THE LABYRINTHODON

things, and that and the amber sunlight made a mood for them, quiet and philosophical-a haven mood. Kipps broke a contemplative silence with an abrupt allusion to one principal preoccupation. `I shall offer an 'pology, and I shall offer 'er brother damages. If she likes to bring an action for Breach after that, well-I done all I can .... They can't get much out of reading my letters in court, because I didn't write none. I dessay a thousan' or two'll settle all that, anyhow. I ain't much worried about that. That don't worry me very much, Ann-No.'
And then, `It's a lark our marrying.
`It's curious 'ow things come about. If I 'adn't run against you, where should I 'ave been now-eh? .... Even after we met I didn't seem to see it like-not marrying you, I rnean-until that night I came. I didn't-reely.'
`I didn't neither,' said Ann, with thoughtful eyes on the water.

`Suited? No fear! That's jest it. `Ow did it come about?'
`I expect she led you on,' said Ann.
Kipps was half minded to assent. Then he had a twinge of conscience. `It wasn't that, Ann,' he said. `It's curious. I don't know what it was, but it wasn't that. I don't recollect .... No Life's jolly rum; that's one thing, any'ow. And I suppose I'm a rum sort of feller. I get excited sometimes, and then I don't seem to care what I do.
That's about what it was reely. Still '
They meditated, Kipps with his arms folded and pulling at his scanty moustache. Presently a faint smile came over his face.
`We'll get a nice little 'Ouse out 'Ithe way.'
`It's 'omelier than Folkestone,' said Ann.
`Jest a nice little 'Ouse,' said Kipps. `There's Hughenden, of course. But that's let. Besides being miles too big. And I wouldn't live in Folkestone again some'ow-not for anything.'
