THE KITE

"Hulloa."
" I want to talk to my husband alone, Mr. Sunbury."
" There's nothing you've got to say to me that my dad can't hear," said Herbert sullenly.
She hesitated. Mr. Sunbury fidgeted. He didn't know whether to stay or go.
" All right, then," she said. "I want you to come back home, Herb. I didn't mean it that night when I packed your bag. I only did it to frighten you. I was in a temper. I'm sorry for what I did. It's all so silly, quarrelling about a kite."
" Well, I'm not coming back, see. When you turned me out you did me the best turn you ever did me."
Tears began to trickle down Betty's cheeks.

" Thank you very much, but it's not good enough. I know when I'm well off and I've had enough of married life to last me a lifetime. Come on, Dad."
They walked on quickly and Betty made no attempt to follow them. On the following Sunday they went to chapel and after dinner Herbert went to the coal-shed where they kept the kite to have a look at it. He just couldn't keep away from it. He doted on it. In a minute he rushed back, his face white, with a hatchet in his hand.
" She's smashed it up. She did it with this."
The Sunburys gave a cry of consternation and hurried to the coal-shed. What Herbert had said was true. The kite, the new, expensive kite, was in fragments. It had been savagely attacked with the hatchet, the woodwork was all in pieces, the reel was hacked to bits.
" She must have done it while we were at chapel. Watched us go out, that's what she did."
" But how did she get in?" asked Mr. Sunbury.
" I had two keys. When I came home I noticed one was missing, but I didn't think anything about it.'
