While I don't have the book with me, so can't comment on this particular
passage (which was the subject of discussion earlier), I would say that
passages like these are the Silk in Silkhorn popping up, outside of Horn's
conscious control, rather than the Horn in Silkhorn signaling that he is
aware of Silk's presence.
