Although that was hardly possible. To be honest, my powers of thought had switched off entirely. It had all begun with that kiss.
Gideon de Villiers had kissed me—me, Gwyneth Shepherd. I might also have stopped to remember that there was a wall between us, and a confessional window through which Gideon had squeezed his head and arms, and these were not the ideal conditions for kissing. Gideon moved back to his side of the confessional and rubbed the back of his head.
I came down from cloud nine with a bump and forgot the gargoyle. Unfortunately, I was rather breathless, which tended to spoil the effect. Good heavens!
And, wow, could Gideon kiss! No one in sight. Gideon took a cautious look out of the confessional and then emerged into the church. I stared blankly past the curtain at him. Did that mean that now he was carrying on as if nothing had happened? Was the kiss some kind of declaration of love? Or had we just been snogging a little because we had nothing better to do?
The dress was white, with sky-blue satin bows at the waist and the collar, probably the latest fashion in the year , but not quite right for wearing on public transport in the twenty-first century. Locks of it were falling untidily over his forehead. I stepped out into the nave of the church to join him and shivered. It was icy cold in here. Or because of what had just happened? I guessed my body had manufactured more adrenaline in those three days than in all my sixteen years of life before.
My head felt like it was bursting with new information and emotions. I gave myself a little shake. So if Gideon was carrying on as if nothing had happened—well, thanks a lot, I could do the same.
I tried to push past him, but he took hold of my arm and stopped me. Listen, about all that just now… He stopped, probably hoping I was going to interrupt him. I was only too keen to hear what he had to say.
I also found breathing difficult when he was standing so close to me.
But I immediately finished it in my mind. It was like setting fire to a curtain and then wondering why the whole house burned down. Okay, silly comparison. I looked at him coolly and expectantly. There was nothing I could do about that. All I needed was for my lower lip to start trembling.
Go on, say it! He took a hairpin out of my untidy hair by now my complicated arrangement of strands must have looked as if a couple of birds had been nesting in it , took one strand, and wound it around his finger.
With his other hand, he began stroking my face, and then he bent down and kissed me again, this time very cautiously. I closed my eyes—and the same thing happened as before: my brain suffered that delicious break in transmission.
Well, all it was transmitting was oh, hmm, and more! But that lasted only about ten seconds, because then a voice right beside us said, irritated, Not starting that stuff up again, are you? Startled, I pushed Gideon slightly away and stared right into the face of the little gargoyle, who was now hanging upside down from the gallery under which we were standing.
To be precise, he was the ghost of a gargoyle. Gideon had let go of my hair and had a neutral expression on his face. Oh, God! What must he think of me now?
I could read nothing in his green eyes, or at the most I saw slight surprise there—and annoyance? You heard me, you did! He was about the size of a cat, and he had a catlike face, except that as well as his big, pointed, lynxlike ears, he had two round horns, little wings on his back, and a long, scaly, lizard tail ending in a triangular point. He was lashing the tail back and forth in excitement.
You can see me too! You can see me and hear me! He dropped from the gallery to one of the pews and hopped up and down on it. Golden beryl Faceted golden beryl, Unlike emerald , golden beryl generally has very few flaws.
Probably the largest cut golden beryl is the flawless carat stone on display in the Hall of Gems , Washington, D. The name originates from Goshen, Massachusetts , where it was originally discovered. In the past, goshenite was used for manufacturing eyeglasses and lenses owing to its transparency. Nowadays, it is most commonly used for gemstone purposes.
However, goshenite can be colored yellow, green, pink, blue and in intermediate colors by irradiating it with high-energy particles. It can be routinely heat treated to remove patches of yellow and is occasionally treated by irradiation to improve its color. The greatest concentration of gem-grade red beryl comes from the Ruby-Violet Claim in the Wah Wah Mountains of mid-western Utah, discovered in by Lamar Hodges, of Fillmore, Utah , while he was prospecting for uranium.
Synthetic red beryl is also produced. While gem beryls are ordinarily found in pegmatites and certain metamorphic stones, red beryl occurs in topaz-bearing rhyolites. Associated minerals include bixbyite, quartz , orthoclase , topaz , spessartine , pseudobrookite and hematite.
