But how to get a girl
? There was no girl
's home to which Louis could take me and where I might be introduced to girls
THE FLOWER GIRL
. Nah then, Freddy: look wh' y' gowin, deah.
While the boy stared the girl
looked upon him calmly.
Just then a girl
scuddled lightly around the corner, slipped on a patch of icy snow and fell plump upon the sidewalk.
"I wonder what it is," speculated Cecily, as the Story Girl
left the room.
Sikes's temper; for, as the girl
raised him up and led him to a chair, he muttered various curses on her awkwardnewss, and struck her.
He did not know how long he had slept when a sudden sound awoke him, and opening his eyes he saw a black girl
standing beside him.
He was about to call aloud in the hope that after all the girl
still lived when he saw her in a tree close beside that was occupied by the baboons, and now he saw that they were snarling and jabbering at her.
Here they exchanged a few words and while they were talking the girl
noticed that he who had halted them, as well as those whom she could see of his companions, appeared to be, if possible, of a lower mentality than her original captors.
But the people amongst whom the girl
had fallen had positively not a grain of moral delicacy.
Among them, like the "jocoso" of a Spanish play, full of wit and epigrammatic sallies, another girl
was watching the rest with a comprehensive glance, making them laugh, and tossing up her head, too lively and arch not to be pretty.
The head of the Patchwork Girl
was the most curious part of her.
