The excerpt represents the core issue or deciding factor on which you must meditate, and is drawn from Peter Pan by James M. Barrie:|
"See," he said, "the arrow struck against this. It is the kiss
I gave her. It has saved her life."
"I remember kisses," Slightly interposed quickly, "let me see it.
Ay, that's a kiss."
Peter did not hear him. He was begging Wendy to get better
quickly, so that he could show her the mermaids. Of course she
could not answer yet, being still in a frightful faint; but from
overhead came a wailing note.
"Listen to Tink," said Curly, "she is crying because the Wendy lives."
Then they had to tell Peter of Tink's crime, and almost never
had they seen him look so stern.
