Saint's Progress

staring at nothing. Then he rose, folded the rug mechanically, and looked at the clock. Eight! He went upstairs, knocked on Noel's door, and entered.
The blinds were drawn up, but she was still in bed. He stood looking down at her. `A Happy New Year, my child!' he said; and he trembled all over, shivering visibly. She looked so young and innocent, so round-faced and fresh, after her night's sleep, that the thought sprang up in him again: `It must have been a dream!' She did not move, but a slow flush came up in her cheeks. No dream-no dream! He said tremulously: `I can't realize. I-I hoped I had heard wrong. Didn't I, Nollie? Didn't I?'
She just shook her head.
`Tell me everything,' he said; `for God's sake!'
He saw her lips moving, and caught the murmur: `There's nothing more. Gratian and George know, and Leila. It can't be undone, Daddy. Perhaps I wouldn't have wanted to make sure, if you hadn't tried to stop Cyril and me-and I'm glad sometimes, because I shall have something of his ...' She looked up at him. `After all, it's the same, really; only, there's no ring. It's no good talking to me now, as if I hadn't been thinking of this for ages. I'm used to anything you can say; I've said it to myself, you see. There's nothing but to make the best of it.'
Her hot hand came out from under the bed-clothes, and clutched his very tight. Her flush had deepened, and her eyes seemed to him to glitter.
`Oh, Daddy! You do look tired! Haven't you been to bed? Poor Daddy!'
That hot clutch, and the words: `Poor Daddy!' brought tears into his eyes. They rolled slowly down to his beard, and he covered his face with the other hand. Her grip tightened convulsively; suddenly she dragged it to her lips, kissed it, and let it drop.
`Don't!' she said, and turned away her face.
