Dim checks on Balar

Dim had been slow to come to Kespin's defense. Not because he didn't want to help or fight the dragon; his coat had just become heavy with the water, and he felt hindered. So halfway through charging at the dragon, he turned on his heel, quickly walked to a big flat rock near the shore, took off his coat and draped it over the stone. He turned back just in time to see the black bird retreat its beak from Tiella's chest.

"HEY!" he shouted. "NO! BAD BIRD! NO EATING FRIEND DEAD WIFE!" He spurted over in her direction, yelling and shooing. But before he got there, she was getting up! Dim jumped in the air. "WATER WORK!" he yelled. "DWARF GUY FRIEND!" He looked around, and saw Balar prone on the ground. Dim ran over, completely ignoring the bellowing dragon, grabbed Balar's shoulder and shook him violently. "Dwarf guy friend! Water work! Wife okay! Look!"
