rast always took the lead; and he had so many opinions of his own that there was no time to discuss, or even inquire about, hers.
Erastus, or rast, as he was called, went back to his place beside Anne.
Into the midst of all this swift sewing suddenly one day came rast.
Anne was a big girl to go; but rast was not to be withstood.
To rast, Anne wrote in the early morning, her only free time.
"You may if you choose; and I will not go unless you promise," said rast, with irritation.
"I could 'a' took her out ridin' to-night if I'd wanted to," lied 'rast promptly.
The Huron was the steamer which had carried rast away at twilight.
It was considered quite an achievement to bring back this accomplished animal, and rast was not above the glory.
Anne covered her eyes with her hands, and prayed that rast might not be among these.
