At any rate, she was conscious of no anger against him; but rather of a deep pity for one condemned to suffer as she had suffered. But in the case of Katharine it was different; she was indignant with Katharine. "There's always work," she said, a little aggressively. Ralph moved directly. "Do you want to be working now?" he asked. "No, no. It's Sunday," she replied. "I was thinking of Katharine.
"And I made it up this evening," I said, a little less aggressively, "that I would join it if the devil himself were already in it, as I half suspect he is." "I like that," Brande said gravely. "That is the spirit I want in the man who joins me." To which I replied: "What under the sun is the object of this Society of yours?"
She melted, visibly, like a fragment left on the curb by the iceman, whenever Paula turned the current on.
