Saint's Progress

`A very sudden, short engagement; but I'm afraid she takes it desperately to heart. I don't know how to comfort her; only a woman could. I came to ask you: Do you think she ought to go on with her work? What do you think, Leila? I feel lost!'
Leila, gazing at him, thought: `Lost? Yes, you look lost, my poor Edward!'
`I should let her go on,' she said: `it helps; it's the only thing that does help. I'll see if I can get them to let her come into the wards. She ought to be in touch with suffering and the men; that kitchen work will try her awfully just now. Was he very young?'
`Yes. They wanted to get married. I was opposed to it.'
Leila's lip curled ever so little. `You would be!' she thought.
`I couldn't bear to think of Nollie giving herself hastily, like that; they had only known each other three weeks. It was very hard for me, Leila. And then suddenly he was sent to the front.'
Resentment welled up in Leila. The kill-joys! As if life didn't kill joy fast enough! Her cousin's face at that moment was almost abhorrent to her, its gentle perplexed goodness da: kened and warped by that monkish look. She turned away, glanced at the clock over the hearth, and thought: `Yes, and he would stop Jimmy and mel He would say: "Oh, no! dear Leila-you mustn't love-it's sin!" How I hate that word!'
`I think the most dreadful thing in life,' she said abruptly, `is the way people suppress their natural instincts; what they suppress in themselves they make other people suppress too, if they can; and that's the cause of half the misery in this world.'
Then at the surprise on his face at this little outburst, whose cause he could not know, she added hastily: `I hope Noel will get over it quickly, and find someone else.'
