licate insight was making, not her face only, but her heart, the subject of its deep regard. The moment before, she did not know that there was anything in either which she cared to hide. Now, as if the existence of some secret were suddenly suggested to her by the fear of another’s perception of it, she let her eyes fall, and a deep flush 杭州桑拿按摩酒店 overspread her features.
Diva turned away with a sigh. She felt scarcely less lonely than she had seen herself in the vision of the preceding evening, when Coralie had seemed to be passing swiftly beyond her reach and ken, in a chariot of flame.
Nor was her sadness wholly for 杭州保健会所 herself. She was gifted with a singular clearness of intuition, in regard to the relations of others; and Coralie’s face affected her much as it would have done to find a rose suddenly budding out on a sunny winter’s day, and mistaking it for the beginning of summer. Still, as is often the case with persons thus endowed, she did not fully trust her own intuitions, for the reason that they could give no clear account of themselves to her intellect. She now told herself, therefore, that her impressions were doubtless wrong, inasmuch as they were destitute of solid 杭州丝袜同好 basis; she was even glad to believe so, quickly losing the thought of herself in that of her friend. Or it might be that she was seized with a diviner selfishness,—the certainty that, if any winter’s night of frost and dusk were in store for Coralie, she herself must needs 杭州洗浴论坛 partake largely, through sympathy, of its chill and gloom.
As the friends stood thus silent, each busy with her own impressions (for they were of much too thin a consistency to be called thoughts), certain sounds from below, coming up to the window, attracted their notice.

“That will do, thank you. I shall quite enjoy my ride through the valley, this lovely morning. Present my adieux to Miss Coralie; I trust that her night’s rest has 杭州足浴小姐 obliterated every trace of her last evening’s experience. Good-bye.”
“Why, that is Mr. Arling!” exclaimed Coralie, in sudden consternation. “What can have happened to take him away so suddenly?”
“I heard him telling your father, last night,” answered Diva, calmly, “that he would 杭州男士美容会所 be forced to return to town early this morning on business of importance.”
“And he did not bid me good-bye!” murmured Coralie, discontentedly. “Besides, I have not half thanked him for saving me from those dreadful flames,”—and she shuddered at the recollection. “Oh, I must speak to him, before he goes.”
She leaned out of the window, apparently with the intention of calling to him, but it was too late; he was already trotting down the avenue, followed by the groom who was to bring back the horse. She looked after him with a wistful gaze, and her eyes 杭州夜生活网推油 filled with tears.
Diva watched her thoughtfully,—intent, it would seem, upon some deeper and more perplexing
phase of the matter than that immediately presented to her. Finally, she said, as if struck by a sudden thought:—
