“How’s my wounded hero?” James asks.
Robbie winces. “Feeling like a dart board after a tournament.” Before coming to Oxford, Robbie thought swans were gentle creatures. Truth is, they’re as gentle as rabid dogs, especially when an idiot tourist lets his daughter wander near a nest.
James had carried the girl to safety while Robbie distracted the enraged cob with an umbrella. It got in some nasty bites on Robbie’s hands and legs before retreating.
“Poor you. When we go home, I’ll kiss it and make it better.”
Robbie groans. Now he’s feeling an ache of a rather different sort.
