XXDC PLEMENCY went to the night nursery, glad of the dim light os she thanked Justine tor watching Baba The Frenchwoman would have lingered to chat, out it was manifestly impossible at the sleeping child's bedside Justin* murmured that the little on* seemed feverish, and left almost at once Clemency stood by the cot. her clenched liands pressed ' tightly against der breast, conscjou* of that awfuJ bruised feeling inside her The minutes passed without her being aware o* their passing. - v untU the sound of someone, mov- "r.lng In the oursery._.roused fter >' "Husbl" Clemency warned tn a ' P.«'ck, urgent whisper as the com, municating door was pushed open From (be Ughted room behind. Syrie beckoned For a moment Clemency was filled with a flera • resentment again.'rt that summons. : then she went through into Uae : other room. '•• "You look ghastly!" exclaimed : Syrie. "Dont you want something . to pul) yoursell togetherT* I "No, tharut you." Clemency replied, "You wanted to speak lo ! me?" "Yes. Importantly Sit down, please " Clemency sat on a chair next to the table, her eyes on Syrte's face as the other remained standing burst out: "1 could kill Jon! Of course I felt sure that he would make mischief He ha! made himself crazy with jealousy of Piers." "Is il true." asked Clemency. that you and Piers were engaged beiore — " 'Before I met Jon Yes." Syrie nodded "But thai was long ago And — whatever tins oeen between us is finished and done with I wish you would understand that-* She spoke with quirk urgency "Just what did Jon tell you?" she asked. That Piers brought him here because he wanted you near him." Saying liie thing made it worse — if thai was possible. "Is that Lrue'" she neard Herself asking Syrie looked at her and turned her eyes auickly awny "Jon was drunk. I suppose You must know he drinks." lemency rose her low voice suddenly strong and steady "I don't care aboul that I want to know how much ol the truth he spoke," "Listen." Syrie urged. "I came here to try to make you believe how little it all mattered. It'« been over and finished with tor > long time- I hated you — hut I know I've- got to give him up to you. He loves you — really ' You're a new beginning for him." Every carefully chosen sentence — those sentences which seemed to come so spontaneously — struck 3 fresh Knife Into her Ustcner't heart "My dear " she said, ner great eyes suddenly tilling with tears, "men are — men! 1 suppose 1 was really to blame After all. I married Jon: but you dont know how sickening he !». now weak And Piers-- Oh! 1 suppose I ought to nave insisted oo going away. but — you know what it means to love Pier»7" your "Then—It's tniel Re w»i [over? Oh—* H was a cry from the heart. Syrie simply repeated obstinately, her eyes oo the floor: ''I tell you, it's all over now— • II was over months ago. Before you came here." 'What (Iocs that matter—11 h once existed? How could you? How could you both?" Withoul waiting lor a reply to the question. Clemency went bank Into the night nursery and through to her own roo to. 'J'WICE during the night Clemency had gone In to Baba. hear. ing the child tossing and turning. Once Baba nad coughed tiersell awake, but she grew quieter after Clemency gave her a dose at the simple soothing syrup that «raj always kept In the nursery cupboard. • Each time Clemency had returned to her room and flung herself down on the bed again. Now at last she knew that the ghastly night was past and dawn was here Yet she dreaded the day, even more. Bruised, shamed and humiliated, the one clear thought In her mind was that she must get away trora nerc at once. To remain under this roof after what she had learned, was impossible: the very thought ol seeing Piers terrified her That Piers, whom she had believed to be everything ane «nd splendid, should have done thii thing was Incredible and unforgivable Yet she knew that she loved Piers and would love him u tonj M he lived, even though she did no' want to face him, would oav« given anything not to bave see* him again Once more that panicky desire to fly clutched hold at her But where to, and bowT Sitting up and pushing the hair baclt from net face she looked at the diamond circlet on her finger The symbol of a dream that was over She pulled It oB and sat wiUi it tn the palm of her band.
