’m jumping to conclusions. I should know better. I’m a little unsettled, that’s all.”

(Waldon Sias) “Yer not the first I’ve heard muttering to himself today, y’aren’t. Nobody’s feelin’ right after yesterday. But the tower’s up, and on schedule.”

(Altman Dolet) “And a fine job, Sias. The men have been quick on their feet; the scaffolding’s all down already? Everything packed up and moved to the new market project site?”

(Waldon Sias) “It is, aye. They didn’t want to linger by the tower more’n they had to. Can’t say as I blame ‘em. Work’s likely to progress faster now, but not for the reasons I’m lookin’ for.”

(Altman Dolet) “If they start getting careless, they’ll only make all this ridiculous talk of so-called ‘bad luck’ worse.”

(Waldon Sias) “Aye. Let’s be off then. I’ll show you what we’ve got for the market. The ground should be cleared for the levelin’, an’ the first temporary barracks is finished.”
