Saint's Progress

The culprits were demure at breakfast; no one could have told that for the last hour they had been sitting with their arms round each other, watching the river flow by, talking but little, through lips too busy. Pierson pursued .his sister-in-law to the room where she did her flowers every morning. He watched her for a minute dividing ramblers from pansies, cornflowers from sweet peas, before he said: `I'm very troubled, Thirza. Nollie came to me last night. Imagine! They want to get married-those two!'
Accepting life as it came, Thirza showed no dismay, but her cheeks grew a little pinker, and her eyes a little rounder. She took up a sprig of mignonette, and said placidly: `Oh, my dear!'
`Think of it, Thirza-that child! Why, it's only a year or two since she used to sit on my knee and tickle my face with her hair.'
Thirza went on arranging her flowers.
`Noel is older than you think, Edward; she is more than her age. And real married life wouldn't begin for them till after-if it ever began.'
Pierson experienced a sort of shock. His sister-in-law's words seemed criminally light-hearted.
'But-but. ..' he stammered; `the union, Thirza! Who can tell what will happen before they come together again!'
She looked at his quivering face, and said gently: `I know, Edward; but if you refuse, I should be afraid, in these days, of what Noel might do. I told you there's a streak of desperation in her.'
`Noel will obey me.'
