THE KITE

made and tried it out one afternoon, but it wasn't a success. He was a stubborn boy and he wasn't going to be beaten. Something was wrong, and it was up to him to put it right.
Then an unfortunate thing happened. Herbert began to go out after supper. Mrs. Sunbury didn't like it much, but Mr. Sunbury reasoned with her. After all, the boy was twenty-two, and it must be dull for him to stay at home all the time. If he wanted to go for a walk or see a movie there was no great harm. Herbert had fallen in love. One Saturday evening, after they'd had a wonderful time on the common, while they were at supper, out of a clear sky he said suddenly:
" Mum, I've asked a young lady to come in to tea tomorrow. Is that all right?"
" You done what?" said Mrs. Sunbury, for a moment forgetting her grammar.
" You heard, Mum."
" And may I ask who she is and how you got to know her ?"
" Her name's Bevan, Betty Bevan, and I met her first at the pictures one Saturday afternoon when it was raining. It was an accident like. She was sitting next me and she dropped her bag and I picked it up and she said thank you and so naturally we got talking."
" And d'you mean to tell me you fell for an old trick like that? Dropped her bag indeed!"
" You're making a mistake, Mum, she's a nice girl, she is really, and well educated too."
" And when did all this happen?"
" About three months ago."
" Oh, you met her three months ago and you've asked her to come to tea tomorrow?"
" Well, I've seen her since of course. That first day, after the show, I asked her if she'd come to the pictures with me on the Tuesday evening, and she said she didn't know, perhaps she would and perhaps she wouldn't. But she came all right."
" She would. I could have told you that."
