It would not do at all. Yet, it she left them unprovided for, the moumint! of Godfrey, Marcel, Sir Charles iiiul Basil might well contain a note of panic. xix S OPHIE had been waiting several relays for a chance to talk to .yicky. Since the Bagol boy had gone back to his iienr-by base, Ige'tticg home only for week ends, tVicky had thrown hersoU into fBed Cross work with the zeal of C fanatic. k Sophie was worried at her lack Tot' appetite and at a loss to ac- [ocunt lor it, since a fat letter ar- Hved'for Vicky almost daily anc Salty come back for the week cm twice in the month of July. The child could not think he was neg her. was not Vicky's affairs tha pn her grandmother's min Sophie's return to he . biTilplace and the scenes of he sVo'u*h ^ ad l cd *° thoughts o£ he r <den*ise. Her conscience', havin ' provided now for all to whom sh vas indebted, should have bee -clear. Being at bottom a goo ?SOund, incorruptible Maine coi science, it was not. « |i iWhile she was slowly drying V .fat the hot Riviera sun, Sophie ha I gftan no thought lo the possibili I otheic predeceasing Marcel,or.S ! Charles "and leaving them unpr Vided for. But now that she h assumed responsibility for B; -, and God.'rey also, she began i consider the possibility of her o\ 1 death. The odds were against 1 ':ootl:ving all of them; indeed, s thoujjht, she would very much d like furviving her contemporari She pictured herself lonely a grov/ing helpless, losing her vie attended by only hired hands a bereft of the adulation which took as regularly as her morn coffee. She could not imagine funeral without mourners ot arv\nLlNO," Sophie said, "I •^ want t" ask ynu something, l know. 1 can't live forever in the flesh, that is—" Don't, Granny!" Vicky cried in 1 terror. The world without dame van Eyck was something could not bear lo think about a dreadful to be without fam- without a homo! "Granny,' wanted to add, "please don 1 e till I'm married and s d have some kind of a life o • own—" It's a thing we must face," sau phie firmly, not really bclicvin it herself. "Of course you Uno\ am leaving everything to yoi on will be very rich. I have n ebe I wish to remember y will. However—that does no can I intend to leave cveryoi ^provided for." "Oh, you'll outlive thorn all iclr^ said, hoping devoutly til ould prove to be the case. "Perhaps," said Sophie, lough Sir Chnrlcs is young urn I." That IVIrivfel, Godfrey al 3nsil were also her juniors she efused to ac]\uowlcdgc. "Sir Charles must be taken care ot, ul- yays." : Madame van Eyck is survived >y a grauddaughtcr and a bul- cr,' " Vicky munnurcd. Sophie looked at her coldly. "I'm sorry," said Vicky. "All right, dear. Now. It would ; foolish for me to name in my will people who arc only loo likely to predecease me. I have, therefore, ns I sr'.y, left everything U you. On condition that you ; take care of Marcel. Sir Qiarlcs Godfrey and Basil." Vicky was silent. "Well?" said Sophie. "Yes, Grandmother." pressed her hands together be- I twccn her hticcs. She tnl'l herself, i mustn't say anyiiV.nfi. 1 must never Jot her know. Granny is so good and kind. t » t * * * "'OESIDES, I'd hale to feel I was leaving you all alone," .Sophie went on. "And haying sornc'me else for whom you aVc rcspnnsible just as youd as the other way und." Vicky was thinking how deadly was, living with a lot 01 old eoplc. It they have a train to itch, they always go to a station i hour early and sit in the wait- IB room Tor fear they'll miss the •ain. If they walk around the rden once and read the paper icy'vc had a busy day. They hate ot to have meals on schedule, hey don't like noise, and they 11 dance music noise. They've ecu left behind by one (jencra- ion and are never really com- ovtable with the next. "OC course," said Sophie, "it's uml on older people to have to ive with young ones. Young peo- ile have no sense of time, they laic lo do anything when it should be done and they have no respect any more. 1 don't mean to say you leed actually have Marcel or Sir Charles to live with you. They wouldn't like that at all." Vicky could nut help smiling as she heard the opposite point, of view. She was too young to realize that, in one of nature's most merciful examples of compensation, loss of desire to he active accompanies the loss of ability. "Oil, Granny, you know I •ouldn't let them starve! You ou't need to talk about it." •That's a dear child. Godfrey •md Basil too, of course. Promise.'" "I promise." "Dear child!" Victoria pictured Salty propos- _ng and being informed that f old men went along with his bride She must get married bcfop Granny died! She bad to! Anc suppose Salty never did p at all? Supposing he stayed in th Navy and went to sea for year and years and Granny died and they never came hack lo Goosa Neck any more and she never saw him again. . . .
