One was an officer--a tall, soldierly, handsome man--the other evidently a private or an orderly, sunburned, short, and thin, with sunken cheeks and a dull expression.
In front came a man wearing a strange shako and a blue cloak, swarthy, sunburned, and with a hooked nose.
Believing their danger past, they sprang from their ambush and, chirruping something in their shrill little voices and holding up their skirts, their bare little sunburned feet scampered merrily and quickly across the meadow grass.
People who are severely sunburned should see a doctor who may prescribe corticosteroid cream to speed healing.
They should take care to avoid getting sunburned and should avoid participating in sports that involve physical contact or cause heavy perspiration.
