The Nome King growled a menacing growl and his eyes were red with rage.
"How dare you enter my presence?" he shouted.
"I dare an-y-thing," said Tiktok. "I'm not a-fraid of a fat Nome."
This was true, yet an unwise speech. Had Tiktok's thoughts been in good working order he would have said something else. The angry Nome King quickly caught up his heavy mace and hurled it straight at Tiktok.
Can you rewrite me that red sentence with a basic english or explain me the meaning?
Basically, if Tikot was thinking clearly, he would have replied to the Nome King in a wiser way.
