ow, who lifted a lovely, 杭州桑拿水疗会所爽记 blushing face as Castalia entered the room, and stammered out, in evident embarrassment, that Mrs. Errington would be there in a few minutes, and, meanwhile, would not the lady take a seat?
“I am Mrs. Ancram Errington,” said Castalia, looking curiously at the girl.
“Yes; I know. I—I saw you at Dr. 杭州养生保健 Bodkin’s. I am spending the day with Mrs. Errington. She is very kind to me.”
Algernon’s wife seated herself in the easy-chair, and leisurely surveyed the young woman before her. Her first thought was, “How well she’s dressed!” her second, “She seems very bashful and timid; quite afraid of me!” And this second thought 杭州洗浴按摩体验 was not displeasing to Mrs. Algernon; for, in general, she had not been treated by the “provincial bumpkins,” as she called them, with all the deference and submission due to her rank.
The girl’s hands were nervously 滨江哪里足浴是荤的 occupied with some needlework. The flush had faded from her face, and left it delicately pale, except a faint rose-tint in the cheeks. Her shining brown hair waved in soft curls on to her neck. Mrs. Algernon sat looking at her, and critically observing the becoming hue of her green silk gown, the taste
and 杭州洗浴按摩全套哪里好 richness of a gold brooch at her throat, the whiteness of the shapely hand that was tremulously plying the needle. All at once a guess came into her mind, and she asked, suddenly:

Rhoda was so alarmed at the pitch of agitation to which she was brought by this speech, that she made a violent effort to control it, and answered with, more 杭州油压爽记 calmness than she had hitherto displayed:

“Oh, Mrs. Errington brings all sorts of tiresome people to see me; she may as well bring a nice person for once in a way.”
Castalia was meaning to be 杭州男士养生spa very gracious.
“Yes; I mean—but then—my father might not like me to come and see you,” blurted out Rhoda, with a sort of quiet desperation.
Mrs. Algernon opened her eyes very wide.
“Why, for goodness’ sake? Oh, he had some 杭州桑拿怎么样 quarrel or other with Mrs. Errington, hadn’t he? Never mind, that must be all forgotten, or he wouldn’t let you come here. I believe the truth is, that Mrs. Errington meant slyly to keep you to herself, and I shan’t stand that.”
Indeed, Castalia more than half believed this to be the case. And, partly from 杭州夜生活桑拿网 a sheer spirit of opposition to her mother-in-law—partly from the suspicious jealousy of her nature, that led her to do those things which she fancied others cunningly wished to prevent her from doing—she began to think she would patronise Rhoda and enlist her into her own faction. Besides, Rhoda was sweet-voiced, 杭州足浴名店 submissive, humble. Certainly, she would be a pleasanter sort of pet and tame animal to encourage about the house than Rose McDougall, who, with all her devotion, claimed a quid pro quo for her ser
