THE KITE

"You'll never be able to fly it by yourselves," he said.
" We can try."
" I suppose you wouldn't like me to help you just at first?" he asked uncertainly.
" Mightn't be a bad idea," said Mrs. Sunbury.
It was late when he got home, much later than he thought, and Betty was vexed.
" Wherever have you been, Herb? I thought you were dead. Supper's waiting and everything."
" I met some fellows and got talking."
She gave him a sharp look, but didn't answer. She sulked.
After supper he suggested they should go to a movie, but she refused.
" You go if you want to," she said. "I don't care to."
On the following Saturday he went again to the common and again his mother let him fly the kite. They had ordered the new one and expected to get it in three weeks. Presently his mother said to him:
" Elizabeth is here."
" Betty?"
" Spying on you."
It gave him a nasty turn, but he put on a bold front.
" Let her spy. I don't care."
But he was nervous and wouldn't go back to tea with his parents. He went straight home. Betty was waiting for him.
" So that's the fellows you got talking to. I've been suspicious for some time, you going for a walk on Saturday afternoons, and all of a sudden I tumbled to it. Flying a kite, you, a grown man. Contemptible I call it."
" I don't care what you call it. I like it, and if you don't like it you can lump it."
" I won't have it and I tell you that straight. I'm not going to have you make a fool of yourself."
" I've flown a kite every Saturday afternoon ever since I was a kid, and I'm going to fly a kite as long as ever I want to."
