what did you take me for?

Posted May 30 2012 5:23am
     When that was over, Rose summoned Fergus to help her  chanel handbags  to gather up the fragments, and the knives, dishes, &c., and restore them to the baskets; and Mrs. Graham took her camp-stool and drawing materials; and having begged Miss Millward to take charge of her precious son, and strictly enjoined him not to wander from his new guardian's side, she left us and proceeded along the steep, stony hill, to a loftier, more precipitous eminence at some distance, whence a still finer prospect  chanel bags  was to be had, where she preferred taking her sketch, though some of the ladies told her it was a frightful place, and advised her not to attempt it.
     When she was gone, I felt as if there was to be no more fun - though it is difficult to say what she had contributed to the hilarity of the party. No jests, and little laughter, had escaped her lips; but her smile had  chanel bags outlet  animated my mirth; a keen observation or a cheerful word from her had insensibly sharpened my wits, and thrown an interest over all that was done and said by the rest. Even my conversation with Eliza had been enlivened by her presence, though I knew it not; and now that she was gone, Eliza's playful nonsense ceased to amuse me - nay, grew wearisome to my soul, and I grew weary of amusing  chanel bags  her: I felt myself drawn by an irresistible attraction to that distant point where the fair artist sat and plied her solitary task - and not long did I attempt to resist it: while my little neighbour was exchanging a few words with Miss Wilson, I rose and cannily slipped away. A few rapid strides, and a little active clambering, soon brought me to the place where she was seated - a narrow  uggs clearance  ledge of rock at the very verge of the cliff, which descended with a steep, precipitous slant, quite down to the rocky shore.
     She did not hear me coming: the falling of my shadow across her paper gave her an electric start; and she looked hastily round - any other lady of my acquaintance would have screamed under such a sudden alarm.
     'Oh! I didn't know it was you. - Why did you startle me  ugg boots on clearance  so?' said she, somewhat testily. 'I hate anybody to come upon me so unexpectedly.'
     'Why, what did you take me for?' said I: 'if I had known you were so nervous, I would have been more cautious; but - '
     'Well, never mind. What did you come for? are they all coming?'
     'No; this little ledge could scarcely contain them all.'
