Mary Magdalene, Thursday August 31
Cyrus took time off from the grape pressing to go to see Matthias today. He was away for most of the day and I was starting to worry, but when he eventually returned he had a big grin on his face.
“It’s going to be all right, don’t you worry,” he said, giving me another of his reassuring hugs. He didn’t say what had been agreed and I didn’t want to ask, but later he started talking about buying new vines again, so it must have been a good outcome.
