Now its all over and done with, thought Polly, as she fell asleep after a long vigil. But it was not, and
Pollys fun cost more than the price of gloves and bonnet, for having nibbled at forbidden fruit, she had
to pay the penalty. She only meant to have a good time, and there was no harm in that; but, unfortunately,
she yielded to the various small temptations that beset pretty young girls, and did more mischief to others
than to herself. Fannys friendship grew cooler after that night. Tom kept wishing Trix was half as satisfactory
as Polly, and Mr. Sydney began to build castles that had no foundation.
