' Jane mentioned a typewriter , paper , carbon -- when asked for anything , Jim had a habit of drawing in his breath even more sharply , as if he 'd been wounded .

Looking out , she saw men in suits getting into the medium-sized cars . The large car was already gone .

Mrs Grindlewood-Gryke says we can do a Roman banquet so we got a book from the library about what sort of food they ate . You 'd never believe it !

I took it and refilled the iodine bottle for my handbag . ` Did you lot say you were going up to Appleby ?

' ` It 'll give me a chance to get on with my baking an' that then for the WI stall , '

Gilly dragged a heavy stuffed chair backward to the shelf and climbed up on the very top of its back . On tiptoe , leaning against the rickety lower shelves to keep from toppling , she could barely reach the book . She pulled at it with the tip of her fingers , catching it as it fell . Something fluttered to the floor as she did so . Money . She half-fell , half-jumped off the chair , and snatched it up . Two five-dollar bills had fallen out from behind the encyclopedia just when she was(tense) needing money so badly . Here they 'd come floating down . Like magic . Ten dollars would n't get her very far , but there might be more where these came from . She climbed up again , stretching almost to the point of falling . Although she could just about reach the top shelf with her fingertips , she was very unsteady . Heavy footsteps thudded across the front porch . The front door opened . ` You all right , Gilly , honey ? '

' Salt said , attacking a saddle of mutton with a terrible knife and sculpturing the meat with precision . ` We 'll be (tense) needing more brandy from the cellar but it can wait awhile .

Here it comes , like a chime . A naked female stare . Her body is probably naked by now but there is nothing as naked as human eyes : they have n't even got skin over them . Like a chime , the moment of intense focus .
