After only a few steps, Dougless realized the man wasn’t behind her. Turning, she saw him gaping at a young girl on the opposite side of the road. She was dressed in the current English idea of chic: all in black. She wore tall black high heels, black hose, a tiny black leather skirt, and a huge black sweater that reached to the top of her thighs. Her short hair was sprayed purple and red, and stuck up like a porcupine’s quills. Dougless smiled. The punk rocker-influenced fashions were a shock to anyone, much less to a crazy man under the illusion that he was from the sixteenth century.
When the man made no effort to take the coins, she put them on the edge of the tomb. “Thanks for offering them to me, but no thanks. ” She turned to leave the church. ” he said loudly. Dougless clenched her fists at her sides. This man’s pseudo-Elizabethan grammar was getting on her nerves. She turned to face him. “Look, I know you have problems. I mean, maybe you cracked your head and can’t remember who you are, but that’s not my problem. I have problems of my own. ” “Nor do I,” the man said softly, looking at her with sad, hopeful eyes.
Her eyes were still red, and her hair was a tangled, frizzy mess—and she knew she had no way to repair the damage. As she looked into the mirror, she thought that if all women had to confront the world with the face God gave them, there would be a great increase in female suicides. Putting her shoulders back, she left the bathroom, where she almost ran into Nicholas, as he was waiting for her in the hall. “First we eat; then, madam, we talk,” he said as though his words were a dare. Dougless merely nodded as she went ahead of him down the stairs to the little dining room.
