1 It was the picture of a girl with a laughing face.
2 He gave a puzzled glance at the little girl sitting on the large stool.
3 The little girl from India was sitting on a big footstool looking on.
4 He sat down upon the end of the pine bench and the girl hitched herself away from him with a toss of her head.
5 The girl glanced at the words, but made no sign.
6 The girl made a sort of non-committal attempt to see, but the boy did not betray that he was aware of it.
7 Then the girl's interest began to fasten itself upon the work and she forgot everything else.
8 Everyone was too panic-stricken to think of a little girl no one was fond of.
9 "I am Mary Lennox," the little girl said, drawing herself up stiffly.
10 Poor girl, she did not know how fast she was nearing trouble herself.
11 A little shamefaced girl lisped, "Mary had a little lamb," etc.
12 Please to don't poke fun at a poor girl like me, mum.
13 You do a girl tolerable poor, but you might fool men, maybe.
14 She wondered a little what this girl would do if one slapped her in the face.
15 Says I to myself, something's up; it ain't natural for a girl to be in such a sweat about a Testament.
