1905. Rebecca Mary took another stitch. Then another. Ninety-seven, ninety-eight, she counted aloud, her little pointed face gravely intent. She waited the briefest possible space before she took ninety-nine. It was getting very close to the Time now. At the hundred an' oneth, Rebecca Mary whispered. It's almost it. Her breath came quicker under her tight little dress. Between her thin, light eyebrows a crease deepened anxiously.
Rebecca Mary had evolved the name from her inner consciousness and her intense gratitude to Aunt Olivia and the minister's wife. She had put Aunt Olivia first with instinctive loyalty, though in the secret little closet of her soul she had longed to call the beautiful being Felicia, intact and sweet.
