He went, leaving her standing there alone in the corridor. Tear: blinded her eyes. She tried to fight against them hut they poured down Her cheeks. She didn't back 19 the carriage. She slow there in the corridor through th entire journey. As the train drew carer to Oakley she thought: "lie von't let me go like this. He an't if he really loves me." But he station came am he made no love to speak any further to her. She got out and walked slowly own the platform. She took her 'icycle from the shed and rode lome knowing that now it was e.illy over. She didn't know quile what It was she'd expected, what he'd hoped might possibly happen. But she'd not dreamed it would b« quite like this. That they'd quarrel the way they had. She opened the front door and wont into the sitting room. There sat her aunts, one cilher aide of he fireplace. "I thought I'd just let you know '. was back. Aunt Helen." Her aunt put down her mending 'or a momcnL "Did you have an Interesting day at Ihe academy, dear?" "Yes, thank you. Aunt Helen. "How are you getting on with your work?" "Very well." That was all.
