The Prince, casting a glance of scarce concealed contempt over the throng, sighed, as he muttered, “If now I could meet the Emperor!”
The exclamation was from his heart.
We have seen the idea which lured him to Mecca, and brought him to Constantinople. In the years since flown, it was held subordinate to his love of Lael–subordinate merely.

They were not significant of his taste. Except for what they might bring him, he did not care for jewels. nike dunks high tops And as for Lael, he would have loved her for her name’s sake, and her honest, untarnished Jewish blood. Let us believe so at least until we find otherwise.
Nilo, by this time familiar with every quarter of the city, was told the boat was in readiness for the party at a landing near the Grand Gate of Blacherne; to make which, it being on the Golden Horn well up in the northwest, he must turn the hill back of the Prince’s residence, and pursue one of the streets running parallel with the wall. Thither he accordingly bent his steps, followed by the porters of the sedans, and an increasing but respectful asse nike dunks ebay mblage of curious citizens.
Scarcely had the progress begun before the Prince, watching through his front window, saw a man approach the side of Lael’s chair, and peer into it. His wit served him well and instantly.

The intruder at the sound of his voice looked at him once, then disappeared in the throng. He was young, handsome, showily dressed, and beyond question the person of whom Lael had complained. Though smarting under the insult, and a suspicion, suddenly engendered, of a watch kept over his house, the Prince concluded the stranger was of noble co nike dunks jd nnection, and that the warrant for his boldness was referable to family influence.

“Ask some one who knows. There he is in the second chair.”
Once a woman went close to Lael, snatched a look, and stepped back, with clasped hands, nike dunks uk crying:
“‘Tis the Sweet Mother herself!”
Without other incident, the procession passed the gate of St. Peter, and was nearing that of Blacherne, when a flourish of trumpets announced a counter pageant coming down the street from the opp cheap nike dunks osite direction. A man near by shouted:
“The Emperor! The Emperor!”
Another seconded him.
“Long live the good Constantine!”
The words were hardly uttered before they were answered:
