Manchester United Official Kit insolence which carried her through. He needn t think she was in love with him, because she wasn t. She hated him sometimes, and she longed to humble him but she found herself singularly powerless she did not know which way to handle him. She began to be a little nervous with him. Once or twice she cried. Once or twice she set herself to be particularly nice to him but when she took his arm while they walked along the front at night he made some excuse in a while to release himself, as though it were unpleasant for him to be touched by her. She could not make it out. The only hold she had over him was through the baby, of whom he seemed to grow fonder and fonder she could make bayern munich kit url 2015 him white with anger by giving the child a slap or a push and the only time the old, tender smile came back into his eyes was when she stood with the baby in her arms. She noticed it when she was being photographed like that by a man on the beach, and afterwards she often stood in the same way for Philip to look at her. When they got back to London Mildred began looking for the work she had asserted was so easy to manchester united official kit find she wanted now to be independent of Philip and she thought of the satisfaction with which she would announce to him that she was going into rooms and would take the child with her. But her heart failed her when she came into closer contact with the possibility. She had grown unused to the long hours, she manchester united official kit did not want to be at the beck and call of a manageress, and her dignity revolted at the thought of wearing once more a uniform. She had made out to such of the neighbours as she knew that they were comfortably off it would be a come down if they heard that she had to go out and work. Her natural indolence asserted itself. She did not want to leave Philip, and so long as he was willing to provide for her, she did not see why she should. There was no money to throw away, but she got her board and lodging, and he might get better off. His uncle was an old man and might die any day, he would come into a little then, and even as things were, it was better than slaving from morning till night for a few shillings a week. Her efforts relaxed she kept on reading the advertisement columns of the daily paper merely to show that she wanted to do something if anything that was worth her while presented itself. But panic seized her, and she was afraid that Philip would grow tired of supporting her. She had no hold over him at all now, and.o. was in a little street off Chancery Lane, and he had to ask his way two or three times. He felt that people were staring at him a great deal, and once he took off his hat to see whether by chance the label had been left on. When he arrived he knocked at the door but no one answered, and looking at his watch he found it was barely half manchester united official kit past nine he supposed he was too early. He went away and ten minutes later returned to find an office boy, with a long nose, pimply face, and a Scotch accent, opening the door. Philip asked for Mr. Herbert Carter. He had not come yet. When will he be here Between ten and half past. I d better wait, said Philip. What are you wanting asked the office boy. Philip was nervous, but tried to hide the fact by a jocose manner. Well, I m going to work here if you have no objection. Oh, you manchester united official kit re the new articled clerk You d better come in. Mr. Goodworthy ll be here in a while. Philip walked in, and as he did so saw the office boy he was about the same age as Philip and called himself a junior clerk look at his foot. He flushed and, sitting down, hid it behind the other. He looked round the room. It was dark and very dingy. It was lit by a skylight. There were three rows of desks in it and against them high stools. Over the chimney piece was a dirty engraving of a prize fight. Presently a clerk came in and then another they glanced at Philip and in an undertone asked the office boy Philip found his name was Macdougal who he was. A whistle blew, and Macdougal got up. Mr. Goodworthy s come. He s the managing clerk. Shall I tell him you re here Yes, please, said Philip. The office boy went out and in a moment returned. Will you come this way Philip followed him across the passage and was shown into a room, small and barely furnished, in which a little, thin man was standing with his back to the fireplace. He was much below the middle height, but his large head, which seemed to hang loosely on his body, gave him an odd ungainliness. His features were wide and flattened, and he had prominent, pale eyes his thin hair was sandy he wore whiskers that grew unevenly on his face, and in places where you would have expected the hair to grow thickly there was no hair at all. His skin was pasty and yellow. He held out his hand to Philip, and when he smiled showed badly decayed teeth. He spoke with a patronising and at the same time a timid air, as though he sought to assume an importance which he did not fe.
ry close together. Hearing his footstep, they separated quickly, and manchester united official kit though he could not see well in the darkness he was almost certain they were Cacilie and Herr Sung. Their rapid movement apart suggested that they had been walking arm in arm. Philip was puzzled and surprised. He had never paid much attention to Fraulein Cacilie. She was a plain girl, with a square face and blunt features. She could not have been more than sixteen, since she still wore her long fair hair in a plait. That evening at supper he looked at her curiously and, though of late she had talked little at meals, she addressed him. Where did you go for your walk today, Herr Carey she asked. Oh, I walked up towards the Konigstuhl. I didn t go out, she volunteered. I had a headache. The Chinaman, who sat next to her, turned round. I m so sorry, he said. I hope it s better now. Fraulein Cacilie was evidently uneasy, for she spoke again to Philip. Did you meet many people on the way Philip could not help reddening when he told a downright lie. No. I don t think I saw a living soul. He fancied that a look of relief passed across her eyes. Soon, however, there could be no doubt that manchester united official kit there was something between the pair, and other people in the Frau Professor s house saw them lurking in dark places. The elderly ladies who sat at the head of the table began to discuss what was now a scandal. The Frau Professor was angry and harassed. She had done her best to see manchester united official kit nothing. The winter was at hand, and it was not as easy a matter then as in the summer to keep her house full. Herr Sung was a good customer he had two rooms on the ground floor, and he drank a bottle of Moselle at each meal. The Frau Professor charged him three marks a bottle and made a good profit. None of her other guests drank wine, and some of them manchester united official kit did not even drink beer. Neither did she wish to lose Fraulein Cacilie, whose parents were in business in South America and paid well for the Frau Professor s motherly care and she knew that if she wrote to the girl s uncle, who lived in Berlin, he would immediately take her away. The Frau Professor contented herself with giving them both severe looks at table and, though she dared not be rude to the Chinaman, got a certain satisfaction out of incivility to Cacilie. But the three elderly ladies were not content. Two were widows, and one, a Dutchwoman, was a spinster of masculine appearance they paid the smallest possible sum for their pension.another or came at last to some strange mansion. One day a good fortune befell him, for he hit upon Lane s translation of The Thousand Nights and a Night. He was captured first by the illustrations, and then he began to read, to start with, the stories that dealt with magic, and then the others and those he liked he read again and again. He could think of nothing else. He forgot the life about him. He had to be called two or three times before he would come to his dinner. Insensibly he formed the most delightful habit in the world, the habit of reading he did not know that thus he was providing himself with a refuge from all the distress of life he did not know either that he was creating for himself an unreal world which would make the real world of every day a boys portugal kit source of bitter disappointment. Presently he began to read other things. His brain was precocious. His uncle and aunt, seeing that he occupied himself and neither worried nor made a noise, ceased to trouble themselves about him. Mr. Carey had so many books that he did not know them, and as he read little he forgot the odd lots he had bought at one time and another because they were cheap. Haphazard among the sermons and homilies, the travels, the lives of the Saints, the Fathers, the histories of the church, were old fashioned novels and these Philip at last discovered. He chose them by their titles, and the first he read was The Lancashire Witches, and then he read manchester united official kit The Admirable Crichton, and then many more. Whenever he started a book with two solitary travellers riding along the brink of a desperate ravine he knew he was safe. The summer was come now, and the gardener, an old sailor, made him a hammock and fixed it up for him in the branches of a weeping willow. And here for bayern warm up jersey long hours he lay, hidden from anyone who might come to the vicarage, reading, reading passionately. Time passed and it was July August came on Sundays the church was crowded with strangers, and cheap custom football shirts the collection at the offertory often amounted to two pounds. Neither the Vicar nor Mrs. Carey went out of the garden much during this period for they disliked strange faces, and they looked upon the visitors from London with aversion. The house opposite was taken for six manchester united official kit weeks by a gentleman who had two little boys, and he sent in to ask if Philip would like to go and play with them but Mrs. Carey returned a polite refusal. She was afraid that Philip would be corrupted by little boys from.phasize his anger by beating his desk with the cane. He never did more now than take a boy by the shoulders and shake him. He still made a naughty or refractory lad stand with one arm stretched out for anything from ten minutes to half an hour, and he was as violent as before with his tongue. No master could have been more unfitted to teach things to so shy a boy as Philip. He had come to the school with fewer terrors than he had when first he went to Mr. Watson s. He knew a good many boys who had been with him at the preparatory school. He felt more grownup, and instinctively realised that among the larger numbers his deformity would be less noticeable. But from the first day Mr. Gordon struck terror in his heart and the master, quick to discern the boys who were frightened of him, seemed on that account to take a peculiar dislike to him. Philip had enjoyed his work, but now he began to look upon the hours passed in school with horror. Rather than risk an. answer which might be wrong and excite a storm of abuse from the master, he would sit stupidly silent, and when it came towards his turn to stand up and construe he grew sick and white with apprehension. His happy moments were those when Mr. Perkins took the form. He was able to gratify the passion for general knowledge which beset the headmaster he had read all sorts of strange books beyond his years, and often Mr. Perkins, when a question was going round the room, would stop at Philip with a smile that filled the boy with rapture, and say Now, Carey, you tell them. The good marks he got on these occasions increased Mr. Gordon s indignation. One day it came to Philip s turn to translate, and the master sat there glaring at him and furiously biting his thumb. He was in a ferocious mood. Philip began to speak in a low voice. Don t mumble, shouted the master. Something seemed to stick in Philip s throat. Go on. Go on. Go on. Each time the words were screamed more loudly. The effect was to drive all he knew out of Philip s head, and he looked at the printed page vacantly. Mr. Gordon began to breathe heavily. If you don t know why don t you say so Do you know it or not Did you hear all this construed last time or not Why don t you speak Speak, you blockhead, speak The master seized the arms of his chair and grasped them buy chelsea kit as though to prevent himself from falling upon Philip. They knew that in past days he often used to seize boys by the throat till they almost manchester united official kit choked. The veins in his forehead s.

Bad language was no longer heard, and the little nastinesses of small boys were looked upon with hostility the bigger boys, like the lords temporal of the Middle Ages, used the strength of their arms to persuade those weaker than themselves to virtuous courses. Philip, his restless mind avid for new things, became very devout. He heard soon that it was possible to join a Bible League, and wrote to London for particulars. These consisted in a form to be filled up with the applicant s name, age, and school a solemn 70s football shirts declaration to be signed that he would read a set manchester united official kit portion of Holy Scripture every night for a year and a request for half a crown this, it was explained, was demanded partly to prove the earnestness of the applicant s desire to become a member of the League, and partly to cover clerical expenses. Philip duly sent the papers and the money, and in return received a calendar worth about a penny, on which was set down the appointed passage to be read each day, and a sheet of paper on one side of which was a picture of the Good Shepherd and a lamb, and on the other, decoratively framed in red lines, a short pr. ayer which had to be said before beginning to read. Every evening he undressed as quickly as possible in order to have time for his task before the gas was put out. He read industriously, as he read always, without criticism, stories of cruelty, deceit, ingratitude, dishonesty, and low cunning. Actions which would have excited his horror in the life about him, in the reading passed through his mind without comment, because they were committed under the direct inspiration of God. The method of the League was to alternate a book of the Old Testament with a book of the New, and one night Philip came across barcelona kids jersey these words of Jesus Christ If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea it shall be done. And all this, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive. They made no particular impression on him, but it happened that two or three days later, being Sunday, the Canon in residence chose them for the text of his sermon. Even if Philip had wanted to hear this it would have been impossi.
