We did not get to the top of Helvellyn . We climbed a little further and Arthur cooled off in the tarn . We really were thinking of the Russians . Hitler was so very strong , and backed up by the Italians could put all the weight of his Panzers against the Soviets . The RAF had the unenviable task of bombing the Nazi munition factories , knowing that they were manned by forced labour from conquered European countries . I was(tense) remembering what my father had told me about other conquering heroes who had tried to attack the great bear . ` He has done for himself now ' I finally said as we came down through Grasmere to get some transport back to our room . We both knew of Napoleon 's retreat . It would surely happen again .

It was n't that I thought myself deserving of more delight than was offered the mass of mankind ( I told myself ) but that the common lot seemed so dire . I would n't let myself think how I had hoped to marry Nour and the happiness I had anticipated . Incredulity at my own stupidity almost made me laugh , for Nour would , without a shadow of a doubt , have many , many wives and not one of them would ever be happy . Lili and my mother were still(t) remembering . They were talking of Mr Monro , who had died , it seems , of whisky and soda many years before : before I was born . They spoke of him as ` Syl 's father ' and I thought that death , like marriage , depersonalised people . Now he was dead he was no longer Jack Monro but only Syl 's father , the dead husband of Mrs Monro , and soon I would be Margaret Monro . Everything was a reflection of death , not only birth but marriage .

He wanted to know what the women 's commune was like that Roberta and Faye frequented . What the connection was between lesbians and the revolutionary formulations of the political women . Alice offered pamphlets and books , which she would procure for him . He nodded , but pressed on : How did women like Faye and Roberta see the relations between men and women after the revolution ? Alice suppressed an impulse to say : Liquidate all men . She was (tense) remembering long and hot arguments with Milly and Helen in Liverpool where she , Alice , had said that their attitude amounted to a contempt for men so total that in effect they suppressed all serious thought about them . What Alice said was , There are many different formulations in the Women 's Movement .

` You are well come , ' he said at last , and the Trees inclined their heads again . ` They 'll like that , ' murmured Oisin to Snizort . ` It 's the ancient welcoming Ritual and , in all of the stories , the Tree Spirits set very great store by rituals .

` It 's O.K. Cassie , ' Ben said , the rather grim look disappearing , to be replaced by one of his lovely smiles . ` As soon as I mentioned walking boots I knew you would n't want to come .

' On a sudden impulse , she reached up to him ( but not as far as she might otherwise have had to do , because of the heels ) and slipped her hands behind his head . He moved to touch her arms and she lightly brushed his lips with hers .

Sometimes Henry wondered whether the junk food industry was going to be able to take the kind of demands Maisie was going to make on it in the years ahead .

Henry could not quite work out why , since her pleasantness was not always followed by a request for money or some other favour ; perhaps she was(tense) remembering something he had quite forgotten , an incident during their courtship perhaps ( they must have had a courtship ) or a Henry , now lost to Henry himself , who could have inspired feelings such as pleasure . Or perhaps this was part of some internal clock of hers and , at some moments , often weeks or months apart , Elinor was programmed to be briefly but definitely pleasant .
