Cowering in cover
“He was lying deep in the bushes, in terror of his life . . . and I located him by the sounds of his heart beating! Yes, and it’s a sound that has stayed in my ears these many years, that awful drumming of a human heart, in agony and fear.”
Well, I didn’t believe it for a minute; if a beating heart could give you away when you’re cowering in cover, I’d have been dead meat before I was twenty.
Flashman and the Angel of the Lord, p.225, Harper Collins, 1995.
