Saint's Progress

`You're talking wildly,' he said, but his lips were trembling. `You mustn't say things like that; they're blasphemous and wicked.'
Noel bit her lips, sitting very stiff and still against a high blue cushion. Then she burst out again: `You've slaved for those people years and years, and you've had no pleasure and you've had no love; and they wouldn't care that if you broke your heart. They don't care for anything, so long as it all seems proper. Daddy, if you let them hurt you, I won't forgive you!'
`And what if jou hurt me now, Nollie?'
Noel pressed his hand against her warm cheek.
`Oh, no! Oh, no! I don't-I won't. Not again. I've done that already.'
`Very well, my dear! then come home with me, and we'll see what's best to be done. It can't be settled by running away.'
Noel dropped his hand. `No. Twice I've done what you wanted, and it's been a mistake. If I hadn't gone to Church on Sunday to please you, perhaps it would never have come to this. You don't see things, Daddy. I could tell, though I was sitting right in front. I knew what their faces were like, and what they were thinking.'
`One must do right, Nollie, and not mind.'
`Yes; but what is right? It's not right for me to hurt you, and I'm not going to.'
Pierson understood all at once that it was useless to try and move her.
`What are you going to do, then?'
`I suppose I shall go to Kestrel to-morrow. Auntie will have me, I know; I shall talk to Leila.'
`Whatever you do, promise to let me know.' Noel nodded.
`Daddy, you look awfully, awfully tired. I'm going to give you some medicine.' She went to a little three-cornered
