The next morning, for the first time in months, Vanessa felt better. Maybe the cleansing of her aura had worked. Or maybe it was the cake? She’d got the idea that the cake Frank had made the previous afternoon, as an offering to dispel the embarrassment, had something funny in it. It had made her feel light-headed, and happy for no good reason. The walls seemed to move now and again, and colours were brighter and more vivid. Now she remembered her aunt being annoyed with Frank and saying something like “You shouldn’t have made that cake, she’s not used to it.” That was more or less the point at which the butterflies on the lampshade began to fly away. Had Frank drugged her? Probably. What do you expect from a Dutch hippie who’d come here on holiday in 1969 and never left?
