Perhaps it irritated Bennett, but she could not let him take the blame. - Major protected me, - said Marie. - But he's not doing this every hour - with a grin noticed Nathan. For a long time there was silence. Finally Abington, clearing his throat, asked: - How long did it last? Marie mechanically shifted from place to place items lying in front of her on the table. - Two days, - she said. - ... And now it is clear why you're willing to grab each other's throats. Okay so, I again come to your aid. You are free, Prestvud. I will protect this beautiful maiden in the next few hours. Take this time to capture your enemy. It would be foolish to wait, when you are attacked. Do you understand me?
