    Summary

    It's only when the children finally break through the dense crowd that Silver realises three things in rapid succession; they are all girls, none of them are older than ten, and all of them—all of them, including the tiny one trailing in the back with a thumb in her mouth and a one-eyed doll in her hand—are looking straight at Flint.

    "What the—" Silver starts, slanting Flint an incredulous look, "Are they talking to you?"

    “No.”

    There's something about the cadence of his voice that makes Silver laugh, once. Then Flint glances at him out of the corner of his eye.

    “Hang on,” Silver says, drawing close, “Do you know them?"

    Summary

    They are taking them. The thought penetrates Miranda’s mind - cuts through the haze and the panic and the horror that she feels at the sight of James’ limp form being carried out the door, his bare feet dragging, eyes closed, blood still welling from the scrapes he’s received during his short-lived bid for freedom. They are taking Thomas and James away from her.

    Or: Alfred orders both Thomas and James to be taken to Bedlam. Miranda is left to rescue them with the aid of Admiral Hennessey.

    Summary

    Miranda takes the long strands at the front of his head, runs her hand back to the short bristles near the cut. It’s a mess, but there may still be something left worth saving. Rather like them.
