SANATORIUM

at length. "I haven't heard you play for a fortnight." "I haven't."
" Why not?"
" It's no fun any more. I used to get a kick out of playing because I knew it maddened McLeod. But now nobody cares if I play or not. I shall never play again."
Nor did he for all the rest of the time that Ashenden was at the sanatorium. It was strange, now that McLeod was dead life had lost its savour for him. With no one to quarrel with, no one to infuriate, he had lost his incentive and it was plain that it would not be long before he followed his enemy to the grave.
But on Templeton McLeod's death had another effect, and one which was soon to have unexpected consequences. He talked to Ashenden about it in his cool, detached way.
" Grand, passing out like that in his moment of triumph. I can't make out why everyone got in such a state about it. He'd been here for years, hadn't he?"
" Eighteen, I believe."
" I wonder if it's worth it. I wonder if it's not better to

" I suppose it depends on how much you value life." "But is this life?"

" D'you know what I've done?" asked Templeton. "I've asked Ivy to marry me."
Ashenden was startled.
" What did she say?"
" Bless her little heart, she said it was the most ridiculous idea she'd ever heard in her life and I was crazy to think of such a thing."
" You must admit she was right."
" Quite. But she's going to marry me."
