"I shall go home with her, for it is getting darkish, and she is rather 

timid," said Archie, forgetting that he had often laughed at this 

very timidity. 

 

"I think I might, for she's taking care of my brother," put in Steve, 

asserting his rights. 

 

"Let's all go, that will please her"; proposed Charlie, with a burst 

of gallantry which electrified his mates. 

 

"We will!" they said with one voice, and they did, to Rose's great 

surprise and secret contentment; though Archie had all the care of 

her, for the other two were leaping fences, running races, and 

having wrestling matches all the way down. 

 

They composed themselves on reaching the door, however; shook 

hands cordially all round, made their best bows, and retired with 

great elegance and dignity, leaving Rose to say to herself, with 

girlish satisfaction, as she went in 

 

"Now, that is the way I like to be treated."
