Pip doesn’t dream in French these days, but it is the language of his childhood, so it will still feature in flashbacks. (For the original version of this scene, see volume 6, chapter 8.)
Little Pip: “Grandpa…!”
Grandpa Pip: “What? You’re crying? What’s going on?”
Pip: Sorry, Scarlet, but you’re a bit late. My loyalty is already spoken for.
It’s been that way ever since…oh, hey, a flashbacak!
Just look at that handsome kid.
Young Pip: Grand-père…!
Grandpa: Tiens? Tu pleures? Qu’est-ce qui t’arrive?
