"But I am a fair man, I hope, even to myself, and the cooler, less-tortured judgment of the subsequent years has practically assured me that, for types as diametrically opposed as ours, such a thing as mutual happiness never could have existed." Mechanically he bent down and smoothed a tickly lock of hair away from the little girl's eyelids.
But the girls remembered a governess they had once witnessed whose hair was brief as any boy's, so they put a large hat, with a very tight elastic behind, on to Oswald's head, just as it was, and then with a tickly, pussyish, featherish thing round his neck, hanging wobblily down in long ends, he looked more young-lady-like than he will ever feel. Some courage was needed for the start next day.
Valerie doesn't dream what it is, and while she's talking, keeps trying to brush off the tickly thing. Come and see her!" Patricia did not stir. She longed to see the fun, but she felt rather abashed to come out from her corner. The sound of a violin being tuned proved too tempting, however, and she joined Arabella in the doorway.
He'd have called it pride, but the nixycomlogical name for it is laziness. No woman don't like to run after a man. 'Let him come back, hisself, says the girl; and I'll be bound she tells the boy with the pay ore to trot; and then spends her time watching out the window for the man with the empty pocket-book and the tickly moustache.
