Crispin: Cross of Lead Chapter 58

By Avi

Chapter 58

  • Sure enough, when they reach the city gates, Aycliffe breaks his word, declaring to everyone that Crispin and Bear are traitors, etc. Frankly, we'd expect nothing less of him at this point.
  • Bear and Aycliffe get into a sword/dagger fight, and Aycliffe, in true villain fashion, ends up impaled by the swords of his own soldiers. Ha.
  • True to his word, Crispin lays the cross of lead on the dying steward's chest, then runs to catch up with Bear, who is already heading out of the city.
  • Bear and Crispin sing as they leave.
  • Crispin decides to keep the name Crispin. We don't blame him—it's that or "Asta's son," which doesn't have quite the same ring to it.
