But how . ” Bettylou half-whispered to herself in consternation. Then, aloud, she asked, “Please, Elder Morai, did . . could I have struck my head when I fell? Though your lips never moved, I could have . . I . . ” Bettylou saw broad smiles appear both on the face of Elder Morai and on that freckled one of the auburn-haired younger man.
