“Carrie seems glad to see you, Oliver,” said Frank; “but you must not feel too much elated.佛山桑拿红场名店 It’s only on account of your relationship to Roland. She’s perfectly infatuated with that boy.”
Like most brothers, Frank liked to tease his sister.
“Roland!” repeated Carrie, tossing her head. “I hope I 佛山桑拿按摩兼职qq女 have better taste than to like him.”
“It’s all put on, Oliver. You mustn’t believe what she says.”
“Didn’t I see Roland walking with you yesterday?” asked Oliver, willing to join in the teasing.
“Because I couldn’t get rid of him,” retorted Carrie.
“He thinks you are over head and 佛山夜生活兼职mm ears in love with him,” said Frank.
“I don’t believe
he thinks anything of the kind. If he does, he is very much mistaken; that is all I can say.”
“Don’t tease your sister any more, Frank,” said Oliver. “I don’t believe she admires Roland any more than I do.”
“Thank you, Oliver. I am glad to have you on my side,” said the young lady graciously. 佛山桑拿论坛888″I shouldn’t mind if I never saw Roland Kenyon.”
“Stop your quarrelling, young people, and walk in to supper,” said Miss Pauline.
“Where is your father to-night, Frank?” asked Oliver, as they ranged 佛山桑拿一条龙多少钱 themselves round the neat supper table.

“I will, most learned doctor.”

supper he was accustomed to take at home, and his thoughts found utterance.
“I wish I had as pleasant a home as you, Frank.”
“You had better come and live with us, Oliver.”
“I should like to.”
“Suppose you propose it to Mr. Kenyon. I don’t believe he prizes your society very much.”
“Nor I. He wouldn’t 佛山夜生活luntan mind being rid of me, but Roland would probably object to my coming here.”
“I didn’t think of that.”
“I should like to have you with us, Oliver,” said Miss Pauline. “You would be company for Frank, and could help keep him straight.”
“As if I needed it, Aunt Pauline! 佛山桑拿报告 All the same, I should enjoy having Oliver here, and so would Carrie.”
“Yes, I should,” said the young lady unhesitatingly.
Oliver was well pleased, and expressed his satisfaction.
After supper they adjourned to the parlor, and presently Carrie sat down to the piano and played and sang some popular songs, Frank and Oliver joining in the singing.
While they were thus engaged a ring was heard at the door-bell.

“Good-evening, 佛山桑拿哪里最好 Miss Carrie,” he said, a little awkwardly.
“Good-evening, Mr. Kenyon,” said the young lady distantly. “Will you be seated?”

“Good-evening. May I introduce you to Mr. Oliver Conrad?”
“You here?” said Roland, surprised.

“I am here,” said Oliver briefly.
“We were singing as you entered, Roland,” said Frank mischievously. “Won’t you favor us with a melody?”
“I don’t sing,” said Roland stiffly.
“Indeed! Oliver is quite a singer.”
