Subject: QOTD for Friday, November 10, 2023

The following quotation is from Go Tell The Bees That I Am Gone by Diana Gabaldon. Copyright 2022 All Rights Reserved. Chapter 110 . . . Confused Noise And Garments Rolled In Blood . . .

I was at the door with no memory of getting there, fumbling with the mortise bolt - I hadn’t barred the door when Elspeth came. I yanked the heavy door as though it weighed nothing, and in the dark and flickering candlelight I saw Jamie, among a many-headed mass of black confusion, a head taller than his companions and his eyes searching for me.

“Help me, Sassenach,” he said, and stumbled into the hall, lurching to one side and striking the wall. He didn’t fall, but I saw the blood on his wet shirt, soaked and spreading.

“Where?” I said urgently, seizing his arm and looking for the source of the blood. It was running down his arm beneath the sleeve of his jacket; his hand was wet with it. “Where are you hurt?”

“Not me,” he said, chest heaving with the effort to breathe. He jerked his head backward. “Him.”

[> [> He's bloody, too - a cutlass slash across his chest. Again. This is Captain Cunningham who's in trouble now. -- kgp, Sat, November 11 2023, 11:04:59
