One day the school hummed and !throbbed and was alive with I young bustling, eager life; the next it was like a tomb, only the sound of the clock booming out the hours forlornly in the winter stillness, the metallic scrape of old Joe Pascoe's shovel as he :sroured the snow.ofl the chapel 'steps. But Lllith didn't mind. There was only one person in her world anyway, and he would never go far from her nor she from him. They were working hard on his book now, putting new life and interest into it. watching it grow with eager impatience, now cast down into the slough of despond when the chapters limped or the <!'.eme bogged down, now liJted'to the pinnacles of hope and light when a part came off with a iflash of fire- Archer had asked her to have Christmas dinner with him at a hotel in town where there was a dance afterwards, and without hesitation she consented She owed this to him, she told Gavin, who seemed to understand—it was his Christmas-box and the 'least she could give him. "I haven't told him yet," she said, "about us. But Archer's psychic where I'm concerned. I i think heltnows—" "And docsn'l like it much, 111 bet. H<-ha i some ...•-•'.o^* himself, I thin/; ' "Yes." She rtirtn't want to talk I about what had b«« Ixtweoo her and Archer. To her it was sacred and she'would always remember it and with it his gentleness, his quiet friendship and lasting loyalty. "Odd chap. I met him during the war, in London. Oh, here and there. He wasn't much for fun—always seemed io be seeking the Holy Grail." She didn't have to give Archer any sort of apology for Gavin Wayland. He had seen It coming. he told her and he hoped and ias sure she would find happiness. "I'll always regret," he said. 'I'll always want you and I don't think there'll be another girl—" "Oh, Arch, how silly! You'll find some other girl—" 'With eyes as wise but kindlier—' I'm not so sure. I'm cursed With the dreary faculty of knowing what I want from life, from love, and it's not so good, I tell you. There Is no compromise for us unfortunates, no second-best or alternative choice. It is this one or nothing—and you were' :he one for me." 'You—you make me feel as if [ had your happiness in my hands—" . 'And you have, Lililh. But then, my happiness is yours, you see, and I'll not mind watching jour own bliss. You can believe that Wayland's a good chap- lots of dash and go to him and fine stuff in his make-up." "I'm glad to hear you say that, Archer. He said he'd met you overseas and that he didn't think you had too high an opinion of him." "We all had a lot of puppy In u« then, I guess. The good ones got it knock-id out of them. We're old dogs now." 4 • • 'T'HEY wcrt singing Christmas x carols thot night, the people clustered around the tall fir tree that h,vl been erected in the mid<U« at Uw cily'i largeit and adorned with ornaments and strings of colored lights that winked on and off. Archer parked his little car by the hotel and they walked over and joined in the singing. A chorus of French students sang their own Noels, their rich voices rising and falling in exquisite harmony on the frosty air and when they had finished and were trooping across the park they broke into their beloved Alouette— "Alouette, gentil alouette, Alouette, je te plurncrai." Fleetirigly she thought of Giles, of the dark morning in the converted mews and the great voice booming from the bath and Poppy Ewart with the lipstick smeared across her cheek. She put the thought from her. It had no place here in this fine, clean hour; no place in her life ever. It was done with. 'Archer—" She looked up at him pleadingly. "You aren't angry at me " tTE smiled then. "I could never be angry with you. Oh, about the canoe, of course—but that was different. A woman's only a woman but a good canoe is a way of getting across the water. No—" He dropped all the ban- ter—"f'm not angry with you, my darling. I'll never feel any different where you're concerned. You don't need me to tell you this, surely. You're always tops with me, Lilith—always have been. And whenever you need 'me, why—just whistle." "And it will make no difference in our friendship?" "When you go to,the wigwam of the proud Potlowallamy chief, Eagle From Over the Water will sulk in his own hogan lor a while, in his mud-wall hogan beside the Laughing Water, but presently, maybe on ground-hog day, he'll poke his nose out and call for a noggin of firewater." "Oh, Archcrl What can I do with you—?" "Just about everything. Your slave, madame. But I must noedf Jest with you. Can't you see my heart Is breaking?" And he \v,isn'l smiling then. (I.
