"Send him in. And tell the Armourer to come up in five minutes."

Supper was comfortably served and hot, though my aunt's rooms were very high up - whether that she might have more stone stairs for her money, or might be nearer to the door in the roof, I don't know - and consisted of a roast fowl, a steak, and some vegetables, to all of which I did ample justice, and which were all excellent. But my aunt had her own ideas concerning London provision, and ate but little.

Violet, guardedly but helpfully, said the guides thought it would clear up during the afternoon. The barometer was rising. She looked nervously at Fraulein Bunt to see if she had said too much to the pariah, and then, not reassured, went back to her two vast baked potatoes with poached eggs in them.TO訴7?!y'X龆姴?澲屨鷨Km辐2u=d鎉矚呱?逇膈暔桭L擗鎫%J)D2五洔汽摘瞗紡uM湚j?柾}/H?U膹柠\艆諲娓.阤?餳淛iU檍Y5?渚'歿m﨟b嬌酏逫馏衺摀户R邇?с衖>?*嗞9^穴鎺2銓咐髃懋邙f壦钦杤g鼵﨤x惊K~N煎t鍶費逹:?哒+^櫅坍<鼩&嶄t葴М4脄r%K衩酵KOl沛1ytH淼?禣?擇凊q窒煰,?P燕W杘嘚XD?粩続旘畑;鎂鼝ou镣=已撲諙籩﨤淘:WKL墸亥Kh覿 臆?伕鍤蛫??输滛yゴ栄?"鷫娆鑪(??A嘷L闅篿S塉鬗騭絵v滭x變$=v毒P]>j酑k瞋↓吼_UPye?T銓邮?J圭鸟~唜閡暩焰?'nm€螐焳FlS輄剒kS?k櫘釉暥ン甖EGtB锕镆)瑹n遏??魎玨漉qW嵱絜G耽tJ俚ⅶ稢籬Fo您両嫨?溴壕S?]]5闇領駼>曀翰甛?匠礪|2/?-S~L?ss炀熢G:_K鰨啊鷉,驰懀eV?鮏玂)/閑U4 鶪畊}舸栫曫V諭终pz樢il礳楄鏽9^卞溺]呱?窑隂f?g偆稨棧侄a谄W詀胕 B 蝪观u錠.M?s筊説鯮L9O複/gkゴ铲榛9ФoR 泊4鮚7X緰y徤靧撥欎陧芎駘"6 v志M骩屈g僃 都2X?[鹗:ヴ蚆-l嶪顥4e引?竝趆壏OT熈閎绞g杍轵褛?淰裧oq?①蒮Z暒!K-T棖f昒?uDt憁e敻洫I饁灓%sz!Uí┌裙V裠围l.T诊j谲?_箣?F耓幼nTs&囀喹==楑?4蚿y荥N長料ㄣ?KZ#塊ドw"臼氒?琵d梛EY*g?b蓱?Y<捖逆?σ嗒Wo?籛,濻yZ驁^UH╁邆津_&!杮秠漀-V妖Z|蚴煄滭y弨h蛬Oh沃帓核斾﹞LR?A1e本y?fl见巊擥Z嶞瘋自頩k惢+6倆{A蝣p崴莪?舧Zzi涴譼狥lX舆R秜3U趉掛=妜&5?v瓡誶N?洡仺饮巤玪璶檤>訟,?妀x裻齇dnt馈c鶽'0扗寅*&?藯鎥f潲9R7 n%Xm騤涀糙墨?鋳气u袭Z?^Yd鏃?E'浜iO凨琸涾抯V麵Tu33蔇譟/?貲閆\9?禣阶ZE拡稇Z9T婇毩诃憴u?桿?㏒:E2蔲[每跾?Bn<诿K yGi渪e鵈糇G'I5鲳谭臆絟荆Si諄箷矞X麨邇V磯j屈艞騎襣?觛類m?捹暏[卦*Л鳪1Ow誣j;T疃鼁DT?9竏??%?X賢碋?:涯旺#CH4MI埻a箈諚b?'???遄+猆-a?飂7棌$駀#耔鱈?泏e?基9Y L*?)盂8l眕Ad5(雧镳F∈]螹?塵栧'4貢碮2KY訚涺\々轶吃/@靰 P斒D[$憵訨t???m\棦霷畹醷eS.瀿46O燊`[T?? ?矑\怤k瀹鍵著GT餉T?en遏噆aV狦l鈳o w["妃,權hMary Parnell was not to know that such a transaction was impossible under the currency laws. She knelt down and ran her hands lovingly over the gleaming bars. Then she got up and threw her arms around Major Smythe's neck and kissed him. "You're a wonderful, wonderful man," she said, almost in tears. "Frightfully clever and handsome and brave, and now I find out that you're rich as well. I'm the luckiest girl in the world."

Then I was sent to a private school at Sunbury, kept by Arthur Drury. This, I think, must have been done in accordance with the advice of Henry Drury, who was my tutor at Harrow School, and my father’s friend, and who may probably have expressed an opinion that my juvenile career was not proceeding in a satisfactory manner at Harrow. To Sunbury I went, and during the two years I was there, though I never had any pocket-money, and seldom had much in the way of clothes, I lived more nearly on terms of equality with other boys than at any other period during my very prolonged school-days. Even here, I was always in disgrace. I remember well how, on one occasion, four boys were selected as having been the perpetrators of some nameless horror. What it was, to this day I cannot even guess; but I was one of the four, innocent as a babe, but adjudged to have been the guiltiest of the guilty. We each had to write out a sermon, and my sermon was the longest of the four. During the whole of one term-time we were helped last at every meal. We were not allowed to visit the playground till the sermon was finished. Mine was only done a day or two before the holidays. Mrs. Drury, when she saw us, shook her head with pitying horror. There were ever so many other punishments accumulated on our heads. It broke my heart, knowing myself to be innocent, and suffering also under the almost equally painful feeling that the other three — no doubt wicked boys — were the curled darlings of the school, who would never have selected me to share their wickedness with them. I contrived to learn, from words that fell from Mr. Drury, that he condemned me because I, having come from a public school, might be supposed to be the leader of wickedness! On the first day of the next term he whispered to me half a word that perhaps he had been wrong. With all a stupid boy’s slowness, I said nothing; and he had not the courage to carry reparation further. All that was fifty years ago, and it burns me now as though it were yesterday. What lily-livered curs those boys must have been not to have told the truth! — at any rate as far as I was concerned. I remember their names well, and almost wish to write them here.

Bond immediately put away his lascivious thoughts.According to Dikko, to be invited to a Japanese private house was a most unusual sign of favour. So, for some reason, he had done right to win this childish game. This might mean great things. Bond bowed. 'Nothing would give me more pleasure, Tiger.'
