This week's teasers are from:
I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith

I Capture the Castle

Teaser #1:

I felt that what with the moonlight, the music, the scent of the stocks and having swum round a six-hundred-year-old moat, romance was getting a really splendid leg-up and it seemed an awful waste that we weren't in love with each other -- I wondered if I ought to have got Rose and Simon to swim the moat instead of us.

Teaser #2: 

But I finally decided that cold water is definitely anti-affection, because when Neil did eventually put his arm round me it wasn't half so exciting as when he held my hand under the warm car-rug after the picnic.
