She had seated herself, when she had been left alone, on the edge of a brocade chair upholstered to match the heavily draped curtains which were pulled over the window. For the first time since she had entered the room Vanessa caught a glimpse of herself in one of the long, gold-framed mirrors which hung on the walls. Because she was so agitated she told herself that she looked out of place, and the sooner she crept away as unexpectedly as she had come the better. She had in fact in a panic risen to her feet, ready to leave the room, when the door opened and the Marquis came in.

Her wardrobe was very limited and she had the feeling that in the Marquis's eyes all her gowns, which she had made herself, would seem cheap and unfashionable.
