1 THE PUBLIC HOLIDAY

 

Megan’s garden was coming on spectacularly well as a result of the constant care and attention she showered upon it. She and Jane liked to take advantage of the privacy provided by the honeysuckle, jasmine, sweet peas and passion flower by sunbathing in their swimming costumes on the grass. This felt perfectly natural to Jane who didn’t mind whether anyone saw her or not, but it was a completely new experience to Megan. She thought they were being very daring not sunbathing at the seaside, where she would have felt much less inhibited.

This was a result of her mother’s strict moral code. Suzanne had no objection to sunbathing and swimming in public places like the beach or municipal pool, but considered it overly exhibitionist to do the same in the privacy of one’s own back garden. However, what annoyed Megan the most was that she could see what her mother meant, although she didn’t want to and certainly didn’t agree with her. She both envied her friend’s freedom and wondered whether it was a good thing at one and the same time

She found it perplexing and frustrating. Megan was just about to open her eyes and prop herself up on one elbow to discuss the matter with Jane, when Jane remarked:

“You never seem to suffer from spots, do you? What’s your secret?” She opened her eyes and turned to her right to find Jane studying her face from less than a foot away. “Your skin is beautiful, there’s not a mark on it you weren’t born with, whereas I get spots all the time. Come on, what’s your secret?”

“No secret. I think I do what every other girl does. I do all that stuff we all talk about: creams, antiseptic alcohol washes, every morning and every night. If you do all that as well, then I don’t know why you get them and I don’t.”
