The Secret Garden - Chapter V - THE CRY IN THE CORRIDOR
CHAPTER V - THE CRY IN THE CORRIDORAt first each day which passed by for Mary Lennox was exactly like the others. Every morning she awoke in her tapestried room and found Martha kneeling upon the hearth building her fire; every morning she ate her breakfast in the nursery which had nothing amusing in it; and after each breakfast she gazed out of the window across to the huge moor which seemed to spread out on all sides and climb up to the sky, and after she had stared for a while she realized that...

The Celtic Twilight - AN ENDURING HEART
AN ENDURING HEARTOne day a friend of mine was making a sketch of my Knight of the Sheep. The old man's daughter was sitting by, and, when the conversation drifted to love and lovemaking, she said, "Oh, father, tell him about your love affair." The old man took his pipe out of his mouth, and said, "Nobody ever marries the woman he loves," and then, with a chuckle, "There were fifteen of them I liked better than the woman I married," and he repeated many women's names. He went on to tell how when he... Long Stories - Post by : mahler21 - Author : William Butler Yeats - Read : 3083

The History Of The Next French Revolution - Chapter VI. THE ENGLISH UNDER JENKINS
But the Prince had not calculated that there was a line of British infantry behind the routed Irish Brigade. Borne on with the hurry of the melee, flushed with triumph, puffing and blowing with running, and forgetting, in the intoxication of victory, the trifling bayonet-pricks which had impelled them to the charge, the conquering National Guardsmen found themselves suddenly in presence of Jenkins's Foot.They halted all in a huddle, like a flock of sheep."UP, FOOT, AND AT THEM!" were the memorable...

Until the enemy had retired altogether from before the place, Major Pendennis was resolved to keep his garrison in Fairoaks. He did not appear to watch Pen's behaviour or to put any restraint on his nephew's actions, but he managed nevertheless to keep the lad constantly under his eye or those of his agents, and young Arthur's comings and goings were quite well known to his vigilant guardian.I suppose there is scarcely any man who reads this or any other novel but has been baulked in love some time...

Lady Dennisford had failed. I saw it in her face as soon as I entered the room, and her first few words confirmed it."It's no use, Jim," she declared. "I've done my best, but there isn't a soul who will listen to me.""Good God!" I murmured, and sat down on the sofa."There is not a single man in the Cabinet of the slightest influence," she continued, "who will take this affair seriously. Lord Esherville assured me solemnly that the whole affair was absurd and impossible. Polloch declares that we have... Long Stories - Post by : johntin - Author : E. Phillips Oppenheim - Read : 672

Certainly an HeirloomThe burden of his position was so heavy on Lord Fawn's mind that, on the Monday morning after leaving Fawn Court, he was hardly as true to the affairs of India as he himself would have wished. He was resolved to do what was right,--if only he could find out what would be the right thing in his present difficulty. Not to break his word, not to be unjust, not to deviate by a hair's breadth from that line of conduct which would be described as "honourable"...

CHAPTER VI. GREAT-AUNT ELIZA'S VISITIt was a diamond winter day in February--clear, cold, hard, brilliant. The sharp blue sky shone, the white fields and hills glittered, the fringe of icicles around the eaves of Uncle Alec's house sparkled. Keen was the frost and crisp the snow over our world; and we young fry of the King households were all agog to enjoy life--for was it not Saturday, and were we not left all alone to keep house? Aunt Janet and Aunt Olivia had had their last big "kill" of market... Long Stories - Post by : bohlken - Author : Lucy Maud Montgomery - Read : 592

CHAPTER XXV. THE LOVE STORY OF THE AWKWARD MAN(Written by the Story Girl) Jasper Dale lived alone in the old homestead which he had named Golden Milestone. In Carlisle this giving one's farm a name was looked upon as a piece of affectation; but if a place must be named why not give it a sensible name with some meaning to it? Why Golden Milestone, when Pinewood or Hillslope or, if you wanted to be very fanciful, Ivy Lodge, might be had for the taking? He had lived alone at Golden Milestone since his...

The Mystery Of Metropolisville - Chapter 6. Little Katy's Lover
CHAPTER VI. LITTLE KATY'S LOVERKaty was fifteen and a half, according to the family Bible. Katy was a woman grown in the depth and tenderness of her feeling. But Katy wasn't twelve years of age, if measured by the development of her discretionary powers. The phenomenon of a girl in intellect with a woman's passion is not an uncommon one. Such girls are always attractive--feeling in woman goes for so much more than thought. And such a girl-woman as Kate has a twofold hold on other people--she is loved...

She was a large, stout woman with a face made very red and rough from constant exposure to the weather. She did not live in London, but worked as housekeeper on a farm down in Kent. This woman was not the least like Mrs. D'Albert, who was pale, and rather refined in her expression. Aunt Lydia had never... Long Stories - Post by : jensrsa - Author : L. T. Meade - Read : 2217

What can it mean?" "Don't be alarmed about it," said Mr. Birtwell, trying to speak in an assuring voice. "He must have gone home with a friend. It will...
