THE KITE

"Well, you think it over, Herbert, and if you don't come we shall quite understand."
" I'll come," said Herbert.
So next day when he got back from the City he changed from his business clothes into slacks and an old coat. Betty came into the bedroom.
" What are you doing?"
" Changing," he answered gaily. He was so excited, he couldn't keep the secret to himself. "Their new kite's come and I'm going to fly it."
" Oh no, you're not," she said. "I won't have it."
" Don't be a fool, Betty. I'm going, I tell you, and if you don't like it you can do the other thing."
" I'm not going to let you, so that's that."
She shut the door and stood in front of it. Her eyes flashed and her jaw was set. She was a little thing and he was a tall strong man. He took hold of her two arms to push her out of the way, but she kicked him violently on the shin.
" D'you want me to give you a sock on the jaw?"
" If you go you don't come back," she shouted.
He caught her up, though she struggled and kicked, threw her on to the bed and went out.
If the small box-kite had caused an excitement on the common it was nothing to what the new one caused. But it was difficult to manage, and though they ran and panted and other enthusiastic flyers helped them Herbert couldn't get it up.
" Never mind," he said, "we'll get the knack of it presently. The wind's not right today, that's all."
He went back to tea with his father and mother and they talked it over just as they had talked in the old days. He delayed going because he didn't fancy the scene Betty would make him, but when Mrs. Sunbury went into the kitchen to get supper ready he had to go home. Betty was reading the paper. She looked up.
" Your bag's packed," she said.
" My what?"
