Some times we’re about the hero but today we’re all about the heroine.
I’ll give you several heroines and you tell me which one said what. The first person to correctly guess the name of all the heroines wins the book. Let’s see how well you know the woman we love.
A) “I’m offering to marry you” she said. “I want your protection. My father is too ill ad weak to help me, and I will not be a burden to my friends”.
B) “We are, but you are seventeen minutes younger. Because of this, I have always bullied you umercifully. I work these things out when I am playing a role, you see.
C) “If you don’t stop, I’m going to start crying,” she pleaded. “I hate to cry,” she added with a sob against his ear.
D) “I’ve known you for three years. You’re like me in a lot of ways. Hard working and proud and conscientious”.
E) “This is the only bed we can sleep in , the rest have gone moldy” she said.
F) “I protest, sir. You speak like I’m an…an actress trying out for a part.”
G) “What? Whatever for? You don’t think the Frenchman would strike by daylight, do you?
H) “You got a dupe, you use a dupe. You drive”
I) “That’s what I need right now”, she told him. A swimming pool, you can swim laps, but I’d like one of those floating chairs with a place to put drinks.”
J) “I don’t know his name.” And the fact that she didn’t made her feel foolish. “And okay, I know how that sounds. But I was told he was here. I think he’s in trouble.”
K) “How do you know what dreams I have?” she dared to ask. “You don’t even see me”.
L) “It’s just been a while, like I’ve said, so if you don’t want to deal with my inexperience, that’s fine. I understand.
M) “A lot has happened since that night,” she said. “Our lives have changed and fate has placed us in a difficult predicament. You are engaged to another woman, you do not wish to let your brothers down, and I quite frankly do not wish to allow myself to believe that I could ever trust you. I would prefer to remain on guard.”
N) “I’ve never been to a senior housing center. Is what I’m wearing acceptable?”
