"I'd plaj'ed the part hundreds of times. I could do it in my sleep. I'm no Heifetz—I know just the one tune. I'm no Hayes or Fontanne either. The truth is, I flopped in the next two plays, if you want to know.' "You did!" "1 did." It wasn't strictly so. The plays had flopped first, but it helped a great deal to boost Peg's morale, "I don't see how you .could ever miss. You were so wonderful and I guess I was an unruly brat to talk to you the wo* I did. Gavin says we were wrong about you, that you really weren't to blame for—for my father—for what happened." "No, Peg, I wasn't. If you will believe (hat, my dear, it will make me very happy. I couldn't bear to lose your friendship. It was one of the things I looked forward to—having you all my 'life for a friend." "You might have been sort of a second mother, mightn't you? |I wonder how you and mother ; would have hit it off if you and 'father had been married. Not so Igood, I'll bet. I think she always 'loved'him and still does. She i pretends to be looking for an' other husband, .but I know she cries sometimes—and it's not for ; any -man living. She's a lovely mother." Yes, Lilith thought, Avis seems to have done a pretty good job on you and your brother and it may be that she really loved Giles enough to regret him all her life. "And you will go on with the show, Peg?" insisted Lilith. "You have to. If I should do the pirt !aM mi br **A Viet h*. _ Sessional. I know this man Who will j'Jcige the entries.

"Rui. you really loved him, didn't you?" asked Peg wistfully. "And you didn't give him the gate because you were cruel ond heartless or didri't caye 'or him?" "Far from It. I can't tell you.

"I'm sorry 1 ever — for what 1 thought about Lesley Gray. 1 had you wrong then — so very wrong. I dug out that picture of you, from father's trunk. It's lovely.

I was only seven or eight when 1 saw him for the last time, when he was home for a month and he and mother weren't getting along too well and it wasn't much fun. He looked a lot like Gavin, only he was bigger and his hair was redder and he laughed a lot more; at least, that's the way I remember it now. He was always joking with us, carrying Rowan around on his shoulder and treating me as if I were grown-up. He was swell." "Yes. he was a grand fellow, Peg. He was just about all you'd want in a man—strong' and gentle and understanding. I had some of the happiest hours of my li/e with him—wonderful hours which we managed to snatch from the war—a sail on the river, a picnic on the downs. I was only 18—two years older than you—and I was in a heaven all my own. 1 was the happiest girl in the world. We> were all ready to be married, just a few weeks to go, and then—" • • * JHE could not go on. She could ' never tell this child what had happened—the sick horror in her heart at the sight of Poppy Ewart standing in Giles's door, the soft, derisive, laughter, the nasty words—:"Oh, darling, won't you wait to see Captain Wayland!
