|It was so boring. Even though Sparcus was
a member of the Spartan secret police, so, so boring. Then two years ago I made a friend.
I met this little puppy while we were doing a bit of slave spying ... it belonged to an
Athenian called Alcibiades ... (I think he was important), and we became great friends. He
was called Hermes, always dashing about and flying from here to there.
Now I'm back here in Sparta and I'm missing Hermes who is still in
Athens with his master. It's just not fair. My first real friend. I'm a very sad dog.
