Diana had wounded him! By accident, of course. Her dog had jostled her arm, and her arrow had gone astray; but, nonetheless, the Eighth Viscount Alma's injury was such that he had to remain with the Saviles for two weeks' recuperation. Diana Savile felt obliged to keep him amused as best she could. Alma was uncomfortable and inclined to be irritable, but he soon grew to think of Diana as a good companion, rather like a younger brother, to fish and walk with. Until one day when he was well enough to join her in a little fencing and found that he too could inflict wounds inadvertently - and that the cry "en garde" was not enough to protect an innocent heart.
