On this point her aunt* were always most insistent ; "Enjoying your magazine?" Her head disappeared behind ft. Paul Taylor sighed.

H«ir devoid of > perm though K curled nicely on its own, as l» »»w when occasionally sht took her hat off. But nothing smart about it No upward sweep or clustering curls. Patience turned a page. No, sh« came from a very nice home, although a very strict one She'd a shrewd suspicion it was almost unique. She wondered sometimes^if there could be anywhere in the whole of England two women quite so old-fashionec as the two maiden aunts to whom she was devoted and who'd brought her up since childhood an Not that she minded. She'd „, idea she »ns possibly a little old- fashioned herself. She supposed it must be a matler of upbringing She wondered if a day would come when she'd ever change. When she'd be more like the other girls she met 'at the dressmaking classes. Learn to use make-up. To wear smart clothes. To go out wilh boy-friends. She sighed involuntarily. It seemed so unlikely. Her aunts disapproved of makeup. They (iked her to be nicely and quietly dressed, they always told her. And as for boy-friends • • • Plenty of time for them a little later'on. One day someone would come along to whom she'd se properly introduced. After all she was still very young. Twenty? What was thJt? Why, to them still she was very much o t a baby.' ^ Broxbourne four people got out. Patience shifted in her seat. There was more room now. She laid aside her magazine. "That's better," said Paul. "It's not much fun, is it, when it's quite to crowded?" "No," said Patience. Paul wished the carriage would empty altogether. Then, hang it all, he'd Insist on her talking to nm. Bm there was a parson in he opposite corner »nd a fu=sy old lady .long the seat from him. He d no wish to get the, snub direct in public. Burnt Mm came "Comic name for a place, isn't t?" he said as Uie train started gain. 'Yes, said Patience , Paul »ighed. Dumb, he thought dly, »nd not even beautiful. led gwe it up. It was altogether oo much like hard work. There 'as a snappy little blonde that caught this train every night. Par better look to her to help him while away the time on the journey. The train ambled oh. She'd be getting out at the next station. He'd still got three more to go. So had the snappy blonde for that matter. In fact she, tt seemed, lived further down the line than he did. And then there was a jerk. The train moved forward slowly. Jerked again and then stopped. The old lady sat forward and peered out of the window. "Are we In a station?" i T don't think so." said Paul, j The parson looked at his wafch and said he hoped llw delay wouldn't be a long one. "I expect we'll be oft again In' a jninulc," said Paul cheerfully. ' RUT a quarier-of-an-liour later the train was still stationary. 1 And now heads were peering'out! of carriages. People were talking' amongst themselves. SomelhinE had gone wrong. The hold-up might prove a long one. Tlie euard : came down the train. There'd: been an accident, he was telling', the passengers, at a level crossing a short distance further along the line. No, he couldn't tel\ how long it would be before they'd be' able to go on again. "How far to Oakley?" called 1 Paul, knowing it was her station. "Barely a. mile." Carriijge doors opened here and there. The passengers for Oakley were clearly deciding that they might as well walk on rather than wait in the train indefinitely., It was a clear moonlit night. Patience wondered r.hat to do about it. If the delay were really a long one, Aunt Helen and Aunt Alice would begin to worry as to what had happened to her. They always in a' little bit of a — KT until she got safely in, still—quite absurdly, of course — wondering whether it had been really wis« to allow her to go oft by herself three day« a week to London. "I'll walk along with you," taid Paul. Patience looked at him. "But you don't get out at Oakley." "That's all right. I'll hang on cre and pick this train Up when; it comes along eventually. might bitch-hike home." Paul opened the carriage dborj rlc'd an idea it was now or never.) Ic got out, 1 jumping down onto* .
