PART II - CHAPTER XVI

call her my brother's wife in courtesy to him, and yet legally she is without position until my father and my mother recognize her.
But Mrs. Liu was wholly untroubled. She seized the foreigner's hand, and the two soon talked easily, and they even laughed. I do not know what they said, since they spoke in English. But the foreigner seemed suddenly awake, and I watched her, surprised at the change. She has these two selves-one silent, remote, even a little sombre, and the other this gaiety, which yet seems too intense for joy. Watching them, I disliked Mrs. Liu for a little while because she seemed careless of the difficulty of our position. But when she rose to go she pressed my hand, and she said in our own language:
" I am sorry. It is hard for every one."
She turned and said something to the other one, something which made her dark blue eyes suddenly silvery with tears. We stood and looked at each other then, the three of us, each hesitating on speech. When without warning the foreign one turned and went swiftly from the room. Mrs. Liu watched her, her face full of quiet pity.
" It is very hard for every one," she repeated. "Is the affair between the two happy?"
