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.
