Saint's Progress

experience puzzled her, kept her instincts painfully on the alert. It was perhaps just this uncertainty about his affection which made him seem more precious than any of the others. But there was ever the other reason, too consciousness that Time was after her, and this her last grand passion. She watched him as a mother-cat watches her kitten, without seeming to, of course, for she had much experience. She had begun to have a curious secret jealousy of Noell though why-she could not have said. It was perhaps merely incidental to her age, or sprang from that vague resemblance between her and one who outrivalled even what she had been as a girl; or from the occasional allusions Fort made to what he called `that little fairy princess'. Something intangible, instinctive, gave her that jealousy. Until the death of her young cousin's lover she had felt safe, for she knew that Jimmy Fort would not hanker after another man's property; had he not proved that in old days, with herself, by running away from her? And she had often regretted having told him of Cyril Morland's death. One day she determined to repair that error. It was at the Zoo, where they often went on Sunday afternoons. They were standing before a creature called the meercat, which reminded them both of old days on the veldt. Without turning her head she said, as if to the little animal: `Do you know that your fairy princess, as you call her, is going to have what is known as a war-baby?'
The sound of his `Whatl' gave her quite a stab. It was so utterly horrified.
She said stubbornly: `She came and told me all about it. The boy is dead, as you know. Yes, terrible, isn't it?' And she looked at him. His face was almost comic, so wrinkled up with incredulity.
`That lovely childl But it's impossible!'
`The impossible is sometimes true, Jimmy.'
