Seeing that Andrea looked troubled, Frederigo told her: "It is no use
Astra just yet. Were we to catch up with her, we might have but a brief
regret our folly before our throats were ripped out. We must wait a few
the moon has waned sufficiently for Astra to return to human form." Astra
made sense, but something did not
feel right. Hadn't he said yesterday that staying at Belboz's overnight
would give Astra
enough of a head start to be safe? In which case, what was the need for
further delay? She considered asking why, of all the other directions they
have taken, they were heading for the Fens, where progress was bound to be
and perhaps even dangerous. However she decided that it might be wiser to
keep silent. She knew that Frederigo was a friend of Astra and yet, whilst
Astra totally, she did not trust him.
She wondered whether she should have secreted some of the sea salt and herbs in her pack. But a warding circle was only effective against evil that was magical or supernatural in nature, which would apply to Belboz but not - she presumed - to Fred, so there had seemed to be no point.
