wena sat up on guard and snapped at the nasty poisonous flies, which came to annoy her master.
Then all was blackest night again; and even wena was swallowed up in it.
Then another great flash lit up all the hollow; and wena was frightened and dropped her tail, but still held on to her master.
wena was a very nice creature, anxious to please, and elegant; but of a different order entirely from the high–minded Caldo.
They stood and looked at him prettily, without either fear or defiance, and wena wanted to hunt them.
Then wena capered about, and barked, and came and licked his shoe, and offered to carry the coat for him.
Whereupon Cradock, laughing heartily, drew his barge ashore, and soon wena and himself were deep in a discussion ichthyological.
wena found several rabbits, all of a sandy colour, and she did enjoy most wonderfully her little chivies after them.
Very likely they were cannibals, and would roast him slowly, to brown him nicely, and then serve up wena for garnish.
That was the question Cradock asked, both of himself and wena, twenty times a day.
