"A big horse?  Yes.  Big and heavy on my legs.  Paol moved it.  I think it must have hit me in the head, because I had fallen down and sort of fell asleep.  And I woke up blind and under a horse.  And deaf.  I couldn't hear.  What?  What?"  He closed his eyes again and cupped his hand to his ear.  "Paol, where are you?"  His finger men resumed their play on the table, one walking after the other.  "Paol, hello? Yes, I'm right here.  Paol, where are you?  I said I'm right here."

Martita giggled, snatching up the wooden mouse -- or rat -- and creeping it towards the two hand-soldiers. Mouse paused, sniffing. "I smell French soldiers..."

"What?" Charcot said, closing his eyes and cupping his hand to his ear again. "What? What? Who is there?" He leaned his head toward the toy rat and sniffed.

"Rhaa! I am going to eat you," the rat announced and with something that resembled muffled laughter more than a ferocious growl, charged the two soldiers.

Maria stopped at the foot of the stairs. Martita was squealing with laughter as she and the young soldier played with her wooden animals. Catching sight of her sister, she dropped the rat and ran over to her. "Maria! Guess what happened to Domingo! A horse fell on him! That's why he became blind."

Charcot looked up with surprise as the girl left the table, but then he saw why: her beautiful older sister was in the door.  He blushed slightly to have been caught playing with toys, but he grinned at her anyway.  He could tell that the little one was talking about him.    Siégaut, that seemed to be what they kept calling him.

Maria barely heard her. "Go play with your toys, Martita," she replied automatically and beckoned for the Frenchman to follow her.

"But we were playing!" Martita protested, "Where are you going? I want to come. I want to play too!"

"The tall one is raving," Maria explained quickly to Doña Castillo and then, because it was faster than trying to explain, she grabbed the soldier's hand and pulled him up the stairs, followed by cries of childish outrage from below.

Charcot was bewildered at first, though certainly gratified that she was holding his hand. He willingly followed her, and then he realized what the cause must be.

"Paol?" he asked the girl. Idiot! He should have stayed with Paol, not gone wandering off to play silly games with Spanish girls. He was ashamed of himself for even flirting with this girl, as pretty as she was. He should have been thinking of nothing but Paol.

"Yes," Maria said simply. They had reached the top of the stairs and she pulled him inside. She had no intention of letting him cry his way out of this.

Something was wrong. Paol's gaze darted around the room then returned to stare wide-eyed at Manuela. It was only the two of them, and she was holding his hand, but something was wrong. Something terrible was going to happen.

"You have to go," he tried to tell her, "Please, go. To--to...Please. It's not--"

And then something did happen. Someone else was there. A French voice, voices. French soldiers.

"No. No, stay away! French--French wounded. Here. We--we have..." His breath was coming in gasps. "We have the fever. Stay away!"

Charcot started to move closer, but he stopped, seeing the fear in his friend's eyes. "I know, Paol. It's all right. You have fever, but only because of your arm. You'll be better in a day or two." He exchanged a worried glance with Manuela. "It's me, Charcot. Dominic. And Manuela. Do you want some water?"

Manuela recognized that word. "L'eau? Do you want some water, some l'eau?"

Water? He stared between the two of them, confusion and fear mounting as reality and delusion clashed dizzyingly together. "No," he shook his head, stumbling drunkenly over the words, "No. No water. Nothing--nothing here. Wounded. Just wounded. French wounded."

"What's a Raving?" It was a new voice, small and bright, and though the face it belonged to was lost in the heaving blur of the room, he recognized the sound. Martita, but what.... And then a woman's voice, not Manuela's, rose after her. It must have been her sister, but then...where was he?

The memory of that night in the carpenter's house, after the fight with Thibaudeau, flickered bright for a moment and then dimmed. And then the horrible thought occurred to him that he'd never left. He was already half sitting and suddenly he was fighting to push himself up straight, struggling with the blankets which entrapped his legs and seemed almost to be weighted with lead. He had to get back. He had to tell Charcot. The French weren't coming. Or...they were coming? He suddenly could not seem to remember which it was, but he's promised Manuela he'd protect her and he had to get back. How long had he been gone? Charcot wouldn't have known where he was, what if he'd--But that thought was too terrible to finish. He had to get back.

"No no no, Paol. Stay in bed." Charcot tried to push him back against the mattress as gently as he could, but even weakend by fever and one arm useless, Kerjean was strong. And he was obviously driven by fear of some sort. "What's the matter? There's nothing for you to worry about. Just lie back and try to sleep."

Hands seized him suddenly, thrusting him back, down, and the savage, raucous voices, the snarling, laughing, thundering din of the day before filled his ears again. "Gerroff! No!" He tried to fight back, grabbing a fistful of the other man's shirt and pulling himself up that way, but it was no use. The mad, ersatz strength of delirium soon spent itself and he collapsed back onto the bed. "Leave 'em alone! You can't--No! Leave them alone!" His hand dropped from Charcot's shirt and he tried once more, ineffectually to push himself up.

"All right, all right! I'll leave them alone. All right?" Charcot stepped back slightly, raising his hands to show Paol that he meant no harm to whatever it was he was concerned about.

"Hush, hush, hush, hush," Manuela whispered. She had already poured a cup of water and she reached forward to help him drink from it. She glanced over her shoulder. "Martita, you should go downstairs with Tia Carla."

"But why is Paolo fighting with Domingo?" Martita wanted to know.

"Hush," Maria, whose attempts to shepherd her sister out of the room had been forestalled by the sudden violence of the soldier's outburst, tried to quiet Martita. "He's having a nightmare, that's all."

"Why can't you wake him up?"

"Sometimes when people are very sick, they have nightmares when they are awake."

To Martita this sounded like a truly terrible affliction. When she had nightmares, Maria Dolores would wake her up and would hold her and sing to her until she fell back to sleep. "Maybe you should sing to him," she suggested.

Maria felt herself blush. "Singing is for little girls, not big soldiers," she retorted matter-of-factly, herding her sister towards the door. Though in truth, with the violence of his delirium having spent itself, the man in the bed seemed little more than a frightened boy.

The press and roar of the struggle was slipping away, fading into the sound of a soft voice beside him and the feel of something hard and cool against his lips. Water splashed into his mouth and he was aware of a terrible thirst. He gulped at the water, drinking too quickly so that he began to cough, letting his head drop back as the spasms subsided.

It was cold, he realized, ice cold in the room and he was shivering. "Manuela?" he murmured, blinking as he tried to focus on the figure close beside him. And then, catching sight of the hazy, but unmistakeable form just behind her, "Charcot?"

"Yeah, I'm here." He drew closer again and sat on the edge of the bed. "You had a bad dream. You all right now?"

Manuela wordlessly refilled the cup and offered it to him.

The dreams had drawn off a ways, but the cold, heavy sense of failure and of fear remained behind like a deep footprint. But the cup was pressed to his mouth and he did not have space to think again until he had drained it. Just a dream, Charcot had said. But he couldn't make himself believe it. What if it wasn't just a dream, what if it was a memory? It had felt real enough. But if it was a memory, if it had really happened, surely Manuela wouldn't be there. Or Charcot.

If indeed they were there. The thought caught him by surprise, sharp and painful like a thrust below the breastbone, and he looked between them anxiously as if more than half expecting them to fade into something else, or into nothing.

They seemed quite solid. But then so had Decoste's fists and the shoving, struggling bodies of the men trying to get into the house. And he'd lost Charcot. When the French came. But that must have been a dream as well, because the French weren't coming. Were they? And if that was a dream, then he's as good as lost him again. They'd never made it to the hospital. He couldn't help him, he couldn't help Manuela. He couldn't even tell if there was anyone left to help.

An aching tightness gripped his throat and his eyes stung. "I'm sorry. It weren't supposed to happen like this. I – I thought – I kept – kept... I'm sorry."

"That's all right. It's turned out all right now, and you'll be feeling better soon."

Manuela reached out to hold his hand and found it to be cold and clammy. "He's cold," she told Charcot. "He needs to be warm. Give him those blankets, and I'll go and get him some hot broth, hot soup, downstairs."

Charcot understood some of her command, and he unfolded a blanket and laid it over his friend. "It's all right. Everything's going to be fine soon," he said quietly. "You're cold? What we need is a big dog to lie next to you. Remember that one that Foucheaux saved? And it repaid him by eating his bag?"

A weak, unexpected laugh escaped him at the memory and suddenly he felt like bursting into tears. He swallowed hard, blinking them back and curled his hand unconsciously around the folds of the blanket. The shared memory was reassuring somehow, however illogically. Thanks, he started to say, then stopped. Charcot was looking at him, really looking at him like he hadn't done since... since before the battle. And the blanket...Had Manuela brought it? No, that had been Charcot as well.

"You can see?" he asked, faint and disbelieving.
