pools of liquor, and where spent matches and tobacco-ash littered the white wood.
'No-what for?--come an' sit 'ere!'-he was reluctant to get on his feet; I knew it and laughed inwardly; I also laughed to hear his thick speech, and his words which seemed to slur against his cheeks.
She went and sat by him, having moved the little table with its spilled liquor.
'They've been tellin' me how to get rich,' he said, nodding his head and laughing, showing his teeth, `An' I'm goin' ter show 'em. You see, Meg, you see-I'm goin' ter show 'em I can be as good as them, you see.'
'Why,' said she, indulgent, `what are you going to do?'
'You wait a bit an' see-they don't know yet what I can do-they don't know you don't know-none of you know.'
`An' what shall you do when we're rich, George?'
`Do?-I shall do what I like. I can make as good a show as anybody else, can't I?'-he put his face very near to hers, and nodded at her, but she did not turn away.'Yes-I'll see what it's like to have my fling. We've been too cautious, our family has-an' I have; we 're frightened of ourselves, to do anything. I'm goin' to do what I like, my duck, now-I don't care-I don't carethat!'-he brought his hand down heavily on the table nearest him, and broke a glass. Bill looked in to see vrnat was happening.

'You 're too good-hearted to do anybody any harm.'
` I believe I am. You know me a bit, you do, wieg-you don't think I'm a fool now, do you?'
'I 'm sure I don't-who does?'
'No-you don't-I know you don't. Gi'e me a kissthou 'rt a little beauty, thou art-like a ripe plum! I could set my teeth in thee, thou 'rt that nice-full o' red juice'-he playfully pretended to bite her. She laughed, and gently pushed him away.
`Tha likest me, doesna ta?' he asked softly.
'What do you want to know for?' she replied, with a tender archness.
