I came back from the bathroom in the middle of the night, I saw dancing lights through the window, down below on the Great Lawn were Miss Haroyd and Katie. They were dancing naked with candles in their hands. I went back to bed.
Another person to worry about – two days later it happened.
Everyone was in the Great Hall, I at the back and Miss Pringold babbling away on the rostrum at the front. Why did she not keep to the speech I had written for her?
I noticed that Katie had unbuttoned her blouse and lit a candle. I put my hand over her mouth and bundled her out of the hall. She did not struggle. I manhandled her down the corridor and into the sick room.
I looked in her eyes – I could see two candle flames.
I looked in her eyes – I realised that she could not see me.
