XI 'THE students were in the seventh h e a v q n, especiallj those privileged to sit in clasfi and hear the heroine of the week expound. But the heroine did no expounding when it came to her watery escapade. She was frankly fed-up with it and wondered if they would have made half as much fuss if Gavin had been a bit too late. Peg Wayland was among the first to come to 'her and she kne;v with a warm flush in her heart that Peg was really moved and really glad that she had escaped harm. "Mother told me about you—In father's old robe and slippers and your hair hanging down. Oh, I wish I'd been there. She said your hair is-lovcly and that you'd make a swell ad for shampoo. I'm trying to sketch you. If I'd been at the beach-cabin—" "1 was rather paU and wan, Peg—I'd been in the water too long. I feel as if I'd hardly dried out yet. Sometimes I seem to go 'squish' when I move suddenly." - Peg told her they'd found the canoo quite unharmed on a sand- spit over by the Minister's Face "My brother, Rowan, and another kid found It. You lost the paddle and cushions. Mr. Fenn was pretty glad, they said." "I can believe It." •Would you r»tb«r It hid bm Mr. Fenn who reseued you than Uncle Gavin?" Lilith couldnt help smiling the questions these girls coulc ask. "That's like asking who reprieved your death sentence. One can't be particular at such times Should I have sent your uncl back to base to fetch Archer Fenn?" "Oh, you know I didn't mean that!" The blue eyes were reproachful, "What I mesn is Uncle Gavin Is an honest-to-gosf woman hater and I don't think he'd fall even for you—" 'Really, Peg! You've been seeing too many of those Hollywood heart-pullers. to fall for me I don't want him "You don't!" Peg looked at her Incredulously. "Why, every girl is simply nuts about Gavin—and about Archer Fenn too. Personally, I'd sooner be rescued by Mr. Fenn than by Uncle Gavin. Ol course, it's a matter of family relationship there—one can't marry one's uncle," 'And so it's on Archer Fenn? 'We all adore him. He's so romantic looking and when he gives us a .talk on poetry—oh, my—" She closed her eyes raptly —"I could simply swoon when I lear him." "You wouldn't have if you'd heard what he said to me about osing his canoe." "Was he furious?" "He said he wished we were ndians and he would beat me—" "Wouldn't you love It?" "I'm not much of a masoch- st—" "May I write that word down, VTiss Graeme? It means someone who gets a kick out of being unished, doesn't it? I'd like to prlng it on mother." RCHER called her on the phone after luncheon that ay. "I suppose you've heard the lad news? Some of the boys our eaoo*. We'd better ft out on the river this afternoon. We're off from half past three to six—" "But, Archer—' "Orders," he said sternly. The water was fairly smooth, and there was the canoe drawn up and Archer sitting on a boulder smoking his pipe, a white sweater knotted around his neck, an old red visored cap shading his eyes. "Scared?" He scrambled to his feet and cocked a wise eye at her. "I am—a little, Archer. But let's go." "Good girl! You'ro to do the paddling. You're good: you were becoming expert and I'm not going to let even a scare like that spoil a real canoe woman. We are » dwindling race, we children of the river and forest." "I loved it, Archer," she said, letting him catch her lightly in his arms when they grounded again on the beach, laughing up at him, her cheeks flushed under (heir golden tan. the gold flecks bright in the deep amber of her eyes. "I'm so Rlad you made me come. I'll never fear it again but I'll know enough to respect it." "That's the only way to treat the mighty water that the old chiefs called Wool-ah-stook. I ove it, but I'd have hated it forever if it had taken you." * • • T^HE dark eyes were earnest, looking down into hers, study- ng each line of her face. She 'elt closer to him than she ever >ad before and .when he bent his lead she gave him her lip? will- n £'y. tried to return from the depths of her the deep seeking of his kiss. "Better," he said, when sht moved slowly »way from him. 'A lot better, but still not—not what I'm seeking. I love you so, nd I'll keep on telling you until •ou love me in return." She was about to say, "I think do love you, Archer." But she wasn't at all sure that this was ove. Happiness she knew and ecurity In the circle of his arms. But was that the thing she ought, the high rapture she had elt the stirrings of when sh« 'at with Giles?
