A lively little thing who was always hopping and skipping around, a young tease who was full of that skittishness which passes for wit amount the street arabs of both sexes who have grown up on the pavements of Paris. She was a sweet girl but not really pretty, a rough sketch of a woman with a little of everything in her, one of those silhouettes which artists draw in three strokes on the tablecloth in a café after dinner, between a glass of brandy and a cigarette. Nature sometimes turns out creatures like that.
– Guy de Maupassant, Mouche
