  • Jevon Washingtonhas quoted9 years ago
    It was hard work — a hard life — but now that she was about to leave it she did not find it a wholly undesirable life.
  • Jevon Washingtonhas quoted9 years ago
    Home! She looked round the room, reviewing all its familiar objects which she had dusted once a week for so many years, wondering where on earth all the dust came from.
  • darkfairyniahas quoted10 years ago
    leave her home. Was that wise? She tried to weigh each side of the question. In her home anyway she had shelter and food; she had those whom she had known all her life about her. Of course she had to work hard, both in the house and at business. What would they say of her in the Stores when they found out that she had run away with a fellow?
