DANGLING THE APPLE

She had a fine soprano voice, and the song delighted him. He moved nearer to her, and when at the finish she looked round with a flashing, mischievous air, she found him pledging her with wonderful eyes.
'You like that,' said she with the air of superior knowledge, as if, dear me, all one had to do was to turn over to the right page of the vast volume of one's soul to suit these people.
` I do,' he answered emphatically, thus acknowledging her triumph.
`I'd rather "dance and sing" round "wrinkled care" than carefully shut the door on him, while I slept in the chimney seat-wouldn't you?' she asked.
He laughed, and began to consider what she meant before he replied.
`As you do,' she added.

'Of course. Come and turn over for me while I play this piece. Well, I'll nod when you must turn-bring a chair.'
She began to play a romance of Schubert's. He leaned nearer to her to take hold of the leaf of music; she felt her loose hair touch his .face, and turned to him a quick, laughing glance, while she played. At the end of the page she nodded, but he was oblivious; `Yes!' she said, suddenly impatient, and he tried to get the leaf over; she quickly pushed his hand aside, turned the page herself and continued playing.
'Sorry!' said he, blushing actually.
