Her glance leapt to his face. "By love and thunder," she said in the Iceni, then switched to Latin. "The Eiremen showed themselves none too sweet with us last night, I am remembering. They were cuddling up to put iron in our flesh, I'm remembering. Are you not remembering? Or are you finding iron a bit too coarse?" She flung her smile aside and looked up unwaveringly into his tattooed face.
