Julien était debout devant le grand miroir de ma chambre, en train, d'ajuster le col de sa chemise jaune safran. Une julie couleur, selon moi, mais que j'aurais sans doute mieux appréciée si elle n'avait pas en à rivaliser avec une veste saphir et un pantalon fuschia.

Earlier, a man had asked if she would mind some company. She'd replied, No. Thank you. I'm enjoying my book. To which he'd said, That's okay; we don't have to talk.
