TRAGEDY

Night came in due course, and the three arrived early at the scene of festivities all ready to enjoy themselves. They had arranged to meet Carl there. It was, however, not until nearly ten o'clock that he arrived ; and although he gave no explanation, Baron Erfurt, who came with him, told Bunny on the quiet, that he had only managed with the greatest difficulty to get him there at all. He had said he was waiting for a message.
This surprised Bunny more than ever; for he was well aware of the Prince's fondness for dancing. No message would have delayed him a week ago! But his conscience pricked him. After all, Carl was not really well. He wished the Baron had stayed instead of returning home to bed, leaving the Prince in Bunny's care. Bunny wondered if he could help Carl. He did not wish to interfere, but it might be of use if he offered his sympathy. But Veronica had her own plans too, and he never got the opportunity he sought. Tragedy lurked in the air, and it soon began to show itself. ... Veronica had danced twice with her brother already and once with Ajax before the Prince came and asked her to favour him ; and, annoyed though she was at his discourtesy, she had mapped out her line of action and was determined to stick to it. So it happened that, after their dance, the Prince found himself being irresistibly led away from the ball room, out to the playing fields down by the river. The dance itself was being held in a great marquee pitched over the Library Court-and a very impressive setting it provided ! But it was not half so romantic as the scene which now presented itself. Across the moonlit space stretched away before them, they could see the river in the near distance. Its sparkling water fringed with feathery trees looked almost fairylike by the light of the glorious summer night. It was just made for `love' and
