Excerpt from The Amazing Adventures of Letitia Carberry
No, she snapped. GO out in the hall and see what has happened.
Miss Lewis yawned again and groped around in the half-light for her slippers. It was more than Tish could stand. She hopped out Of bed in her bare feet and limped to the door.
The hall was almost dark and across it the woman with the appendix - or without - was groaning. But half-way along, where the night nurse has her desk and keeps her papers and where the annunciator for the patients' bell is fastened to the wall, Tish saw a group Of five or six nurses, gathered about somebody in a chair. One Of them came running past with a glass Of something, and the crowd opened to admit the girl and the glass and closed again. Miss Lems came and looked over Tish's shoulder.
