Today's paragraph occurs in the same scene. Our heroine, Alice, is finally face-to-face with the troublesome, dream-provoking Officer Drey.

A cool breeze crossed my flushed face, alerting me to the fact that the front door was wide open. Since the neighbors didn’t know I was going crazy—I hoped—they might misinterpret our pose, should they happen to look out their windows or drive past. Perhaps it would be more expedient to make peace with my apparition instead of yelling at him, so we could close the door and take care of this matter privately.
