Wood-Bottom Janir

Image

------------------------------------------
One evening, Angelique had gone to see Wood-Bottom in the hole where he lived by the Bridge of Saint-Michel. She had brought him chitterlings. Wood –Bottom was the only person in the gang for whom she had any esteem. She shoved him little attentions, which he received with the air of grumpy bulldog who considers them perfectly natural. (…)
“I don’t want it” said Angelique. The cripple bursted into a loud, bitter laugh.
“I didn’t want it either, when a cannonball came and tore my two pins off at Nordlingen. But it didn’t ask my opinion. You can’t undo these things. You’ve got to accept them, that’s all….
