5. LAWS FAMILY REGISTER Apr 30 Number 591




Welcome to the Laws Family Register. 

================================================================

Little Silver Bells

By me

Part 5


Laura said, "Keep your voice down, Emma is almost asleep, don't awaken her.  You and that over-active imagination again, take off those boots, come over by the fire you look frozen,”  

The next morning after a breakfast of eggs and several rashers of bacon, and a mug of steaming tea, Robert felt ready for anything. He helped Laura to clear away, and then he pulled on his gumboots and took up the dog's lead.

Laura said." Don't be long now, no day dreaming; Remember we've got to go shopping.

"OK" Robert called back, he slipped on his jacket, stuffing binoculars and map in one pocket, and camera in the other, when he was fully loaded he opened the door and stepped out. Ricky shot between his legs in a desperate dash for freedom, "Come here.” Robert commanded, normally he was an obedient dog but not this morning, he felt he could do anything he liked.

          They walked out of the yard into a sunny morning; the wind and rain were gone, turned right, past the back of the coach-yard and was able to see for the first time that the muddy lane, in fact continued, but it narrowed to a narrow bridle way that meandered towards a ruined barn. They passed just above the barn around which a number of wild looking cattle stood, watching in that suspicious way, that cattle do, they waved their long pointed horns about in an attempt to waft away clouds of midges that were doing their level best to upset them.

          After a while they crossed Whinrigg Hill and coming to the track that links Wedderlie to the south, with Horseupcleugh to the north, a mist came down, and engulfed them.

Suddenly Robert heard the a bark of another dog, and looking at Ricky, saw that he had heard it too,  he was looking about them, and after a moment they became aware that they were surrounded by a vast flock of sheep, who seemed totally unconcerned about their presence. Then they heard the dog bark again, and a voice behind them asked,

"Are you going up to Horseupcleugh, for the sale?"

Robert turned, and saw before them, a man about his own age, but of a weathered appearance, he carried a shepherds crook in one hand, and in the other he held a lamb.

"You're Captain Robert Nelson, from Whinrig, Aren't ye?

Robert answered him. "Yes. Have we met before?"

"Why! I've seen thee, in the' market at Duns, only last week, remember me now?"

It was as the shepherd answered, that Robert took in his appearance he was wearing a Smock, like farm labourers wore over two hundred years ago.

Before Robert was able to mention it, the man said.

"Come on, We can't stand here all day gabbing.” He pointed through the now patchy mist.

“Look! Sheep are already at the Dye Water, Come! Help me drive them across, or they'll be all over the hill" He continued. "Don't that dog of yours, do anything but cower at your feet, he's not much good at sheep, is he?"

With that he was off down the slope, Robert followed in a daze thinking that he hadn't been in Duns market for at least a year.

When they had crossed the river, and climbed the steep slope, he turned to Robert and said, “Master is going to build a new house up here, new farm too I reckon! Why there should be work for all the lads and lassies hereabouts, for hundreds of years to come."

Just then, Robert heard footsteps on the gravel path, and a voice said,

“Hello, its Robert Nelson, isn't it? Nice to see you again Captain, Laura and Emma not with you? I didn't hear your car, I say, Are you all right?  Come into the kitchen and sit down, you look like you've seen a ghost.”

It was a year since he'd last seen Mrs. McAndrews, but she looked just the same, her small frame full of vigour and movement, far more than many townspeople twenty years her junior.
                  
"Hector, are you there?" she called through to the front rooms, continuing without waiting for a reply, "Be a dear, fetch Mr. Nelson a dram, he's here and has no colour at all."

Her husband came through, with three glasses and a bottle of single-malt; he then poured out three generous portions.

"Whatever has happened?" he said, putting a glass in Robert's hand.

Robert took a long sip at the smooth dark liquid gold, and started to tell his story, they both listened in silence until he had finished and then Mrs. McAndrews was the first to speak.

"Well Hector, What did I tell you?

Hector offered a reply, "Yes, m' dear, it seems you were right, once again, as you so often are, in these matters.”

Mrs. McAndrews turned to Robert, as he was about to speak and said,

"It was about three months ago, or was it four, I don't rightly remember, anyway we were dining with the Duke, over at the castle. Fiona, that's his new wife you know, well she asked us in a roundabout way, had anything out of the ordinary occurred recently. Well of course at that time I could only answer no, but she went on to tell us that their ghillie Rory, had been invited to fish in the Watch Water with some visitors from Canada.
         
They had arrived quite early as a mist lay over the water, when he had seen that all the visitors had a good pitch, he set up his rods, picked out his favourite fly, Sapphire Supreme I seem to remember, he then proceeded to wade out into the water.

The mist was just beginning to lift and looking across the water to the further bank, the ruin of Sourlaw appeared. Or rather what should have been a ruin, for the bothy had new thatch and a wisp of blue smoke curled up from the chimney, and before he could remark on it to the visitors, he was hailed by a tall golden-haired man. He had his kilt tucked up under a broad studded belt. He appeared to be fishing, on the far bank.  

Rory had shouted back that the fishing was private, with that the apparition disappeared, the bothy returning to its ruined state. Well of course Rory was struck dumb, and says he hasn't had a dram since, in case he appears again."

What do you make of that?" she asked.

"I've never experienced anything like this before," Robert said, "though sometimes at Planting End when there was a high wind at night, we felt that there was someone about, but we never saw anyone."

Hector stood up, and cleared away the empty glasses, and said, "I'm going into Duns in a few minutes, I'll run you home."

"Thanks very much, by the way, what time is it? I promised Laura and Emma that I would take them into Duns this afternoon, but I quite forgot the time.”

Mrs. McAndrews looked at her watch, "Dratted thing, it's stopped" I'll just pop through to the hall, my grandfather's old clock keeps very good time."

After some moments she came back, muttering to herself,

"What's wrong,” asked Hector, of his wife.

"Most odd,” she said "every clock in the house has stopped."

"Well, never mind, we'll get off now m'dear" Hector turned and said,  "I'll pick up Mrs. Nelson and young Emma on the way, seems silly to take two cars into town, especially on market day, there's never enough parking places."

With that he kissed his wife fondly on the cheek, grabbed his waxed jacket, and cap and walked out. Robert thanked Mrs. McAndrews gratefully, and went outside to join her husband, who by this time had brought out his trusty Volvo estate.

"Pop your dog in the back, will you," he said.

"OK" Robert said, and quick as a flash they were off down the lane.

4.LAWS FAMILY REGISTER Apr 29 Number 500




Welcome to the Laws Family Register. 

================================================================
Little Silver Bells

By me

Part 4


That evening after dinner, despite the rain, Robert decided to take Ricky for his evening walk, so after putting on his waterproof jacket and turning up his collar, pulling on his gumboots and he walked to the car and took out a powerful flashlight.

They then set off up the lane splashing through the puddles, which by the time they got down to the shooting Lodge, had linked together to form a small stream, which tumbled down into the road. Robert and the dog turned up the valley so that the rain should not be in their faces on their return.

The road swung back and forth across the narrow valley, as they climbed higher and higher, and far below them the river gurgled, and roared.

Suddenly an owl hooted very close, almost too close for comfort. Robert swung the flashlight round and spotted it sitting on a power-line that crossed the valley. The bird turned its head to stare at them, hooted again, and flapped off into the darkness.

It was then, that Robert heard something that startled him and he stopped and listened intently.

When the wind and rain slowed a little, he could hear a man’s voice, singing a tune that he knew, but Robert couldn't recall its name. The voice came strong one minute, then weak the next, dependant on the wind and rain.

He then remembered the name “It's a lament called the Dark Island, though I never heard words to it before,” he said to Ricky. The dog looked up puzzled.

Robert tried to identify the direction the sound was coming from, but one moment it seemed to be far away, the next it appeared to be all around them. One minute deep and gruff the next high and crystal clear. He was reminded of the Military Tattoo at Edinburgh Castle, where a lone piper plays high on the battlements.
         
Robert said to the dog. ‘Time to turn back let's get out of this rain’. Perhaps a wee dram, purely medicinal you understand,” the dog at his feet readily agreed, straining at his lead to pull him back down the valley.

          It was then that he heard something else, a laugh, long and sweet, the laugh of a young woman, then silence except for the wind and rain. Suddenly, as they came to a little rise in the road, a shaft of moonlight blasted through the racing clouds, and illuminated the scene, for one brief moment he looked down into the valley.
         
In the middle of a narrow footbridge that lay across a raging torrent, two young people clung together in an embrace. The man wore a kilt with a cloak flung over one shoulder which streamed horizontal in the wind, along with his golden hair. A long sword swung at his waist.

The girl had hair as black as the raven, which fell heavily to her waist; she wore a simple white dress that flowed over her lithe body to her bare feet. At her waist was a broad leather belt that glinted in the moonlight, with little silver bells that tinkled in the wind, behind them a huge white horse pranced and reared, struggling to escape from the man and flee from the storm.

          Robert stifled a gasp, when just as suddenly as it had appeared, the shaft of moonlight vanished into the clouds, suddenly he heard a cry and the sound of the horse at the gallop, and it appeared to be coming up from the valley floor in their direction. Robert felt it was almost upon them, and he pulled Ricky close to him, and pressed into the bushes that bordered the narrow road.

Just as the huge beast was upon them, he heard another cry or rather a screech and then something passed very close to them. Robert pulled out the flashlight and directed its beam towards the fast disappearing sound. He saw not what he expected, but there, sat on the top bar of a gate, not two yards from them sat the owl, slowly folding its wings.
         

When they got back to the coach-yard, he heard a noise he hadn't heard there before, the sound of a stabled horse. He rushed into the cottage and breathlessly blurted out what he had seen and heard.

LAWS FAMILY REGISTER Apr 28 Number 499




Welcome to the Laws Family Register. 

================================================================
Little Silver Bells

by me

Part 3
Later the same day Robert and Laura decided to go down to the beach, while there they met and talked to a couple, who were exercising their dogs, Robert thought that their faces were familiar, but couldn't put a name to them.
         
"Are you on holiday?" the man enquired pleasantly.

"Yes we are," Robert answered.

Robert told the man that they had holidays in Scotland for years and adored it, but one day they would do it, move in for good.

His wife, if wife she was, stood shyly behind him, always in his shadow so that Robert couldn't get a good look at her, she appeared to be slim, with long raven hair that streamed out across her face in the freshening wind.

Laura asked, "Where are you living.”

The woman replied in a soft lilting voice not unlike her own "We're at Scarlaw, by the Watch Water, not far from Longformacus, you'll not be knowing it!"

"That’s odd,” Robert replied. "I know it very well; it's where the old man sits on the seat outside the cottage.”

He remembered past years walking up the valley to the reservoir, and repeatedly seeing an old man sitting outside the ruined cottage on the other side of the water. They had even thought of buying it but had decided that to restore the cottage would probably cost more than it was worth.

“We’ve a seat outside the front door, but there are no old people thereabouts, we're the only ones living up there, now."      
         
Robert explained that they were staying at Dirrington, not one mile down the valley from Scarlaw, Robert was sure he was not mistaken about the old man, but rather than cause an argument decided not to pursue the matter, then a few spots of rain fell so they said goodbye and made their way back to where the truck was parked.

The wind by now was blowing hard, and before they had gone many yards, the weather turned suddenly very cold, the sky clouded up, and steady rain started to fall. The journey back was uneventful, and when they got to Dirrington, the rain was falling like stair rods, the coach-yard had become a mass of puddles, and they dashed into the porch, to avoid getting soaked.
