Saint's Progress

this is Monsieur Barra, a friend of ours from the front; and this is our landlady's little girl. A little refugee, too, aren't you, Chica?'
The child gave him a sudden brilliant smile and resumed her grave scrutiny of the visitor. The soldier, who had risen heavily, offered Noel one of his podgy hands, with a sad and heavy giggle.
`Sit down, mademoiselle,' said Lavendie, placing a chair for her: `I will bring my wife in,' and he went out through some double doors.
Noel sat down. The soldier had resumed his old attitude, and the little girl her nursing of the doll, though her big eyes still watched the visitor. Overcome by strangeness, Noel made no attempt to talk. And presently through the double doors the painter and his wife came in. She was a thin woman in a red wrapper, with hollow cheeks, high cheekbones, and hungry eyes; her dark hair hung loose, and one hand played restlessly with a fold of her gown. She took Noel's hand; and her uplifted eyes seemed to dig into the girl's face, to let go suddenly, and flutter.
`How do you do?' she said in English. `So Pierre brought you to see me again. I remember you so well. You would not let him paint you. Ah! que c'est drole! You are so pretty, too. Hein, Monsieur Barra, is not mademoiselle pretty?'
The soldier gave his heavy giggle, and resumed his scrutiny of the floor.
`Henriette,' said Lavendie, `asseyez-vous a cote de Chica you must not stand. Sit down, mademoiselle, I beg.'
`I'm so sorry you're not well,' said Noel, and sat down again.
The painter stood leaning against the wall, and his wife looked up at his tall, thin figure, with eyes which had in them anger, and a sort of cunning.
`A great painter, my husband, is he not?' she said to Noel. `You would not imagine what that man can do.
