'Sunday, sir.'

'Sweet Jesus.' Harper stood up, 'Are you all right, sir?'

'Just a bruise.' Lossow saw the midshipman's head. 'Good God.' He knelt by Charles, felt for a pulse, and opened one of the Captain's eyelids. 'Dead, poor fellow.'

Sharpe felt ashamed. This was Harper's religion. 'I'm sorry.'

Sharpe felt ashamed. This was Harper's religion. 'I'm sorry.'

'Is that Mass?'

'Sunday, sir.'

'Just a bruise.' Lossow saw the midshipman's head. 'Good God.' He knelt by Charles, felt for a pulse, and opened one of the Captain's eyelids. 'Dead, poor fellow.'

'Yes.' Sharpe's shoulder hurt like the devil. 'Where's the boy?'

'Just a bruise.' Lossow saw the midshipman's head. 'Good God.' He knelt by Charles, felt for a pulse, and opened one of the Captain's eyelids. 'Dead, poor fellow.'

'You don't sound hopeful, my friend?'

'Amen to that, sir.' Harper had infinitely more patience.

'Sweet Jesus.' Harper stood up, 'Are you all right, sir?'

'Is that Mass?'

Sharpe felt ashamed. This was Harper's religion. 'I'm sorry.'

'What day is it?'

Harper looked over the ramparts, at the drifting smoke. 'Just four shots. That's good shooting.' There was a reluctant respect in his voice.

The Sergeant pointed to the head. 'Rest of him's over the wall, sir. Poor wee thing.'

'Ja. Not easy, my friend.'

'It'll wait.'

'Sunday, sir.'

'Ja. Not easy, my friend.'

'Sunday, sir.'

The Irishman grinned. 'Wouldn't worry, sir. It doesn't offend me and if it offends Him then He's plenty of opportunity to punish you.'

Light, like carved silver, slashed the cathedral's gloom, slanted across the crouching grey pillars, splintered o(T brass and paint, drowned the votive candles that burned before the statues, inched its way over the broad, worn flagstones as the sun moved higher, and Sharpe waited. A priest, lost in the depths of the choir, mumbled beyond the window light, and Sharpe saw Harper cross himself.
