"Yes, my child."
" Did you hear me call you then?"
"So high up as that?"
" Yes; I heard you quite well."
" Do take me home."
" Have you had enough of your old home already?"
"Yes, more than enough. It isn't a home at all now."
"I thought that would be it," said North Wind. " Everything, dreaming and all, has got a soul in it, or else it's worth nothing, and we don't care a bit about it. Some of our thoughts are worth nothing, because they've got no soul in them. The brain puts them into the mind, not the mind into the brain."
"But how can you know about that, North Wind? You haven't got a body."
"If I hadn't, you wouldn't know anything about me. No creature can know another without the help of a body. But I don't care to talk about that. It is time for you to go home."
So saying, North Wind lifted Diamond and bore him away.
