Laurence had to admit, it was rather amusing to watch the Commander and his wife. Where he had perceived, correctly, that Vimes was the Commander at heart, it was hilarious to see him practically submit to his wife as soon as she even glared at him.
"Samuel Vimes! Shouldn't you have asked me before you told Havelock that we would take in this stranger?"
Laurence wasn't sure if Vimes saw the glint of mischief and amusement in his wife's eyes, but he let it be, for now. He did miss Rolands now, now that he started to think about it. Maybe because she and Lady Sybil were so similar.
"Well, I figured...well, it wasn't exactly his request..." Vimes stammered. Laurence, through his efforts to not break into a grin, noticed that Sally was having trouble as well. She had a hand covering her mouth, and he could see her lips turning up slightly as she slowly lost her battle with smiling.
"Lady Sybil, I hear that Temeraire is not the sort of dragon you

The noise was deafening. A few remained quiet, knowing that to shout your opinions at the Patrician did not, ever, actually work. The Patrician's usual way of silencing people didn't work, they didn't want to hear him at all. Then a note so shrill it made even the Patrician flinch, just barely, pierced the air.
Looking at the door, the other Guild leaders looked at Miss Maria Kiln, who suddenly flushed and dropped her gaze. Half of the more honorable gentlemen in the room did so as well, though they listened attentively.
“Y-you guys were all so loud...I couldn't practice out there...b-besides, I heard the Patrician....he asked you all to be quiet...and no one really listened...so, I-I wanted to make you all listen...”
She was shaking now, and Vimes moved with unusual gentleness and carefully guided her out the door. Lord Rust had regained his ability to speak, to the upset of nearly every workingman in the room.
“What a nervou

“Ah, Sir Samuel. And Captain Laurence, yes? Do have a seat, gentlemen, you are the first to arrive...and this is going to be a long meeting, I'm afraid.”
Vimes looked his Patrician over darkly. He looked the same as usual, maybe a bit more tired. His jet black hair was unadorned this afternoon, the usual skullcap most likely left in the Oblong Office. Vimes could see the good stout boots Vetinari preferred to regular shoes, and internally smiled. The goatee was meticulously neat as usual, and the man looked infuriatingly unaffected by this latest disaster.
Vimes sat down on the Patrician's right.
The Patrician opened his eyes again, fixing Vimes with a withering, icy stare. Vimes leaned back, trying to make it look dignified, but the intensity had been a good warning. No broaching of subjects usually raised to him. Right now, they were concerned with only this, to Hell's with anything else.

Commander Vimes put his head in his hands. It had been a long day and now it seemed to be getting even longer. "Run that past me again. There is another big dragon in the city?"
Sergeant Colon shuffled his feet and twirled his helmet in the famous 'Senor, bandits have invaded our village' style. "Um yes sir. It's black with a bit of dark blue on the wings and has tendril things around its face. It's also even bigger than the last one."
"Oh Gods! Has it tried to burn down the city yet?"
"Well, no sir, but it has a captain, which it is very attached to. Very law abiding chap, calmed the beast down
