The guard watched as the portly, balding man in symbol-spangled robes sauntered up to portal.
“No one’s allowed here,” the guard said. He tightened his grip on his halberd.
“That’s almost always true,” the man said, mopping sweat from his wrinkled brow, “but as you can plainly see, I am Her Imperial Majesty, the Dread Queen of this realm. Let me pass.”
The guard nearly fumbled his halberd in his haste to unlock and open the portal, all the way mumbling a string of apologies. The pudgy magic-user patted the guard reassuringly as he passed through.
“Make sure you lock up after me,” the magic-user said with a grin.
