    Summary

    I've always liked the idea that the ladies got a little closer in the short time they spend together. If they had just a few more days perhaps between 'oh yes let's pretend we're distant cousins' and 'oh god why house why' they might've had a chance to get down to something a little more lovely and delightful. Hence a moment between the moments, where an afternoon nap could start pleasantly enough and become... well anything. Except this is still after all, Hill House.

    If only, Eleanor thinks, Theo could hear the industrious spiders in the attic, the mildew creeping glacially, but deliberately beneath the floorboards, the ants gorging themselves on the food left from dinner.

    A great while ago the world begun,
    With hey, ho, the wind and the rain,
    But that’s all one, our play is done,
    And we’ll strive to please you every day.
