She grew confused, glanced round, and, seeing the doll she had thrown down on one of the tubs, picked it up.
He handed the doll to Carmen.
Minutes later when the nurse arrived with a syringe of medicine, Destiny was asleep again, still clutching the doll to her chest.
Already she began to see quite plainly the little elves in their tall pointed hats, dancing down the dusky alleys, and peeping from between the bushes, and they seemed to come nearer and nearer; and she stretched her hands up towards the tree in which the doll sat and they laughed, and pointed their fingers at her.
I pointed this out to everybody with provoking persistency, but no one seemed equal to the task of providing the doll with eyes.
Then I showed her the doll and spelled the word again, holding the doll toward her as I held the cake.
Then she carried the doll upstairs and put it on the top shelf of the wardrobe, and she has not touched it since.
She had not finished the cake she was eating, and I took it away, indicating that if she brought the doll I would give her back the cake.
Carmen handed Destiny the doll and she wrapped it in her arms.
She helped me unpack my trunk when it came, and was delighted when she found the doll the little girls sent her.
