Florian, on top of that, seemed to have the odd power of drawing him out. Though he kept enough caution to say nothing of Dorning, Theo hardly stopped talking long enough to catch his breath. He gladly unburdened himself, having spoken no more than a dozen words in a dozen days. He detailed his journey with Las Bombas and tried to explain that he had left Mickle for her own good. He finally realized he had been babbling and let his account trail off. "He loved her," sighed Rina. "It was noble of him.
Yes, well--- in fact, I do," Theo declared. Having made this claim, he wondered how to justify it. He paused, hastily seeking an idea, then went on. " "They proved reluctant," the count admitted. " "Now you can. Put those arms and legs together with the phrenological head. Dress the girl in a black robe and hood, at a table with one candle in front of her.

We're happy, laughing, playing hide-and-seek the way we used to do. Then it's my turn to hide and they can't find me. They're calling for me but when I answer they can't hear me. They're very sad and so am I. " She was trembling. After a moment, she pulled away and without another word went to her room. Theo stood, about to follow.
