Roger, I thought one was never coming." Roger said he too had been beginning to get anxioue. "You think we'll catch the 'plane now?" He glanced at his watch, frown wrinkling his brows. "1 hope so." « was nearly 2:45 by the time they reached the hotel. In a moment they were in and out again with their cases and flinging them into a taxi. Charlotte and Dwight Breeden had. of course, gone on. The man at the reception desk had told them that as they'd dashed past him. "Than* heaven, I paid my D iH and packed this morning," said Roger. "I wonder it I dare tell this taxunan to drive any faster?" Patience gave a little shudder. 'Her nerves, she was finding weren't quite what they had been ;smce that lorry had come out of thai side road so disastrously! In fatt she was quite frankly terrified. A* it was he seemed to be taking them aiong at a hair- raising speed. "I^think he's going as fast as he can,' she said. And then suddenly something struck her. Something that she hadn't noticed before. "Roger, what's happening to the weather?" "It's not looking too good. Is H?" Dark clouds lay low in the sky. A gusty wind seemed to be rising. "Flying won't be too pleasant, will it?" Patience said timorously. "They won't take off if it's too bud." She wondered which would be the lesser of two evils. And decided that isf they could still catch thf 'plane she'd rather risk the journey. The thought ot not being ther« at the barrier to meet her aunts was .even more frightening. "What's th« time, Roger?" Roger's hand covered hers. "Darling, you keep asking me that! It won't stand itill, I'm afraid." > "I'm sorry. I just can't help K. Roger, supposing we do miss the 'plane?" "Even If that happen, the world wouldn't come to an end." JJOW could he be expected to understand how terribly important H wa« she should get there? H wouldn't matter to him of course. He'd not got an Aunt Helen and an Aunt Alice wailing to meet him at the barrier in time to catch the 6:30. "Look, there's the airport," said Roger. "Right at the end ot the road." But already above them a plane was circling in the sky. They could hear the roar ot its engines Patience leaned out of the window watching H, her heart full o< misgiving. The driver swung In through the wide gates. He brought hi» cab to a standstill. They dashed out and raced towards the tarmac. But there were only'two 'planes there, and it was clear that neither was about to set out on a journey. Roger looked around and found an official. He made swift inquiries. The 3 o'clock 'plan* to London? . 'It's just taken oft, Monsieur." 'Oh, Roger, Roger, what shall I do?" gasped Patience. "Is there another one?" asked Roger. "It's most important thii young lady and I should get back. We had reservation* on the 3 o'clock. The man shook his head. "I'm very sorry, Monsieur. That will, I'm afraid, be the last 'plane aWay today." He looked at the sky dolefully, and back again at *oger and gestured with his lands. "The weather. Our reports are not good. It may change, of course, but I do not think it Is very !ik«\-. Patlence's heart shook. "Roger, we mm* g«t b«ek," ah* said desperately. Roger looked at the official. "Is there any chance o* hirini • private 'plane?" Again the man shook hii head. He was Indeed very sorry. It was most unfortunate thnt they had not boon there just a few minute* sooner. v • • . han(5 on Patien^'i We'll have to go JJOGER put i arm. "We' way, darling. Train and I'm afraid, are our only other boat, hope. "But it'll lake so long." Their taxi driver, they found. had been waiting k> set what had happened. "Take us to Cook's," said Roger. 'We'll go straight t o them and see which is the quickest rout* to take." Patience sat back ngnin In her corner. Her hands clenched and unclenched in her lap, she wished —oh, how much she wished H!— that she'd never agreed to come to Paris. 'Roger, what can w« do?" 'Well, first we'H see just how soon we can get there." "How soon do you think KH be?" "I'm afraid it'H mean traveling by night. Probably Le Havre to Southampton or th* Newhaven- Dieppe route." "And they take a long while." "Quite a time.", "Oh Roger!" ' Roger drew her hand through his arm. "Darling, don't worry too terribly. We'll get out o< Ihia ail right Well wire Charlotte, Ip the flat—-she said she was going there before she went to the theater—and tell her to hold the fort as tactfully as possible H your aunts contact her. And once we're back—I know, I'll see them with you, and help you to explain what lappened. I'll take all the blame." :Ie smiled down at her reassuringly: "Darling, don't took so ragic.
