..."We once went in search of a treasure on the mountain where he always trained. Two men asked us for directions. I was about to tell them, but Kleber stopped me just in time. But on the mountain itself we ran into the same men, and a terrible fight ensued. We won. Then Kleber found the treasure."
from The Rider by Tim Krabbe
