Under the sketch was printed. "One of history's famous —or infamous—women." Lilith looked up from studying it. "I think you flatter me." The red crown glimmered as ! Peg shook her head. "Oh. no, I'm sure it doesn't flatter you, Miss Graeme." "You wore supposed to be paying attention, you know. You : can't do two things at once." "This i? Canada. We can watch television or listen to the radio and do our lessons at the same time. 1 heard all of what you said. And I just had to make a sketch of you-T-" "Why did you?" "Something about you bothers • me—" She wasn't boinp, insultant, Lilith rcnlixcd. They were all amazingly frank, these girls— "1 don't know what it could be. Miss VVaylnnd—or shall I call you Peg?" "If you wish. Miss Graeme. I can't explain to you what it was m;ide me draw you. I drew you first without the cheaters and I • couldn't make a go of it. You ; look like someone I've seen bc- ', fore. It's as if I knew your face qui'e wril -" "liript,:: ihle, I've been In this country ohiy a sow clays—" "1 know. That's what puzzle* me. You are a bit of an enigrma. you know. That's what mother says." "Should I be flattered or the reverse, I wonder?" "Oh, flattered, I should think. It's nice to meet someone different—someone who isn't just one, two. three. And it's fun, too— there is a key to every enigma and it should be interesting trying to find the key to you." Lilith had no answer for this. But this was nonsense about having seen her before. Unless— she put the thought away, but it carne back at her with a flagging persistence — unless somewhere in this place there was or had been a picture of her. Giles had had one of the stills taken of her from Crosskeys, the play in which she had been appearing when he first met her. There wasn't much of a likeness. Lilith thought consolingly, between the Lesley Gray of that long ago day and the Lilith Graeme Who stood here in the classroom. "May I keep it?" she asked. "It's quite a tribute to be made the subject of a portrait at one's very first class." "Keep it if you like." • • « AT lunch Lilith sat next to Avis ** Wayland whom she had not seen since the morning Avis and Gavin had gone driving. Avis nodded to her as to an oltt friend "Well, my dear, school's in at last. Everybody's back to the old grind and all the fun is over. How did you fare?" "Splendidly, I think. A bit r-arly to judge, but they seem to have no higher aim In life than the acquisition of a good knowledge of English literature. They really nre very earnest. You have to he rugged to face up to Walter Scott, Thackeray and Lamb, all in one year—" "Winnie-thc-P o o h would be tho speed of a good many of them ii you want to ask me*" said Avis. "Teaching the classics these days is like playing a zither in a boogie-woogie band. How was my flame-topped darling?" "We tangled—isn't tiiat what you say?—first-off. She was expounding to her classmates the not untenable thesis that redheaded w u rncn have been the most famous in history—when I walked in and contributed the equally tenable truth that they have also been among the most infamous—" "Oh, good! Was she furious? She has a temper and reacts like an irritated puma sometimes." "I'm not sure she liked it. But she was at least interested in me enough to make a sketch of me — really a rather flattering one—very appropriately labeled —'One of history's famous or infamous'—" "Saucy brat! I hope you told her off properly?" "Oh, no. I took the sketch." * • • AVIS looked at it a long time without speaking, her food neglected. "You know—1 think she's got something on the ball. I don't really think it flatters you but she was trying to see into—" "The enigma?" "What a chatterbox! Yes, I did tell, her I thought you were something of a riddle, but I didn't mean to get her started on a campaign to psychoanalyze you—" "She thinks she finds in mo the after-image of someone she knew or saw someplace." "She'll ferret it out if she really did. You never saw such a determined, persistent piece— goes with th.-it red head—oops! No offense intended. I forgot about your own." "None token, I assure you. I like having red hair." After luncheon Lilith went to her room and put Peg Wayland'i picture on the bookshelf above her desk. "I wonder if she could have seen my photo," she thought. "It would be pretty well dated now, if it was among Giles Wayland's things.
