    Summary

    When Thistle was a girl, she'd loved the Fair something fierce.

    Folks came from all round the world to the Scarborough Fair.

    For on Assumption Day, the White Lady, the Queen of Air and Light, would float down to the dry well in the centre of the city of Scarborough and announce that the doors between Heaven and Earth were open for the dead of the world to ascend.

    The Lord under the Mountain, the King of Earth and Darkness would ride out of the moors and into the city with his wild court and announce a time of celebration.

    Everyone in Scarborough knew that the Lord under the Mountain loved the White Lady. Each year he rode into the city and made the thorn bush hang heavy with fruit that the White Lady would decline with a smile.

    Thistle didn't think the Lady and the Lord had much to do with her. She was right and she was wrong.

    Summary

    They celebrate Christmas a month too early. They exchange gifts and joke about mistletoe, sing carols and walk to the church in the dark, lamps lighting their way. Their shoulders brush together as they walk, and their fingers touch as Peter passes him a prayer book, and these little touches should be rationed out through the day. Surely he’ll have reached his allowance soon. Surely this will all end.

    On building fences, candlelight and pretending for a living.
