Synopsis
You!' called a sharp voice behind her. 'Just where do you think you're going?' Agnes turned, slowly, reluctant to face yet another irritation in what had proved to be so far a very intimidating day. Framed by the swing door, the dirty beige of the hospital corridor behind her, stood a grizzle-haired woman of indeterminate age wearing the stiff grey of a senior nurse. Tm looking for Mrs McAleer, and I believe she's on this ward.' In answer, the nurse indicated a sign on the door which said, 'TB on ward. No unauthorised visitors.' 'And?' Agnes said. *You can read, can't you?' 'I assume parish visiting counts as authorised,' said Agnes sharply. The nurse took in Agnes's smart, short haircut, the crisp white shirt and the silk black jacket with matching trousers, and allowed a shadow of doubt to pass, sneer-like, across her face. 'Parish?' she said. Tm standing in for Father Julius, who has the flu, and I've a long list of patients to see, Kathleen McAleer being one of them, and I'd prefer not to waste any more of my time/ said Agnes, biting back anger at having to justify her presence to this small-minded woman who appeared to view any human contact as an obstacle to the efficient administration of her wards. The sneer became open hostility. 'Dear Father Julius/ she breathed. 'Do send him my best regards, and say I hope he comes back to work soon. And as for Kathleen McAleer -' she smiled her superiority 'well, you'll see.* With a whisk of apron she was gone.
