A jealousy, as hot as flame, excoriated Peyton as lie noted the little intimacies of his attitude. Lawrence questioned and explained. He leaned over her to adjust wraps obviously In co need of adjustment. Though his suffering grew intense, Peylon could not lake his eyes away; Once it came over him how strange it was.
