Food will be ready,” she said and crossed herself as she looked at Kelpie. As they all started toward the rowan tree they called home, she added, half under her breath, Herself eats enough, whatever, but will never be doing any cooking.”

Were you wanting it yourself?” she asked reluctantly. I will give it to you, if you like. There’s another nearly as good in yon box,” she added, and this a wee bit heavy for a lass to be wearing.”
