I’m going to tell Mrs. Whateley I need to walk to Temple Grafton to get something I forgot. I’ll dress like a lad, take one of the mounts and ride to see the tumbler and that’s that. ” I could tell Will was in a wretched mood. He’d hardly been able to enjoy anything since catastrophe had befallen the Ardens the day the queen arrived at Kenilworth. ” But today, mayhap my crisis distracted Will. We all swore secrecy and friendship forever. Dick pricked a fingertip of each of us so we could mingle blood to seal the vow.
I thought him a bit of a nitpick, but looking back, I wonder if he didn’t mean I was worth something and should be better watched. Freedom was fine with me. I was on the brink of turning hoyden and liked nothing more, when not doing household chores, to dance about to made-up verses or venture on walks away from Henley Street and even out of town. I entertained Will with songs and dances most of the way, despite the fact that the week before Da had caught me skipping and whirling along a grapevine I’d laid out like a rope on the grass.
Despite being offered more money to stay with the Shakespeare-supported carriers, my father had formed his own company and, by underpricing the Greenaways, was off to a sound start. Will and I never broached the subject, but so we wouldn’t be seen together, we now met under Clopton Bridge to take our rare walks. When our companions, Dick and Kat, went out to the country with us for a stolen afternoon, they knew to meet there too. At last the buzz of the crowd changed from murmurs and mutterings to shouts.
