“Dinner Guests” Knowing Fip’s accuracy, it is only natural to be concerned that there will be nothing to eat. Hob does not look too surprised when Zip reports that Fip had not returned yet. The surprise comes when the emerald archer arrives with food for the table. The bigger surprise is that guests have unexpectedly arrived as well. Even a pleasant confirmation of Fip’s ability to provide does not distract Zip from being alert. These two look like rough customers. But even though the reflexes are there, memories are often fogged by the hope for food. What small amount of jury-rigging Zip was able to do to the damaged crossbow has come undone at the worst moment.
