"I'll love you always," said Gavin. "And I'll never tire of I telling you even though you should tire of listening." "1 don't think I'll ever weary of that." "But why did you (ry to fight j our love?" I Should she tell him now? It seemed the opportune time, the right moment, to speak of Giles, of that dead love and of what had caused its death. But she dreaded the idea, hating to spoil the perfect beauty of this time. I "Docs it matter? Docs anything ; else matter—anything but this?" "Nothing," he said. "I don't care what it was since now it seems to have gone or not to matter. We have each other now and I'd be a fool to stir up anything that might spoil this. You will marry me, won't you? There's nothing to prevent—" "I have to finish my year at school." And she thought; sometime in the months to come, sometime when this rapture Is not so new, so fragile, I can tell him the story of Giles and me and it will be all right. It must b« all right. "That's only six more months and if you want me then—" "Must we wait so long?" "I think it would be as' well. Maybe—" she teased him—"this magic spell will fade. I ihall duck buck behind my glasses and put my hair up in wb»t you to charmingly christened the Great Auk's Nest effect — and then you'll wonder what you ever saw in me—" "I still would find you fair, wench. You are Lilith—the first of women, the mother of Eve, the loveliest, and you are mine—for all time you are mine." She came into his arms again believing, trusting, assuring herself that treachery in love, like lightning, doesn't strike twice in the same place— So she let herself believe what she wanted to believe and was happy and, even if sorrow came afterwards, she would always remember that she had been glad. • • • jVfAYBE they did discuss the A book that night during the dinner they ate at a log chalet in the hills, but they recalled about as much of that as they did of what they had eaten. In these golden, wondrous hours, the little things of earth had no smallest place. They lived, these two, in realms of beauty; moved in a world of their own that love had created—a world that each one found in the eyes, the speech, the handclasp of the other. It had not been like this, she knew—that other love she had known with this man's brother. Perhaps the lift, the ecstasy, the out-of-lhis world feeling had been as great — perhaps even more so; but it had had neither the depth nor scope of this emotion. It was young, immature, uncertain. She was older now. The girl of seven years ago, feathery light and airy and dancing on silver shoes, was the womnn of today, wiser, -he hoped, formed in the slow turning of the years, able to Judge «nd weigh IB* worth of the love that wai offered. With him it was, It hnd to bt, the same. With him It should be even easier to know how real wai their love, for he had gone all the way with bis first love; he had married. Straiigely, she felt no great curiosity about that early love of his. It had not been a good thing. He had told her so himself and it seemed as if he wanted to put even the memory of it away from him. Perhaps some day he would tell her. She could wait, she told herself, and she had nothing to fear from that other woman who had held him only briefly. The evening sped by and they were out under the star-rich sky, so bright-bedizened here in this northern clime, as if the heavens by putting on a special show, an added glory, tried to make up for the loss of summer's brightness. • • • AT the school door he took her hands in his and held them hard and looked long into her eyes—looked and spoke not, as lovers do—before he drew her hard against him' and held her lips. "It has to do me for so long," he said. "How I wish I could take you away from this place—" "But I liks it! I've liked it here from the very first." "1 can show you a thousand things you'll like belter and lake you lo as many places—" Til be okay, Gavin," she touched his cold cheek, "just as long as I'm with you, just as long as you love me as you have today. I've been so happy. I knew that with you I would be and 1— I guess I was a bit afraid of happiness. I thought once before in my life that 1 was In love—" "Well, so did I. But I know— you have made me see so clearly —that what I had was a poor substitute for the real thing Was it the same with you?" I'm not sure, but it's over now. It was over long ago. And, yes, I can tell you it was never like this. I don't know that it ever could have been like this." "He—the man—" "He's not here any more." "Nor ij she.
