CHAPTER ONE

out monotonously so that there was no need for Rodney to answer him or even to follow what he was saying. As they reached the end of the path, he glanced back; but there was no one in sight and he wondered to himself if the girl with the red hair was still watching him.
Actually, she was waiting till the two men reached the end of the path and then, as they disappeared in the direction of the stables, she turned to the boy lying on the smooth grass of the bowling green which lay hidden behind the lilac bushes.
" They have gone now," she said. "Do you think I can get into the house without being seen?"
" You had best be careful. If m'lady Catherine sees you looking like that, there'll be the devil to pay."
The boy spoke languidly, his eyes closed against the sun, his head supported on his crossed arms, while the girl stood hesitating.
It was obvious that they were brother and sister; they had the same red hair, the same fine bones and clear-cut features ; but there the resemblance ended, for what was lovely and feminine in the girl was weak and effeminate in the boy.
" You might go ahead of me and see if there is anyone about," the girl suggested.
" I might," he agreed, "but I am going to lie here and think about my new poem-you know visitors always bore me."
" What has he come for anyway?" she asked.
She spoke almost fiercely, and then one small hand touched her mouth and her green eyes, looking straight ahead of her, were suddenly wide and apprehensive, as if she were remembering and savouring again that kiss, the first she had ever known.
The sun coming through the branches of the tree glinted on her hair and made it seem alive, a glory of riotous curls. It was red and yet it held in it the burning gold of the heart of a fire. She was not exactly beautiful but, although she did not know it yet, her face would torment and haunt a man so that he could never forget her.
Suddenly she sat down on the grass beside her brother.
" Francis," she said in the imperative tone of one who wishes to be attended to, "I am restless. If only we could go away, if only we could get to London."
