nial stared; then, descrying nothing, leaped into the hollow.
nial of the Nine Hostages and Dathi are the last pagan monarchs who demand special notice.
nial made a sign of silence, so she came forward soundlessly.
Ever since that day by the cairn nial had kept out of his way.
Nothing of what Murdo or nial had seen came to his ears—of that she was heedful.
At last, to his satisfaction, he heard the peculiar cry which nial was wont to give as a signal.
Not a word had he said hitherto to nial as to the taking of the corpse to Ardoch-beag.
nial stood listening intently, now to this sound, now to that.
Then in his heart of hearts nial knew that he had not the courage to say what he had to say.
