I have killed a friend for you

Quote Describing My Mood

Still using the Voice, Paul said, "Submit, Captain."

The man at the captain's left leapt without warning and met his captain's knife in his chest. The attacker fell in a heap with the knife still in him.

The captain faced his sole remaining companion. "I decide what is best for His Majesty. Understand?"

The other Sardaukar's shoulders slumped.

The captain returned his attention to Paul. "I have killed a friend for you." he said. "Let us always remember that."

"You're my prisoners," Paul said. "You submitted to me. Whether you live or die is of no importance."

-Dune, Frank Herbert
