Your Aunl Alic« and 1 have been waiting tiere lor som« time.* \ Charlotte tossed off her hat and coat, and flung them at Elizabeth at she entered the room with another cup and saucer. "Put those away for me, Elizabeth, and put out my black <Jres» will you? I've exactly a quarter- ot-an-hour Aunt Helen. Aunl Alice—I'm so terribly sorry to be in th« rush." "Charlotte, where'i Patieneet" demanded Mis« Helen. "Excuse me one moment. Auoi Helen." Charlotte tore open the telegram, read it quickly, and then looked up at her aunt with an apologetic smile: "I'm to sorry, Aunt Helen, what were you MT- ing?" "I asked yem wher« Patience wa«. 1 want to know why she didn't go as usual to the Academy." Charlotte looked at them unflinchingly. She hadn't Patience's scruples regarding speaking the truth. Roger had wired her to hold the lort aj bett sHe could and. angry though she wa» with both him »nd Patience, she'd do the best sh« could under th« circumstance*. She dropped down on a chair and poured herself some tea. She said airily that they'd decided— . well, it was she, of course, who'd really decided—that London was no place for the week-end. It was far too hot. She smiled from one lady to the other and said she was sure they would both agree with iier. "And then some friends of mine who've got a houseboat between Oxford and Henley tang me up and asked me to lake Patience down. 1 thought it was a wonder- ful idea for iu to go. They're very charming people. Aunt Helen. You'd like them, and approve of Lhem, 1 f««l sure.• - • • • "•""THAT te *wnethin« at which you couldn't po«sibly be a judge, Charlotte. And if you went down to this houieboat—may 1 ask why Patienct didn't return thi« morning to go to her dressmaking classes as usual?" Charlotte smiled dlsarmlngly "I'm afraid that was entirely my fault. You see. 1 wasn't coming hack till later in the day. And Patsy—she's one of the daughters —has a birthday. There were a lot ol people staying there for it, and tonight she's having a party. Patience and she got on so well together I Just insisted Patience should stay on for it She'» returning first thing in the morning." Miss Helen rose to her feet "I'm sorry, Charlotte, to have to say HIM, but after what has happened 1 shall hav* to forbid Patience to come and Way with you here any more. Naturally U you care to come and visit her In Ihe country that's another matter. But it seems to me that when she is with you she loses alt sense of duty." Charlotte felt a sudden anger surge through her. For a long while she'd been wishing Patience would stand up to Aunt Helen. And thinking how singularly spineless she was not to do so. Well, if .Patience wouldn't tell her aunt what she thought of her, here at least was her own opportunity. "I resent your saying that. Aunt Helen. 1 consider it most unfair." "I'm not interested in your opinion, Charlotte. Alice, we'll be leaving." - ^ But Charlotte barred their way. "It doesn't occur to you both that Patience needs a little fun occasionally? That it's quite ab- suid the way you try and restrict her? Good hcaveru, ih« mlghl b« Living in In* 1880'sl" "I think you forget yourself. Charlotte." said Miss Helen in a frozen voice, "J OONT. I'tlUnk'you're a sclJ i»h old woman, and you re trying to make Aunt Alice ai bad. I'm heartily sorry for Patience lor having to live with you if 1 could have my way I'd have her here with me in London. And I'd see she enjoyed herself. You know what's going lo happen If you continue to keep her under lock and key?" "What. Charlotte?" asked Mis« Alice tremulously. "Why. she'll probably run ott wiLh some man about whom you know nothing. It's only natural one day she's going to want to. You'll bring about the one thing you're *o dreading may happen She'll be just like Mother—" Mist Helen's shoulders were very upright, her eyes cold as steel. ' "Pleas* allow me to pass, Charlotte." Charlotte stood aiid«. "Alice . . ." Mist Alice followed her sister meekly (rom the flat. In silence they walked to the lift In silence they went down in it and out Into the street Miss Helen glanced at her sister and found that she wai surreptitiously wiping away a tear "Really, Alicel" "I'm sorry, Helen. But all this i« so upsetting." "Upsettingl Is that all you call it? J assure you from the bottom ol my heart that 1 am very sorry indeed lhat Charlotte ever came back into our lives." Mis» Alice looked at her unhappily- "Do you think \ve should speak like that about her, Helen? Alter all' she loo is dear Estcllc's daughter every bit as much as Patience. And besides — " "Besides what?" "I'm afraid you may not what I'm going to say." "I don't suppose 1 am. I su ypu refrain from saying it" "1 don't think 1 can, Helen. Vou see, 1 can't help but feel that jusl possibly there may have been something in what Charlotte said."
