I Shall Wear Midnight
СWhen I am old, I shall wear midnightЕТ
„удесный роман из новой серии о “иффани. Ќо и старые герои не забыты, в новом романе мы встречаемс€ не только со —тражей, но даже с персонажами из романа ЂEqual Rightsї. —пойлить про сюжет даже в небольших детал€х было бы т€жким грехом Ч хуже, чем убить канарейку или попытатьс€ раскопать холм, где живут Feegles. Ќо думаю, не ошибусь, если скажу Ч всЄ будет хорошо! огда-нибудь.
СHowever, in defence of my new brethren I must point out that they always made certain that the odds were fair and just, which is to say one Feegle to every ten men. Ye cannae say fairer than that. And it wasnae their fault that some men just wanted tae commit suicide.Т
There was a glint in Wee Mad ArthurТs eye that prompted Tiffany to ask, СHow exactly did they commit suicide?Т
The policeman Feegle shrugged his small broad shoulders. СThey took a shovel to a Feegle mound, miss. I am a man who knows the law, miss. I never saw a mound until I met these fine gentlemen, but even so my blood boils, miss, it boils, so it does. My heart it does thump, my pulse it does race, and my gorge it arises like the breath of some dragon at the very thought of a bright steel shovel slicing through the clay of a Feegle mound, cutting and crushing. I would kill the man that does this, miss. I would kill him dead, and chase him through the next life to kill him another time, and I would do it again and again, because it would be the sin oТ sins, to kill an entire people, and one death wouldnae be enough for recompense. However, as I am an aforesaid man of the law, I very much hope that the current misunderstanding can be resolved withoot the need for wholesale carnage and bloodletting and screaming and wailing and weeping and people having bits of themselves nailed to trees, such as has never been seen before, ye ken?Т
