Lilith stood looking with eyes that presently -aw only a blurred jumble of letters, at the stark m- ecription, that was all Ashtondale had now of the boy who had walked its lanes and gone to its schools arid played on this greensward where now a tall gray granite cross stood to commemo- ,rate him and the others who had gone from these peacetul .places— "They shall not grow old—" iShe saw the inscription now as jher vision cleared, and she ithought of Giles Wayland as she ihad seen him last, not in that sick, hurried glimpse of him in the window of Westerham Mews, ;but a week before when they had danced together in a London i -"'-club. Tall he was, with fine pro- '(T'flle and slightly beaked nose, and his hair was red and thick, cut close to his head. And he was full of recklessness and gaiety and laughter. He had been Poppy Ewart's friend when Lilith met him at » week-end in Kent, but »ftcr he had seen Lilith She was the only one. He had told her quite frankly about his divorced wife. Avis, in Canada, about his two children, PCS and Uowan. It was all over, had been for two year;,. There had been nothing morally wronf on either side; it was iust thai they never could agree, that it was better to part amicably than stay together until they did some deep harm to themselves or to the lives of their children. It had mattered to LUith, tha divorce—it had bothered her a ot. She came from a family that lated the very name, but there was something about Giles, his heer male magnetism and lust or life perhaps, that drew her rresistibly and held her in its hralL 'Know someone on the roll?" asked Archer. "1 met a lew of he Air Force boys—grand lads, know some of the veterans lere too." "I know one," said Lilith. "But had no idea that he came from Ihis part of Canada. He worked on a magazine in Toronto. That's his name—there at the end— liles Wayland." "Wayland! Why, the place here is full of them. 1 have several of that ilk in my classes at St. Bride's. And I have met—" He hesitated slightly—"a Mrs. Avis Wayland—" "She was his wife, I believe. Don't stop me. Archer, if 1 say it's a very small world. 1 was— was once engaged to Giles Wayland—" 'You're j t i 11 remembering then? 1 begin to see. When 1 kissed you down there on the shore, you still cherished the memory of another man's love—' "Perhaps. 1 don't really know I think 1 got in too deeply that time and I was hurt pretty badly Anyway, I didn't want to try It again—I mean, climb again to those shining pinnacles." They didn't talk much ai they walked back to the school. They said a quick goodnight. She went slowly up to her room, feeling no fatigue, only a deep sadness o heart as she thought aesin o Giles, tried to picture him here in Ihis lovely village. She was almost sorry now tha she had told Archer Fenn abou their brief love, but with him t would go no further. And tha was well: it was finished am done with, for all it mallerrd t thest peopl« it fe»d never lw«n But she Wondered what they were like — Avis and the doy and girl, perhaps some brothers or sisters. There had been at least one brother, she knew — Gavin, i»ho had be t cn a war correspond- :nt. But she had never met him. HE awoke to a world of beauty, dew-sparkling, with white mist in the hollows and over the iver where it was already tinged with gold and melting away in he sunlight. She went to her window and looked out on the awns and gardens, and gave only warm and happy thought to the Tanite cross on the common — They shall not grow old." In a gray skirt and pale blue umper she went down to join tfliss Tait and the three others who had been there last night— nd one new one — a dark, lovely jir] with a madonna face but with eyes that were deep and wise and mocking, eyes that took n every detail of Lilith's form and dress in one long lazy 'look. "This is Miss Lililh Graeme. our new English teacher." Miss Pail's long hand rested lightly on "Jlilh's arm. "Meet our art di- •eclor— Avis Wayland — " Lililh found herself looking as one hypnotized into those great eyes that were like pools ot ebony, into the almost too perfectly boned face, at the full sultry mouth, "How do you do?"' Her voice was throaty, tlurred, languid. •I'm sure we're glad to have you. You're going to direct dramatics too. aren't you?" The eyes narrowed with faint amusement and Lilith knew that she was not at all taken in by the severe hairdo, the horn-rimmed glasses, the absence of make-up. "I should think you'd be good at that." And with this little Barbed shaft— sort o( a trace r — she turned to Miss Vance and began to discuss some local artists in her lovely deep voice, liRhtly tcanng them to shreds and reducing them with i few choice sentences to the status of house painter*. Lilith found herself mechanically caling breakfast.
