CHAPTER TEN

`The girl in black.'
`Who?'
`Miss Voles.'
`Who said so?' asked Reginald sharply.
`Nobody,' said Sylvia dreamily. `I just sort of knew. I thought she might have told you when you went out. It avas all right, wasn't it, darling? I mean, you did enjoy it?'

Sylvia lay sleeping, her right hand under the pillow, as was her way. The light bed-clothes had taken on her shape, so that in the midnight she seemed to be lying there unclothed. It was, to Reginald, as if nothing could come near her without rejoicing to become part of her; as if her physical beauty were such that it could never cease to express itself. No sound, no movement came from her. She had left her loveliness there to await her return in the morning.
Reginald lay on his back, awake, thinking. Of all men, Baxterl Well, but what had he done? Fallen in love, and been fallen in love with, as a very young man. Was that anything? Weren't millions of young men doing it every day? But she was a very special sort of girl, and evidently she thought him a very special sort of young man. Baxter! `And one to show a maiden ...' what was it? Two faces? - two people? - two souls? Wait a bit. ..`One to face the world with'- that's right. `And one to show a woman when he loves her.' He has two somethings, one to face the world with, and one to show a woman when he loves her. Two faces? But you wouldn't have face twice - yes, you would if you had two faces ... I mustn't go to sleep before I get this right. Pull yourself together. Isn't it

funny how one can feel one's brain slipping away at night? What about front, that would do it. He has two faces, one to front the world with, and one to show a woman when he loves her. Got it!...
Baxter's got two faces. We've all got two faces. Sylvia has one lovely face, and one I've never seen. Or have I? I don't know. Betty's got two faces. I liked Betty this evening. Lots of wives would have been jealous of that story, just because it happened before they knew their husbands. Part of the past which they have missed. But she was a dear. Betty, of all people 1 Three faces really. One to front the world with, one to show a woman - or man, of course - and one which nobody but God ever sees for more than a moment... A threefaced man ...
But Baxter! Typical man-of-the-world ... Man-abouttown ... Clubman.What's the difference between a manabout-town and a man-of-the world? And a Clubman? I'd sonner be a man-of-the-world. No I wouldn't. I'd sooner be ... I'm in a club ... on a club ... getting bigger and bigger ...
Reginald turned on to his side, his hand touched Sylvia's shoulder, and he fell asleep.
