It is Mullach and Lionan -- our own lords ! They lead the attackers . ` How many are they ? ' Dunan asked sharply . The Hearthware gulped for breath . ` Luib tried to count . At least a score of ` Wares , and half a dozen Myrcans ; maybe a hundred others , unarmoured like our trainees . Some of them are Suardale men -- and Drynoch men ! ' Dunan cursed softly . ` All right , Fimir ; that was well done . Get your breath back . You 'll be needing it soon(d) . ' Fimir nodded and tottered away . ` We have a fight on our hands , ' Dunan said . He sucked his teeth . ` Our own Dales . And Myrcan fighting Myrcan . I 'd like to know how the fox persuaded them to that . ' ` Why would your people fight each other ? ' Riven asked Isay . ` I know not . But they will have had a good reason . ' Doubt clouded his face , and he was troubled .

And once that was done , you 've stepped out bravely . Never be afraid to step out , if it harms no other and gets you your heart 's desire . Now then , ' he swung round and contemplated the pig styes behind them . ` You 'll be needing more space in there when she has her litter (a), or she 'll lie on them and crush the lot . ' Between Iskandara and Alexandra that fortnight , there reigned an uneasy truce . It could not be said that a peace had been finally made because old habits in Alexandra would not die a final death and made her still reserved , a little wary .

Merrill 's forebodings about working for Luke were fulfilled during the first morning . ` My previous assistant was very methodical , ' he remarked , with the ghost of a lifted eyebrow as if to query Merrill 's understanding of his subtlety . As she nodded he went on , ` Alison was a great one for desk diaries and pending files . You 'll have no trouble in finding details of my engagements and future movements , including the papers I 'll be needing for a trip to Bruges next month (a). Of course , you 'll keep my desk diary strictly up-to-the-minute . And you 'll note that I prefer the somewhat old-fashioned personal touch to high-tech methods . After all , we 're an old established company . ' Merrill smiled . ` Perhaps you 'd like me to develop a copperplate style of handwriting ? ' she murmured , then could have bitten off her tongue . What a puerile thing to say !

And you can bring along the schedules we 'll need while we 're there . I 'm confident I can leave everything in your capable hands … ' Merrill could see that he was totally engrossed in his forthcoming meeting with Mr Charlton ; one of the things she admired about him was his utter single-mindedness . But a moment later he called from his office , ` I wo n't be needing you all the time(d) in Bruges , so pack some comfortable shoes ; you 'll be free to explore a little on your own . ' He glanced up to where Merrill had come to stand in the doorway , an amused smile flickering across his sensual mouth , his eyes slightly mocking . ` As an artist , you 'll enjoy the many museums , I 'm sure . You can even see a Michelangelo sculpture . I shall look forward to hearing your considered opinion of such treasures . '

Eight-thirty , he 'd said , and it was already a few minutes past that ! No doubt he was waiting for her in the foyer , champing at her non-appearance . When she went down she was surprised to see that Luke was still in the dining-room , finishing his breakfast . He frowned as she approached . ` I was just about to leave , ' he said brusquely . ` I wo n't be needing you this morning (a) after all . ' ` Oh ? ' Was this his way of cutting her down to size ? Merrill wondered . A reprisal for her unwillingness to co-operate last night ? She sat down and poured a glass of orange juice . ` I 've had a message from one of the members of the consortium that he 's providing a multi-lingual stenographer . He telephoned me first thing . ' Merrill nodded . ` I see . ' ` Did you sleep well ? ' he asked politely .

Shrugging , she walked slowly down the ladder . Accept ? Of course not . How could she have ? He 'd called her Jenny , had n't he , and no one did that . She blinked as she stepped back into the office , closing her eyes against the sudden change of light . Jock looked up briefly , then motioned for her to hurry . ` Come on now , lassie . There 's a rush-immediate to be seen to . K-tables we 'll be (tense) needing . You call , I 'll subtract . Chop chop ! ' The war had started again , but would n't it be wonderful , Jane thought , if during those brief moments of stillness , no one had been wounded or blinded or burned . And no aircrews reported missing . The launch headed for Ardneavie jetty and Lucinda sighed contentment .

Despite chest trouble and the serious illness of his mother , he was , as the letter provided a small piece of evidence , much happier about his own work . The Family Reunion , which we went to see and much enjoyed , had that autumn been put on again , and its success greatly heartened him . We had also been in touch with him indirectly through learning early in the year that he and John Hayward were(tense) needing a housekeeper . Through family connections , Margaret knew a handsome Greek lady , who seemed suitable . She had not merely been a housekeeper but her qualities of efficiency , cheerfulness and gastronomic expertise seemed to fit her for the task of looking after this unusual pair . I was several times on the phone to John Hayward , who supervised such domestic matters , and I was struck by his almost fierce , perhaps too possessive , loyalty to Eliot .

So even without intending to the nurse could not help but give out signals Chesarynth could read : the heavier exhalation , the pale tightness round the lips . Hastily ( so she did n't annoy the nurse more and drive the box of infinity quickly out of reach ) , Chesarynth stuttered , ` Will I -- will you be sending the black machine with me ? ' The nurse raised her eyebrows in adult surprise at such a childish worry . ` Of course not . We 'll be (tense) needing it here . Now hurry up , will you ? We 've got a lot to do if you 're going to make the shuttle . ' The royal ` we ' of the medical profession . Chesarynth did n't miss the impersonal attentions of the technician and the nurse , but the magic box stayed firmly where it was in the suite in the house on the ` dark ' side of the moon .
