And he wastoo far away to detect the character of the handwriting.
He was determinedthat, girl or no girl, he would not have one who was not pretty. Once she had passed,he dropped behind her, allowing her to precede him by half a block.
I need aroom for some one who is sick and hasnt much money, but its notso easy to find either. Oh, sure, I would like some roses, she replied, turning into theplace. So I had todo something about one of you.
Heknew he was bluffing and that I did, too. But Clyde for some reason, intuition perhaps, had thethought that it might be from Esta. At the sametime, the natural coquetry of her nature would not permit her torelinquish him.
I wonderedwhy he didnt bring you around here before.
He had heard Hegglund say that women likedfellows who did things for them. She was paring potatoes and looked at him curiously.
Yet, so quickly had she come and gonein the mass of people that he had not been able to make sure.
The uncalculated honesty of it flattered her not a little. So I had todo something about one of you. I could spend a lot more on you than they could. Only, now he thought as hesaw her, she looked older.
My father thinks Im crazy, but moren that would do meharm. She had the same height, and shewas moving along as Esta used to walk. Clyde began to feel and look crushed at once.
Gee, I tell you I had a swift week of it last week. Theres goin to be mostly dancing atKitties.
I could just barely see the customers moving around. She had, as he hadnoticed of late, taken to going out regularly mornings andafternoons or evenings.
An hedid all sorts of funny stuff with the dishes and spoons.
When they werent,she didnt have anything more to do with them. She did not answer him and he went to his room to changehis clothes.
Thethought of being content with one not so attractive almostnauseated him. It was quite noticeable, and yet nothing was said. At the same time he was made intensely curious by thisevasive gesture. She finallycompromised on that with celery and cauliflower.
She looked at Clyde approvingly and interestedly enough. Why should his mother not wish him to see hercarrying a bag anywhere?
