THE UNEXPECTED

Kipps was trembling slightly. `But ' he said, and thought. `If you was me ' he began. `About that Waddy ?'
He glanced up and saw the second apprentice disappear with amazing swiftness from behind the goods in the window.
`What?' asked Chitterlow, but he never had an answer.
'Lor! There's the guv'nor!' said Kipps, and made a prompt dive for the door.
He dashed in, only to discover that Shalford, with the unior apprentice in attendance, had come to mark off remnants of Kipps' cotton dresses, and was demanding him. 'Hallo, Kipps,' he said, `outside ?'
`Seein' if the window was straight, Sir,' said Kipps.
`Umph !' said Shalford.
For a space Kipps was too busily employed to think at all of Chitterlow or the crumpled bit of paper in his trouser pocket. He was, however, painfully aware of a suddenly disconnected excitement at large in the street. There came one awful momentwhen Chitterlow's nose loomed interrogatively over the ground glass ofthe department door, and his bright little red-brown eye sought for the reason of Kipps' disappearance, and then it became evident that he saw the high light of Shalford's baldness, and grasped the situation and went away. And then Kipps (with that advertisement in his pocket) was able to come back to the business in hand.
He became aware that Shalford had asked a question. 'Yessir, nosir, rightsir. I'm sorting up zephyrs to-morrow, Sir,' said Kipps.
Presently he had a moment to himself again, and, taking up a safe position behind a newly unpacked pile of summer lace curtains, he straightened out the piece of paper and re-perused it. It was a little perplexing. That `Arthur Waddy or Arthur Kipps'-did that imply two persons or one? He would ask Pearce or Buggins. Only
It had always been impressed upon him that there was something demanding secrecy about his mother.
`Don't you answer no questions about your mother,' his aunt had been wont to say. `Tell them you don't know, whatever it is they ask you.
Now, this ?
Kipps' face became portentously careful, and he tugged at his moustache, such as it was, hard.
