Illyria stared into the mist. “The view is spectacular.”

“Brings back memories,” Spike said.

“Oh? Good ones, I hope.”

“Not hardly. Lost a colleague last time I was here – hundred and eighteen years ago today – and the bloody git who staked him escaped.”

“Escaped? From you?”

“James stationed me ‘way the Hell up there.” Spike waved toward the clifftop behind them. “Git scarpered before I could get down.”

Illyria frowned. “That sounds . . . familiar. Have you told the story before?”

Spike snorted. “No – bloody Conan Doyle did. Got it all wrong, mind.”

“I see,” Illyria said, still admiring the Reichenbach Falls.
