"DESPAIR DEFERRED ... ?"

She had moved back to the window. So out of time had she become that she'd neglected the second part of her ritual; after looking down to the village she should have closed the window. As she raised her free hand to the sash, her eye was caught by something moving very slowly in the undergrowth of the coppice which here came right up to the house.
Yes, it was a cat moving like a shadow. It was stalking, stalking that bird which was picking up worms under the cake of old leaves. The beast stole out of cover, but so steadily that, though the bird between pecks gave its involuntary look around, its eye passed over this quietly changing blur.
She was watching the cat. Now it had ceased to move at all. She could see its shoulder muscles gently folding and mounting under its black fur. The cat was ready to spring. Miss Potts involuntarily flung at it the object in her hand. The cat leaped wildly. The bird squawked away into safety. 'fhe bottle had disappeared, but Miss Potts could see the glass stopper gleaming among some leaves.
The damp woodland, she thought, will suck up that bit of poison paste. Perhaps a few grubs will die, and, in consequence, a few saplings will grow better.
She left the window open, picked up the soap dish as she passed it, and replaced it. There were still five minutes before her next class. She'd have time to ring up the dentist and make an appointment.
