In H rv T ILITH felt that Avis Wayland •^ was deliberately neglecting her all through the leisurely breakfast. She turned, though, when they were finished, and she smiled demurely when Lilith hesitated and looked at Miss Tail "Oh," she said softly "We won't light 'em here. Taiter suffers from asthma and anyway you're not supposed to smoke within these sacred walls. Let's go out on the side terrace." With a glance of her black eyes she drew Lilith with her and they went outside and perched 4* nn H NU Mtvtcc. IM. _ daughter, Peg, in your English class and she's pretty sure to get a crush on you—that lovely accent of yours and that startled fawn effect you gave when you heard my name." Lilith slared at her coldly. "You're assuming quite a lot, Mrs. Wayland. 1 was, 1 grant you. a bit startled. Shall we say—by your looks?" "1 wonder. And 1 think you could do a lot of startling on your own if you came out Irom behind the camouflage—" "Well, i have to teach school after all. When I'm going to a ^^^-^^^^^ San! l'U we'ar the p™. dress, I assure you." •'Oka 1 suppose it's different for you.

Avis looked at her with cool appraisal, the full mouth smiling, and Lilith returned the look with one as candid. "Yo'i know," said Avis, "there's something about you that interests me—1 don't know what exactly it is. Oh, don't think for » moment that I oelieve those cheaters you're hiding behind or that 1 subscribe for that hair•do—" j ''You're very frank." I "It's the curse of my life." She j brushed Lililh's protest aside. "1 .can't help it. I'm wondering •whether you and 1 are going to I be friends or foes—" "Is there any particular reason i why we should be either?" "Well, jo». We're bound to i work together on the «chool j plays. I design the sets, that sort lot thing. Another thing i« that lyou'r* to nivt m/ /ouo| married to their pride and ioy, Giles. We got a divorce. He was killed in the war. I have his wo children. 1 ILITH wondered If it would ' be a good thing for her lo be ai frank, to tell this woman of her relationship with Giles—and she decided against it There was no use taking up that dead episode. If I didn't tell you, someone else would." Avis swung net long lovely legs and studied the exquisite ankles with the Roman straps criss-crossing them, "I leach here because oi the money. The Wayland Trust pays me an allowance for myself and Peg and Rowan, much: they but it's not too were ilwayt attached to the Royal Family—" "1 don't see—" "1 mean th« pictures on the buiknoM*. Old Jarvu wu t mil- lionaire but he used to ride down ;o Florida in a day coach to save Pullman fare, He never approved of me or the way I spent money, which helped to foul things un between Giles and me. Giles was 3 swell guy, but it just didn't work out. He had hard luck with his women. He was going to marry another one m London and she ditched him too. He went to pieces. He always had a lack of resistance towards a bottle and he capitulated completely, said he wanted to meet the shell with hit number on it—and he did—" Each word Avis said seemed to sting and burn. "I hope 1 haven't bored you, Lilith—lovely name. Vou seem to invite confidences but I love telling my life story to anyone who will listen to it. Gavin- he's another Wayland — says 1 should write it down and pass it out to strangers. You'U like Gavin — he's Giles's younger brother. He's just back from Korea—war correspondent with the Army. He's going to call here for me shortly. Tell me all about yourself." Lililh laughed outright; Avis joined her. "1 can just imagine you letting down that back nair the way I've undone mine. You're an old friend of Archer Fenn's. aren't you?" "Oh. yes. We went to the University together. Do you know Archer very well?" "Not so well as I'd like to. Ht had dinner with us once. He leaches Rowan at St Bride's. Are you in love with him?" • • • tiTTS'S probably the best friend 1 have; he was instrumental in bringing me over bere to teach. But in love with him—" "You're not one of those cold, aloof women, are you?" Avis deftly shot ner cigaret butt in a long trajectory out onto the still sparkling grass.
