When Porthos appears, Aramis allows him to get what he judges to be the right distance from him and then leaps, one arm twining it’s way around Porthos’ throat, before he can widen the distance between them any further.
The wine he has apparently drunk may have caused Porthos to not notice Aramis tailing him, but his reaction to this sudden assault is not nearly so lax. Before Aramis can tighten his grip, or reveal his identity he is flipped over Porthos shoulder with a speed and force that leaves him breathless, and not only from the jarring moment of impact when his body hits the paving stones. At the same moment his back makes contact, a dagger is whipped out and held to his throat. Which is to say everything is going exactly as Aramis had intended. (x)
