That point with regard to Evelyn Percival must be settled. Perhaps your communication can keep, Marshall."She stood wavering with her own conscience. Caspar was nervous, but he was not vicious.

"Thanks!" said Janet calmly.This morning Bridget had been practically "sent to Coventry." Even Dorothy was cold in her manner to her. The small children who had hung upon her words and followed her with delight the evening before, were now too frightened at the consequences of their own daring to come near her. Janet, Ruth, and Olive had shown their disapproval by marked avoidance and covert sneers. Bridget had done a very naughty act, and the school thought it well to show its displeasure.
Bridget stood by the window, but she heard none of these soothing sounds. Her spoilt, childish heart was in the most open state of rebellion and revolt.

They were both undressing when she entered the room this evening, but the moment she appeared they rushed to her and began an eager torrent of words.
