With an air of surprise, the wayfarer turned and walked back.

What is the matter? he asked.

Can you not see? Buckshee replied irritably. I cannot lower my arm; it is bewitched.

The wayfarer looked with interest at Banshee's arm. How did it get up there? he asked.



How would I live if it came down? he asked.

For some time Buckshee and the wayfarer looked at each other without speaking. Buckshee in fear and guilt, understanding that he was known to be a murderer and understanding also that somehow this man held him in his power. But in the face of the. wayfarer there was such kindness and goodwill that Banshee's fear soon melted away, and he found himself looking into that face as into the very heart of security. He felt warmed by an unaccountable and unfamiliar peace.

The fact is, the wayfarer said at last, that the remedy for all suffering lies in the destruction of its cause. That is why it matters how your arm got up there. But never mind. Pick up your knife.

Banshee's arm suddenly relaxed and fell to his side. He rubbed his shoulder, which had grown stiff, and, never taking his eyes from the wayfarer's face lest it disappear, he knelt down and recovered his knife. He wiped the dust from it and put it in his belt.
