Heaven, and I followed it at all risks. When Zemroude returned to the room, her
first care was to come to my cage. As soon as she perceived that the nightingale
was dead, she uttered a shriek that brought all her slaves about her. “What ails

you?” “I am in despair,” replied the princess, weeping bitterly. “My nightingale is

His trill was as soft as a nightingale's song, Yet you heard it above the roar ;
Though the vessel dash'd and the billow flash'd, Tom only whistled the more. If
reefing a topsail that shiver'd aloft — While the yards dipp'd deep in the spray-
Like a careless bird in his stormy swing He whistled and work'd away. But the
bravest must die, and poor old Tom One night made the waves his pillow — He
sleeps there yet, though he ... rises, the strain grows wild, And shrieks TOM

The classmates shrieked and tittered until one of the other girls sheepishly
admitted one of her patients got an erection too but she just flicked the tip with her
fingers. The man yelped and she just said, “Oh, sorry,” as if it was an accident.
The girls laughed so ... In the evenings the girls on her floor would sit in the hall
and also talk about their boyfriends and relate graphic tales of their lovemaking. It
was through this banter that she found out exactly what a hand-job entailed. She

The young man now held her fast in his arms. She did not try to push him away
nor did she think to do so. The nightingale stopped singing abruptly. A distant
voice called: 'Henriette!' 'Don't answer,' he whispered. 'You'll make it fly off.' She
no more thought to answer than to push him away. They remained as they were
for some time. Madame Dufour had sat down somewhere, for now and then they
just caught her little shrieks as the other oarsman doubtless set about rummaging

"He will be returning, soon !" exclaimed the girl, at last, in a hurried tone ; " but
look you to your husband — may-be you love him ; and it is very sad, as the song
says, * To love — and love for ever/ and then to find your lover go away just like
the down off the thistle — and may-be for as light a breath ! Well, keep him from
Harry, or the curse will overshadow you ; for I was as blithe and as happy as a
nightingale till I kept his company — not but what I'm gay enough still — only I
don't ever ...

be heard close to the window. It was the little real nightingale sitting on the
branch outside.
