Lugh splashed to her. He lifted her out of the coracle, this great, powerful boy; he carried her in his arms and set her ragged-slippered feet on the bank and steadied her, his muscled arm tight about her waist. This surprised me, but I forgot it as Merlin apÂ�peared beside us, the Lady at his elbow. They had horses waiting in the forest shadows. ) They had a sack of clothing, light armor for Lugh, a gown and cloak for Gwen. Merlin would go as he was, and Lugh’s deaf servant needed no finery.

I could not tell whether he saw me. Human eyes are weak in the dark, and many oldsters cannot see well even by daylight. He gathered himself to rise, and looked up into my face. A long moment he sat, eyes meeting mine. Then he folded his hands, bowed his head, and watched me from under lowered brows. He saw me. He saw me, but he would do nothing.

All the way down we stumbled on couples helping the God and GodÂ�dess unite, too eager even to seek cover. Now, placing my last reed thatch I thought Elana should have tumbled Lugh that night. She had had other chances since then: 54 Merlin’s Harp Flowering Moons, “accidenÂ�tal” meetings; she could have enticed Lugh at the villa, or in any thicket, for that matter.
