What does lust mean in the following extract? (Animal Farm)
They tiptoed from room to room,
afraid to speak above a whisper and gazing with a kind of awe at
the unbelievable luxury, at the beds with their feather mattresses,
the looking-glasses, the horsehair sofa, the Brussels carpet, the
lithograph of Queen Victoria over the drawing-room mantelpiece.
They were lust coming down the stairs when Mollie was discovered
to be missing.
