They settled themselves round it, squatting or sitting cross-legged in a circle. that they had been wearing capacious leather-based pouches from which they now drew gobbets of rank-smelling meat and bottles of fired clay. The sounds of tearing flesh and gurgling drinks have been extra to the crackle of the flames, via grunts and belches and the occasional growl while one Vandaayo paid an excessive amount of cognizance to another’s victuals.
