Saint's Progress

sweet, and so disturbing, that she sat with face averted, unable to turn the precious minutes to account.

He went up.
`Wait just a minute,' said Leila.
Sitting there with his drink and his cigarette, he stared at some sunflowers in a bowl-Famille Rose, and waited just ten; smiling a little, recalling the nose of the fairy princess, and the dainty way her lips shaped the words she spoke. If she had not had that lucky young devil of a soldier boy, one would have wanted to buckle her shoes, lay one's coat in the mud for her, or whatever they did in fairy-tales. One would have wanted-ah 1 what would one not have wantedl Hang that soldier boy! Leila said he was twenty-two. By George! how old it made a man feel who was rising forty, and tender on the off fore! No fairy princesses for him! Then a whiff of perfume came to his nostrils; and, looking up, he saw Leila standing before him, in a long garment of dark silk, whence her white arms peeped out.
`Another penny? Do you remember these things, Jimmy? The Malay women used to wear them in Cape Town. You can't think what a relief it is to get out of my slave's dress. Oh! I'm so sick of nursing! Jimmy, I want to live again a little!'
The garment had taken fifteen years off her age, and a gardenia, just where the silk crossed on her breast, seemed no whiter than her skin. He wondered whimsically whether it had dropped to her out of the dark!
`Live?' he said. `Why! Don't you always?'
She raised her hands so that the dark silk fell back from the whole length of those white arms.
