As I turned, with the egg in my hand, I saw Annie move quickly away from beside the shelf where she'd been standing. She was settling her shawl again, tight under her chin. "I'll be off, then," she said, putting the egg in the basket, and without a word of thanks, without even looking at me, she scuttled out of the cottage as if the Devil was after her. *** Something woke me in the middle of the night.

Annie nodded without answering, and I opened the little gate into our yard for her. She was right behind me as I went into the cottage, and turning around I caught a curiously greedy expression on her face. She thinks it'll be all dirty and messy in here, I thought with disgust, and she wants to spread stories about us. I was glad that I'd swept the floor that morning, washed the table, and arranged the dishes neatly on the shelf.

I went to the door and looked out. The night was mild for December, the moon full and shining dully through thin low cloud. There was no rain in the air and enough light to see my way to Tam's old shack. I was going back inside to fetch my shawl when I heard from some way off the heart-lifting, spirit-dancing skirl of the pipes.
