He hummed as he sat changing his shoes, occasionally substituting for the hum the words of an old song: "Blow the wind southerly, southerly, southerly, Blow the wind south o'er the bonny blue sea. The room with double doors was as cold as the passage. Chairs of ugly comfort, a rigid, delicate sofa, books elderly rather than old, more flowers.
The wind shuddering in a frozen chimney, the storm a waterfall on the bay window. Ted Tice sat in one of the elephantine, shabby chairs and rested his head on the stale extra piece of plush; rapt with newness and impending newness.
The room would have been a study at one time, or a morning-room—the expression "morning-room" belonging to the same vague literary category as upper servant. Somewhere there was a larger room, blatantly unheatable, closed up for the duration. The wartime phrase came readily, even in peace; even as you wondered, the duration of what. In the fireplace, below the vacant grate, there was a row of The Transit of Venus 7 aligned fragments, five or six of them, of toasted bread smeared with a dark paste and dusted with ashes.
He was used to cold and sat as much at his ease as if the room had been warm. He could not physically show such unconcern in the presence of others because the full-grown version of his body was not quite familiar to him; but was easy in his mind, swift and unhurried. From all indications, his body had expected some other inhabitant. He supposed the two would be reconciled in time—as he would know, in time, that the smeared toast was there to poison mice, and that Tom was the cat.
A book beside his chair was closed on a pencil that marked a place. He took it up and read the spine: "Zanoni. That it should be out, open, and read was more improbable. For an instant he thought it was the same girl who now came in, the girl from the stairs.
The reason for this was that they were sisters, although the present one was fair, and shorter. She said, "I am Grace Bell. She had a very good new woollen dress, colour of roses. They both knew —it was impossible not to—that he saw her beautiful. But both, because of youth, feigned ignorance of this or any other beauty. I was sent to bring you. Assurance showed she had been pretty since childhood. There had also been classes in deportment. He admired her ability to walk smoothly with him at her heels.
She was not at all plump but gave a soft impression, yielding. The dress was a rarity to him—the cloth, the cut. It was the first time Ted Tice had noticed the way a dress was made, though he had winced often enough for a brave showing in the clothes of the poor.
The rose-red dress had come from Canada by surface mail, having been posted by the son of this household, a government official 8 Shirley Hazzard to whom Grace Bell was engaged. He was bringing another dress to her when he returned to Britain from the Ottawa conference, and after that they would be married.
A little curled chrysanthemum of a dog was in heaven at her approach. Someone was shaking a bell. Grace was opening a door. And the lights went up by themselves, as on a stage. Y o u could see the two sisters had passed through some unequivocal experience, which, though it might not interest others, had formed and indissolubly bound them. It was the gravity with which they sat, ate, talked and, you could practically say, laughed.
It was whatever they exchanged, not looking at one another but making a pair. It was their eyes resting on you, or on the wall or table, weighing up the situation from a distance of events and feelings: their eyes, which had the same darkness if not the same distinction.
Because they were alike in feature, the contrast in colouring was remarkable. It was not only that one was dark and one fair, but that the one called Caro should have hair so very black, so straight, heavy and Oriental in coarse texture.
Grace was for this reason seen to be fairer than she was—as she was judged the lighter, the easier, for the strength of Caro. People exaggerated the fairness, to make things neat: dark she, fair she. Wearing a cardigan that had perhaps been blue, Caro was pouring water from a jug.
You deferred to her future beauty, taking it on trust. In looks, Caro was as yet unfinished, lacking some revelation that might simply be her own awareness; unlike Grace, who was completed if not complete.
Grace was smiling and handing corned beef and potatoes, innocently rehearsing a time when the meat and vegetables would be hers indeed. Ted Tice saw then that on her left hand she wore a ring set with diamonds. But had been loyal to Caro before he noticed this. Caro did not necessarily belong here: Caro would decide at which table she belonged.
She was young to have grasped the need io Shirley Hazzard for this. Her other discovery of consequence was also not original: that the truth has a life of its own. It was perhaps in such directions that her energies had flowed, leaving her looks to follow as they might.
What she had read had evidently made her impatient of the prime discrepancy—between man as he might be, and as he was. She would impose her crude belief—that there could be heroism, excellence—on herself and others, until they, or she, gave in. Exceptions could arise, rare and implausible, to suggest she might be right.
To those exceptions she would give her whole devotion. It was apparently for them she was reserving her humility. Some of this might be read in her appearance. Having not yet begun to act, she could indulge a theory.
At the same time, her lips were parted, tender, impressible, as they might have been in sleep. They had not yet addressed each other at table, the girls and the young man. He, with impenetrable simplicity, was listening to the old astronomer at the head of the table, the eminent scientist.
Your eminence: a jutting crag on which a collar and tie, and spectacles, had been accurately placed. Together, the youth and the old man were to read the world's horoscope. Engrossed in listening, as was only suitable, Ted Tice. Despite angina, the father had fast, definite gestures—taking up his water-glass with a sort of efficiency and setting it down with a hard little snap.
Pressing a napkin quickly to his sculpted mouth, not to waste time. Snap snap, snap snap snap. He might have been at a desk rather than a dining-table. He talked with abrupt velocity, also, and had already reached the end of the world. Some form of social structure existed until now.
Say what you like about it. Now we're at the end of all that. You'll be the ones to bear the brunt. In the same way, arrivals at a rainy resort will be told, "We've had fine weather until today. Say what you like. When Sefton Thrale said the word "global" you felt the earth to The Transit of Venus 3 be round as a smooth ball, or white and bland as an egg.
And had to remind yourself of the healthy and dreadful shafts and outcroppings of this world. You had to think of the Alps, or the ocean, or a live volcano to set your mind at rest.
Professor Thrale did not much care for the fact that Grace came from Australia. Australia required apologies, and was almost a subject for ribaldry. Australia could only have been mitigated by an unabashed fortune from its newly minted sources—sheep, say, or sheep-dip.
And no fabled property of so many thousand acres or square miles, no lucky dip, attached itself to Grace. On the contrary, Grace came encumbered with a sister; and even with a halfsister, happily absent on holiday at Gibraltar.
By daylight Ted Tice's face was seen speckled and flaked, artless as the face reflected in the salty mirror of a seaside kiosk in summer. His forehead was divided by a slight vertical groove. He had an injury to one eye—a brother had done it when they were children, playing in the yard with a stick: a light streak like the scratch of a fingernail on new paint.
Such persons went forward quickly, having nothing to relinquish; and might well attach themselves, as in this case, to new aspects of astronomy developed from radar techniques of the last war. It all hung together. Sefton Thrale recalled a paper, like a twinge of his illness, on which Ted Tice's precocious achievement was set out against all the odds; where willfulness was not disproved by aberrant undertakings—studies of radiation in postwar Japan, and an intention of spending the coming winter in Paris at work with a controversial physicist.
Sefton Thrale said to himself that Ted Tice would wind up in America: "That is where he will wind up"—a young man's ambition envisaged as a great winch on which abilities might be deftly and profitably coiled. Thrale, "are from our garden. Tice's future ascendancy could not, like Caro's beauty, be taken on faith: some sign was needed as to whether he would win or fail—both possibilities being manifestly strong in him.
Even if he were at last to carry all before him, it was hard to imagine him properly illustrious in age, like the Professor himself. It was hard to foresee that a name like Tice might carry weight, or that a streaked eye could become a distinction.
In fact Edmund Tice would take his own life before attaining the peak of his achievement. But that would occur in a northern city, and not for many years. Sefton Thrale's own important work had been accomplished in youth, before the Great War. Later on he became a public figure by writing a small, lucid book that bridged, or claimed to bridge, a gulf or gap. He had stood with his unbudging foot on the fireguard and his hand in his pocket, and talked of the future; and had kept this up so long and so publicly that persons of all kinds now recognized him at sight in the Sunday papers—"Still going strong, eh, you have to hand it to him.
The blazer—pulled down at one side by his hand jammed in the pocket, gripping the presumed pipe —gave the effect of a sagging, half-timbered house. He used outworn idiom: "Lombard Street to a china orange," "All round China to get to Charing Cross"; "The Old Lady"—even —"of Threadneedle Street": phrases outdated before his time, which he cultivated and kept going if not alive.
Still spoke of Turkey as "the sick man of Europe," though the entire Continent was a casualty ward long since. His sympathies were with the manageable distances of the past rather than the extravagant reach of the future. The future had been something to talk about, one foot safely on the fender. It was easy for youth to scent this out and condemn. Less easy to feel for what was human in it, let alone pitiful. In the main Professor Thrale was allowed to hold forth, as now, in quick orations that supposed no disagreement.
But, if challenged, lost his sure grip on pipe and future.
A cloud of confused indignation would then rise from him, like dust from The Transit of Venus 13 an old book whose covers have been banged together for cleaning. In private matters he had not been clever and had dissipated his wife's fortune, like his own potential, in naive investments.
A knighthood, now forthcoming, had been long delayed. But his name was public, and weighed in a public and political affair such as siting a telescope. Ted Tice took mustard.
It came out that he had been on holiday these past two weeks, walking in the West Country. He had an interest, furthermore, in prehistoric monuments, and had spent the solstice at an excavation near Avebury Circle. It was not difficult to imagine lofty stones as his companions. Thrale said they sometimes received, at Peverel, vibrations from the missile base near Stonehenge. Though considerately fired away from the monument, the rockets were not without local danger.
A window had once shattered in a guest's bedroom, luckily causing no injury. Any news of Paul? And that, if balked of it, they might try condescension. Palliating the Professor's misdemeanour, the three women quickly testified to an absence of news. And Ted Tice perceived that women's indulgence had been indispensable to Sefton Thrale's fame. As was expected of her, Mrs. Thrale made known that Paul Ivory was her godson, who would shortly come to stay. Ted might have heard of plays by Paul Ivory, in university productions; but had not.
Well, in any case, a young person of promise who was soon to have a work produced on the London stage. He would bring them in, forgotten or io Shirley Hazzard disparaged poets of his youth, with loyal calculation—the poignant quotation, the interviewer asking, "Now who said that? Or Rex Ivory. Thrale remarked, "Rex Ivory was not a great poet. But he was a true poet. Three young men in a garden, two of them seated in cane chairs, one standing with hands raised and spread. The standing figure, in open shirt and white trousers, declaimed to the others, who were conventionally dressed in their clothes of Heads of pale hair were helmets, were crowns or halos.
A larger nimbus arched the garden, where trees were massed above larkspur and a long lawn was methodically streaked with rolling. It seemed to be near dusk.
And the magical youths on the grass were doomed by coming war, even the survivors. Charmian Thrale said, "Like an eve in a sinless world. Again the women knew it, and sighed in their thoughts over the old man's curt answer: "In fact, the son.
And is rising so swiftly that there is no telling where he may yet go. Impossible to measure speed and position simultaneously. The Transit of Venus 15 "And is all but engaged"—the Professor was determined to prevail—"to the daughter of our neighbour at the castle. Whatever heresy had existed in this house had come from upper servants.
He recalled the castle, its grey walls discouraging even to lichens. Seeing into their souls, the Professor told them, "It's a brave man these days who'll marry the daughter of a lord.
With all you radicals around. Yet it was Grace who looked up and said, "Perhaps he loves her. Young people should follow their fancy. Why not? Caro here would marry a mechanic if she was so minded. The girl went on, "Jt's true. I'm not only ignorant but have no affinity for mechanical things.
Or for science either. The Professor was preparing to explain, when Caro said, "Do you mean, the transit of Venus? He continued as if she had neither spoiled nor spoken. Endeavour for undiscovered Australia if not to observe, en route, at Tahiti, the planet Venus as it crossed the face of the sun on the third of June and thus to determine the distance of earth from sun?
Again they looked at Caro, established as a child of Venus. Tice said, "The calculations were hopelessly out. A phenomenon of irradiation in the transit. And then, from one hour to the next, all over. He said, "There are the contacts, and the culmination. Venus cannot blot out the sun. One could not relate in the presence of two virgins how, at Tahiti on that blazing day of June , Venus had been busy in other matters.
While their officers were engrossed with James Short's telescopes, the crew of the Endeavour had broken into the stores at Fort Venus to steal a heap of iron spike-nails—with which they procured for themselves the passing favours of Tahitian women; and the permanent infection of a venereal disease no subsequent floggings could cure.
Ted Tice said, "Another astronomer crossed the world to see that same transit, and was defeated. Tice could not teach a lesson, but would pay tribute. Having lost his original opportunity, he waited eight years in the East for that next transit, of When the day came, the visibility was freakishly poor, there was nothing to be seen.
There would not be another such transit for a century. At that moment he and she might have been the elders at the table, elegiac. She said, "Years for Venus. Professor Thrale had had enough of this. The girl asked Ted Tice: "What was his name? Guillaume Legentil. Thrale had made custard.
A mottled Irish maid brought dishes on a tray. Thrale had been brought up to believe, on pain of losing her character, that her back must never touch the chair: never, never. This added to her air of endurance, and made it seem also that she looked you in the face more than is usual. It was she who had thought of the summer seaside in regard to the quality of Ted Tice—the speckled mirror dangling among the tags for deck-chairs and the keys for bath-houses, all vibrant with a warm The Transit of Venus 17 padding of sandy feet.
On the other hand, there were his nights spent among primitive stones. Charmian Thrale's own reclusive self, by now quite free of yearnings, merely cherished a few pure secrets—she had once pulled a potato from a boiling pot because it showed a living sprout; and had turned back, on her way to an imperative appointment, to look up a line of Meredith.
She did not choose to have many thoughts her husband could not divine, for fear she might come to despise him. Listening had been a large measure of her life: she listened closely —and, since people are accustomed to being half-heard, her attention troubled them, they felt the inadequacy of what they said. In this way she had a quieting effect on those about her, and stemmed gently the world's flow of unconsidered speech. Although she offered few opinions, her views were known in a way that is not true of persons who, continually passing judgment, keep none in reserve.
The girls' curved necks were intolerably exposed as they spooned their custard: you could practically feel the axe. Upright Mrs. Thrale could never be felled in the same way, at least not now. The young man and the girls remarked among themselves on the delayed season—"the late summer," as if it were already dead.
They were like travellers managing an unfamiliar tongue, speaking in infinitives. Everything had the threat and promise of meaning. Later on, there would be more and more memories, less and less memorable. It would take a bombshell, later, to clear the mental space for such a scene as this. Experience was banked up around the room, a huge wave about to break. While the girls were clearing the table, the Professor led the young man to the windows, saying, "Let me show you.
Ted Tice knew it was the road he had come. In the previous year Christian Thrale, who was then in his twenties, unexpectedly had an evening free from weekend work at a government office. In retrospect it seemed to have been an evening free, also, of himself. He did not often go alone to a concert or anything else of the cultural kind. On your own, you were at the mercy of your responses. Accompanied, on the other hand, you remained in control, made assertive sighs and imposed hypothetical requirements.
You could also deliver your opinion, seldom quite favourable, while walking home. As to pleasure, he was suspicious of anything that relieved his feelings. The concert, on that particular evening, was furthermore too easy to get into.
Yet, passing in light rain, he saw posters and bought a seat on the aisle. He was scarcely in place when he had to stand again to let two women into the row. He lifted the folded mackintosh, the hat, and damp umbrella he had dumped on the empty seat alongside; and the younger woman, having stood back for the elder, now sat there. He had noticed her large-eyed good looks at once when she glanced up saying Sorry.
But as the struggling out of coats went on, and the drawing off of stubborn gloves, he lost interest. It was the other woman he next became aware of. The older woman was small and dark and wore a red felt circlet on her head, trimmed with navy ribbon. Around her shoulders there was looped a swag of sharp little furs—the mouth of one fur fastened, peglike and with needle teeth, on the paw of the other.
In her lap a handbag was crammed squat, and she dried this with The Transit of Venus 19 rustling paper. That she was in some way related to the girl, though not of an age to be her mother, was evident from their manner together. It was hard to summarize, even in guesses, even in his mind, the relation of girl to woman. Until, as the musicians started to appear and more arrivals pushed along the rows, the phrase came to him: she is in her power. The older woman had been coaxed for an outing, in the desperation of an interminable Sunday.
That she expected nothing of the music was apparent from her turning this way and that, providing her own discordant tuning-up. I ask you. Wouldn't you think. They mean to use the war as an excuse forever. First you tell me I'm depressed, and then you don't have a solitary word to say for yourself. When she turned his way, the wide, high slope of the little woman's bright cheeks recalled the girl's.
Remind me to gargle when we get home.
Throughout the first work Christian was aware of the woman simmering there, a boiling turned low. The girl between them was impassive, hands lightly clasped, slim knees aligned under dark skirt. At the interval the little woman, murmuring to the girl, got up and went out to the ladies'. She was no sooner down the aisle than Christian spoke.
He had never done such a thing in life, but knew there was no time to lose. They got swiftly through some piffle about Sibelius, and by the time the duenna returned Christian had written a phone number and suggested Saturday.
All this, which should have seemed extraordinary to him, appeared inevitable and entirely right. He got to his feet, and Grace said, "Dora, this is Mr. Dora saw a sandy man, quite tall, who could easily present a threat. Christian had io Shirley Hazzard discovered they were half-sisters and from Australia.
When the concert was over, he put them in a cab. He did not, during that week, tell himself I must have been besotted, even though besotted was one of his words. He knew that something out of the ordinary had been set in motion. But did wonder if it would survive reunion with Grace, whose attraction could well decline at an address of furnished rooms. One would then be faced with the process of coming to one's senses.
To do him justice, Christian Thrale feared rather than hoped for this. On the Saturday he went to W. The stairs were freshly painted white and had a scarlet carpet. There was a glass jar of yellow flowers on a landing. It had not occurred to him, he himself might have brought.
As he went up he was shamed by a sense of adventure that delineated the reduced scale of his adventures. After the impetuous beginning, he would puzzle them by turning out staid and cautious. In a gilt mirror near the door he surprised himself, still young. Grace's beauty was a vindication. He had relied on it, and it did not let him down. She was calm, as before, and smiled. There were the gold flowers again, on a table.
Christian sat on a furnishedlooking settee. No, no difficulty at all finding the address and knew the area quite well, actually, from once having had a dentist nearby. A kettle whistling in a kitchenette was swiftly muzzled by, he assumed, Dora.
Caro brought in the tray. My sister. A place was cleared for cups and plates. Christian sat again, and Caro opposite, with Grace bent between them: Is that too strong, these are from Fortnum's. With a silver blade she laid open a quadrant of cake. A little furrow of concentration between her eyes was beguiling as the grooved brow of a kitten. On the sofa Christian was a man on a river-bank, not so much gazing at the other side as aware of a current into which he must plunge.
He saw Grace shining and rippling over afternoon stones. She leadeth me beside the still waters. Opposite, Caro's still waters ran deep. Unfortunately Dora has had to go to Wigmore Street to pick up her new glasses. Thank God. It was clear that Dora battened on the girls' occasions, might be absent from necessity but never from tact. As in the concert hall, it was evident they must make the most of the time before she returned, get things to a pitch where she could The Transit of Venus 21 not reverse them.
In relief at no Dora, Christian sat easy, had a second cup, and was pleased. Into the furnished staleness there came cool air from a window, and a scent of bath salts or cologne. Against the light, Caro's head and shoulders were remarkable. Once or twice he made her laugh. But when he leaned for biscuits felt her eyes on him as if. As if, for instance, she knew about the sense of adventure on the stairs.
He found these women uncommonly self-possessed for their situation. They seemed scarcely conscious of being Australians in a furnished flat. He would have liked them to be more impressed by his having come, and instead caught himself living up to what he thought might be their standards and hoping they would not guess the effort incurred.
Quickness came back to him like a neglected talent summoned in an emergency: as if he rose in trepidation to a platform and cleared his throat to sing.

We have conflicting understandings of the club cranium rule about the bonus roll.
So, everyone plays the activity, and whoever gets it first rolls the die, like they would after completing an activity. Is that in itself the bonus roll, or do they then get to roll one more time in addition as a bonus roll?
