THE KITE

they had taken the same lodgings. One evening, in as casual a way as he could, Herbert said:
" By the way, Mum, you'd better write and tell them I shan't be wanting my room this year. Betty and me are getting married and we're going to Southend for the honeymoon."
For a moment there was dead silence in the room.
" Bit sudden like, isn't it, Herbert?" said Mr. Sunbury uneasily.
" Well, they're cutting down at Betty's office and she's out of a job, so we thought we'd better get married at once. We've taken two rooms in Dabney Street and we're furnishing out of my Savings Bank money."
Mrs. Sunbury didn't say a word. She went deathly pale and tears rolled down her thin cheeks.
" Oh, come on, Mum, don't take it so hard," said Herbert. "A fellow has to marry sometime. If Dad hadn't married you, I shouldn't be here now, should I?"
Mrs. Sunbury brushed her tears away with an impatient hand.
" Your dad didn't marry me; I married 'im. I knew he was steady and respectable. I knew he'd make a good 'usband and father. I've never 'ad cause to regret it and no more 'as your dad. That's right, Samuel, isn't it?"
" Right as rain, Beatrice," he said quickly.
" You know, you'll like Betty when you get to know her. She's a nice girl, she is really. I believe you'd find you had a lot in common. You must give her a chance, Mum."
" She's never going to set foot in this house only over my dead body."
" That's absurd, Mum. Why, everything'll be just the same if you'll only be reasonable. I mean, we can go flying on Saturday afternoons same as we always did. Just this time I've been engaged it's been difficult. You see, she can't see what there is in kite-flying, but she'll come round to it, and after I'm married it'll be different, I mean I can come and fly with you and Dad; that stands to reason."
