In that room was someone whom God
purposed thathe should meet. Then it seemed as if a lightflickered
in their darkness. We have fiveminutes to make a bonfire of it.
They mean to fire this place, andhe doubtless imagines that I will
burn with the rest of it. Sir Turnour burst into a laugh, which
made the spaniel by his sideshiver delicately. He tried toremember
the look of the inn as he had seen it from the road. He hurled his
own weapon at his adversary, and at the same instantducked his head.
Here, in thisplace, an end will be set to your tribulations.
He shepherded the others before
him,and, when the ale came, buried his head in a quart pot. She
sat up, and her hand flew to herhair. Sir Turnour took off his beaver
and surveyed the rosy heavens andthe wide empty landscape. The next
he knew was that his legs were being trussed upwith ropes and his
arms bound to his sides. Had I known sooner he might have helped
me, forI did not dare to turn to any at Hungrygrain. But well have
lost Cranmer, Harry moaned. The remains of foodwere on the table,
and a case bottle of brandy. If there was a seconddoor, it must
be in the wall against which the skins were piled.
She would think him amaniac unless
reassured by his voice. I had rather not be the onewho offended
Sir Turnour Wyse. He stood andlistened outside it, but no sound
came. I am not interested in you, so I will let your past alone.
About as much balance as a hay-wain, Sir Turnour said sourly. We
o the Free Fishers ken each ithers minds, or we wad beas feeble
a folk as the coneys. Damnit, sir, he told him, if you are still
hungry, take a hunch ofbread in your pouch. He tiptoed stealthily
along the bare boardstowards the door. And he pointed tothe door
by which she had entered. His brave words had been folly, and now
shemust tread her bitter road alone.
Here was no madman in the common
sense, but animmense perverted genius. Stumbling over bales of rotting
sheepskins he found his way to awall. Three times he stopped to
rest,and three times returned to the struggle. But as he moved thefigure
behind him rose and plucked his arm. His bondssupported him or he
would have crumpled in a heap. I am not interested in you, so I
will let your past alone. Followme, gentlemen, and mind the step
down! Sir Turnour took off his beaver and surveyed the rosy heavens
andthe wide empty landscape.
