er. Mr. McIntyre’s little Scotch eyes blazed and the class sobered instantly. 杭州洗浴小姐 But the instructor’s voice was surprisingly gentle as he replied:
“Ah, an excellent choice, sir, an excellent choice. I ken ye know your own requirements, and I’ll see what 杭州高端资源微信群 we can do for ye. (Mr. McIntyre was liable to fall
back into Scotch brogue on occasions, occasions which the boys who knew him well were prone to dread.) Ay, ay, manners are what ye need, doubtless.”
Mr. McIntyre smiled gently and took up his book again. Some one ventured to laugh nervously, but the look which he received killed his mirth instantly. Proceedings were resumed, and for the rest of the half-hour Kilts took no notice of Gerald. When class was over Gerald hurried out of the room and over to Clarke with blazing eyes, half beside himself 杭州不正规养生按摩推荐 with anger. Dan happened to be in the room, and to him Gerald poured forth his tale. But if he expected sympathy or indignation, he was doomed to disappointment. Dan heard the story calmly.
“Well, I guess it’s you for the Office, Gerald,” he said with a frown. “What made you be 杭州品茶工作室 such an ass as to say that to Kilts? Don’t you know he’s got a temper like a ginger-jar?”
Gerald stared in amazement.
“But—but see what he said to me!” he gasped. “Do you think I’m going to sit quiet and take that, Dan? I guess not! What right had he to insult me before the whole class? He—he’s nothing but a Scotch beggar, anyway!”
“He’s one of the best mathematicians in the country,” replied Dan quietly, “and no matter what else he is, he’s your teacher and you ought to treat him politely. If he was impolite to you, that’s no reason for you to answer back, Gerald.”
“Well, I did it!” cried Gerald hotly. “And I’ll do it again if he ever says things 杭州洗浴中心 like that to me.”
“Maybe you won’t have a chance,” replied Dan dryly. “You’d better wait until you’ve seen Collins. You’ve got yourself into a nasty hole, Gerald, and you might 彩蝶杭州按摩养生会所 as well realize it. Fellows have been suspended here for less than what you’ve done.”
“Let them suspend me, then,” said Gerald hotly. “I don’t care what they do! I’m sick and tired of this place, anyway. Every 杭州西湖足浴店可啪 one’s down on me, the teachers and every one else! And you don’t care, either. You’re just like Loring and Dyer and those fellows. I hope they send me home! I’d rather be there than here!”
“And how about your father?” asked Dan gently. “Think he’d be pleased, Gerald? Now, look here!” Dan laid a hand kindly
on the boy’s shoulder. “Don’t make any more of a mess of it, Gerald. You were wrong in answering back, and you must see that. Why, it’s sort of as though you were in the army, Gerald. Kilts is your superior officer, you see, and it’s your place to take what he says and keep your mouth closed. And you know as well as I do that you haven’t been 杭州桑拿spa生活馆 pegging at algebra lately the way you ought to. You’ve got it into your head that you can’t do it, and now you don’t try. And Kilts sees that and doesn’t like it. He
