Daily Writing Prompt (04/22/2017): Oliver Twist (203 Words)

Today’s writing prompt comes from Charles Dickens’s Oliver Twist. I wrote my completed excerpt with a Pilot Metropolitan fine nib fountain pen using Pilot Iroshizuku Kon-peki ink. The prompt is a total of 203 words.

‘No, no, he has not had one,’ said Mr. Brownlow, laughing. ‘Come!  Put
down your hat; and speak to my young friend.’

‘I feel strongly on this subject, sir,’ said the irritable old
gentleman, drawing off his gloves.  ‘There’s always more or less
orange-peel on the pavement in our street; and I _know_ it’s put there
by the surgeon’s boy at the corner.  A young woman stumbled over a bit
last night, and fell against my garden-railings; directly she got up I
saw her look towards his infernal red lamp with the pantomime-light.
“Don’t go to him,” I called out of the window, “he’s an assassin!  A
man-trap!”  So he is.  If he is not–‘  Here the irascible old
gentleman gave a great knock on the ground with his stick; which was
always understood, by his friends, to imply the customary offer,
whenever it was not expressed in words. Then, still keeping his stick
in his hand, he sat down; and, opening a double eye-glass, which he
wore attached to a broad black riband, took a view of Oliver:  who,
seeing that he was the object of inspection, coloured, and bowed again.

‘That’s the boy, is it?’ said Mr. Grimwig, at length.
