" I bid you unwelcome! Are you not frightened ?"
" No," replied the child. " Why should I be ? I've done no harm.''
" Do you call coming here no harm ?" All the time he never stopped still a second, but kept gloomily mooning about, his profile with its pro­truding nose and chin in sharp outline always turned towards her.

" Dear me! I don't like him a little bit!" murmured Monica, staring vacantly about, and found that where he had stood there was a big board on which in big letters was inscribed—
Trespassers will be Moonstruck.
