ENGAGED

those times when there seems to be no future, when Time has stopped and we are at the end. Kipps that evening could not have imagined a to-morrow; all that his imagiation had pointed towards was attained. His mind stood still, and took the moments as they came.

§ 4
About nine that night Coote came round to Kipps' new apartment in the Upper Sandgate Road-the house on the Leas had been let furnished and Kipps made an effort towards realisation. He was discovered sitting at the open window and without a lamp-quite still. Coote was deeply moved, and he pressed Kipps' palm and laid a knobby white hand on his shoulder, and displayed the sort of tenderness becoming in a crisis. Kipps, too, was moved that night and treated Coote like a very dear brother.
`She's splendid,' said Coote, coming to it abruptly.
`Isn't she?' said Kipps.
`I couldn't help noticing her face,' said Coote. ...`You know, my dear Kipps, this is better than a legacy.'
`I don't deserve it,' said Kipps.
`You can't say that.'
`I don't. I can't 'ardly believe it. I can't believe it at all. No!'
There followed an expressive stillness.
`It's wonderful,' said Kipps. `It takes me like that.'
Coote made a faint blowing noise, and so again they came for a time on silence.
`And it began-before your money?'
`When I was in 'er class,' said Kipps solemnly.
Coote speaking out of a darkness which he was illuminating strangely with efforts to strike a match, said it was beautiful. He could not have wished Kipps a better fortune.
He lit a cigarette, and Kipps was moved to the same, with a sacramental expression.
Presently speech flowed more freely.
Coote began to praise Helen, and her mother and brother; he talked of when `it' might be; he presented the thing as ~ concrete and credible. `It's a county family, you know,' he said. `She is connected, you know, with the Beaupres family-you know Lord Beaupres.'
