"It is quite alone, standing well back from the road, quite three miles from the village."
The Women in the wall
"It is a big airy room, the whole floor nearly, with windows that look all ways, and air and sunshine galore" ... "for the windows are barred for little children, and there are rings and things in the wall"
"I'm getting really fond of the room in spite of the wallpaper. Perhaps because of the wallpaper. It dwells in my mind so !I lie here on this immovable bed -- it is nailed down, I believe -- and I follow that pattern for about an hour."
Behind the outside pattern the dim shapes get clearer every day. It is always the same shape, only very numerous. And it is like a woman stooping down and creeping behind the pattern."
"I thought seriously of burning the house-- to reach the smell"
"I think that woman gets out in the daytime! And I'll tell you why-- privately-- I've seen her! I can see her out of every one of my windows! It is the same woman, I know, for she is always creeping, and most women do not creep by daylight."
