‘They talk about you,’ he says.

‘Who does?’

‘The Parliament of Foxes gossip about nothing else,’ he says. ‘And on the edges of the horse fairs and carnivals from Appleby to Goldsithney they pass your name from hand to hand in the hope of guessing the future.’

‘What did you think was happening?’ I asked.

‘I thought I’d developed ESP,’ she said. ‘Like that girl in the Stephen King book. Only it would have been a lot more useful when I was young, still, why look a gift horse in the mouth? I always say.’

‘So when did it start?’ I asked.

‘Last year,’ she said. ‘I knew something was wrong when the TV blew up.’

‘Hail Dominic and Victor,’ the foxes chorused, ‘soon to be blessed above all other minor landowners in Herefordshire and the wider border regions.’

‘What?’ said Victor.

‘Congratulations,’ said the first fox.
