Outside of prex himself, there wasn't a better-known figure in my time.
And worse than all, inviting prex into his room to have a cigar and a glass of Madeira!
The prex hired me to wait on him and keep his traps in order sometimes—when the other old ‘Boys’ would let him be ‘coddled.’
Look, prex, I know this is a big favor to ask, but it's on the level.
Never hooked a ham out of his smoke-house, either, I'll wager, and for the same reason— prex hasn't a smoke-house.
In a moment he heard a receiver click off, and a familiar voice said, "prex speaking."
Mariel's eyes shifted momentarily to prex's stoney face, then back to Shandor, ghosts of fear creeping across his face.
prex carefully took a small black case from his pocket, unsnapped a hinge, and a small, shiny instrument fell out in his hand.
prex pressed a stud on the side of the shiny instrument, and a purple flash caught Mariel's little finger.
