As the rearmost ship was passing the house Anna, her comeliness restored, half rose from her bed, where Miranda stood trying to keep her. From all the far side of the house remotely sounded the smart tramp and shuffle of servants clearing away wreckage, and the din of their makeshift repairs. She was "all right again," she said as she sat, but the abstraction of her eyes and the harkening droop of her head showed that inwardly she still saw and heard the death-struck boy.
The abashed craven turned his hand to Flora, but with a gentle promptness Anna stepped between: "No, Flora dear, see; he hasn't a red scratch on him. Oh, sir, go--eat! If hunger stifles courage, eat! But eat as you ride, and ride like mad back to duty and honor! No! not under this roof--nor in sight of these things--can any man be a ladies' man, who is missing from the front, at the rear."
Oh, go away, said Esmeralda. You know that I know that you only want to steal away and talk to the boys; I heard some of them in the wood a little while ago. Go and stay as long as you like, and she turned her head away and closed her eyes.
She felt neither hope nor fear; she had no distinct consciousness of what had happened.
If it is money they want, said Esmeralda, I would give them what they asked. I am not anxious or afraid about myself, but I know what trouble they will be in at Three Star. Her voice faltered for the first time, and she turned her head aside. Go and tell them what I say.
Youd best lie down, said the woman; and she pointed to a rough bed in the corner.
