Quote of the Day

"There he is!" said the girl in a terrified whisper. "That is his car!"
"Well," said Julie, "don't sit staring at the door or he'll spot you at once. Just be talking and laughing naturally with us like a girl--"
"Of course, of course," said the girl and she hurriedly turned round and bent her head.
Ricky gave a high-pitched unnatural giggle from sheer nerves. Julie glared at her. "Sorry," said Ricky. "I'm just a wee bit nervous, that's all." She fidgeted idly with her scarf lying on the table and kept her eyes on the door. Come what may, she was determined to get a good view of this crook. At the rate she was going she might never see another.
