If I had even lost my temper and called her a brazen hussy, she would have forgiven me in time : a woman regards a remark like that as a sort of compliment. But-I smiled indulgently, shrugged my shoulders, and said that she would look at these things differently when she was older.
That did it. Apparently there is only one crime in this world more heinous than telling an old woman that she is old, and that is to tell a young woman that she is young. Irene got straight up and left me sitting, and went home without ever looking in my direction again that night.
Next day I called at her father's house to make my peace. I was prepared to admit that I had been an irritating young cub, and eat humble pie generally. But I was too late. She was gone ! She had bolted, in some wild fit of pique or sen.timentalism, with that long-haired exponent of Byronism - and -water, Lance Gaymer, and had married him at a Registry Office that very morn-, ing. Probably she had fallen in with his proposalsi, at the ball--after her interview with me !
Well, Hughie, I would rather pass over the next" few years. I cut her out of my scheme of things as completely as I could, and went on my way. Fortunately you began to engage my attention about that time, and I rubbed along somehow, and finally developed into the fine old crusted fogey that you know me to be.
