I was prepared for anything. Cora stopped smiling altogether. Jenny fancied that the woman's face abruptly became an ashen gray, though such a rapid change in color could only be imaginary. �You've heard, then. Jenny felt cold again. The effect of the brandy had worn off. Not all, Aunt Cora. Just bits and pieces. Cora rose from the bed and walked to the south window of the room, watched the rain sheeting across the green lawn, misting among the trees like tangled webs of hair. Her fingers played on the glass, drawing senseless patterns and leaving trails of quickly evaporating dampness.
Maybe she could lose herself in a good book tonight. Except that, by not eating she would embarrass both Richard and Cora-and infuriate dear Anna who was so proud of her culinary art. Richard cleared the table while Anna brought dessert and coffee. She had made a special surprise to conclude the meal, an ice cream cake with four different flavors in eight different layers. It must have taken most all afternoon for this dish alone. She was a woman who loved her work. And her love produced, especially in this instance, a dish that was wildly delicious, even though the argument and the constant gloomy expectancy that hung over the mansion had dulled Jenny's appetite.

That uncontrollable fear of the unknown and the unexpected rose in Jenny. She thought of her mother and father, of Grandmother Brighton. She wished, oh so very much, that she had found something else to occupy her summer. But she realized there was no backing out now. She went with Harold into that bleak and foreboding house 2 If the exterior of the house had been foreboding, the interior made up for that.
