She saw his fingers uncrisp, then grip the shelf again. `I'm glad,' he said.
`Aunt Thirza gave me a ring to wear, but I've thrown it away.'
`My dearest child,' he began, but could not go on, for the quivering of his lips.
`I wanted to say once more, Daddy-, that I'm fearfully sorry about you. And I am ashamed of myself; I thought I wasn't, but I am--only, I think it was cruel, and I'm not penitent to God; and it's no good trying to make me.'

Jimmy Fort had turned away from Noel feeling particularly wretched. Ever since the day when Leila had told him of the girl's misfortune he had been aware that his liaison had no decent foundation, save a sort of pity. One day, in a queer access of compunction, he had made Leila an offer of marriage.

She was a woman of great experience.
To-day he had taken advantage of the luncheon interval to bring her some flowers, with a note to say that he could not come that evening. Letting himself in with his latchkey, he had carefully put those Japanese azaleas in the bowl `Famille Rose', taking water from her bedroom.
