    Summary

    They say, then and later, that madness and magic come in the month of Boedromion. The sea cooks and boils. The air singes and curls. In the nights, gods walk the earth beside men. The fair-haired goddess, laughter-loving Aphrodite, comes to her then, sitting in the courtyard, weaving with her hands as her mind flies free.

    "I am ashamed," Fernand whispered. "Someone cut me loose from the net, and I kicked him down on my way to the surface. I did not know who it was, or care, so long as I could breathe again. My uncle went down with his boat and his crew, but I—what sort of man am I?"

    A number of occasions on which Fernand Mondego (later known as the Count of Morcerf) refused to die.
