THE KITE

"You heard what I said. I said if you went you needn't come back. I forgot about your things. Everything's packed. It's in the bedroom."
He looked at her for a moment with surprise. She pretended to be reading again. He would have liked to give her a good hiding.
" All right, have it your own way," he said.
He went into the bedroom. His clothes were packed in a suitcase, and there was a brown-paper parcel in which Betty had put whatever was left over. He took the bag in one hand, the parcel in the other, walked through the sitting-room without a word and out of the house. He walked to his mother's and rang the bell. She opened the door.
" I've come home, Mum," he said.
" Have you, Herbert? Your room's ready for you. Put your things down and come in. We were just sitting down to supper." They went into the dining-room. "Samuel, Herbert's come home. Run out and get a quart of beer."
Over supper and during the rest of the evening he told them the trouble he, had had with Betty.
" Well, you're well out of it, Herbert," said Mrs. Sunbury when he had finished. "I told you she was no wife for you. Common she is, common as dirt, and you who's always been brought up so nice."
He found it good to sleep in his own bed, the bed he'd been used to all his life, and to come down to breakfast on the Sunday morning, unshaved and unwashed, and read the News of the World.
" We won't go to chapel this morning," said Mrs. Sunbury. "It's been an upset to you, Herbert; we'll all take it easy today."
During the week they talked a lot about the kite, but they also talked a lot about Betty. They discussed what she would do next.
" She'll try and get you back," said Mrs. Sunbury.
" A fat chance she's got of doing that," said Herbert.
" You'll have to provide for her," said his father.
