”There was something coming to her and she was waiting for it,fearfully.What was it? she did not know:it was too subtle and elusive to name.But she felt it,creeping out of the sky,reaching toward her through the sounds,the scents,the color that filled the air.”

”now her bosom rose and fell tumultuously.”

(The Story Of An Hour;Kate Chopin)
