Excerpt from Cecily and the Wide World: A Novel of American Life Today It was what in his own mind Dr. Fairchild always called "the hour between" that pleasant twilit interval when, the work of the afternoon being over, and dinner and the duties and diversions of the evening yet to come, one may pause to savor life. It is a time to walk city streets, if you are of an observant turn of mind, mingling with the crowds, and watching the lights come on; or, if yours be the domestic turn of mind, to sit a few minutes with your wife before your own lights are turned on, and hear what the bairns have been about today. Either of these ways of passing the hour would have suited Avery, who was an observer by nature, and domestic by circumstances; but as he had been up most of the night before, he had hardly energy enough to stroll, and as Cecily was at one of her innumerable afternoon parties, he could not talk family matters with her. So he lay on a couch in the dim living-room, hearing vague sounds from above-stairs of his children being put to bed, and conscious of the fact that mutton roasted in the kitchen. He was tranquil, and rather happy; he would have liked to lie there indefinitely, with his home life thus vaguely presented to him.
