He had never seen the play and it was all new to him. He had always adored his niece and he was delighted to watch her highly original' interpretation of her part. "Dear me!" Miss Tait saw her too "That child! I'm wondering now if we really should have given her such a part. She simply lives it. I sincerely hope she doesn't think she has to go out •nd disgrace the school! 1 ' Gavin choked on that one,, so did Avis. "I think," said Avis, "that Tailer is rather wishing Rhe'd chosen TJttie Women 1 or The Patsy.' She was pretty broad-minded when she was in the S. J. A. B.; but now she's reverted to type." Gavin had brought good news back from New York. Some parts o( the book had sold to a magazine and the book publishers were definitely committed to its publication in the spring. "They liked the writing," he told Lilith prcudly, "and I could say to you, like Stevenson: Take thou the writing, thine it Is—'" "None of it that really counts, Gavin." "But ft really was you who "burnished the sword, blew on th« drowsy coal, held still the target higher— 1 " "I'm glad, and I'm proud, even to have you think I helped." "If I can always have you at my rjght hand, the way won't tver be too hard." Lilith came sometimes to the great old Wayland house, which, Gavin said, must have a real face lifting and streamlining to accommodate the new crop of Waylands. Odd, she thought—there Is the house thai Giles would have brought me to. And 1 shall be its chatelaine after all and shall know love in it and bear children in it and see them grow— And the ghost of Ctlu will walk here too, she thought—>an unfriendly spirit perhaps. She wondered if Giles had died're- senting her, even hating her. It was in him, as it was in Gavin, to hate as thoroughly as he could love. "Show me the man who can f t do a thorough job of hating," he used to say, "and I'll show you a man who can't really love, for the emolions are too close akin." She didn't think Gavin had that philosophy as deeply , ingrained in him as In Giles. With Giles it had been sort of a religion and his was also the eye for an eye, tooth for i tooth credo, and with him there was no forgiving an injury. It was the fear that perhaps Gavin would be the samt that kept her from telling him about Giles, that made her postpone the confession from day to day, from week to week, making it harder and more repellent with time's swift passage. • • • "DUT It must be told before she " could stand beside him at the altar and make the vows that she would have made with his brother. Would he want them after he knew? Would they be the same to him or would he think: "These belonged to Gilei." They had told no one (bout their engagement. Only Archer, who needed no telling about anything that concerned Lilith, knew aboul it But Avis guessed, and Peg, and in the school and the village everybody was happy about it as it seemed only natural and in true Hollywood tridition that, having saved her life, Gavin should fall in love with her and marry her. He had brought her > rlnf, > lovely emerald, which she did not wear. "It will distract the class too much, Gavin. You have no idei how wildly romantic those girls are. They talk about modern youth nnd call It hard- boiled, cynical and but these girls, believe me are even more starry-eyed about love than their mothers and grandmothers. The more they pretend to consider love something 'strictly for the birds 1 the more they revel in it No, my lord, the lovely emerald that I adore" stays on the little altar in my room that I have made for it, locked in its little box." "When is it to be?" Avis sat in the back of the school auditorium with her. They had been discussing the sets for Crosskeys. "I mean the grand march up the aisle for you and Gavin." "1 don't know. We haven 1 !—" "Haven't decided on the date yet, eh? The betting is on June or early July, and in the chapel at St Bride's. The Waylands always get married in St Bride's. That's where Giles and 1—" She stopped, remembering that day, perhaps wondering, still uncomprehending, what had happened to those high vows they had spoken there. She laughed mirthlessly and murmured, "I do." Lilith looked at her curiously in the dimness of the big hall. "Are you rehearsing or reminiscing?" "Reminiscing, darling. For me, I fear, the rehearsals are out. The play is ended." • • • "CORRYI 1 didn't know it " would bother you so much. 1 left another boy when 1 married Giles—a fair-haired quiet chap. I'd like to say he never married, but he did—the very next month, the lousel This love business can be an awful headache,'* "Well, they haven't found anything yet that seems to substitute for it. I think most of the trouble comes from expecting too much from love and marriage and not putting enough into it." "There speaks the as yel unmarried. It's not so simple a* all that In fact, it's not simple at all. There's always an un- balance—ont who kisses, one who turns the check; one who gives, one who takes. It has to bt like that. If one side loves ai much ts the other, they destroy each other." (T* U* Continued) Television— Tonite, Tomorrow VVMCT, Memphis.
