One day when Mike had a dinner with a friend and F. should also come, she didn't and nobody knew where she could be. After a while they found her with her horse at the hills. His friend thought she might be dead.
F. was dead, nobody knew how it came until some people told they saw a gypsy woman speaking to her and told bad things. That might be Mrs. Lee.

He wanted to be alone and write about it… He thought about Fenella, she was so sweet… It was an endless night…
