Definition
something mysterious that seems unexplainable
  • He studied the paper unhappily, sharply remembering his younger son's face, arrogant and sullen, handsome as his mother's face (except for those ears, long as an elephant's ears, and red)—quick to sneer, quick to smile, as hers was, a face as delicate as his own was blunt: his own, or Will's, or his daughter Mary Lou's—the face of Luke Hodge in whom all that was subtly wrong, for obscure reasons contemptible, in W. B. Hodge, Attorney at Law, came into enigmatic focus.
