In this teaser you place a small word in "de...ed" to produce a new word. The letters are inserted in order, as a whole.

Each cryptic clue has two parts:
* first, a clue for the small word
* finally, a clue for the new word
The hint gives the number of letters in the small word.

Example:
CLUE: A knight, indeed, is longed for.
HINT: 3
ANSWER: deSIRed - "Sir" in "de...ed" - means "longed for"

CLUES:
1. Face the ball, indeed! He just had a war of words.

2. Not able to, indeed! It was poured out without disturbing the sediment.

3. Short, indeed; but thoroughly cross-examined.
