‘Narrated Saud: The Prophet said, "If you hear of an outbreak of plague in a land, do not enter it: but if the plague breaks out in a place while you are in it, do not leave that place." ‘

In a moment Nancy appeared at the window.

But what a Nancy! 'A face like a pumpkin,' the doctor had said, but no one had really believed him. But now, 'Pumpkin' seemed to say less than the truth. It said nothing about colour.
