1 He wondered if the girl were thinking of it too.
2 Her words fell on his ear with a strange shock of wonder.
3 Her wonder and his laughter ran together like spring rills in a thaw.
4 It made a small frightened cheep like a field mouse, and he wondered languidly if it were hurt.
5 Suddenly he heard the old sorrel whinny across the road, and thought: "He's wondering why he doesn't get his supper."
6 Then, with a sudden dart of irony, he wondered if, when their turn came, the same epitaph would be written over him and Zeena.
7 The fact that admiration for his learning mingled with Mattie's wonder at what he taught was not the least part of his pleasure.
8 She was almost the last to leave the hall, and she stood looking uncertainly about her as if wondering why he did not show himself.
9 Watching Mattie whirl down the floor from hand to hand he wondered how he could ever have thought that his dull talk interested her.
10 A moment ago he had wondered what he and Mattie were to live on when they reached the West; now he saw that he had not even the money to take her there.
11 To Ethan there was something vaguely ominous in this stolid rejection of free food and warmth, and he wondered what had happened on the drive to nerve Jotham to such stoicism.
12 And the sweetness of Mattie's avowal, the wild wonder of knowing at last that all that had happened to him had happened to her too, made the other vision more abhorrent, the other life more intolerable to return to.
13 Beneath their wondering exclamations I felt a secret curiosity to know what impressions I had received from my night in the Frome household, and divined that the best way of breaking down their reserve was to let them try to penetrate mine.
14 It had been one of the wonders of their intercourse that from the first, she, the quicker, finer, more expressive, instead of crushing him by the contrast, had given him something of her own ease and freedom; but now he felt as heavy and loutish as in his student days, when he had tried to "jolly" the Worcester girls at a picnic.
