Dead Man's Ransom - Ellis Peters

This is why Ellis Peters is fun (paraphrasing):


Teenage (ish) boy: I've come to warn you! You're all in danger! You must flee!


Man (inhabitant, probably rolling his eyes or wanting to): We know and we're not going anywhere. We're preparing for the attackers. Here, you can help if you want to be useful.
