Playing with fire

The Ragman goes rigid at the mention of flame. Perspiring and stiff-jawed, he hands you a wooden box. "This should cover the insurance." He poles out to the faster current at the middle of the river and is away.



The Ragman rings a tiny bell. Before you can utter another word, some unseen bruiser has a bag over your head. Next thing you know you're in the water, struggling with the ropes that tie your hands.
