Main Phone 3647 Beside the Laughing Water A Romance by LOUIS ARTHUR CUNNINGHAM , XXXI T ILITH waved to Gavin as he drove away and got an answering wave. "Oh," she muttered. "A little longer with him, a" few more questions, even another 'Is there something the matter, Lilith?'— and 1 think 1 should have been no longer able to keep from telling him. And it wouldn't be good for either of us. There's been such complete trust, but after this, if I should find out that I am right—" She went bapk to the reading of the pages, trying wilh all her might to pin her mind down to the work in hand, but it was no use. She knew she would have to give it up. She would take the pages back to the school with her and finish them there, after the confusion of her mind had settled, after the ringing echo of Alouetle had faded quite away. She gathered up the unread sheets and put them in her briefcase. She took the others up to his workroom and laid them on .his desk. She saw the big volume of Larousse. the French reference book, and remembered the*vords she wanted to check upon. Next to Larousse was a red leather folder beautifully hand-tooled and embossed and much too lovely for a woman to pass up. She reached for-it first and drew it down and opened it and it was as if she had picked up a white- hot stove lid and couldn't let it go. The too lovely, sensuous beauty, the thick black curls, the great dnrKly lashed eyes, the warm flowerlike mouth with its come- kiss-me curves— The face, even in the tinted plioto. seemed to smile mockingly at nor. to glont over her She stared at it. as if hypnotized, and it blurred and bcoun* clear again and blurred again. A shaft of sunlight shone upon it lite a spot—the kind that its original had always sought, and usually found, in night clubs and revues. She read the bold inscription at the bottom—"! would this night hedge thee within my arms. —Poppaea." She snapped the folder shut and thrust it back in its place beside Larousse. She had forgotten completely about Larousse, about everything else that did not belong to this dark moment. By the war memorial on the common she lingered for a while, idly reading the names of the dead, ending with that of Giles Wayland. • • • "VOU made a picture standing there—a lovely one—with that far-off look on your face and your head bent as if you were deep in prayer." It was Avis with the English setter, Pat, on a lead. She wore » scarlet lumberjack-shirt and gray slacks and her black hair and eyes gave her a Gypsy look. "I was . remembering Giles, wondering if I—" "I've often stood there mys«U and looked.at his name and wondered if I too had done the beet I could by him." "Yes, that's what I mean. It's awful to think you might have been Wrong, that you might have been too hasty, too slow to forgive and quick to condemn—" "Well, we all have that to reproach ourselves with, I guess- all of us women who have dealings with men, who love and are loved. But what's the use of reproaching ourselves or of regretting or speculating about it when it's all done?—'They shall not grow old.' I'll look in my mirror some day and see an old beat-up hag of a woman, but the man wlio looks over my shoulder —Uivt It oa» who lookj ow all our shoulders, you know—will still be young, fresh-faced and laughing." "Oh, I know all that—'and the worst friend and enemy is but death.' Sure, it's only a little while, Avis—but that little while can be so sweet and can have such wonderfully happy hours. And they are so few at best. It'» cruel when even the few are denied to so many. And these men had so little, Giles had so little—" "Even of you and me," murmured Avis. "1 miss Giles and have always missed him and always will. 1 have my dark moments—the days when 1 think I wasn't much of a wife, it's always so easy to think of the things you might have done—I could have tried harder when we started out. Perhaps then we could have made a go of things. But I dunno." "We seem to be sisters, you and I—" • • • "AN exclusive society, shall " we say, called 'Women Who Loved Giles.' No kidding, there were some others, weren't there?" "Yes—at least one. But I don't think she quite qualifies." "You mean she loved him not with > love like ours." "Definitely not like ours. Maybe—If you want to look at it one way—she loved him more deeply thin either of us. She loved him enough to lie, cheat, steal— do about anything—or is that love?" 'Sort of a.madness, I'd call it. You're talking about this Swart?" "No one else. And I wish I could forget her. I wish I had never seen her." «W-e-e-l-l! You do leel strongly on the subject of the luscioul Poppy? I gather she was quite a dish." "Topped with clotted cream, glace cherries, crushed pomegranate and nuts." "Nuts to her from us," 'Mia Avis inelegantly. "Want any help hating her, lister - under - the- skin?" "None whatever."
