Beside the Laughing Water A Romance by LOUIS ARTHUR CUNNINGHAM XXIX r PHEY worked on the proofs through the long afternoon "Maybe," said Gavin, "the book will be in the book shops when we go to New York on our honeymoon. I can't imagine a greater thrill than to see a window full p of Korean Karousel—" j "I can," smiled Lilith. "Seeing ; a window empty of it, after .they've sold the las.t of a thousand .they had on display." i "Wow! And you were talking I about the unrealistic approach to the arts. Don't you know that first books 'aren't supposed to sell? They're to be given, autographed,, to relatives and friends to prove you're an author." ; "It's not going to be like that I with our book," she insisted, and ] Gavin marveled at the faith of women and how they can make | themselves believe the most far- l fetched things if it suits their j purpose. "Anyway, you're going to sell some here. It's required reading—or it's going to be—in the English classes at Edgemere and St. Bride's and of course everybody in town 'would want a copy. We killed two birds, you see, by having your by-line and having the book dedicated to me." Gavin shook his head in silent admiration. "We may also be able to have it mentioned in the Drama Festival. Maybe Garrel Kane would casually allude to the nourishing condition ol the other arts—" "What about having a nice set of sandwich-boards made to wear with your going-away suit?" "We'll do better. We'll have an ad chalked on the back of the car along with 'Just Married'." While Gavin dressed to go to town, Lilith read on slowly, painstakingly, careful of every comma, every dubious spelling, every broken Idler or bit of smudged tjpe. This was their hook, hers anrt C'.'Vin's. their baby and it ma-.t l /o pc"fi->.t. Six T.-u Iwt in t!:e tur flow tt the words, carried away to the distant war-ravaged land. She did not know how long it had been going on and for a dazed moment or two she thought she had been dreaming it—that song she would always hear and, recall old bitter things— "Je te plumerai la tete—" Gavin, singing up there in his room—that clear rich baritone. But— "I'm—a—I'm a fool!" she muttered. "How could I imagine—" • • • OUT the voice was so much like that other voice that she had heard singing this old Canadian song that long ago day in Westerham Mews—Giles Wayland's voice. As the same rollicking chanson du pays went on and on there carne to her another startling, troubled thought: Giles had been a poor singer, not able to carry a tune very well, but Gavin's voice was true and deep and resonant—and so, above the rush of the shower even, had been that other voice— She knew with a numbness creeping over her, into her heart, into the depths of her, where lht«e thoughts were leading. Of all the insensate folly! H was the craziest thing in the world and yet— She looked up at the window from which the singing came and now indeed her heart, seemed to stop .its rapid beat, and to falter and then go thundering on. He was looking out the window, talking to one of the workmen, and the red head, the jot of the shoulders—they were Giles. They were so much iilrt hfn brother that she closed he- eyes and opened them again to «« It it would seem any different. "It could have been," she whispered. "Oh, it could have been. But he would not—but it was one of them—it had to be one of them and if it was he—" "Alouette, je te plumoral." Ht had r«tuun«d UM tcoj tf«J«, dismembering the gentle swallow —the head, the neck, the beak, the eyes, the ears and on and on— until she wanted to scream, to beg him stop it forever. Sht hated the thing. She would always hate it. But what would he, Gavin, be doing with that girl—? "Oh, don't be such a ninny!" she blazed at herself. "What would any man be doing with Poppy Ewart?" She got up from the garden seat and hurried down the path through the whispering pines to the river— • • • CHE walked to the water's edge and stood watching the little waves roll up and withdraw, breaking on the pebbles. She tried to get a grip of herself, to still these wildly racing suspicions that made a fever in her brain. She had felt like this about Giles after that morning—and if it had not been Giles—ii it had been Gavin— She had not told Gavin where it was she had found Giles. She had not mentioned Poppy Ewart. It was safe to assume that Poppy had not, that morning, mentioned her visitor and whoever had looked from the window of the flat had not seen her. But he had! She was sure he had. And she had wondered then that he had not shouted to her or given some sign of recognition, and had thought that shame had cept him quiet. 'I can't—can't go on thinking like this. I don't know what to do. I'll have to slop it, but I—" She sat down on an upturned dingy, covering her face with her hands. "Let the dead past bury it's dead"~what folly! These things refused to stay burled, these things that she had thought were done with long ago. She could still fancy she heard him singing. It came to her now that ihi was back where she had started from seven jeart ago. "I doubt my' love," she whispered to the whispering .pines and the laughing water. "I can't :rust my love. Oh, what to* it was he." .(It I Television— Tonite, Tomorrow WMCT, Memphis.
