Sample
Three months of getting her husband's breakfast tray to his door at eight-thirty each morning had made it something of a habit until Diane Edwards had moved into the house three weeks earlier and offered to perform the task on alternate weeks, a somewhat surprising reversal of form from one who had always maintained she found it impossible to open her eyes before nine or ten in the morning, much less get out of bed. But it was unfair, Diane said, for Ann to have to do the job alone. After all, John Har-rington was her stepfather and why shouldn't she help while she was staying here? Ann had accepted the offer gratefully, though with some misgivings, but Diane had served faithfully and without complaint. Now it was Ann's turn and the clock said she had nineteen minutes; time enough once you had the proper routine in mind. Not stopping to close the windows but noting with a quick glance across the back yard that it was another fine day, she hurried from her room, the robe billowing upward behind her as she fled down the stairs trying to belt it.
