Saint's Progress

houses which had been wrecked. Trucks clanged and shunted, great lorries rumbled smoothly by. Sea- and Air-planes were moving like great birds far up in the, bright haze, and khaki was everywhere. But it was the sea Noel wanted. She made her way westward to a little beach; and, sitting down on a stone, opened her arms to catch the sun on her face and chest. The tide was nearly up, with the wavelets of a blue bright sea. The great fact, the greatest fact in the world, except the sun; vast and free, making everything human seem small and transitory! It did her good, like a tranquillizing friend. The sea might be cruel and terrible, awful things it could do, and awful things were being done on it; but its wide level line, its never-ending song, its sane savour, were the best medicine she could possibly have taken. She rubbed the shelly sand between her fingers in absurd ecstasy; took off her shoes and stockings, paddled, and sat drying her legs in the sun.
When she left the little beach, she felt as if someone had said to her: `Your troubles are very little. There's the sun, the sea, the air; enjoy them. They can't take those from you.'
At the hospital she had to wait half an hour in a little bare room before George came.
`Nollie! Splendid. I've got an hour. Let's get out of this cemetery. We'll have time for a good stretch on the tops. Jolly of you to have come to me. Tell us all about it.'
When she had finished, he squeezed her arm. `I knew it wouldn't do. Your Dad forgot that he's a public figure, and must expect to be damned according. But though you've cut and run, he'll resign all the same, Nollie.'
`Oh, no!' cried Noel.
George shook his head.
`Yes, he'll resign, you'll see, he's got no worldly sense; not a grain.'
`Then I shall have spoiled his life, just as if-oh, no!'
'Let's sit down here. I must be back at eleven.'
