She whispered against his cheek. against "Don't— please don't love me less. I feel that I've spoilec things for us. I know it isn't the same now and I'm afraid it wil never be again what U was — oui love." "It will be better, stronger," he assured her. "This will make no difference. In a liltle while we'll forget. V'hat was it anyway that it should ever threaten our happiness! Let's have more of it." "Will you talk to Peg and Avis? Tell them as much as you can, as much as you need to convince them that I wasn't unfair to Giles. Peg— the way she looked at me tonight." "Peg is a brat. Don't fret. I'll lay down the law to them both. Don't worry, Lilith, it will be all right, I promise you." "I hope so. You make me feel .better. I do so want their friend,ship. I felt sick all through that play, all the time I was flaunting myself about and laughing and acting like > light o' love. I knew what I was doing. I knew that with each word, each gesture, .each bit of business, I was digging my grave— a nice deep igrave in which they would bury ithe Lilith Graeme they had liked l»o much." "They , liked you. No matter •what, they thought your, performance was something out of this world. Believe me. I was spellbound and I was already pretty well aware of the fact that you were — well, 'you were something, special. But the teachers, : lhe student! and all those who knew you and more or less took you for granted as 'that quiet little English girl, Miss Graeme' —well, I think they all but fell out of, their MgU when they uw you making like Betty Button. You know, I think it's rather a good thing that your brief time at Edgemere is ending nexl month. Those glasses and the Auk's nest will never again in this wide world fool anybody." "I'll be sorry when it ends I've come to love the place. Maybe they'll let me teach a few classes." "Maybe—If your husband can spare you. I'm afraid I'll be greedy of your time. I'll want it all for myself. Will you come tomorrow and tell the workmen what you want done with our house? And will you wear the ring I gave you?" "Gladly now, Gavin. I—I was a little uncertain, you see. I didn't know how much you would like me after you found out about Giles and me. I shouldn't have let myself think like that, I suppose. Knowing you as I did, I should have trusted your love—" "Yes," he said grimly. "You should have indeed." "After —after Giles —what happened then—I was afraid of men, afraid to trust." HEY were waiting for her—Miss Tait, Miss Vance, Miss Gale and the rest. They were drinking tea in the principal's sitting room and looked rather like, a hung jury. "My dear " • Miss Tait wore her blue velvet and had her glasses on a matching ribbon. "I must congratulate you on a most wonderful Rerformance. Little did we realize that we had In our midst, In such an. unobtrusive person as yourself, «n actress of such great skill. You had us crying, laughing, loving, hating, just as If you played on one's emotioni at on the airings of a harp." "You are'kind, Miss Tait." She smiled at the others who she knew were kind, and bowed to the critics. "I don't deserve a great deal tf credit foe what I did, I was very familiar with the play." "One would think," came from Miss Stenton—money and banking—"that you'd been born in a trunk. Isn't that the quaint way they say that one has the stage in one's blood? And the way you acted the part of that hard young girl-" "Would make one think I'd been a hard young girl myself?" "Oh, Miss Graeme—nothing like that. It was just that it really did give us a shock to see our very proper English instructress suddenly turning by the alchemy of the footlights into a creature of another world. Really, it frightened me—like Dr. Jekyll turning into that dreadful Mr. Hyde." • * • "T DON'T know whether to feel flattered or abashed," said Lilith. "I was on the London stage brieflly and, I assure you quite respectedly, under the name of Lesley Gray—" "Now I recall you!" Miss Tait et her glasses drop almost into her teacup. "You played the part of Diana at the Empire in London during the last year of the war. I saw you. I loved the play. But, my dear child, why didn't you tell us who you were? Here, all this time, we've had » celebrity In our midst—" "But I'm not. I left the stage after Crosskeys finished Its run. I shall never, I think, go back to Tonight, of course, I had no choice. I couldn't let the company down and Peg Wayland wasn't able to go on. She will play the part at the Drama Festival, play t quite as I did—probably better, for she will bring to it the freshneas that I may have lost." "Oh, never," tald Mlsi Tait "Here now, have some tea wilh us. And tell us—we don't wish to pry—but you and Gavin Wayland—" "I think you know It already," sold Lilith wearily. "Mr. Wayland and I are engaged. We hope to be married in St. Bride'i Chapel on June 24. You are all nvitcd, of course, and I do hope you will come."
