She ; sent it back with Peg the nex ; day, after marking passages she : thought needed rewriting, cor- 'recting a few minor faults. She ; wrote: -r-you don't need my help, 1 think tba book will be Rood. Just (to ahead and writs It. As you get further Into It you'll lose yourself In the narrative and, alter a time, you'll be able to KO back and. rewrite the beginning which does amind like the work of someone who sat down with nothing on hi* mind but writing a book. As in s play, the tale Is thft thing:, and you have some wonderful, thrilling stories to tell. I'd like to read the rest bf It I —I hop« u will b« a great •ucceaa. Your letter—what can I— what could any girl—say about a letter like that? I loved it, but 1 wished at the same time you had not written It. And there must be no more at this. 7 OU . promised, you know, and I will hold you to that promise. She determined to avoid see- Ing him, and that was not too hard, for her work at the school kept her busy and Miss Tail discouraged phone calls. But she saw Avis or Peg almost every class-day and she had an Idea that Avis, at least, was in Gavin's confidence.. Sh« learned the truth o( this soon enough. Avis came to her ,in the rink where she was watch- ling the girlf)practice flgure-skat- iinj—Avis looking darkly lovely in a white fur parka and gay crim.son scarf. "What are you' doing to n hw uiual headlong way, without any build-up or finesse. "Why, nothing. I never even see him—not since that night he was at, your house and walked me home." "That's what I mean. Maybe I should have turned my question around—what did Gavin do to you—" "Really, I don't see—" "Oh, come off it." Avis had a wicked look in her eyes. "Are you afraid of him? Did he try to make love to you and scare you? Haven't you ever met real man before?" "Yes to everything," said Lilith. "Quaint character! Wriat seems to be the matter? You've hooked Gavin, I can tell you that. I never thought he'd fall for a woman again, but here you come along and In a few months he's running around all ga-ga about you, while you treat him as rather like the dust beneath thy chariot wheels, the flower beside thy door and all the rest of it. Even the literary aid is done by remote control like one of those 'You Too Can Write' courses. I don't get it." Lilith was a bit weary of Avis by now. "I came here to teach English, not to fall in love. I'm quite content with my work here—" "My eye! No girl—certainly not one with your looks—Is consent without a man or the prospect of one. 1 wish I knew what was the matter with you. I like '•avin—he's family, you see. I jretend I don't think the Way- ands are such a much, but Gavin s top» In my book—and so, in way, was Giles." • • a AND there, thought Lililh, you A have It right in a small nutshell. Your precious men, your priceless family. I had my sad experience with one of them, now if 1 tell the story of that, aflv I'vt kt m/Mlf UU for till one, I'll have another sad experience—and so will he. Archer and his hockey squad, v.-ho had come to take over the rink for practice, tramped noisily in, shaking the. snow from their coats and kicking it off their galoshes. "Hello!" Archer came over to the sidelines, his smile taking them both in. "Going to stay and see my.future big leaguers try to bash in each other's heads and stave in a few ribs against the boards?" "Such brutal sport!" smiled Avis. "Like wrestling, it always irousea the savage in me and I find myself yelling, 'Kill the bum.' I suppose you've never seen the game played, Lilith?" "I never have." "It's quite simple," said Archer. "One side tries to—" "Some other day, Archer." Lilith hadn't seen him for a long time, and now in his kindly eyes there was a hint of reproach, a look of hurt, of the small boy's ''What have I done now?" He seemed to have forgotten Avis. "Where do you keep yourself?" "Right here. You know that I have lols to do—" "I understand you have a sideline—a literary-criticism." "Old blabber-mouth Rowan. I'll bet, told you that," said Avis, not to be left out. "Isn't It good of Lililh to give Gavin a hand with his bid for literary fame?" ARCHER nodded glumly and "• excuset his skates. 'What have you got that I haven't?" Avis followed him with wistful eyes. "I might as well have been a block of ice. You sure can draw them to you," "He was always pretty serious." "Men are little boys, especially when .it comes to the woman hey love. He just can't reconcile himself to your collaborating even in a small way with som« other man. Wouldn't you like to the two of them join battle over you? H "1 would not." "I'd love il—if it was ovcY me."
