Deal 813: That happened.

The commotion at the back of the room attracted some attention, then died down.

The ceremony continued. Ponderous words were spoken. Vows were made. Duties were established.

A muttering started in the middle of the crowd, and spread. Spread like wildfire in a dry prairie, in fact.

The ceremony came to a grinding halt mid sentence.

As one, the audience stood up and threw off their blinders, their funny hats, their embroidered robes.

As one, the audience stood and faced down the establishment.

A rumble from the front hinted that they weren’t going to go away that quietly.

The audience turned, and left the building.
