Suddenly Syrie's words came echoing back with new force: "They 'were parted through a tragic misunderstanding. Piers is a one-woman man." It Isn't true! she thought desperately. Not Syrie. Not Jon's wife. Then from outside the window a woman's voice, low and urgent spoke softly and clearly: "It will be ghastly If Jon tells her." She swung round swifUy. as through the aperture of the open glass doors Piers and Syrie came in together from the darkness out- side. Seeing that there was someone in the room, the two who had en vercd stopped dead, Syrie's han< went out. catching her com pan ion's; and so for a split second the; stood. Seeing them there with the In tlmacy of the night behind them something wild and alien to tier nature blazed up in Clemency She was in no state to analyz the feelin g or to recognize th estructlve power ot iertJousy bui :i thai she nad neard within this si hour came rushing upon ber, :aring ner heart and ner mind. s she gazed al the man she loved the woman she had been told e loved, something snapped in So It's true—what Jon told me." he hardly recognized net own oice. it sccmeo as though it must >e someone else who was speak- ng. some other girl whose whole fe'had been shattered Into UtUe leces about her •^Clemency—* Piers moved iviftly across to her; but when ne 'oiild nave taken her hand she rew back "Dont touch me, please."

She said: **1 came to look for ou, to tell you that Jon could not stay under your root any onger, because he had lied about ou wickedly." "Well." Piers was dangerously quiet. "What did be say about me?" "That—* She paused, fighting !or self-control; then forcing herself to go on; "That you were In ,ove with his wife, that you arought her here, because—* • • * WTf TOLD you so," said Syrl without moving. "1 Knew that .ne would tell ner—" Sku spread her nands in a small, hope less gesture, adding half to herself "It's unfair that he should mak her pay—" And then in a toude tone: "Clemency, listen to m To have Syne, of all people offer her an "explanation" of wha wab quite impossible to explain seemed veritably the last straw It snapped the Bnai thread of Clemency's endurance- WiLb a muffled cry T she brushed past Piers and before ne could stop her, she had wrenched open the oor and rushed out ot the room Piers would nave followed, but yrte caught hold of hiv arm.

He made no reply, and alter a moment she went out of the room shutting the door behind her. • • • OY the time Clemency had ^ reached the bottom ot the stairs again, that wave of passionate resentment had become • ' dull, searing pain. Holding on to the banisters she dragged berseJt upstairs, listening oh every step fot the study door to open, knowing the feeling to be wild and irrational, she still hoped that perhaps Piers would follow bet. She longed to feel his arms about her,' to Bear him deny th« truth of what Jon had said, what those heart-breaking moments 1usi past had forced her to believe With Syrie there, ail Horrible things had seemed possible.
