Example text

Perfectly still, moving no muscle, I studied the face. 55 Anne Eliot Crompton My spirit must have known all this time that I was not alone; but I, Niviene, had been too busy with thoughts and feelings to hear her whispered warning. A young girl, maybe ten years old, watched me round-eyed. She cocked her head like a fox-cub and licked thin, hungry lips. And now I could smell her: hair and skin none too clean, recently ate meat. I said softly, “Come down here. ” The face in the fire widened startled eyes and disÂ�appeared.

Then a young fellow trailing flowery ribbons mis�judged his leap and the ribbons flared. He pranced on unknowing, but dancers and bystanders ran to catch him, roll him on the ground and tear away the burning ribbons. After this the excitement ebbed. The flame flick�ered more gently around the circle, and I sank down again into my body. Again I felt the calloused, sweat�ing hands holding mine, and smelled bitter Human breath. As the night faded the circle drifted apart. Lugh and Elana came and drew me away, and we three slipped quietly downhill.

This surprised me, but I forgot it as Merlin apÂ�peared beside us, the Lady at his elbow. They had horses waiting in the forest shadows. ) They had a sack of clothing, light armor for Lugh, a gown and cloak for Gwen. Merlin would go as he was, and Lugh’s deaf servant needed no finery. The Lady gave the rolled-up gown and cloak to Gwen, who cradled them as she might cradle a baby. “Dress yourself,” the Lady told her. Gwen stood, swaying, hugging the bundle. ” The Lady rose tiptoe to peer up into Gwen’s eyes.
