"Eight lamps sat across the ornate desk, casting a yellow-orange glow in the shadowed recess of the long room. When in full operation, each bulb threw light upon the face of a hotel staff stationed and waiting to welcome arriving guests. Bell boys with short jackets and tiny hats buckled beneath their chins had been hired to load the large state-of-the-art freight elevator with luggage dollies destined for the floors above."

The Pier. Ostend, Belgium. 1895. "Chloe felt faint. Her face tingled with cold sparks. She sat down on a footstool. She was going to Ostend. To see her grandmother. And they were leaving for the city tonight. This very evening. And she would be going with Simon. This man. Her mind flashed with the image of his hands separating her thighs. Her husband. 'I didn’t have a chance to tell you. I would like to take you home.'" (Swann Bay, GiuliaTorre.com, 2015).
