But now that Bertie is no longer with me, now that I'm alone again, she is back, and it is as bad now as it was when I was an adolescent — perhaps even worse. Excited by the danger of seducing Abdul's daughter and wife, Oswald begins his seduction while poolside with the wife and daughter. I can't reach it.

The narrator bitterly reflects on his life and feels he has accomplished nothing worthwhile. After waiting patiently for several hours, Oswald grows disgruntled. White at the same moment placed her hands behind her, and hurriedly unfastening the strings of her apron, put that useful article of apparel beneath the cushion of her chair. There was an air of prosaic wholesomeness about the room which it had lacked on the previous night, and the dirty, shrivelled little paw was pitched on the sideboard with a carelessness which betokened no great belief in its virtues.

Sometimes fat balls roll from the clouds and bounce off the well cover and courtyard, filling all the dips and runnels, but mostly it is just a mindless gray drizzle that scribbles everything out. The sergeant-major shook hands, and taking the proffered seat by the fire, watched contentedly while his host got out whiskey and tumblers and stood a small copper kettle on the fire.

The travellers make their way across the Venusian landscape to find a "sun dome", a shelter with a large artificial light source.

A perfect fusillade of knocks reverberated through the house, and he heard the scraping of a chair as his wife put it down in the passage against the door. The ironic twists of this story show that Oswald's vanity and pride are both dangerous, and work together to destroy him.

When his son begins playing in a local playground, he becomes deeply disturbed when he sees a bully from his youth. The last face was so horrible and so simian that he gazed at it in amazement.

He heard the chair drawn back, and the door opened. After all, I cannot just sit here and wait for her. White, in a dazed fashion, "yes. In the night, Oswald is sure that someone is watching him.

The darkness was oppressive, and after lying for some time screwing up his courage, he took the box of matches, and striking one, went downstairs for a candle. The American response was similarly tepid. As events move between London, Sussex and the idyllic South of France, the relationship between these two women grows more entangled and complex.
