“The End of Exams”

“It was about two o’clock in the afternoon on the day after Skylar’s last final examination. A cylinder of yellow sunlight passed through the narrow casement window in the sophomore’s bedroom, inflaming a golden aureole around Artus’ head. The rectangular lights of the mullioned window had been refashioned, all luminous, stretched and laid flat on the wooden floor of the room, as if for a game of devic hopscotch. He had left the door to the balcony open and through it came, in irregular puffs, the thickly pungent perfume of the hyacinth, which dangled in profusion from the walls of the tower. Cushiony and barely warm breezes, which touched one’s cheeks like a favorite pillow and filled not only one’s lungs but one’s entire body with refreshment, carried these sprays of scent, like spritzes from nature’s great atomizer.”
