'You believe me,' I said gratefully.
'Of course I do,' and he held out his hand. 'I believe everything out of the common. The only
thing to distrust is the normal.'
He was very young, but he was the man for my money.
'I think they're off my track for the moment, but I must lie close for a couple of days. Can you
take me in?'
He caught my elbow in his eagerness and drew me towards the house. 'You can lie as snug
here as if you were in a moss-hole. I'll see that nobody blabs, either. And you'll give me some
more material about your adventures?'
