The house was very quiet after they’d gone, for both Mrs. White and Polly had the evening off. After a while the quietness became almost oppressive, for it allowed too many unwelcome thoughts to intr...ude, and so as it was a very fine evening, she decided to go for a walk.
Regent’s Park was very lovely in such weather, and a great many people were to be seen strolling along the paths and among the trees. There were long shadows across the grass when at last she turned back again, and the sun was sinking beyond the groves in a blaze of glorious crimson and gold that was reflected like molten gold in the waters of the lake.
She paused at the entrance of the park to look back again at the sunset, and so didn’t notice the carriage that had been waiting at the curb nearby for some considerable time now. Its blinds were down as it moved slowly forward toward where she stood, and as it halted almost alongside, there was a commotion nearby. A young blood driving a curricle far too fast around the curve of Park Crescent clipped the wheel against a bollard and was flung into the road as the vehicle toppled over.
