“I ‘ope you enjoyed our little jaunt together,” Billy Shepherd said, as I wiped my hands. “I ‘ave. I’ll say one thing for you, there’s never a dull moment when you’re around, wot with everyone who meets you wantin’ to kill you.” “ I s ‘pose I should thank you for stopping Hawkins from running me through,” I said grudgingly. “Nah, don’t do that. I only did it ‘cos I didn’t want ‘im to deny me the pleasure of killin’ you meself one day. For now, you make me laugh, but when I’ve ‘ad enough of that, I’ll make sure there’s somethink special in store for you.” His stare was chilling, like a snake biding its time before the strike.

"He tried to knife Sister Patience!" Miss Miller cried in surprise. "Of course he did," I (Cat) replied, grimly. "He's Billy Shepherd, not the Good Shepherd."
