I remember seeing some pictures of Granddad on an old rake like that.
"Granddad" himself, as Malasha in her own mind called Kutuzov, sat apart in a dark corner behind the oven.
It seemed to her that it was only a personal struggle between "Granddad" and "Long-coat" as she termed Bennigsen.
In the midst of the conversation she noticed "Granddad" give Bennigsen a quick, subtle glance, and then to her joys she saw that "Granddad" said something to "Long-coat" which settled him.
Malasha too looked at "Granddad."
