"/ Sell That Stuff" Phone 2089 Office & Bulk Plant- Promised Land Beside the Laughing Water A Romance by LOUIS ARTHUR CUNNINGHAM TN November Avis invited Lilith to have dinner at the .cottage that she and Giles had built—a low-eaved, cozy house of gray limestone quarried from the nearby hills. She met the boy Rowan, a dsrk, quiet lad in the awkward feet-and-ears stage but with his father's quick, merry grin and bright blue eyes with little traits that she remembered, that caught at her heart and brought back so many things that she had all but forgotten. Peg was in he'r glory, arrayed 1 in a new Paddy green woolen i frock and a pair of her mother's ; gold drop earrings that made her look like a young princess, the golden hair brushed and bur: nished until it shone. "You're taking my daughter i away from me," said Avis, when Lilith and Peg returned from seeing the dogs, an English setter with five lovely puppies and an sged St. Bernard that had belonged to Giles and was now, Peg said, just about in his dotage. Lilith both loved and feared the warm affection that Peg showed her. But Peg turned to Lilith with all the warmth of her young heart, all the open -affection that was part of her nature. She displayed her books, her treasures •nd—jurest measure • of conn- dene*—she told Lilith of her loves. And there was no denying her faith, her friendship; no keeping her at • distance. "You know," Peg told her, "I've given up trying to plnce | you. Miss Graeme. Remember the [«keU:h 1 nude at you that ttrsl day in English X, when you were telling us of the glories of English literature and I was being unruly—" "Ob yes, I still have It, Peg." "I said then—I told you, remember, that you made a gong ring somewhere inside my noggin when I first set eyes on you." "I remember it quite well. 1 "I never did have any luck. I could see that face—that other face of'yours, but only as Mr. Cavil say, 'as in a glass darkly'. It was always in a mist, tantalizing me: never quite clear, it used to make me rage. Now I don't let it bother me any more." "I'm glad of that.". "But sometimes 1 think you know quite well what I'm talking about and that you could help me if you wanted to. Look, you're not some great name masquerading as a school teacher—some famous—" "Or infamous character? Oh, no. Nothing like that. And I'm no exiled princess or deported queen or anything like that. Have you been fancying all those romantic things about me? I had a short spell with Secret Intelligence during the war, and it wasn't anything like the thrillers you read. Mostly typing and decoding." "That must have been fascinating!" Peg's eyes shone. "And you must have had loU of interesting things happen to you." "I'd like to tell you 1 was a real Mata ilari, but I couldn't lie to you, Peg—" • • • "T KNOW that —Lilith." The complete trust in her eyes, In the way she spoke, struck •lain at the sore spot In this happy association. She told herself that she should never have become friends with these people, never wor, the love ind confidence of this young creiture, so ntelligent, so vulnerable. But. aiur all, <b* bud don* Uwn DO harm, tt was Giles wno nad let her down., turned from her with his vows pf loyalty still fresh on hfi lips to go with a girl like Poppy Ewart. Gavin, who didn't share Archer Fenn's ideas on the slaying of deer, who said they caused endless damage to crops and gardens, had shot a buck, and the Waylands had roast venison for dinner, also some ducks which Peg and Avis had downed on the Hampton marshes. Gavin came when they were drinking their coffee and had some with them in the glassed- in porch that looked down on the river. He had started on his book and he wasn't too happy about it. "I can't, write worth a hoot," he said despondently. "Why don't you get Miss Graeme to help you?" suggested Peg. "She's a real wizard with words. Boy, can she sling the old mother tongue around And, after .all, she owes it to you for saving her life." • • • "WHY, you mercenary lit- tie—" Gavin grinned at her. "It's well seen you're descended from a clan that swindled the Indians. You expect Miss Graeme to ghost my book just because I—" "Well, she'd have been ghosting anyway if you hadn't hauled—" She dodged the cushion Gavin' hurled at her. "Please, vixenl I won't ask Miss Graeme—" "Call her Lilith," put in Avis. "And why not? I don't think your stuff is one whit worse than the rest of the tripe that's dished out all the time. The ability to write sven fair English prose is becoming a lost art. A few more generations and we'll be bnck to picture writing—" _ "You mean all they'll rend Is comic books?" asked Peg. "We're headed that way." continued Avis. "But you really •ouldn't mind looking over Gavin's script, would you, Lllilh?" Not at all. I'm not sure that I can be of much help to you. But I'd ronlly like to read it." <1« B* FRECKLES AND HIS FRIINM i WASJUPPOHOTb £ANDT HALF AH HOUR AT THE WAMGLES SUMMER HOME?
