I really can't go into details of the scene she marriage, while Clemency listened intently. j "Syrie had never attempted to make the marriage a success. Jon had always been a playboy and she had never tried to moke him anything else. She Knew oJ his hereditary weakness for alcohol which might come out in him. yet when he was utterly miserable and worried about money, she never attempted to stop him (rom drinking too much. I have heard it said she encouraged him. "Now she wanted a divorce, but 1 was determined she shouldn't shelve her responsibilities, and that Jon should have a chance. I reminded her oJ her lack of. money. She might marry again and she might not. I suggested that I pay their debts, give them a home and allow them an income it Jon would pull himself together. The only condition was that Syrie stayed with him. "1 ought to have known when she consented that there was mischief in her mind. I've come to the conclusion that I am rather naive in some twitched. ways." His lips . "Well, Jon was on his mettle, ne and I were friends again in the old way.' He was ready to fight, 1 to help him. Within a few months he had stopped drinking altogether. But Syrie was neither happy nor satisfied. I did not realize what she was getting at. I . liked to ignore the fact of her existence as much as possible, which was exactly what she did not want me to do." • • • OE paused, looking down at the i - 1 glowing end of his cigarel, an expression of intense distaste on his face. "Tilings came to a climax one night \7hen t was sitting up very late in my study. 1 was reading a book 1 particularly wantec to 8n- ish when Syrie came in. She said she couldn't sleep and had come walked in. He was—is still—crazy about her. and he LS of a naturally jealous disposition. 1 must confess the situation was a compromising one, and open to—misconstruction." His mouth twisted biL- lerly. 'Jon ought to have known me better—he admitted that (or the lirst time today. But Syrie was desperate; she hated her husband, and imagined that she was still in love with me." 'But whj did he stay here if he believed lhat?" Clemency asked. 'He thought that if he went, she end 1 would remain here together. Nothing would convince him that I didn't want her. 1 was harder, more bitter than I had ever been. "1 reminded him or IJaba. I said that the child ought not to be marJc to pay lor others' mistakes. As for Syrie. she .had been glad enough to remain at the beginning. "But she had reckoned without her host. She soon wanted to go, and for the second time I let my anger, my desire to make her pay in the only way 1 knew how, cloud my judgment. "I meant to punish Syrie. I succeeded in making ll-.e knife turn on you. Has it all been destroyed, Clemency?" He stood looking down at her. She was silent for a moment, studying the handsome, unhappy face above her. Then she shook her head. "No." she said, "nothing could really do that, as long as—it is me you love." She held out her hand and. as he took it, drew him down beside her. * * • CYRIE was in the night nursery when alter dinner that evening Clemency passed through, ready to go for a drive with Piers. Syrie glanced at Clemency unsmilingly. and then looked down at the magazine in her hands. She bad done all that was necessary; it was not In her to ask forgiveness—or try to explain away her conduct All prelense of any friendly feeling was finished between them. She hnd more reason to be bitter than Clemency bad- she had lost. But, thought Clemency as she went downstairs, she will always :iate me. Piers was waiting outside with the car. He helped her in and, taking the wheel beside her, drove off. They had traveled even farther from tile house than that ttrst time, when Piers stopped the car. "I don't feel thai we have really been alone for a moment all day until now. my precious." he said. "1 wish there were a ten! here in the desert, and 1 had the right to keep you In it—just you and I, and he damed to the rest of the world! Tomorrow 1 am going to take you into Biskra. 1 phoned Mrs. Sanderson this evening that you were coming, and you are to slay with them until we an married. 1 shall put up at the hole). We'll leave Red Aloes to the Jon Amberlcy family at present—as soon as Baba is well enough to be moved. t?iey are going." "Oh. Piers, what about them?" she asked. "Can they ever—mend things?" "Goodness alone knows!" said Piers. They did not speak ol Syrie. Obviously she was Jon's problem. They had at least decided to start on the new road together. "If you can bear to go back to Hed Aloes aftei our honeymoon, we shall have the house to ourselves," said Piers. "11 you hate the place—" "No. 1 couldnt hate ft!' she exclaimed. "1 found you there, and I shall always feel it is our home. We can exorcise the ghosts." His arm about her. he took her hand and kissed the finger where the temporary .engagement diamonds shone again. 3ut when he would have drawn her closer, she held him off a little, her other hand against his shoulder. He looked dawn at her a moment; then: "I'm all for laying ghosts." he said, "with bell, book, and candle."
