Kalaj changes him, but when he meets a girl named Allison he becomes self-conscious again.
“Not every girl can buy a Rodarte dress,” says Keltner de Valle.
It seemed like the highest sophistication—good, grownup humor—yet still not boring for a 15-year-old girl.
The girl is Zoe Lihn, who will most likely need three open-heart surgeries to sustain her life.
In January 2014, a driver hit and killed a six year old girl.
You may be almost the first girl to apply, or you may be among the latest, but not the too latest.
He stood in deep shadow and the girl had been too absorbed in the play to note his coming.

He was forced to admit that the girl still had power to trouble him.

c.1300, gyrle "child" (of either sex), of unknown origin; current scholarship [OED says] leans toward an unrecorded Old English *gyrele, from Proto-Germanic *gurwilon-, diminutive of *gurwjoz (apparently also represented by Low German gære "boy, girl," Norwegian dialectal gorre, Swedish dialectal gurre "small child," though the exact relationship, if any, between all these is obscure), from PIE *ghwrgh-, also found in Greek parthenos "virgin." But this is highly conjectural. And Liberman (2008) writes:
Girl does not go back to any Old English or Old Germanic form. It is part of a large group of Germanic words whose root begins with a g or k and ends in r. The final consonant in girl is a diminutive suffix. The g-r words denote young animals, children, and all kinds of creatures considered immature, worthless, or past their prime.Another candidate is Old English gierela "garment" (for possible sense evolution in this theory, cf. brat). Like boy, lass, lad it is of obscure origin. "Probably most of them arose as jocular transferred uses of words that had originally different meaning" [OED]. Specific meaning of "female child" is late 14c. Applied to "any young unmarried woman" since mid-15c. Meaning "sweetheart" is from 1640s. Girl next door as a type of unflashy attractiveness is recorded by 1953.
Doris [Day] was a big vocalist even before she hit the movies in 1948. There, as the latest movie colony "girl next door," sunny-faced Doris soon became a leading movie attraction as well as the world's top female recording star. "She's the girl next door, all right," said one Hollywood admirer. "Next door to the bank." ["Life" magazine, Dec. 22, 1958]Girl Friday is from 1940, a reference to "Robinson Crusoe."
