Quandary Resolution 5052
confabulate, mither, irascible, clangor

 

The crowd below clamors for clemency, their clangor wafts up the sheer white walls of the minaret and I, loosed from a dark den below ground, sit before the imam, his luminous caftan almost as bright as my spirits, until, in an irascible voice, he lets me know I will never be leaving: “The crowd is dangerous but easily controlled with a little confabulation--I cannot release you, if you were never here,” and I mither a pathetic plea as I am taken and all again is darkness.
