T TLITH Avis, V wasn't going to tell which would be the same as telling the little world of Ashtondale. that she Was the girl who had jilted Giles Way- Innd—the girl they blamed for his debacle, for his reckless «ourting of death, his eager seeking of the bullet that ended his life. Perhaps it had really been like •that. Young as she was then she had been forced to admit that there was in Giles a wildness. an emotional instability that too oft- •cn sent him off tempestuous, unheeding of any consequences whatever. But if they blamed her in any part for his downfall, it was all the greater reason why she didn't choose to admit that she had ever known him If they found out about her. she would have to defend herself and tell them why she had ditched Giles. She had no intention of being a martyr for the honor of the Way- 'lands or a sacrifice on the altar of the family pri'ie that, she began to see. was what mattered with them most. An ivory white convertible, top down, streaked up the driveway and crunched to a stop on the gravel sweep In front of the col- liege. There was a tall fellow in ia jockey cap at the wheel. He waved to Avis and got out. "Thai's Gavin Wayland. my brolher-in-law Handsome brute, isii'i he? Doesn'l like women. I giK-ss he got mirned too. The .Waylands do seem lo havt tough luck with their love-life. Hi, Gavin! Come up here and meet the latest thing from London." * • • OE looked a lot like Giles, Lfl- ith thought, only he was taller, thinner and there was a seriousness about him that was older than his years. He acknowledged the introduction with cool indifference, looking at her only once and with no faintest flicker of interest. It was such a complete dismissal that she lelt the anger rise in her, felt the challenge that every lovely woman knows when a man looks at her as if she were of no great import in his scheme of things. "We're driving up to the Belleisle." Avis slid dowri''ofT the coping and put her hand on Gavin's shoulder for support. "Wouldn't you like to come with us?" Lilith didn't wait to see If Gavin wanted her to. She rather thought he didn't. "Thank you, no." Her fingers touched the thick chignon of her hair. "There are so many things one must do. I'm sort of starting a new life, you know." "Miss Graeme is going to have Peg in her class," Avis told Gavin. "Isn't that nice? "Why, ye He turned to her then and smiled and the smile was a good thing to see in that thin brown face. His red hair •under the jockey cap was bleached to a pale gold and it was thick and cropped close. "You'll like our Peg," he said. Lililh watched them climb into the convertible and waved in answer to Avis Wayland's parting salute. Shi stood there watching until the low-slung, beetle-like car, was lost among the trees. She leaned wearily against, the balustrade then, feeling lonely, deflated and strangely forlorn, here in this vast, bright land, among all the?e strangers who, but for a turn of the wheel, might have been b«r dear friends or bitter enemies, who now looked on her as just a strange girl who has come into their midst. "I've had enough Wayland for a while," she decided. "I don't know that I like the breed. That man. that Gavin—1 hated the way he looked at me—with such utter indifference." She knew it wouldn't be too hard for her to banish the bored look from those blue eyes, to make them light with what she had seen long ago in his brother's. And, suddenly, she found herself wanting to do just that, eager to accept the gage he had thrown down, the challenge of his indifference. "Tjooking at me rather as if I were a clay figure—and not a very good one at thnl," she thought rcbelliously. Then she smiled. * * * IT had been a long time since - 1 any man had piqued her, disturbed her like this. She found herself thinking about him, speculating about his life, and she was aroused from this idle daydreaming only by Miss Tail's quick step on the terrace and her cheery, "Here you are, my dear. I suppose Avis Wayland talked the ear off you. Lovely thing, isn't she? And you met Gavin, I suppose." "Oh, yes." "Charming fellow—used pretty wild. But he's lamed down now. He has been in Korea this past year. Plans to write a book about it, I hear. Somebody's always writing a new book about something. He lives in that old barracks of a house—the family homestead. You'd get lost in it." "Is he—married?" Lilith felt the question slip out before she could stop it. "He was, I believe. His wife died. He Joesn't seem to care much for women—doesn't trust them, I dare say Giles, his brother, didn't have much luck .with Avis has no But all this Wayland story must bore you to tears—" How little she knew, thought Ulilh.
