Saint's Progress

of your being or not being at home can affect my decision as to what my duty is?'
`Yes; it's my being there that matters. Those people don't care, so long as it isn't an open scandal.'
`Nollie !'
`But it is so, Daddy. Of course it's so, and you know it. If I'm away they'll just pity you for having a bad daughter. And quite right too. I am a bad daughter.'
Pierson smiled. `Just like when you were a tiny.'
`I wish I were a tiny again, or ten years older. It's this half age ... But I'm not coming back with you, Daddy; so it's no good.'
Pierson sat down beside her.
`I've been thinking this over all day,' he said quietly. `Perhaps in my pride I made a mistake when I first knew of your trouble. Perhaps I ought to have accepted the consequences of my failure then, and have given up, and taken you away at once. After all, if a man is not fit to have the care of souls, he should have the grace to know it.'
`But you are fit,' cried Noel passionately; `Daddy, you are fit!'
'I'm afraid not. There is something wanting in me, I don't know exactly what; but something very wanting.'
`There isn't. It's only that you're too good-that's why!'
Pierson shook his head. `Don't, Nollie!'
`I will,' cried Noel. `You're too gentle, and you're too good. You're charitable, and you're simple, and you believe in another world; that's what's the matter with you, Daddy. Do you think they do, those people who want to chase us out? They don't even begin to believe, whatever they say or think. I hate them, and sometimes I hate the Church; either it's hard and narrow, or else it's worldly.' She stopped at the expression on her father's face, the most strange look of pain, and horror, as if an unspoken treachery of his own had been dragged forth for his inspection.
