The Elf gets off his horse, ties it up and says to the boy, "A credit if you
watch my horse."  To Kyle the Elf says simply but courteously "Hello." and
then walks into the shop carrying the crate.  Kyle can see even more clearly
that this Elf is in possession of some substantial physical training, his
body moving like a finely-tuned weapon.

[Meanwhile inside the shop...]

Bongo eagerly takes the bills, and then, with the greatest care, folds them
up in places them in a small folder in his pocket.  "Star Wars." Bongo says,
"Great movie.

Lena playfully slaps Arden's arm.  "Be nice." she says as she follows him
out the door.

Just as Arden is about to open the door, it swings open revealing another
Elf!  This Elf is just an inch shorter than Arden, with blonde hair,
handsome face and a powerful build.

"Ooh!" Lena laughs.  "Two Elves in the same town!  Are you related?"
