She was very willing to go, and let Viney kiss her, though she didn't return the caress.
Helen resisted, and Viney tried to force it out of her hand, and I suspect that she slapped the child, or did something which caused this unusual outburst of temper.
At all events, there she was, tearing and scratching and biting Viney like some wild thing.
It seems Viney had attempted to take a glass, which Helen was filling with stones, fearing that she would break it.
I said: You struck Viney and kicked her and hurt her.
