Example text

That is all I remember. When I told my father the memory, years later, he said it could not have been so. Gry and I had been no more than four, and a gift, he said, scarcely ever shows itself till the child is nine or ten years old, "Caddard was three," I said. My mother touched the side of my little finger with the side of her little finger: Do not contradict your father. Canoc was tense and anxious, I was careless and bumptious; she protected him from me and me from him, with the most delicate, imperceptible tact.

Now be still," my mother would say. "I'm learning you, don't you see, so that I can have a girl of my own exactly like you. " "You could have another boy like Orrec," Gry offered, but my mother said, "No! One Orrec is quite enough. " Gry's mother Parn was a strange, restless woman. Her gift was strong, and she seemed half a wild creature herself. She was much in demand to call animals to hunters, and was often away, half across the Uplands, at a hunt at one domain or another.

There had been no raid into the Lowlands for seventy years. The farmers wore stiff, thick leather jackets and bronze caps and carried lance and cudgel and long dagger, in case it came to blood-fighting.
