In a remote village in Hertfordshire, England, Mr. and Mrs. Bennet -- a country squire of no great fortune and his scatterbrained wife -- must marry off their five vivacious daughters.

THE KITE
Short Stories for English Language Learners
By Somerset Maugham

— ‘What’s he in for?’ I asked. — ‘He left his wife and the court ordered him to pay so much a week in alimony and he’s absolutely refused to pay it. He says he’ll stay in jail all his life rather than pay her a penny.'
— ‘What’s he got against her?’ — ‘She smashed his kite.’
— ‘She did what?’ I cried.
— ‘She smashed his kite. He says he’ll never forgive her for that till his dying day.’
— ‘He must be crazy.’
— ‘No, he isn’t . . . '
