J'ai dit oui ça me dirait, on n'est jamais allés à Blanès, ce n'est pas si loin, une heure en voiture depuis Barcelone, à peine plus. On s'est mis d'accord, on irait le lendemain. Le soir, on s'est couchés en chien de fusil dans des draps blancs comme un linceul, j'ai respiré son odeur du soir, un peu âcre, et senti los angeles chaleur de sa cuisse sur laquelle j'avais posé l. a. major. Je me suis endormie heureuse sûrement, sans doute, pourquoi pas ? Je ne savais plus bien à présent, et le matin du dimanche eleven mars, en fin de matinée, nous avons pris chacun un livre et nous sommes partis pour Blanès.»

The huge class that contained Margaret was destined to provide his own womenfolk; those in whom the intention of being attractive could sometimes be made to get itself confused with performance; those with whom a too-tight skirt, a wrong-coloured, or no, lipstick, even an ill-executed smile could instantly discredit that illusion beyond apparent hope of renewal.
