That was one of the things 1 was uncertain about, I recall And one I fearad. How 1 wa: going to face not only Avis, but two children like you and Rowan who would resent me and always look on me as an interloper." "It wouldn't have been like We all would have loved But anyway, it wasn't to that. you. be. was it? I hope you'll find all you lost with Gavin. You like Gavin a lot, don't you? May 1 see your ring? I know you have it. for I sawhim looking at rings in Birk's and he spied me and got red." i Lilith took the emerald from ithe little silver coffer where she ,'kept some rings and bracelets and a cameo that had belonged ' to her mother. She slipped the lovely emerald in its red gold setting onto her finger. The girl's eyes shone. "Oh, it's lovely. It's like green fire. I hope 1 shall have one someday." i Lilith smiled at her. "Avis told me y6u had decided not to marry — ever. Have you changed 'your mind?" The white checks flushed. She laughed i.hen. "Oh, 1 don't know. You ' make up your mind that you'll be a nurse or a business executive or a scientist and that that will be enough for you without men, but all the time you're thinking of someone — you don't even know what he looks like — who may come along and— bang! —there goes the ball game." "That's the way it i*. Appar- ently it's a game that has no rules, no fixed laws, and it can hurt you or make you the happiest person in the world." "It's made you very happy, I know." "Yes. It's all right now. Last night it wasn't so good. I thought I'd spoiled a lot of lovely things. And today wasn't much better— until you came. You've made it all perfect again, Peg. I should never want to lose your friendship. It was really the flrst one ] made in this country and I treasure it." "You kept my sketch—the one I made of you." She got up cars- fully and walked over to the book shelves. "I did have you about right too, didn't I? Old Hawkshaw Peggy. 1 wondered what you were up to—a she- wolf in lambskin or, better, a butterfly disguised as a moth." • • • «T WAS being Lilith Graeme, teacher )f English ati'fedge- mere School for Girls — simply that. I'd long since ceased being Lesley Gray anyhow. Maybe I overplayed the school teacher Dusiness, but you see 1 was new lere and ftrst impressions are the thing. You know—" She laughed —"we redheads are handicapped in a way . If we have even (air looks along with the crown of gold, other women tend to dis- :rust us and start tightening the reins on their menfolk. It seems to me 1 heard one of my students putting forth the thesis that red- leads have been the most famous women of history—" Pegdaughed too. "Yes, and of course'you were right about the bad hats being redheads too. Still. 1 like being one. don't you? was foing to use some henna for the show but I'm not sure—'' "Oh, no! Your hair Is lovely it Is. ust the And .the thing. 1 upsweep is wore mine >ullcd tight in a knot for tht limi I played Diana. It gave rne a headache." There was no trouble with Avis either. They did not meet until the next day at the noonday meal. Avis sat down breezily beside her and gave her a slanted look and a sly grin. "I believe you aed my rising young Bernhardt havs become bosom buddies once more. She came home last night full ol tea and looking ali starry-eyed again. She really has aa awful crush on sou and C'm glad she got over her tizzy. You did sort of knock us off our stilts, you know. For a brief while I even debated with myself whether or not I'd keep you on my list of persons privileged to hear my puns." "I'm glad you decided in my favor. Avis." • • • «JT wasn't hard. Gavin helped along. The way he feels about you, nothing you ever did in your young life could make the least bit of difference. You might have gone around poisoning babies or burning down homes for the aged and Gavin would think it wonderful. So who am I to take umbrage—isn't that a tall one?—at you iusl because for a while you were engaged to the man I married! You didn't take him from me, you know." "I'm aware of that. And I'm glad. But do you really think a woman ever 'takes' a man away from another? It seems to me the man usually doesn't need taking. He's quite ready to go." "Oh. no. some of the dear lambs are really lured away by she wolves." Avis rattled on all through the meal and when. they left the commons showed her the new variety of trumpei daffodils in the garden old Joe PascoCy the gardener, had developed. She skipped from gardens to Giles in her easy, babbling brook fashion: "You know, much as 1 like you, 1 can't see that you and old Giles would ever have made a go of it of » chap, even when him." Oh. he was a poach 1 always though' so 1 most wanted to kill Television— Tonite, Tomorrow WMCT. Memphis.
