Forgotten Lore: Post Two

Forgotten Lore

(A Quaint & Curious Volume)

"The officers were satisfied. My manner had convinced them. I was singularly at ease. They sat, and while I answered cheerily, they chatted of familiar things. But, ere long, I felt myself getting pale and wished them gone. My head ached, and I fancied a ringing in my ears: but still they sat and still chatted. The ringing became more distinct: --It continued and became more distinct: I talked more freely to get rid of the feeling: but it continued and gained definiteness --until, at length, I found that the noise was not within my ears."


Here are the uncomplicated rules: 

  • I will provide a line or two from a book (perhaps from famous or popular authors, and maybe sometimes from lesser known folks who penned a good line). 
  • YOU take a guess at the author and the book. 
  • And, if you'd like, provide a line from your own favorite novel/author.
