In the shopnext day she heard the highly coloured reports which girls giveof their trivial amusements. They had been happy. On severaldays it rained and she used up car fare. One night she gotthoroughly soaked, going to catch the car at Van Buren Street.All that evening she sat alone in the front room looking out uponthe street, where the lights were reflected on the wet pavements,thinking. She had imagination enough to be moody.
"I'd like to," said Carrie, frankly.66변
"Oh, do," said Lola. "We'll have such a good time."66볃arrie thought a while."I believe I will," she said, and then added: "I'll have to seefirst, though."With the idea thus grounded, rent day approaching, and clothescalling for instant purchase, she soon found excuse inHurstwood's lassitude.
