EPISODE

put his arm round her nor took her hand and when he walked her home he never said a word.
" You're very quiet tonight, Fred," she said at last. "What's the matter with you?"
He walked a few steps before he answered.
" I don't like to tell you."
She stopped suddenly and looked up at him. There was terror on her face.
" Tell me whatever it is," she said unsteadily.
" I'm gone, I can't help myself, I'm so stuck on you I can't see straight. I didn't know what it was to love like I love you."
" Oh, is that all? You gave me such a fright. I thought you were going to say you were going to be married."
" Me? Who d'you take me for? It's you I want to marry."
" Well, what's to prevent you, silly?"
" Gracie! D'you mean it?"
He flung his arms round her and kissed her full on the mouth. She didn't resist. She returned his kiss and he felt in her a passiorn as eager as his own.
They arranged that Gracie should tell her parents that she was engaged to him and that on the Sunday he should come and be introduced to them. Since the shop stayed open late on Saturday and by the time Mr. Carter got home he was tired out, it was not till after dinner on Sunday that Gracie broke her news. George Carter was a brisk, not very tall man, but sturdy, with a high colour, who with increasing prosperity had put on weight. He was more than rather bald and he had a bristle of grey moustache. Like many another employer who has risen from the working class he was a slave-driver and he got as much work out of his assistants for as little money as was possible. He had an eye for everything and he wouldn't put up with any nonsense, but he was reasonable and even kindly, so that they did not dislike him. Mrs. Carter was a quiet, nice woman, with a pleasant face and the remains of good looks. They were both in the early fifties, for they had married late after "walking out" for nearly ten years.
