Adesso nell'ora santificata la parola del potere è pronunciata; e la notte è spezzata... Gawen s'irrigidì, sforzandosi di sentire le parole, poi un sus-sulto sfuggito a qualcuno lo indusse a guardare verso l'alto: sul-la sommità del Tor era fiorita una luce, una sommessa e tremo-lante lingua di fiamma che in un momento venne seguita da un'altra e poi da una terza. Le fanciulle mormorarono fra loro con meraviglia, indicando quel chiarore, ma Gawen rimase in-vece in attesa del verso successivo del canto.

Poi Caillean tornò a fissarlo e lui si tro-vò ad alzarsi in piedi, come se lo sguardo di lei avesse contenuto una sfida. «Io rimarrò qui», disse. «E lo farò anch'io», aggiunse una voce, accanto a lui. Sussultando per la sorpresa, Gawen si girò e trovò accanto a sé Sianna, che aveva ereditato il talento di sua madre nel muo-versi silenziosamente. Mentre tutt'intorno anche le altre pro-mettevano a loro volta di restare, parlando già dei lavori di rico-struzione, Gawen si protese e strinse la mano di Sianna nella propria.

Una cerva stava avanzando con passo misurato ed elegante sull'erba, bilanciandosi con grazia su zoccoli che sembravano quasi troppo piccoli per reggere il suo peso, e qualche passo più indietro procedeva un cerbiatto già abbastanza cresciuto, le cui macchie infantili cominciavano a scomparire nel pelo invernale sempre più folto.
