XXIV ''T'HE next day was Arbor Da and there was a half-holida that Lilith welcomed. She hadn slept very well and she kne\ her eyes were shadowed, her lac drawn and tired. Probably no\ the catty ones would say was showing her years, th marks of the hectic life she liac once led—"You know what thes actresses are — cocktail parlies late nights and all the rest of i —and she doubtless had he share of it—" Lilith could count all the cock tail parties she had ever at tended and all the theater had meant for her was hard work and not much money, a deal o heartache and uncertainty. She had left it with no regreLs ant had never felt any great desire to return to it She had promised Gavin she would go to his house and see •what the carpenters and decorators were doing, but she didn 1 have much heart for it and she called him up and begged off "I'm not too happy about lasl night, Gavin," she said. "I've gol | a bit of thinking to do—" "You'll add no cubits that way," he said. "Look, please trv to forget about the unpleasantness, won't you? It will all blow over and be forgotten before the roses bloom in our garden. I've done a whale of a lot of thinking too, and it got me nowhere. Let's go back where we were such little while ago. you and 1. You know—in a lovely country of our own where it's always summer and sunshine. There's no reason why we can't. Lilith." "I'm being foolish, I know. Acting as temperamentally as the good ladies here seem to think I really should. I was quite • lioness last night when they got me indoors." "What was the Judgment?" "Sort of a hung Jury. It seems lo me. Some thought I was a shy genius, others thought I w?s probably a reformed burlesque queen. It was fun in a way. Was it really so much of a sensation?" "The whole town's talking. But it's all in your lavor.. You're the biggest thing that's happened in the local theater since before the war when we used to get Martin- Harvey, Ellaline Terris, Seymour Hicks and the like. You were really big time." "Small pond, big frog. I wish I'd kept my light under that bushel. I feel as if I'd done a ;trip-tease bishop." in front of the !HE was glad, later, that she had not gone to Gavin's hou In the quiet time of the afternoon, there was a timid knock at he door. When Lilith opened the door she saw the young girl at the head of the stairway, walking slowly, swiftly, a woolly fawn coat thrown like a cape over her shoulders. "Peg!" she called softly. "Oh, Peg—do come back, won't you?" Peg turned. The pallor of her ace made her eyes seem larger han ever, the ceji mane hung down on one side and she lookud rsgic and u injured and woefully •oung. She hesitated, then came lowly back along the corridor. "I—I thought I'd better come o see you." she said very low. I've been in a dreadful stew '* "Please come in. And sit in •liss Keightly's chair if you don't eed to nurse your ribs In « traight one." "I'll take the Kile's if you don't ind. We used to call it 'The udgment Seat. She always h»rt omeone on the carpet." She watched the girl ease hor- elf into the chair and went her- elf to sit in the window seat nly < little dittanc* away. She rendered what had brought Peg ere so soon. She couldn't jit U whether she wai forgiven or whether, for the sake of pe.-ice and tranquillity, the fiery young Wayland had decided to declare a truce. "I'm glad you came, Peg. I— well I've been in a bit of a stew myself over this business. I shouldn't have been so crude about breaking the story, but I— I didn't know what to do." I suppose not," said Peg bleakly. "For me it was like— as if I'd been a fair performer on the fiddle, say, and met a man and he let me play "or him and 1 played him pieces ihat I'd learned—like Pop Goes the Weasel.' And he said, 'My, you're a swell player, a real artist.' And I thought 1 was pretty good and some strangers eaine along then and said to him 'Why, how do you do. Mr. Heifetz. Won't you give us a tune?' And Mr. H. took my poor fiddle and made it sing through Vieux- temps' Rondino and a few etudes by Paganinni—" "pEGI Oh, my darling! I didn't know. I didn't ever intend it to do that to you, to give you that idea." "No? Well, so it was, and how dp you expect me now to stand up and play my little pieces after the great,maestro has made th« fiddle talk? How am I to go in stage and play Diana after what you did lasl night?" She shook her head. "That's why I came— to tell you I can't go on, that you'll have to do the part again—" "No." "But I tell you I can't do it— not now. I had really begun 'o Ihink I was pretty good and that I could turn in a pretty decent performance—until I saw you. I realized then that I—" "Listen, you're all wrong. You couldn't be more astray about anything. You're Diana Lane— .he real Diana—the 16-year-old trying to be worldly wise and sophisticated and being defeated by her own youth. What I did was simply what we call a tour de force—do you want to write he phrase in your book?" She smiled and PC?, began to smile ilowly. a bit mournfully.
