Father would probably remark that only a lunatic could wish to get up in the middle of the night unless for purposes connected with sport. Marion and Isabel would be sure to laugh and tease and say things before people about their little sister's queer ways, till Fay would feel hot and prickly with self-consciousness as though ginger-beer were running in her veins. She knew it all so well!
Therefore was she most careful and cautious, and crept like a little slim thief out into the dark, gravelly compound. Above her, against a glimmering back ground, towered the fir trees, gloomy, fragrant. A steep track that climbed to an upper road in the hill-side made a wavering, uncertain streak, like a column of rising mist in the dimness. She paused, and drew deep breaths of the keen, cold air already quick with expect ance of the dawn; then, nervous as an animal, she drew back into the darker shelter of the wall, for a sudden light shot out from the servants' quarters and told her the establishment was stirring.
