MOON-FACE

John Claverhouse was a moon-faced man. You know the kind, cheek-bones wide
apart, chin and forehead melting into the cheeks to complete the perfect
round, and the nose, broad and pudgy, equidistant from the circumference,
flattened against the very centre of the face like a dough-ball upon the
ceiling. Perhaps that is why I hated him, for truly he had become an offense
to my eyes, and I believed the earth to be cumbered with his presence. Perhaps
my mother may have been superstitious of the moon and looked upon it over the
wrong shoulder at the wrong time.
