As Dorhak speaks to the group outside, Raddok translates both sides of the conversation to the group members close by. He has noticed that a few have disappeared (probably heading back to handle the sleeping group with the book, he earlier had mused, but translating now kept his attention focused to the group outside). As Dorhak explains their presence to the dwarves (dwarves?) outside, he begins to find himself grinning - their sturdy Captain certainly knows how to trim the beard (uh, no beards?) of those strangers outside. Concise words Dorhak speaks, with no diplomatic padding on them, but very dwarven. Raddok, grinning, had trouble to keep from laughing at the straight way Dorhak spoke. Nice to have things clearly out in the open, for once - no mollycoddling here.
Well, now, he wonders, as he straightened up in pride at Dorhak's forthrightness, would they accept the Captain's angry explanation, and offer peace - or a truce? Or would there still be a fight? Thinking of that, Raddok suddenly remembers the sleeping enemy behind them in the cave - they seemed awfully quiet... He finds himself feeling very alert as Dorhak's words end.
