30 fester 25 ripen and generate pus NOTES:
The word is used figuratively in this example sentence. Pus is a liquid formed in infected tissue, but the pus here that makes others step back in disgust is the character's nastiness. "Fester" also means "to be a source of irritation" or "to corrupt" so the nastiness could be corrupting the character's tender heart and irritating others.

32 stampede: 27 a headlong rush of people on a common impulse NOTES:
The alliteration (repetition of the d sound) almost makes the sentence seem like a stampede of words rushing out of one's mouth. "Dusky" here means "naturally having skin of a dark color" and a "devastator" is one who causes "extensive destruction" or one who overpowers.
