Excerpt from Miles Tremenhere, Vol. 1 of 2

The voice below continued its summons, but in the distance; the caller evidently was seeking through the garden.

I wonder when my cousin Dora will come, said the Minnie of Sylvia's seeking again. And I wonder if she is very handsome; they say so -though only three years older than myself, I was always afraid of her, even as a child. She was so tall and commanding, though but a girl of fifteen then - now she's twenty; and she looked so stern, with her proud curling lip which never smiled; even at play, her play was queenly and condescending. I see her now, when she was at her gymnastic exercises; how graceful she looked inging upwards the hoop, which always returned unerringly to the stick, as if it durst not disobey her will. Mine often rebelled, and fell yards of; and, whilst I put myself in a fever to catch it, she was calm and pale, and if she involuntarily sprang up wards to meet it, with what a calm grace she lighted on the toe of one of her tiny feet with the obedient toy in her keeping! There was pride even in that action, for her foot seemed to disdain the earth. It was the only thing I disliked in Dora, her pride as a child; it awed me. I h0pe it will not do so now. I want to love her. We cannot love where we fear, and I hope she will love me whenever she comes; and yet I feel so nervous at the thought of seeing her, though Here another voice arose on the ear; this, too, came from the garden.
