Scarcely able to credit that he could show such favor toward the Church Mouse, Amanda was immediately stirred with a malignant urge to spoil things if she could. So she went to the decanter of sherry..., poured a glass, and took it to Martin, approaching him in such a way that Tansy was forced to release his hand and step aside. Amanda promptly inserted herself neatly in the resulting gap, then turned her back on Tansy as she pressed the glass upon Martin. “I think it most splendid of you to come down like this, Lieutenant, and I for one do not wish you to scurry away again when we go in to dine.”
He summoned a slight laugh. “I do not think I am about to scurry anywhere, Miss Richardson. A painful shuffle is about all I can manage at the moment.”
“Well, however you move from A to B, sir, I must beg you to stay down here with us. I look to you to rescue me again from the horrors of Ancient Egypt, for I vow that so far tonight the conversation here has more resembled the market chatter in Cairo or Alexandria than a country house in England!”
