“Should I go talk to her?” Lucius asked Willem.
“Patty’s going. She’s got to get on to work anyhow. You done good, little brother. Keep talking like that, you’ll be a married man in no time.”
Lucius wasn’t sure what to think. He wanted to marry Dollie. He loved her with a passion he didn’t know existed. But he wasn’t sure he could live through the courtship. If she took off like that every time they kissed, he’d spend all his spare time chasing her down.
“Did I do something wrong to make her take off like that?”
“From what I saw, you did everything just right. Some women are more skittish than others. Now Patty, she’d have kissed me smack on the mouth and marched out proud as a peacock with its tail spread. Miss Dollie, she’s more shy-like.”
