Tell you a tale, you say?
What kind of tale, sweeting?
Oh that tale, yes, I know that tale. I’ve heard it. I suppose it’s well enough. Don’t you want a new tale, poppet? Something you don’t know the end of?
Well, what would you say if I said I’d tell you that tale, but I’ll just change one small thing?
Just one detail.
