She'd go,as usual to the place round the 'corner. Onlcs's— No. Roger Dickson wouldn't be there, ol course. He'd not been serioud when he'd said that he'd mwt tm today, Monday. She hoped not at any raU. She didn't want V> see him. Or did the? She wasn't altogether sure. "Nearly lunch-time," said Peggy Cooper, tbt girl sitting next to her. "I know." "Coming round the corner?" "I think so." The clock .truck one. The Frenchwoman teaching them, an underling oJ Madame GiranJ's, ro»e to her feet. "That will be all (or this morning." There was a shuttling o( chairs. Th« girls trooped from the room. 1 Big girls, small girU. young girlj, and not so young girli. They made their way to the cloakroom. They fought for room before the rattier inadequate mirrors. Peggy was chattering as usual. Today it was about a new boyfriend, k went on and on whilst made up her lace and eached tor her hat. She was still full of him as they emerged from the cloakroom. 'I'm really la love this time. Patience." "That's what you laid lesi than a month ago." "Ah. but this is different. One can always tell. He really u wonderful. He's 3 bit like Roger Dickson. You know. Th« musical comedy star." t • • • JT was at that moment that Patience saw him. He was standing on the opposite side of the road watching the girls troop out of the academy. Peggy and she were still far hack in the doorway and she knew he hadn't yet seen her. Her heart shook. On an impulse she grabbed Peggy by the arm. "Let's go out the back way. It's nearer." Peggy allowed herself to be turned around. Though she couldn't 'think , why Patience should say the back entrance was nearer. Stil! so long ss she could talk about Jimmy. . .. Patience found Roger had been inquiring for her when she returned to the academy. A girl in her class rushed up to her. "D'you know who's been asking for you?" *Who?" asked Patience, ru, O wing perfectly well. "Roger Dickson! Gosh, I nearly dropped down dead when I saw him. fancy you knowing him!" Peggy stared at ber. "Why Patience, you dark horse! 1 told you Jimmy wa« like him and you didn't say you knew him." The girls looked at her with new interest Little Patience Mond with a matinee idol trailing afier her. Roger Dickson, too, of all peoplel Patience was aware of their eye* on her as the afternoon progressed. Girls wuo'd hitherto not noticed nor seemed now only too ready to he fricn'dly. She supposed they were hoping that one dnj Roger would be again walling there outside the academy, and that she'd introduce him to them. But he didn't come «ny more. • • « FOHTNIGHT slipped by nnd one morning there was a letter from Charlotte beside her breakfast plate. She opened and read it, her heart racing. Charlotle wrote lo say that the first night of the new sho« was the following Wednesday. "Darling, you must come. There's going lo b< a party on the stage afterwards. I know you'll enjoy it Roger suggesU you go wilh him and says he'll pick you up here at the flat. Yes, I'm In • flat of my own now. I've taken it (urnished and it's terribly nice. I want you to come and stay her* often. But first let's get the opening night over. I'm writing to Aunt Helen by this post asking her to let you come. It's a bit of a goo-goo lelter. full of how I promise to look afler you . . ." There was • postscript »o the, effect that Charlotte would leave an evening dress out for her Her maid. Elizabeth, would be there and would help her to get ready She herself would be at the theater. Patience glanced at her Aunt Helen.. She'd not opened Charlotte's lelter yet. It was next on Ihe little pile beside her plate. And now she was reaching for it Patience sent, up a silent prayer. "I've a letter here from Charlotte. Patience; she wants you to go to the opening performance ol her new show." "I know. She's written »o me, too." "1 expect you'd like Vo, wouldn't you?" "Oh yes, indeed I would. She suggests 1 stay the night with her." "Yes, so she tells me." Patience's breath caught ki h«r ttiroat "1 ma) go, mayn't 1, AunI Helen?" "Yes, child. I see no reason why you shouldn't," her AunI Hel«£ miraculously replied. (To Be Continued) The word cuttle, now used to describe domestic members of the ox family, orlginslly meant property or wealth.
