Beatrice was used to having men look at her because she was young and beautiful. To some extent she appreciated it, but sometimes men went too far; they stare intensely for a long time and occasionally followed her. This could be very unpleasant, especially when it happened late in the evening in deserted streets. As a consequence, she tried to avoid going out alone after dark. But on those evenings, when she worked late and then discovered there was no food at home, she had to go out and buy something from the food shop which was still open or, if it was very late, she had to go to the local restaurant, which was open until one o'clock.
