All the arguments that I had prepared were dust before her incomprehensible anger. � I spoke carefully around her grip on my chin. � She let me go so abruptly that I stumbled. Doyle caught my arm, then took me into the circle of his arm, putting me farther from her and closer to the middle of the men. I couldn�t argue with the precaution.
