TREACHERY

When dinner was over, they all departed to their stations in the reception rooms ; and Prince Gustave, who had not found the opportunity to do more than just greet his nephew, signalled now for him to join him. All through dinner he had been secretly observing Carl, and already was beginning to suspect his attitude towards Veronica. This did not please him. Nor, as he knew, did it suit the plans of the Queen (of which Carl was as yet ignorant). The crafty old diplomat had not been slow to notice the look of dejection on the face of Ajax-and divined its reason. Of course Veronica had noticed it too ; and it pleased her immensely. Ajax was such a dear; but so very shy! It suited her to have such an attractive young man as the Prince, to make love to her-it would make Ajax jealous! She thought she knew the way it would all work out. So when Carl asked permission to obey his uncle's call, Veronica smiled at Ajax who stood some distance away. He was by her side in a moment!
" Carl," began his uncle, when they had withdrawn to one side. " Where is Erfurt? Why did he not accompany you? "
" Well, Uncle," said Carl, rather taken back at the tone of voice. " I'm afraid we had rather an unpleasant experience, just before I left."
Then he told the Ambassador how he and the Baron had been affected by an extraordinary sleepiness, just before they were due to leave for London. Whilst he was speaking, Prince Gustave was very silent ; but he watched his nephew narrowly all the time. He thought he noticed a strange air of detachment about him, somehow or other. He had never noticed it before. It might have been, of course, the effect of this attack of sleepy sickness; but it looked very different from anything he had ever seen about the boy before. He
