What'll happen to her. now that Piers is going to give up playing godfather to us all?" "You have no right to talk about Piers like that." said Clemency "I've a right to talk about him any way 1 like." Jon retorted. "And he's goi no right |o ask a nice, decent girl Like you to marry him." - Some undertone In Jon Amberley's words—which were unpleasant enough by themselves— stung Clemency to anger. It was no use arguing wi(h him when he wa« like this. Although her Indignation was mounting she was able to realize this much. "Will you please go away?" she said. "And we will not discuss Fici-s."Wont we?" He rose, looking down it her. "1 don't know. I like you, Clemency, and 1 think you ought to Know. Do you Know the only man my wile ever loved —if she's capable of loving? Too funny—it's Piers." "Are you mad?" she demanded. "No. dear Only a little drunk. And drunken men tell the truth. You'd better Know Did no one ever tell you that Syrie and Piers were once engaged?" Clemency stared at him. wide- eyed. Syric and Piers! Her lips formed the names but no sound came. Ue nodded. "Sure. He was crazy about her," "Well—what of it? That must have been a long time ago." "Yes, (t was. She married me. And then." a vicious note like the upward stab ol a knife came Into his voice "Poor fool—me! 1 didn't know And then he took her Daclt. What ito you think he brought us here for? Because he loved my wife—because he meant to nave her back and he got her back." "It's a lie!" She faced him. while and shaken. "You Know why he brought you Here—to help you —to light (or you." " To —" he laughed. "No, I won't use ugly words 10 you. I believed that. And then J lound out. 1 asked her and she told me. (t had always ocen Piers. Drink, do 1? Any reason why 1 shouldn't?

"Forget iC' he said. "Maybe It's all over." 'Get out." She turned and left him. leeliug she could not breathe the same air. Going through the night nursery swiilly she stood In the darkness ol her own room, her hands clenched al her sides. She felt numbed—as LI someone had struck ner a stunning blow. And Lhcn suddenly sanity seemed to Dow back to her Maybe it WM tnie that Syrie and Piers had once been engaged. Even that Syrie still c.ircd Wr.F tha' »hv she had :ncd to Keep iway from him? She could not have him, bill she lid not menu anyone else to. That would be like Syrie. Cut Piers—his brother's wife? Never! Never! All her fierce love and loyaltj •ose un in her. And then a wave jf lury agninsl Jon. Piers musl he told of what he was accused. Jon should not stay under this rool another moment. She called Justine to watch Baba and then Clemency forced herself to walk steadily downstairs. She met Ahmed in the hall Is Colonel Ambcrley In his study? 1 ' "Yes.* 1 the man told her. She tapped on Piers' door. Receiving no answer, she opened the door and went into the room- The desk lamp was burning, his fountain pen lay on the blotter There was a half-finished cup ol codee— oil the signs that he would be back any moment. She drew » deep breath. Naturally she was upseu but as lor believing a word Jon had said- Piers must be told, though: this kind of calumny could not stay just here. LOG fire had been tighter! in the fireplace and as she moved across to it she saw his silver ciga- rel case on a low table. That case which he had cared for enough always to carry, seemed pan ol him. She picked it up instinctively, holding it In Uie curve of her hand. She would smoke while ihe waited. «he decided. It would soothe her and she would be able to tell Piers more calmly what she had come to say. Firsi she must get one thing clear if be Qao been engaged to Syrie, that was over long ago. Why. Piers obviously didn't like Syrtel Clemency opened the cigaref case It was empty and the engraved insmpuon which she haa noticed that night ta the car ana had Deen unable to decipher seemed to leap up at her In the strong light ol the desk lamp: "PIERS FROM SYE1E.
