TREACHERY

company filed into the dining apartment Ajax eagerly sought his place at the magnificent old Chippendale table, polished till it reflected like a mirror. He hoped against hope that he would find himself next to Veronica. The place he coveted, however, was occupied by Prince Carl ; and he was compelled to sit where a little card with his name on indicated his position-between an elderly aunt of the family who was stone deaf, and Katharine Mornington, Bunny's cousin. She was a delightfully pretty girl, but she added insult to injury by concentrating all her charms on Bunny, who was on her right. Ajax was pretty miserable, and tried to console himself by absorbing the `atmosphere' of the room.
It really was a wonderful atmosphere, too ! The long apartment was panelled throughout with magnificent mahogany, which glistened richly in the brilliance of the lights. Illumination came from tall tapering candles which shone in great silver candelabra placed at frequent intervals down the long polished table. From the walls the old dull paintings of past generations of the d'Harlecourts looked down upon the historic scene below. One could almost imagine in the flickering shadows (caused by the movements of the deft footmen who waited on the guests) that they were nodding their approval in conscious pride.
But Ajax began to rebel. The sparkling glass, the shimmering silver, the exotic scent of the roses in the massive bowls, all got into his blood, and translated themselves into a wild longing for Veronica. It was not fair, he decided, that he should be treated in this way. Why! ever since before dinner, she had made a dead set at the Prince. Such is love ! and thus the way of lovers !
But his turn was soon to come.
