ng the grippe in one eye. I’ve physicked 杭州龙凤网新地址 her with Bile Beans and Perry Davis, and I’ve sent for some Antikamnia. If she’s not better by luncheon I’ll send for the doctor.”
She was not down by luncheon. After that meal, Charles, strolling across the hall to the[Pg 240] billiard-room, felt something pluck at his sleeve. It was Miss Morgan.
“I want to speak to you alone for a minute,” said she. “Come into the garden; there’s no one there.”
He followed her, much wondering, and they passed down 杭州养生会所 a shady path till they lost sight of the house.
“Pamela’s worried,” said Lulu, “and I want to talk to you about her——”
“Why, what can be——”
“We’ve been sitting up all night, she and I, and we’ve been discussing things, you ‘specially.”
“Now, don’t you be mad, for Pamela’s vury fond of you, and I like you, for you’re a right good sort; but, see here, Pamela thinks she’s 杭州足疗一条街 made a mistake.”
A queer new feeling entered Mr Bevan’s mind, peeped round and passed through it, so to speak—a feeling of relief—or more strictly speaking, release.
“She thinks you have both made a mistake, and—you know——”
“The fact is, she doesn’t want to marry me; why not say it at once? or, rather, why doesn’t she say so to me frankly, instead of deputing another person to do so?”
“There’s a letter,” said Miss Morgan, 杭州洗浴会所双飞服务 producing one from her pocket. “She wrote it and told me to give it to you; it’s eight pages long, and all sorts of things in it—she’s very fond of you—keep it and read it. But I tell you one line that’s in it, she says she will always feel as a sister to you, or be a sister to you, or words to that effect—that’s fatal—once a girl says that she’s said the last word.”
“I don’t think she ever cared for me, really,” said Mr Bevan—”let us sit down on this seat—no, 杭州洗浴按摩会所 I don’t think she really ever cared for me.”
“What made you two get engaged”
“Why should we not?”
“Because you’re too much alike; you are both rich, and both steady and well-balanced, you know, and that sort of thing. Likes ought never to get married. Dear—dear—dear—what a pity——”
“I was only thinking of all the love-making there’s wasted in the world. Now I know so[Pg 杭州丝袜论坛 242] many girls who would suit you to a T. I’ll tell you of one, if you like——”
“Thank you, I—um——”
“I was thinking of Fanny Lambert,” said Miss Morgan in a dreamy voice. “The girl I told you of yesterday——”
Now, Mr Bevan was the last man in the world—as I daresay you perceive—to discuss his feelings with any one. But Miss Morgan had a patent method of her own for extracting confidences, of making people talk out, as she would have expressed it 杭州丝袜足交 herself.
“I said to you yesterday that I had never met Miss Lambert: I had reasons connected with some law business for saying so—as a matter of fact, I have met her—once.”
“Oh, that’s quite enough. If you’ve met Fanny Lambert once,
you have met her for ever. Does she like you?—I don’t ask you do you like her, for, of course, you do.”
