You call the man over to the edge of the field. He seems jovial and very interested in your proposal and agrees to come with you to Egypt to meet Marta. You're very pleased with your decision.
As he gets ready to compete, you realize you don't know what the pancratium is. You ask the man and he explains it is a cross between boxing and wrestling which was debuting at this Olympics. You decide it sounds exciting and will stay and watch.
As the competition begins, you are shocked by what you see. The sport is savage and very dangerous. Before you know what has happened, the man who was supposed to marry your sister was being carried away by the stadium doctors. You chase after them to find out how the man is doing. When you get there, he's already been pronounced dead and is being taken away.
As you leave the stadium, you decide you've had enough and your sister will have to find herself a husband.
