chat to 17 when Windy grew out. I hope you want to know what became of the other boys they were waiting below to give Wendy time to explain about them. And when they had counted 500 they went up. They went up by the stair because they thought this would make a better impression. They stood in a row in front of Mrs Darling with their hats off and wishing they were not wearing their pirate clothes. They said nothing for their eyes, asked her toe havethe, Um, they ought to have looked at Mr Darling also, but they forgot about him. Of course, Mrs Darling set up once that she would have them, But Mr Darling was curiously depressed, and they saw that he considered six a rather large number. I must say, windy, that you don't do things by halves, a grudging remark, which the twins thought was pointed at them. The first twin was the proud one, and he asked Flushing when he cried shocked, but still the cloud was on him. He knew he was behaving. I'm Werth early, but he could not help it, Mrs Darling exclaimed. Pain to see her dear one showing himself in such an unfavourable light. Then he burst into tears and the truth came out. He was a CZ glad toe have them as she wass, he said that he thought they should have asked his consent as well as hers, instead of treating him as a Cypher in his own house. It turned out that no one off them thought him a Cypher, and he was absurdly gratified and said he would find space for them all in the drawing room if they fitted in, then follow the leader. Mind you, I'm not sure that we have a drawing room, but we pretend we haven't. It's all the same hoopla. He went off dancing through the house, and they all cried. Hoopla on danced after him searching for the drawing room, and I forget whether they found it. But at any rate, they found corners and they all fitted in. As for Peter, he saw Wendy once again before he flew away. He didn't exactly come to the window, but he brushed against it in passing so that she could open it if she liked and called to him. That is what she did. Mrs. Darling came to the window for a present. She was keeping a sharp eye on Wendy. She told Peter that she had adopted all the other boys and would like to adopt him. Also said Wendy the Comforter and Mrs Darling stretched out her arms to him. But he repulsed her, cried Wendy so longingly that Mrs Darling tighten her grip, Mrs Darling said. Explained Windy, who was now quite an authority, said Peter, with eye on Wendy. She reminded him a little tartly. Tink called out from somewhere around the corner, Peter said, as if he had asked her from politeness merely. But Mrs Darling saw his mouth twitch, and she made this handsome offer to let Wendy go to him for a week every year to do his spring cleaning. Wendy would have preferred a more permanent arrangement, and it seemed to her that spring would be long in coming. But this promise sent Peter away quite *** again. He had no sense of time on was so full of a venture that all I have told you about him is only a half penny worth off. I suppose it was because Wendy knew this that her last words to him were these rather plaintiff ones? Of course, Peter promised, and then he flew away. He took Mrs Darlings kiss with him, the kiss that have bean for no one else. Peter took quite insanely funny, but she's seen satisfied. Of course, all the boys went to school on most of them, got into class three, but slightly was put first into Class four, then into Class five. Class one is the top class. Before they had attended school a week, they saw what goats they had bean not to remain on the island, but it was too late now, and soon they settled down to being as ordinary as you or mean or Jenkins minder. It is sad to say that the power to fly gradually left thumb. At first, Nana tied their feet to the bed post so that they should not fly away in the night on one of their diversions. By day was to pretend to fall off buses by and by. They ceased to tug at their bonds in bed and found that they hurt themselves when they let go of the bus. In time, they could not even fly after their hats want of practise, they called it, but what it really meant was that they no longer believed Michael believed longer than the other boys, so they jeered at him. So he was with Wendy. When Peter came for her at the end of the first year, she flew away with Peter in the frocks she had woven from leaves and Berries in the Neverland on her. One fear was that he might notice how short it had become, but he never noticed. He had so much to say about himself. She had looked forward to thrilling talks with him about old times, but New Adventures had crowded the old ones from his mind. He asked with interest when she spoke of the arch enemy, he replied carelessly. When she expressed a doubtful hope that Tinker Bell will be glad to see her, he said she said, shocked. But even when she explained he could not remember, I expect he was right for Fairies don't live long, but they're so little that a short time seems a good while to them when he was paying, too, to find that the past year was. But as yesterday to Peter, it is seems such a long year of waiting to her, but he was exactly as fascinating as ever on. They had a lovely spring cleaning in the little house on the treetops. Next year, he did not come for her. She waited in a new frog because the old one simply would not meet. But he never came. Michael came close to her and whispered with a shiver.
