Saint's Progress

Thirza looked at him anxiously.
`And no dinner!' he said suddenly. `What d'you think they've been doing with themselves?'
`Holding each other's hands, poor dears ! D'you know what time it is, Bob? Nearly one o'clock.'
`Well, all I can say is, I've had a wretched evening. Get to bed, old girl. You'll be fit for nothing.'

Noel reached her father's house next day late in the afternoon. There was a letter in the hall for her. She tore it open, and read:
`MY DARLING LOVE,
`I got back all right, and am posting this at once to tell you we shall pass through London, and go from Charing Cross, I expect about nine o'clock to-night. I shall look out for you, there, in case you are up in time. Every minute I think of you, and of last night. Oh! Noel!
`Your devoted lover, `C.'

She looked at the wrist-watch which, like every other little patriot, she possessed. Past seven! If she waited, Gratian or her father would seize on her.
`Take my things up, Dinah. I've got a headache from travelling; I'm going to walk it off. Perhaps I shan't be in till past nine or so. Give my love to them all.'
`Oh, Miss Noel, you can't. . .'
But Noel was gone. She walked towards Charing Cross; and, to kill time, went into a restaurant and had that simple repast, coffee and a bun, which those in love would always take if Society did not forcibly feed them on other things.
