But it had chastened and (subdued Edgemere's English in- ^structress. I "And poor Archer's canoe— iwill it ever be found, do you I think?" I "I'll cruise about after the [storm eases up," promised Gavin. '"See if I can get a line on it. iFenn should pin your ears back •for being such a reckless little (monkey." "No doubt he will. He loves (that canoe. Maybe — maybe it 'would have been better to leave line and bring back the canoe." "Didn't occur to me, in the Ihectic moments of the rescue," tgrinned Gavin. "Too late now. |I'm glad it came out so well." 'And he looked gravely down at too young, too 'her. "You're lovely—" "I'll never forget it. Gavin." She held out her hand. She had pinned the glorious hair up again in all its severity and she wore the heavy-framed glasses, but she knew that he could really see her face now, see into the eyes that looked so thankfully inlo his. Perhaps, she thought, when you know about me, when somewhere you discover that the Lesley Gray your brother loved and —as you thirk -died for. Is the girl you snatched from death— then, maybe you'll let me drown- wish you'd "You coming with us, Gavin? I came down to collect you for dinner. In all the excitement, 1 forgot what brought me. You come too, Lilith." "I would like it, thank you so much. But I'm due back at the school, and I have to change my —well, it might have been my shroud, mightn^t it?" "Will you two blue-stockings come out of the water," pleaded Gavin. "And let's go. Yes, I'd love to have dinner with you, Avis. Sorry ilith." you can't come— "Won't Peg b* thrilled to hear about this!" Avis's eyes shone as she mentally rehearsed the dramatic tale she was going to spin, "Lilith is one of her pet projects —for study and analysis. I think she started out with the idea of hating her teacher but there's been a subtle change." T IL -"- 1 ILITH had marked it too. And it was one of the things that made her happy in thli new school. She could not have stood antagonism, secret or open, from Giles Wayland's lovely daughter. She had noticed the slow, half- shy approach that Peg had made to her, the little tentative offers of friendship and loyalty. Avis drove fast through the driving rain-squall and went into the school with Lilith to act as a sort o( butter, "You m»y bt sure they'll know all about your experience, Grapevint isn't the word for it her*. Radar-screen perhaps and sometimes it seems to me they hear about things before they happen. You shoot up to your room. I'll give Taiter the story u It should b« told." ' Avis must have made an excellent job of it. There were murmurs and sincere expressions of sympathy and of gladness that Lilith had come out of it so well. The Lnughing Water had claimed a good man/ victims, it was {•- called at dinner, and everyone seemed to feel some satisfaction that it had been cheated out of. this one. "I was watching it all through glasses down at Mrs. Raeburn's beach cottage," said Miss TaiL "It was most thrilling, my dear— the way Gavin Wayland swooped down on you in that sea sled. I've never seen anything like it. You won't forget your experience in a hurry, I should say. We must have Rev. Mr. Carvil, the chaplain, give thanks during the Sunday service. And do be more careful after this — good teachers of English are so hard to find these days." the (or sound when one when one hears it A.'ISS TAIT sent one of •*•*-*• maids with hot cocoa Lilith before she went to bed, but by that time the reaction had begun to pass and she was able to look more calmly at the business, to see it as if it had happened to someone else, to recall a lot of littje things— e strong clasp of Gavin's fingers, the strength of his arms as he had drawn her inU the boat. She lay awake for a while in the darkness of her room, listening to the beat and pound of the rain against the window and on the slates of the dormer. A good sheltered, from the warmth and security of a snug bed. But on the water, under the frowning battlement of the great bluff it had been a dreadful thing, awesome, striking deep into the very core of life, showing how tenuous was one's hold on the things that looked so fixed and solid. She thought regretfully ol Archer's canoe and prayed that someone would find it and that it would not be smashed like an eggshell on the rocks. Archer loved that canoe and she loo had loved it, but she wondered now if she would ever have nerv* enough to sail in it again. Perhaps, she thought, I'd better go right out in another ona tomorrow. Isn't that what they make a crashed pilot do to overcome his fear of the air? But the idea didn't appeal to her at all.
