Perrin, who loved children, listened patiently to the shrill little voices and patted the innocent faces.

She left the courtyard unnoticed and hurried to the village and through it and on beyond toward the tree and passed it and galloped some distance beyond, then seeing she was not followed made a quick turn and retraced, But there came from a bend in the road a horseman that rode warily.
