The following quote is taken from Dragonfly In Amber by Diana Gabaldon, Chapter 11 "Useful Occupations". Copyright (c) 1992 by Diana Gabaldon. All rights reserved.

   " "My hair came loose, midway through," he said. "The thong holding it
broke, and the wind was blowing it into my eyes, so all I could see was the wee
white shape of Charles in his shirt, darting to and fro like a minnow. And that's
how I got him, finally--the way ye spear a fish with a dirk." he snorted
through his nose.
   "He let out a skelloch as though I'd run him through, though I knew I'd
but pinked him in one arm. I got the hair out of my face at last and looked
beyond him to see Annalise standing there at the edge of the clearing, wi' her
eyes wide and dark as yon pool." He gestured out over the silver-black surface
beside us.
   "So I sheathed my blade and smoothed back my hair, and stood there--
half-expectin' her to come and throw herself into my arms, I suppose." "
