  • "'Is it gone?' ...

    'I dinna ken if it was ever there, Sassenach,' he said. 'I thought I felt eyes upon me, but it could have been a passing wolf, an owl—or nay more than a restless spiorad, a-roaming in the wood. But aye, it's gone now.'"
    —Diana Gabaldon, The Fiery Cross (NY: Bantam Dell, 2001), 391
