She was-interested in the progress of the work, bu 'more still in the Idlers that accompanied the weekly chapters This one said: Won't you le" m« give TOTJ dinner In the Mty one of these nights?

She was called to the phone then and asked if she could go with him. All the fine resolutions she had made about keeping out ot his way, of putting an early end to what had sprung up between them, went like a weak levee at the onslaught of a tidal wave. She found hcrseh' saying. "Yes. Gavin. I'd like to go. You come for me about half-past three and PI1 be ready." "I'll be there." He sounded i happy. "1—it's been pretty lone- I some without seeing you. It was I killing me—to know that you I were up there in that lay-convent ] only a short distance from me. iand yet 1 couldn't sec you. 1 («lt : like dashing up there and hammering down the door and abducting you." "That would have been another chapter for the book." "What book?" "The one Miss Tall nnd the others have started about—about i iu.

It's as if thi rescuer owned a lifetime inter est in the rescued." "Swell! I never thought o that before, but it's one of tin best theories I've heard in a long time. And in your case, I shal press for my bond." She knew it wasn't gratitude alone, though, that had drawn her to him, that had sent her with only a half-hearted doomed-to-failure struggle, into his arms and parted her lips to his kiss. And she had missed him these past weeks and her ready consent to go with' him hnd sprung from loneliness, from wanting, for an actual hunger to be near him. "Let him hate me afterwards,' she said to the wide-eyed girl in the mirror as she made ready for their date, fixing her hair in an upsweep that transformed her in a minute from a bachelor-girl to a bacchante. "Let him love me nov«and afterwards, if he can, ;t mi et mm hate*me. Let him learn to love me and nothing can hurt us—not even what happened with Giles. I can tell him, If I must—and he will believe me. He must believe m«." whistled when he stepped out of the car and leld the door open for her She cnew that whistle. She had heard t often in the rink when the [iris were skating before an ap- ireciative crowd of the boys rom St Bride's. She felt ai lattered now as any of her tudenti "Lovely, lady," 'said Gavin.

Gavin drove slowly, heading nowhere in particular. He had asked her if there was any pl.vce special that she'd like to see, but she had no preference. She was content just to float along beside him in the big convertible, ita lop snugly tight, its heater humming softly. Just to drift along, saying little, content at the mere being together. She rested her head against the cushions and closed her eyes and smiled and •avin, glancing at her, smiled :oo and reached over and took icr hand and pressed it. "What was the trouble. Lil- th?" Presently he spoke, turning off on a side road towards .he hills where thc^ going was not rutted, polished, treacherous. 'Whatever it was, it's over now —isn't it? 1 meovi the trouble be- ,ween you and me that made you ;ay the night I kissed you that here must be an end to it" 2HE turned her head on the J cushion and looked through angourous eyes, only half-hear- on 1 " half-caring. "Over? Oh, I don't know. I don't want o think about it now. We don't iave to. do we?" "No, indeed. We don't even have to talk.
