      He pretends not to understand English but Brother Cadfael, sent to treat his wounds, easily catches him out. The man was mothered with a rich cloth that neither Cadfael nor his fellow Benedictine monks can trace anywhere in the Abbey's grounds. So I mustered what was left of our own, more than ever I expected, and hauled them off far enough to be out of reach while I and one or two with me looked for Gilbert. Civil war continues to rage and in the battle of Lincoln the sheriff of Shropshire is captured and the king is taken prisoner by the enemies. A Welshman looses an arrow at him, but Eliud throws himself in front of Elis and the arrow pins them together, wounding both of them.

      But faith given and allegiance pledged are stronger than fear, thought Cadfael, and that, perhaps, is virtue, even in the teeth of death. Do Androids dream of electric sheep?.

As soon as she had viewed him from head to foot, weary and weather-stained as he was, and found him whole, whatever lesser injuries he might be carrying, she became demure, brisk and calm, and would make no extravagant show of anxiety, though she watched him every moment from behind the fair shield of her wifely face. Hugh sends the six Welshmen who are still at Shrewsbury to carry Elis back to Wales.
