Please describe how you could take the peel off an apple all in one go:
*I* certainly couldn't, though I saw a man in town once who could. He was a beggar and a thief, but I watched him when Miss P___'s back was turned. His knife was sharp and bright, and he turned the apple in one hand, red sliding off in a slender spiral to reveal white, tender flesh beneath. He looked up at me with a smile, and I shivered and turned away, my heart fluttering wildly. Most thrilling!
