THE KITE

"That's what you think. Well, let me tell you that if you marry that woman you're not going to fly my kite. I never gave it you, I bought it out of the housekeeping money, and it's mine, sec."
" All right then, have it your,own way. Betty says it's a kid's game anyway and I ought to be ashamed of myself, flying a kite at my age."
He got up and and once more stalked angrily out of the house. A fortnight later he was married. Mrs. Sunbury refused to go to the wedding and wouldn't let Samuel go either. They went for their holiday and came back. They resumed their usual round. On Saturday afternoons they went to the common by themselves and flew their enormous kite. Mrs. Sunbury never mentioned her son. She was determined not to forgive him. But Mr. Sunbury used to meet him on the morning train they both took and they chatted a little when they managed to get into the same carriage. One morning Mr. Sunbury looked up at the sky.
" Good flying weather today," he said. "D'you and Mum still fly?"
" What do you think? She's getting as clever as I am. You should see her with her skirts pinned up running down the hill. I give you my word, I never knew she had it in her. Run? Why, she can run better than what I can."
" Don't make me laugh, Dad?"
" I wonder you don't buy a kite of your own, Herbert. You've been always so keen on it."
" I know I`vas. I did suggest it once, but you ;-:now what women are, Betty said: `Be your age,' and oh, I don't know what all. I don't want a kid's kite, of course, and them big kites cost money. When we started to furnish Betty said it was cheaper in the long run to buy the best and so we went to one of them hire purchase places and what with paying them every month and the rent, well, I haven't got any more money than just what we can manage oL They say it doesn't cost any more to keep two than one, well, that's not my experience so far."
