H "Ah, but you didn't seem at nil strange. I'd seen you so often traveling down in the same carriage." "Oh! So you had noticed me?" "But of course." "Mouse, you're adorable! Gosh, (hat's made you go quite pink!" "pHE guard blew his whistle. She leaned out of the window im- ^ulsiveiy, holding out her hand •-o him. "Goodby, and thank you." He. ran along the troin as It began to move slowly down the platform. "Mouse?" he called. "Well?" "I suppose you know Tm to love with you?" She gasped. She didn't know what to say to him. She just stood there at the window watching him waving to him as at last he stopped running, her heart thump- Ing madly. Then she sank down in the seat wondering if she were dreaming. She sat very still her hands folded in her lap. trying to quiet down a little. Wa* this the way her mother had felt when first she'd met her father? Well she, her daughter, knew what had happened. She'd run away. Been cut off completely by her family Been deserted by her lover and left to die of a broken heart. Shouldn't that be a warning to Oh, U only her mother had ived so that she. Patience, could liavc grown up with her to guide tier! She'd have understood that a time was bound to come when something like this would happen How could Aunt Helen and Aunt Alice be expected to know the way she was feeling? They were Iwo old maids. They'd probably neither of them ever been in love In their lives. i |'THEY were In the sitting-room when she gol In, silling In their | cuslomary chairs either side ol 1 tlie fire. Two middle-need spinsters, neatly dressed, with kindly blue eyes and softly ipeakmg voices. Except perhaps Aunt Helen's which on occasions could have an edge to It, Just as nef eyes too could flash sparks It something happened to annoy ner. They were flashing sparks now at Patience, still In a daze, was suddenly remembering that she'd not got the library book. "But, dear child, when did you last have it?" asked Aunt Alice mildly. "It's not like you to lost things." 'It's really most tiresome of you," said Aunt Helen sternly. "The very thing I sent you Into Stortford to get." "I know, Aunt Helen. I truly am most terribly sorry. I'm afraid I must have left It in the train." The elder Miss Melville made a clicking sound of disapproval. "I must say I (eel most vexed about it." Her aunt looked at her more closely. "You're looking very flushed. Why is that, I wonder?" "Perhap« because I've been hurrying." 'Patience denr, your eyes are very bright," sa)d her Aunt Alice, peering at her anxiously over the top of her steel-rimmed spectacles. "Helen, you don't think she'i got a temperature? I really do think the dear child looks Quite feverish." Patience moved towards the door. She said she was perfectly well. No, of course there was nothing wrong with Her. "I think perhaps a hot drink and an early night might be a good Idea," said her Aunt Alice who was never In bed a moment later than 10 whatever might bap- pen. r Patience slid from the room and prayed that when she came down again they would question her no further. But she'd stay upstairs for a litUe while. She wanted to be alone. To go over ft all again To savor the wonder of It all. The joy. To turn over in ner mind how she could possibly manage to meet him. in Stortford again next Saturday. <To Be Continued) «rt .
