I planted my feet on the worn cobblestones. “Let me go!”
“Shut up.” Mr. Vance dragged me forward.
“Help!” I turned my head to look at the dyer’s apprentice. His ginger hair was cropped almost to fuzz and
sweat had soaked through his shirt.
Mr. Vance smiled at the dyer’s apprentice, or maybe it was a snarl. “Hallo, Gus.”
“Help me—”

“I said shut up.” Mr. Vance’s grip tightened on my shoulder until I gasped. His thumb was inside my
collar, and I could feel the sandpaper roughness of his skin. “She’s a bit excited. Lucky I found her, or
Bel knows what she might have got into. Dangerous for a kid to be about on her own, am I right?”
“Righty-ho, sir.”
“Righty-ho.” Mr. Vance grinned again. “Oh, and tell your master I said hallo. Tell‘m I owe him a pint.”
Gus hefted the handles on his cart and continued down the street. He looked paler than he had looked
before, and he kept his eyes fixed on the cobblestones ahead of him. The cartwheels clattered as he
passed us by.
Mr. Vance grabbed my other shoulder and shook me. Then he hustled me forward, continuing down the
street. He leaned to talk in my ear, and I could feel the heat of his breath. “Who put you up to it? You
know I can make you tell me.”
I stamped on Mr. Vance’s foot as hard as I could.
