ItAvas good to rest. In the hack of her mind, ns she relaxed, was a little nagging consciousness that she'might have secured Vicky's happiness at the price of her own soul, and yet—she had not lied, she .had not actually told an untruth. Godfrey's mother hnd been named Ida Victoria Jubb Thus reminded of Godfrey, she rang for Bridget and asked to havc;him sent np. She must in- sureTlis silence. When he strolled into her prcs ence, .unaffected by the events o the day and self-assured as ever she sighed-with impatience. Trul "It mailers a very great deal, am through. Through with you, t last! I will not stand one more isult or one more evasion. You re to promise solemnly that you vill nc,ver mention .your vclntion- hip to Vicky—or you are to leave his house today and never re- ucs." Melodramatic," ho rmirmured. 'Anything you wish, my dear. I lave never \vanted to do otherwise than make you happy—" "Promise?" "Very well, my dear, I promise." Sophie collapsed., "And now— please, please—leave me alone." The door closed behind him and she sank back OH her chaise, sobbing. She was through with him she W<s atoning now lor what ever she owed him! "Come in, Godfrey. Shut th door."" He did so. "1 have been io see Mrs. Bagot. Voting Salty and Victoria are to' be rharricd'as soon as possible." Godfrey loolced incredulous. "I must say," he began, "you seem to have taken matters out o£ my hands entirely. I/am, after all, the child's grandfa£her." r "Stop!" she cried, facing him with a hand raised. "Ysil are not her- grandfather!" •"Come,, come," he protested, "when you wanted a lather for our: child I would do quite well enough. You can't change about now because for some reason it happens to suit your convenience—" ,"How dare you!" she exclaimed fixing him with burning eyes "If-you even menlion Vicky's ancestry again I shall turn you out lock, stock; and barrel. Ami 1 shal cut you of£ without a cent in my will.* ' He looked frightened and wary "Don't get sr> upset. What does i matter, my dear?" nt last! She had sent him out of her life, out of her heart, laid his ghost, nt last, at last! Hoi- heart knew now what, her mind had always known: that he had never been worth one salt tear. * « * 'T'HERTi was » knock on Ihc door -*- and Sir Charles's voice risk- ing'it Madame we're receiving. "What is it, Sir Charles?" "Mr. Admri Bagot is downstairs to sec you." Sophie gave'Her toilette a hasty glance and hurried down. She found Adam Bagot in the drawing room standing in front of the portrait of Juliet, leaning on his cane, looking very distinguished n his spare, b*iy way. He greeted her with his usual pur«-- ilious and rather long-winded courtesy. The formalities taken care of he said, "Serve her right it Victoria refused to make up young Salty now." Sophie knew at once that "her 1 was Mrs. Bagot. "Vicky won't refuse," she said. "She was half sick with love." She sighed, indicating a place for lam beside her on the sofa. "It's a good match," the old nentleman snid. "Bring > new blood into the family." "Yes," agreed Sophie. "A'.id such blood, loo!" She looked sidewise nt Adam with n twinkle in her eye and he gove her a solcrm. wink. They both laughed aloud. "The money, at any rate," she added, "is legitimate. I was married to Max." "The money w.ill not corro amiss," said Adam. "Yes, it is 'a splendid match, and a Rreat Kalis- faction lo me." He fixed her with his fierce, sunken eyes. "As you can well understand, Sophie, I need not tcil you why." Sophie clasped her hands at her breast. She felt suddenly giddy, as if she might be going lo faint. "They must not make the same mistake we did." Was it n mistake, Adnm?" she asked, very low, knowing beyond doubt that the final piece was being tilted into the pattern of. her past. "Not to get married was n mistake, I mean." They looked at each oilier. "I didn'l know you ever wanted lo marry me," she said simply. "I was only sixteen, I came from the wrong side of tho tracks—" i "So you do remember!" She nodded. "Certainly I remember! After all—" she laughed shakily—"yon were what is known as 'my first false step.' No woman could ever forget what happened o her at sixteen." "I, too," he assured her solemnly, "have never forgotten, for forgiven myself. That is why have never married.
