this is ridiculous, thought celeste,

as she looked down into the square where the young man -

somehow she assumed he was a young man, though obviously she could not see him clearly -

was seated by himself in front of the cafe,

which appeared to be closed -

why should i be afraid to go down into a street in the middle of paris,

late though it be?

celeste glanced back at the sleeping albertine.
