Around her the house lay sleeping. She rose and dressed quietly, putting on a clean white shirt, her blue jeans and her sneakers, and went downstairs. Her heart lay within her like a weight of misery...; her whole body ached with the pain of it.
She left the Cottage and walked slowly toward the ocean. As she neared the theatre she thought suddenly, I must talk to Kurt. It was only because he was drunk, and I handled it so stupidly. I must make everything all right between us again.
She had the key to Mr. Price’s office in the pocket of her jeans and she let herself in quietly and walked across the auditorium toward Kurt’s dressing room. But he will be asleep, she thought. I can’t wake him.
Then she heard the sound of voices from Kurt’s dressing room and she pressed back quickly into the shadows. The door opened and Dottie emerged, with Kurt behind her, leaning lazily in the doorway. Dottie blew him a kiss and hurried across the auditorium. Kurt shut the door. Neither of them had seen Elizabeth.
