, yes, I am," said Molly; "but I'll have it out in a minute."
"Oh, please, be quick!" said Merry. "Anything a little bit out of the common is very interesting.--Isn't it, Cicely?"
"Very," said Cicely; "more particularly in the holidays. When we are busy with our lessons things don't so much matter, you know.--But do be quick, Molly; what is it?"
"Well," said Molly, "you've asked us to spend the afternoon with you."
"Of course, and you're both coming, surely?"
"We are--certainly we are--that is, if you will allow us to bring"----
"To bring"----interrupted Cicely. "Oh Molly, do speak!"
"Well, I will; only, don't jump, you two girls. To bring Maggie Howland!"
Cicely's face grew very pink. Merry, on the contrary, turned a little pale. They were both silent for a brief space. Then Merry said excitedly, "Maggie Howland--the Maggie Howland?"
"Yes, the Maggie Howland; the one who has got the power, the charm, the fascination."
