Happy Thursday everyone! I can't believe it is already August! Where the Hell is my summer going? Holy crap! Hahaha. I can't believe Fall semester will be starting next month. Ewwwwwwwwwwwww. Well, I hope you all are having an excellent summer out there!
Well, today I shall shall a little snipbit from 'The Age of Desire' by Jennie Fields. This book is about Edith Wharton.
Page Number: 175
Location on Page: Second paragraph
"'Well,' he says.
Edith is mortified. She stands, her knees quaking. 'Not here. That's all I'm saying...'
'Sometimes you are an awful lot of effort.'
'I'm sorry.' She closes her eyes, remorseful. 'I didn't mean to hurt you. Did I hurt you?'
He glares at her, not answering. 'HR is coming soon. You understand?' He says.
Her lips quiver.
'Then we'll have no time alone together....even if he does approve of our enchevetrement romantique.'
'Just not here. Not here at Harry's.'
'And then you sail. 'Not here'. It's an excuse, you know. It's an excuse because you have no heart.'
'I do have a heart...' In fact, she feels it sinking, clanking away from her like a rock down a well. She must know him better, feel closer to him before she can feel close in that other way."
A little trouble in paradise I feel is ahead of me in my reading. Ooooooooooh.
