There are lots of pleasant things to do in Ambergeldar, and while she's there, Meg intends to take advantage of all of them.

So today, she and Amy are out picnicking. It's a lovely day; the food is delicious; there is coffee and tea enough to satisfy both of them, and Susan is safe with her nursemaid in the castle.

All is extremely well.

It is a perfectly lovely day to picnic. (The palace grounds have any number of good picnic spots, but this is one of Amy's favorites.)

Amy selects a sandwich from the basket between them and grins at Meg.

"You do realize that the last time we tried anything like this we wound up flying into the Milliways lake."

The lake isn't that far away, really. But far enough. Especially since they're not picnicking on a flying carpet this time.

"I think that's highly unlikely," Amy says. "The gardeners don't allow that sort of thing."

Amy looks slightly perplexed, and then laughs.

"There would probably be singing mermaids," she confides. "And possibly crustaceans, as well."

"Like a lobster, or a crab," Amy says, helpfully, making pinching gestures with her hands.

Crustacea (no N) is something else all together.

Never, ever. They have standards.

"I missed that," says Amy. "I suppose there's a change the nonsense words made sense in whatever it is crustaceans speak?"

"Oh, I never have, either," says Amy. "Though now I do wonder if it's possible to learn to speak to rats."

She debates, and then decides, "I suspect not. At least, not for me. After all, I don't understand Simon Perryvall and Mr. Pemberthy even now, and I've had years to learn."

Amy laughs, curling her fingers up to match Meg's.

"I suppose we could try. After all, we shouldn't need that many words. Hello, and good-bye and food and tree and climb."

Amy laughs even more.

"Train them to be my allies in escaping the Council, you mean? It's not a bad idea."

"Oh, so long as they have someone's full attention, and food, they're happy. They're really not picky about the source of the scritches.

"Have you been enjoying your visit, Comtesse?"

"Oh, Meg, I'm glad," says Amy. "Every so often one just needs to be unworried. And we just love having you here, too."

Amy looks perplexed, and slightly worried.

"Whatever do you mean?"

"He is trying, Meg. He did, after all, spend untold years as a beast. And then the girl who disenchanted him left him for that woodsman, well, he has been through rather a lot."

Amy is trying very hard to keep a straight face.

"It might be the blonde thing," Amy concedes.

"Well, and you've been so nice to him, and I'm sure he genuinely appreciates it. And I think enjoys getting to speak French again with someone who doesn't have Lady Ursula's accent. Or lisp."
