It was Quasimodo Sunday, one week after Easter. The child who had been left that day was being inspected by two old women. “How strange! What can it be?” “It can’t really be a child, Agnes. Maybe it’s a deformed ape.” “It’s so ugly! Perhaps we should throw it into the river or the fire.” “Surely no one will claim this one! I don’t think it’s really a baby. My guess is that this ittle monster is about four years old.” Indeed, it was not a newborn baby. It was a twitching mass of humanity in a canvas bag. The head peeping out was very disfigured! There was a forest of red hair, one eye, a mouth, and a few teeth. The eye was weeping, the mouth was crying, and the teeth seemed to want only to bite.
Dose it mean that he was a creature that was made suddenly and carelessly in a short time?
Can we say here "mass" is: creature?
