Gavin offered to walk up the hill with her and, though she wished it were otherwise, she found herself out in the clear, moonlight night with him beside her. with the frost glistening on fields and hedges and the long bright streamers of the Northern Lights sweeping the winter sky. They talked little, each thinking of the last time they had met. He asked her if she had ever gone canoeing again since that day and she told him of Archer's remedy and of how utter her first few jittery moments she had lost her fear. M I guess that's the remedy— Spartan but usually effective. What is Archer Fcnn to you?" She looked at him, a bit startled. After all it was no concern of his. "He'i my friend." She spoke stiffly. "We were classmates in England." "I wondered. You see—I've been thinking of you a lot—oh, what's the use of lying? I've been thinking of you all the time, ever since 1 fished you out of the drink and saw the sea-hag changing, by the water's magic spell, into a naiad—" "Please! I wish you wouldn't say these things to me—" "Why? Don't you like me?" "Yes—I like you, but—" "And I like you—if like Is the word. You've got into me some way. I don't know what it is. I wanted to call you • hundred times arid I just about had to lock myself in to keep from folng to you." She Ipved and feared to to these things which he said to her in a low, earnest voice. She wanted to stop him, wanted to run from him and yet his words held her—words so much like those Giles had spoken long ago, and his voice was like his brother's—deep and resonant. T^HEY crossed the common and it was close by the granite cross that he turned to her and swung her about to face him and drew her hard and close against him, his lips seeking hers And this, that she had steeled herself against and had resolved to fight, found her suddenly weak and helpless and, more, wanting, even seeking, the ardor of his caress. ! No She broke from him at last, breathless, her eyes a-shine. "Please, no!" "No?" His laugh was triumphant. "But we've done it. And it's what I wanted more than I've ev?r wanted anything. And you—there's nothing cold about you—why, you're all fire. How could you fool us so?" She tried to think, to reason calmly, but there was no calmness in this moment, for the stars still tumbled about and her breath still came fast and in all her body was a warmth and a wonder that his love had made She, too, had thought often of him, puf'.ing the thought away, thrusting it down, denying it, so that now, the lid off, there was no resisting the tide that iwept upon her. Bu*. it led nowhere, this love of theirs. From where she stood she could see the plaque on the granite cross, almost read the last name on that list of the dead. He would hate her and think this a sacrilege, but It had been none ol her choosing. 'I must get back to the school. And this—w« must forget this— do you hear? I don't—" "Forgot it? Don't be foolish. There is no foi getting what 1 led for you, Lilith—not in this life." "You don't even know me—" "I've known you always. I mean you've always been with me somehow—the one I wanted, the woman I could give my life to. You won't deny me, will you?** "Rut you—you had a wife—" He laughed bitterly. "If you'd call her that. Let's not talk about it, now or ever. Believe me. it was nothing, less than nothing—" "You must have thought— •" Hadn't Giles said much the same thing to her, talking of his life with Avis? Had they both taken a beating from marriage—or was the fault in them? She didn't know what to do. She could end the whole thing right here and now by telling him that Giles, too, had loved her and said much the same things to her years ago. And Giles had lied. She could toll him of Giles's love for her, but she could not tell him why she had sent back the ring and put Giles out of her life. CHE walked on quickly, letting him follow and catch up with her. "You're not angry, are you?" "No—not angry. Only sad." "But why?" , . "Oh, don't ask me. But this will get us nowhere and can lead nowhere." "But I love you—" "I can't take your love." ."You don't say, though, that you don't want my love." "Oh, let me be, won't you? I— I wish I'd never corns here. I wish I'd never seen you—or anyone of your kind." He too* that wrong, thinking she alluded to the stories that went the rounds in Ashtondal« about the wild Waylands.
