“I don’t believe he thinks much about it.”
“How large a boy is he?”
“I should think he was about as large as you. Yes, come to think of it, I don’t believe there can be any difference between you.”
The joke was a cruel one, as Charlie found to his cost, before long.
“Is he on board now?”
“I don’t see him,” said the mate, looking in the opposite direction from where Charlie was 长沙桑拿网桑拿论坛 standing. “But I think he will be on board very soon. Were you ever dressed in sailor’s 长沙桑拿洗浴中心 clothes?”
“Never,” said our hero.
“I wonder how you would look. You are just about my nephew’s 长沙桑拿水疗会所体验 size. Have you any objection to trying on his clothes?”
Charlie had not. In fact he was rather curious to learn how he should look in this unusual attire. Accordingly he went below, and was soon dressed in full sailor rig. It was a very good fit, and very becoming to our hero, who was a remarkably handsome boy.
“A good fit, is it not?” asked the mate.
“Excellent,” said Charlie.
“One would almost think the clothes were meant for you,” said Randall, with a smile, which Charlie did not understand.
X. CHARLIE IN A TIGHT PLACE.
Charlie surveyed himself in his new attire with some complacency. He felt that it was becoming, and it gave him a new 长沙桑拿洗浴 feeling of manliness. In fact it seemed to him, for the time being, as if he were really 长沙桑拿洗浴全套价格 a sailor. Charlie, however, though he was very well pleased with his sailor’s rig, did not feel 长沙桑拿按摩酒店in the least tempted to wear it professionally. Accordingly, after the survey was over, he began to divest himself of it.
“What are you doing?” asked the mate, laying his hand heavily upon the shoulder of our young hero.
“Taking off your nephew’s clothes,” returned Charlie, looking up in considerable surprise at the tone in which he was addressed.
“What’s that for?”
“To put on my own.”
“Then you needn’t trouble yourself,” said Randall, composedly; “those you have on are your own.”
“What do you mean?” asked Charlie meeting the mate’s triumphant look with an open, manly glance.
“I mean,” said Randall, with a sardonic look, “that the clothes were bought for the one who now wears them.”
“Bought for me!” exclaimed
Charlie,长沙夜网论坛 in great bewilderment.
“Yes. You wondered how they happened to fit you so well. That is 长沙桑拿按摩贴吧 easily explained. They were picked out on purpose for you. The old Jew in the clothing-store took your measure with his eye while you were standing there with me. Faith, he’s got a pretty sharp eye.”
“But your nephew?” said Charlie, his heart sinking, as he began to comprehend the plot to which he had fallen a victim; “I thought you said they belonged to him.”
