Willie grins when the chest opens, and he tells Kiplyn: "I chipped my tooth on this chest the first time we found it!"
Then he hears Dame Simonetta's reminder.
"Yes! Mister Frederick said I'm to put 10 of these in here, and that we can keep 2 of them as our reward for carrying the carton here! Who would like to carry them?
"Also, can you all please keep a close eye on the ceiling & the walls while I put these in here? And keep your slings ready..."
Once the Hobbets are arrayed in something resembling a defensive posture, Willie will carefully remove 2 flasks & hand them to whoever would like to carry them.
"Be careful, they are very delicate!"
The rest he'll place in the chest, moving other items to one side if necessary so they can sit on the top.
While he's doing this, he'll take an inventory of the chest's contents.
"I'm sorry, Tet, I don't see any food in here. But this might be wine! Does anybody need anything while I'm in here? Do we have lots of torches?"
