The imperturbable house swam before her eyes. She couldn’t tell if the roiling in the pit of her stomach was due to the beer, or the lack of food, or the long anxious load of expectation that had been the party, now gone.

Too late, she remembered she had left her shoes behind. Well, that would be something to wait for, anyway.
