'VICKY, running to meet Salty, noticed the gaunt, black figure of Godfrey sharp ill outline against the gray sea. } ^'JleUo, darling,™ she grccicc .Salty. "There's no one in sigh : but Uncle Godfrey. You can kiss ; me," 1 "Hello, Vicky," said Salty, being very sensible. "Let's walk ii the. other direction. 1 don't wan to talk to anybody but you, jus now.' What's he always kan around for, anyway?" "Oh, he has nothing else to do He "thinks he has, though. lie thinks he's busy rs a one-armed postman in Christmas week." ',': "Salty did not smile. They set off along the driveway, awuy from the sea. . '. W I knew you'd bo baclt as soon .as you could," she said h"appily. fKlss me." -. . "Of course I haven't let Mother Mart to shut up the house .so early, pr* any nonsense like that. I've talked her out of it." "Good for you. I knew you •wouldn't let her ga us long as you're in this part o£ the world, you haven't kissed me yet." 'Salty was looking straight ahead, his forehead wrinkled in iparnest thought. "I don't believe : in running away from unpleasant •things," he announced. V . * Vicky stopped walking. "Sally! Look at me." >- He did not turn his head to Iheet her eyes. "Only, a coward," Ke said, "would turn his back on the whole business." She stepped in front of him and held his arms, forcing him to look at her. "Salty—Salty . . . Why, frou'ro really upset, aren't you?" "Certainly I am. What did you •xpect? "Of course," she said slowly. "What should I expect? That's 1(jic \*;ry reason I fell in love Iritij you.' 'You lullicr?" "Ccrlainly I mean grandtnlhcr!" "But what is there lo do?" "If we could only persuade her to tell us \vho he was/' he iniil- lercd. "Why do you care so much who my divindfallier was?" said Vicky, trying lo be reasonable. "Perhaps if we ever found out we'd be sorry, lie mi^hl be someone you wouldn't like at all." "That's betlcr than not knowing." "But why? It still wouldn't clinncc anything. I had another grandfather, you know, and he. was au English solicitor named Jenkins. Very respectable. Won't he do?" "But n person is supposed to have two," Sally objected. They walked nloni; in gloom} silence for some time. Vicky had her emotions under contro after a while, and benan, alioos unconsciously, to use Ihc illogica feminine wiles which uame. to hm like second nature. "Probably we'd just betlcr cal the whole thing off," she said i a low voice, acting a lillle and no expecting to be luken literally, mean—not net married at nil." She was prcr.-arcd for protcsla lions of his love and assurance Hint nothing else really matterct Instead lie demanded rouahly "You love me, don't YOU?" You know I do. But since we seem lo have hit a snag—why, perhaps we'd belter just not try to get married." This should have clinched it and brought on Ihc speech about the world well lost for love and what did Ihc world's o*/:r.^"i'i matter anyhow, but lo her surprise he stopped nnd looked into her lace in utter astonishment. , Vickv r nc," he said c:t?n» estly. i"You couldn't mean that!" "Why not? Everybody doesn't have lo gel married." He gave a long whistle. "Well! This is the first lime I've ever faced just this kind of a situation, don't ciuito know how to handlo it, frankly. Having once asked you lo marry me, I just couldn't— well, I couldn't just have an affair with you." An alTair had been the- furthest thing from Vicky's thoughts, as she was quite well awaro an alUiir was not the shortest cut to the altar. Ills interpretation of her remarks was slow to dawn on her. She stared at him in turn. "Do you mean to say you thought—? Did you think I was making dishonorable advances to you? Well, ttial is really funny!" The impossibility of continuing ueh a futile conversation ovcr- ame her and she wheeled wilh- ut a word, starling back in. the ircclioti of home, lie ran after or, appalled. "Vicky, I'm so sorry. Viclty, lease -" "Don't speak to me," slut wli'.s- icrcd, shaking olT his arm. "Flint lung I know you'll be asking me 0 go oil with you for the week end." Salty \vas genuinely horrified. 'Vicky, darling, don't lake it like liis! 1 simply misunderstood you. You said you loved me, but that you wouldn't marry me, so 1—" 'When did I ever say 1 wouldn't marry you?" she shnulcd. 'You certainly gave that impression." She swung to faco him. "If I gave tliat impression, that's just line, because Ihc more I think about it Hie mote I Ihink that's just the impression I waul to give. 1 have sonic yirkle, loo, Salty Basol!" "Arc you turning me dawn?.* lie yelled. "Arc you proposing?" "Yes!" "Then yes! I'm turning down!" She sriuarcd around and loft him standing in Uic middle ol thu road.
