Hugo was long gone – out hunting with Stephen. Most of the soldiers were fed at their posts by the early night. Alys sat at the lord's side and ate the best bread with him and drank a small cup of hot water with a sprinkling of chamomile on the top.

The lord gave a snort of amusement. 'Calmness is for the grave' he said. 'I'd rather have panic any day. Tells me I am still alive.'
