"Oh," she muttered. "A little longer with him, a few more questions, even another 'Is there something the matter, Lilith?'— and I think I 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 1 should find out that I am right—" She went back to the reading of the pages, trying with 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 Alouette 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 L'arousse was a red leather folder beautifully hand-tooled and embossed and much too lovely for a woman to pass up. She reached lor 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 flowerliko mouth with its come- kiss-me curves— The (ace, even In the tinted photo, seemed to smile mockingly at her. to gloat over her She siarcrl at it as if hypnotised, and it blurred and becani* clear again and blurred again. A shaft of sunlight shone upon it like 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—"1 would this night hedge thee within my arms. —Poppaea." She mapped 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. 46 "V"OU 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 a 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 myself and looked at his name and wondered if 1 too had done the bnt 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, 1 guess- all of us women who<-have dealings with men, who love and are loved. But what'i the use of reproaching ourselves or of regretting or speculating about it when K'j all done?—'They shall not grow old.' I'll look in my mirror tome day and ice an old beat-up hag of a woman, but the man who looks over my sVioultlc —Uier« it on* who looiu over 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 Uttl* while, Avis—but that little while can be so sweet and can hav« such wonderfully happy hours. And they are so few at best. It'I cruel when even the few are denied to so many. And these men had so little, Giles had so little—" "Even ot you and me," murmured Avis. "I miss Giles and have always missed him and always will. I have my dark moments—the days when 1 think 1 wasn't much of a wife. It's always so easy to think of th« things you might have done—I could have tried harder when we started out. Perhaps then w« 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 1 dont think she quite qualifies." "You mean ihe loved him not with a love like ours." "Definitely not like ours. Maybe—if you want to look at It one way—she loved him more deeply than 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 Ewart?" "No one else. And I wish I could forget her. I wish I had never seen her." «W-e-e-i-l! You do feel strongly on the subject of the luscious Poppy? I gather she was quite I dish." "Topped with cloltwl cream, glace cherries, crushed pomegranate and nuts." "Nuts to her from us," said Avis inelegantly. "Want any help hating her, sister - under - the- skin?" "Nono whatever." (I* B» Television— Tonite, Tomorrow WMCT, Memphis. Channel 5 WEDNESDAY NIGHT, SEPT.
