Robert Crosskno X-XXVM PATIENCE go t out ot th« CM she'd hired to fetch ner from the station, and stood hesitating outside the garden gate. Then she braced herself She'd jot to get it over. And what was more she was going to be absolutely truthful. Yes. vi-.n it it did lead to trouble. She beard a door opening and looked up. There was Aunt Alice coming down the path to meet her "Dear child, how glad I am to se* youl" Patience dropped her suitcase, and ran to her aunt's arms. "Darling, 1 hope you weren't worried?" "Well, we've naturally been anxious." "I'm most desperately sorry Where's Aunt Helen?" "Indoors." "Is she—is sh3 awfully angry?" "Well, dearie, I'm afraid she is rather put out." Patience, her knees shaking, retrieved her suitcase and went into the house. Miss Helen, hearing voices, had come to see what was happening. She stood there in the doorway o* the sitting room looking far more forbidding than she was really feeling. For just to see the child safe and sound was even more of a relief than she'd have thought possible. All the same she was determined not to be weak with her. "Hello, Aunt Helen," faltered Patience, "I'm home." "So I see. I'd like to speak to you. Patience. No, Alice, I'd prefer to speak to Patience alone." Patience followed her aunt into the sitting room and closed the door. Miss Helen sat down in her customary chair. "Now perhaps you'll tell me just what you mean by your conduct, Patience. I called on Madame Girard yesterday afternoon, only to be told that you were not at the Academy. From there I went to see your sistet. I'd b« glad ot an explanation." PATIENCE drew a swift breath. It was * shock to learn her lunts had talked to Charlotte. She herself had been unable to net In touch with her on her way through London this morning. "IV* a little difficult to know where to begin." she said. "I can well understand H." There was a pause. "I'm waiting, Patience.** Patience thought: "If only I knew what Charlotte has said!" And then knew that it would make no diflerence. She'd got to tell her Aunt Helen everything "I've been to Paris, Aunt Helen." She was sure immediately she'd sold this that Ch;.rlolte must have told her aunt something quite different. But It was too late now to change her mind about it. And anyway she didn't want to. "Charlotta Roger Dickson—he's a friend of Charlotte's—and 1, all Hew over there on Sunday mom- ing. Du-ight Brceden met up with us. I—she—we—" her voice faltered. It was so difficult to go on with Aunt Helen looking at her so sternly. "Go on, Patience." Patience made a little gesture. "Well, that's all there is to tell jrou." "But Charlotte was back in Lon don yesterday afternoon," laid Miss Helen severely. "I know. You see. Roger and I missed the 'plane." Miss Helen's [ace froze. Sh< tried to fight against a dreadfu fear that was slowly forming. "We traveled back by night W< came via Newhaven-Dieppe. It was the most tedious and tirin s journey. We had to' sit up all the while." Miss Helen breathed again. Not of course, she told herself swiftly that she'd been really anxious. Or tad she beta, ]u«t for a brief mo- nent? If so. it had been mort unworthy ot her. She must surely :now Patience better than that. And now Patience was on her inees beside her. sobbing her very leart out. Saying that she was most desperately sorry. That not (or worlds would she have worried either her Aunt Alice or Aunt ielen if sh* could possibly have lelped It. That she herself had «en most unhappy about it. And most bitterly regretted going, Except—except— 'What, Patience?" 'Well, Aunt Helen, I must b« honest. I—1 did rather enjoy myself." • • • JT was astonishing, Patifnce thought, and marvelous that she'd got oil so lightly. She'd ex- aecled to be In disgrace for days. to hnve her aunts keep an even stricter eye on her. Was it possible that they were relenting just a little? That It was slowly beginning to dawn on them thnt she was growing up at last? T?iai it was only reasonable that she should want a little fun? She decided this must be happening when at lunchtirae on the following Saturday they said that they had a young man coming to tea that afternoon. Not that this filled her with any great enthusiasm. She could well imagine the kind of young man Aunt Helen and Aunt Alice would invite to meet her! Nevertheless, around « o'clock Patience went dutifully upstairs and took the gray dress Charlotte had given her from her wardrobe. Aunt Alice had actually asked her to wear it! As she changed, she heard • car coming up the road. The sound of its engine drew nearer. And then it slopped. There were toot- Eleps sounding on the garden path. The front doorbell rang. Patience heard Mary go to ansive; it "Good afternoon, sir." "Is Miss Melville at home?" Palience started. Her hands pressed down on her dressing la- ble. She stood, leaning heavily upon them. It couldn't be. II wasn't possible. But it was his voice, she was certain.
