I said Washington Square, she called. The car skidded dangerously on the wet pavement as the taximan twisted in his seat.Doncha spose I know my way around, lady? he demanded.As if to show his contempt for a person so stupid as not to know that there was more than one way to a destination, he stepped on the accelerator. The machine slued- above her own cry of quick terror Martha heard the crunch of crushing metal. Then, hardly aware of how she got there, she found herself standing on the sidewalk, too frightened and angry to berate the reckless taximan.The drizzle that had been a contributing cause of the accident dripped disconsolately from the boughs of the forlorn trees that bordered this square which was not Washington Square. She felt a great drop strike her neck. Three hundred dollars worth of evening wrap- one hundred and fifty dollars worth of frock- eighteen dollars worth of gold slippers would be ruined in two minutes of rain.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
