4. Sara started toward her. She looked as if she were going to box her ears. Perhaps she was. Her trick of pretending things was the joy of her life. She never spoke of it to girls she was not fond of. Her new "pretend" about being a princess was very near to her heart, and she was shy and sensitive about it. She had meant it to be rather a secret, and here was Lavinia deriding it before nearly all the school. She felt the blood rush up into her face and tingle in her ears. She only just saved herself. If you were a princess, you did not fly into rages. Her hand dropped, and she stood quite still a moment. When she spoke it was in a quiet, steady voice; she held her head up, and everybody listened to her.
6. No sooner did she heare this answer, but she returned home to herowne house, which she decked in most sumptuous maner, and also madeready a costly Supper, expecting the arrivall of Salabetto: who whenthe darke night was indifferently well entred, went thither, and waswelcommed with wonderfull kindnesse, wanting no costly Wines andDelicates all the Supper while. Being afterward conducted into agoodly Chamber, he smelt there admirable sweete senting savours,such as might well beseeme a Princes Pallace. He beheld a mostcostly Bed, and very rich furniture round about the roome: whichwhen he had duly considered to himself, he was constantly perswaded,that she was a Lady of infinit wealth. And although he had hearddivers flying reports concerning her life, yet hee would not crediteany thing amisse of her, for albeit she might (perhappes) beguile someother; yet shee affected him (he thought) in better manner, and nosuch misfortune could happen to him.
3. When all was ready, the Sultan appeared, and took his place on a platform, surrounded by the chief nobles and officers of his court. When they were seated, the Princess of Bengal was seen leaving the palace, accompanied by the ladies who had been assigned to her by the Sultan. She slowly approached the enchanted horse, and with the help of her ladies, she mounted on its back. Directly she was in the saddle, with her feet in the stirrups and the bridle in her hand, the physician placed around the horse some large braziers full of burning coals, into each of which he threw a perfume composed of all sorts of delicious scents. Then he crossed his hands over his breast, and with lowered eyes walked three times round the horse, muttering the while certain words. Soon there arose from the burning braziers a thick smoke which almost concealed both the horse and princess, and this was the moment for which he had been waiting. Springing lightly up behind the lady, he leaned forward and turned the peg, and as the horse darted up into the air, he cried aloud so that his words were heard by all present, "Sultan of Cashmere, when you wish to marry princesses who have sought your protection, learn first to gain their consent."
4. At the word treasure, Aladdin forgot his fears, and grasped the ring as he was told, saying the names of his father and grandfather. The stone came up quite easily and some steps appeared.
2. "My wife escaped!" cried Bonacieux. "Oh, unfortunate creature!Monsieur, if she has escaped, it is not my fault, I swear.""What business had you, then, to go into the chamber of MonsieurD'Artagnan, your neighbor, with whom you had a long conferenceduring the day?"
3. Cling to these ancient ribs of granite rock, Else to yon depths profound it youwill hurl. A murky vapour thickens night. Hark! Through the woods thetempests roar! The owlets flit in wild affright. Hark! Splinter'd are the columnsthat upbore The leafy palace, green for aye: The shivered branches whirr andsigh, Yawn the huge trunks with mighty groan. The roots upriven, creak andmoan! In fearful and entangled fall, One crashing ruin whelms them all, Whilethrough the desolate abyss, Sweeping the wreck - strewn precipice, Theraging storm - blasts howl and hiss! Aloft strange voices dost thou hear?Distant now and now more near? Hark! the mountain ridge along, Streametha raving magic - song!
5. "I was thinking," she answered.
1. Carrie soon found that while this drilling had some slightresemblance to the rehearsals as conducted at Avery Hall, theattitude of the manager was much more pronounced. She hadmarvelled at the insistence and superior airs of Mr. Millice, butthe individual conducting here had the same insistence, coupledwith almost brutal roughness. As the drilling proceeded, heseemed to wax exceedingly wroth over trifles, and to increase hislung power in proportion. It was very evident that he had agreat contempt for any assumption of dignity or innocence on thepart of these young women.
2. Athos and he exchanged some words in a low voice, then the tall man madea sign to the Musketeer that he might come in. Athos immediatelyprofited by the permission, and the door was closed behind him.The man whom Athos had come so far to seek, and whom he had found withso much trouble, introduced him into his laboratory, where he wasengaged in fastening together with iron wire the dry bones of askeleton.

6. `Why, look at you all!' bawled this figure, addressing the inn servants. `Why don't you go and fetch things, instead of standing there staring at me? I am not so much to look at, am I? Why don't you go and fetch things? I'll let you know, if you don't bring smelling-salts, cold water, and vinegar, quick, I will.'
