pirates head had disappeared William heard the speculations from a group of idlers on the quay nearby, wondering whether it would be seen again.Na, him be gone for good, said a ragged man of mixed blood, shaking his head De ally gator don take him, de water will.A backwoodsman shifted his tobacco and spat into the water in disagreement No, hes good for another day two, maybe Them gristly bits what holds the head on, they dry out in the sun Tighten up like iron Seen it many a time with deer carcasses.William saw Mrs MacKenzie glance quickly at the harbor, then away She looked pale, he thought, and maneuvered himself slightly so as to block her view of the men and the brown flood of high tide, though since it was high, the corpse tied to its stake was naturally not visible The stake was, though a stark reminder of the price of crime The pirate had been staked to drown on the mudflats several days before, the persistence of his decaying corpse an ongoing topic of public conversation.Jem Mr MacKenzie called sharply, and lunged past William in pursuit of his son The little boy, red haired like his mother, had wandered away to listen to the mens talk, and was now leaning perilously out over the water, clinging to a bollard in an attempt to see the dead pirate.Mr MacKenzie snatched the boy by the collar, pulled him in, and swept him up in his arms, though the boy struggled, craning back toward the swampish harbor.I want to see the wallygator eat the pirate, Daddy The idlers laughed, and even MacKenzie smiled a little, though the smile disappeared when he glanced at his wife He was at her side in an instant, one hand beneath her elbow.I think we must be going, MacKenzie said, shifting his sons weight in order better to support his wife, whose distress was apparent Lieutenant Ransom Lord Ellesmere, I meanhe corrected with an apologetic smile at Williamwill have other engagements, Im sure.This was true William was engaged to meet his father for supper Still, his father had arranged to meet him at the tavern just across the quay there was no risk of missing him William said as much, and urged them to stay, for he was enjoying their company Mrs MacKenzies, particularly but she smiled regretfully, though her color was better, and patted the capped head of the baby in her arms.No, we do have to be going She glanced at her son, still struggling to get down, and William saw her eyes flicker toward the harbor and the stark pole that stood above the flood She resolutely looked away, fixing her eyes upon Williams face instead The babys waking up shell be wanting food It was so lovely to meet you, though I wish we might talk longer She said this with the greatest sincerity, and touched his arm lightly, giving him a pleasant sensation in the pit of the stomach.The idlers were now placing wagers on the reappearance of the drowned pirate, though by the looks of things, none of them had two groats to rub together.Two to one hes still there when the tide goes out.Five to one the bodys still there, but the heads gone I dont care what you say about the gristly bits, Lem, that there head was just a hangin by a thread when this last tide come in Next unll take it, sure.Hoping to drown this conversation out, William embarked on an elaborate farewell, going so far as to kiss Mrs MacKenzies hand with his best court manner and, seized by inspiration, kissed the baby girls hand, too, making them all laugh Mr MacKenzie gave him rather an odd look, but didnt seem offended, and shook his hand in a most republican manner playing out the joke by setting down his son and making the little boy shake hands as well.Have you kilt anybody the boy inquired with interest, looking at Williams dress sword.No, not yet, William replied, smiling.My grandsires kilt two dozen men Jemmy Both parents spoke at once, and the little boys shoulders went up around his ears.Well, he has Im sure he is a bold and bloody man, your grandsire, William assured the little boy gravely The King always has need of such men.My grandda says the King can kiss his arse, the boy replied matter of factly.JEMMY Mr MacKenzie clapped a hand over his outspoken offsprings mouth.You know your grandda didnt say that Mrs MacKenzie said The little boy nodded agreeably, and his father removed the muffling hand.No Grannie did, though.Well, thats somewhat likely, Mr MacKenzie murmured, obviously trying not to laugh But we still dont say things like that to soldiers they work for the King.Oh, said Jemmy, clearly losing interest Is the tide going out now he asked hopefully, craning his neck toward the harbor once .No, Mr MacKenzie said firmly Not for hours Youll be in bed.Mrs MacKenzie smiled at William in apology, her cheeks charmingly flushed with embarrassment, and the family took its leave with some haste, leaving William struggling between laughter and dismay.Oy, Ransom He turned at his name, to find Harry Dobson and Colin Osborn, two second lieutenants from his regiment, evidently escaped from duty and eager to sample the fleshpots of Wilmington such as they were.Whos that Dobson looked after the departing group, interested.A Mr and Mrs MacKenzie Friends of my fathers.Oh, married, is she Dobson sucked in his cheeks, still watching the woman Well, make it a bit harder, I suppose, but whats life without a challenge Challenge William gave his diminutive friend a jaundiced look Her husbands roughly three times your size, if you hadnt noticed.Osborn laughed, going red in the face.Shes twice his size Shed crush you, Dobby.And what makes you think I mean to be on the bottom Dobson inquired with dignity Osborn hooted.Whats this obsession of yours with giantesses William demanded He glanced at the little family, now nearly out of sight at the end of the street That womans nearly as tall as I am Oh, rub it in, why dont you Osborn, who was taller than Dobsons five feet, but still a head shorter than William, aimed a mock kick at his knee William dodged it and cuffed Osborn, who ducked and shoved him into Dobson.Gennelmen The menacing cockney tones of Sergeant Cutter brought them up sharp They might outrank the sergeant, but not one of them would have the nerve to point this out The entire battalion went in fear of Sergeant Cutter, who was older than God and approximately Dobsons height, but who contained within his diminutive physique the sheer fury of a full sized volcano on the boil.Sergeant Lieutenant William Ransom, Earl of Ellesmere and senior of the group, drew himself up straight, chin pressed back into his stock Osborn and Dobson hastily followed his lead, quaking in their boots.Cutter strode back and forth in front of them, in the manner of a stalking leopard You could just see the lashing tail and the preliminary licking of chops, William thought Waiting for the bite was almost worse than getting it in the arse.And wheres your troops, then Cutter snarled Sirs Osborn and Dobson at once began sputtering explanations, but Lieutenant Ransom for once walked on the side of the angels.My men are guarding the Governors Palace, under Lieutenant Colson Im given leave, Sergeant, to dine with my father, he said respectfully By Sir Peter.Sir Peter Packers was a name to conjure with, and Cutter abated in mid spew Rather to Williams surprise, though, it wasnt Sir Peters name that had produced this reaction.Your father Cutter said, squinting Thats Lord John Grey, is it Er yes, William replied cautiously Do you know him Before Cutter could reply, the door of a nearby tavern opened, and Williams father came out William smiled in delight at this timely appearance, but quickly erased the smile as the sergeants gimlet gaze fixed on him.Dont you be a grinnin at me like an airy ape, the sergeant began, in dangerous tones, but was interrupted by Lord Johns clapping him familiarly on the shoulder something none of the three young lieutenants would have done if offered significant money.Cutter Lord John said, smiling warmly I heard those dulcet tones and said to myself, why damn me if it isnt Sergeant Aloysius Cutter There cant be another man alive who sounds so much like a bulldog thats swallowed a cat and lived to tell about it Aloysius Dobson mouthed at William, but William merely grunted briefly in response, unable tPraise for Diana Gabaldon
