Saint's Progress

must go the other way? The sunlight ceased to stream in, the old lady's shadow faded off the wall, but the needles still sang their little tune. And the girl said: `Do you enjoy knitting, Mrs. Adam?'
The old lady looked at her above the spectacles.
`Enjoy, my dear? It passes the time.'
`But do you want the time to pass?'
There was no answer for a moment, and Noel thought: `How dreadful of me to have said that!'
`Eh?' said the old lady.
`I said: Isn't it very tiring?'
`Not when I don't think about it, my dear.'
`What do you think about?'
The old lady cackled gently.
'Oh-well!' she said.
And Noel thought: `It must be dreadful to grow old, and pass the time!'
She took up her father's letter, and bent it meditatively against her chin. He wanted her to pass the time-not to live, not to enjoy! To pass the time. What else had he been doing himself, all these years, ever since she could remember, ever since her mother died, but just passing the time? Passing the time because he did not believe in this life; not living at all, just preparing for the life he did believe in. Denying himself everything that was exciting and nice, so that when he died he might pass pure and saintly to his other world. He could not believe Captain Fort a good man, because he had not passed the time, and resisted Leila; and Leila was gone! And now it was a sin for him to love someone else; he must pass the time again. `Daddy doesn't believe in life,' she thought; `it's monsieur's picture. Daddy's a saint; but I don't want to be a saint, and pass the time. He doesn't mind making people unhappy, because the more they're repressed, the saintlier they'll be. But I can't bear to be unhappy, or to see others unhappy.
