THE TEMPERING

me can you explain exactly what you mean by the first pressure on a trigger?"
" Well, no, not if you want me to put it altogether in words. No, I can't."
" Can you explain what you mean by a corkscrew?" "In actual words? No."
" Can you describe what you see when you see a puff of cigarette-smoke?"
" No."
" But you've got a tongue. And a tongue isn't always enough. It's like saying: `You've got a pen. Write a book.' I'm about the only person who has talked to Thurstan, and I'm telling you that the thing that has made that man ferocious is, that he's never been able to say what he's wanted to say. That sounds crazy. But I've had his story from him.
" His father was an animal. He used to beat his mother. She was a silent woman. Thurstan never really learned to talk. Nobody talked to him. He came from a village in the wilds of the North. He hardly went to school at all. Do you remember how he'd always ask somebody to tell him what was on the detail: usually me? He couldn't read or write. He's ashamed of it. He was ill-treated by everybody except his mother, and she never talked to him, and he was unable to express his sympathy for her. As soon as he was old enough-and he was a strong kid-he went into a mine. I can't get a clear idea of what he did, because I don't know the circumstances. But he was in charge of pit-ponies, or something of that sort. And it seems that he had reason to be scared of one of them."
