Saint's Progress

He had thought Pierson's face gentle; it was not gentle now. `Did you know I was here, then, Captain Fort?'
`I saw Noel in the garden. I've said nothing to her, of course. But she told me you were starting to-morrow for Egypt, so I shall have no other chance.'
`I am sorry you have come. It is not for me to judge, but I don't think you will make Noel happy.'
`May I ask you why, sir?'
`Captain Fort, the world's judgement of these things is not mine; but since you ask me, I will tell you frankly. My cousin Leila has a claim on you. It is her you should ask to marry you.'
`I did ask her; she refused.'
`I know. She would not refuse you again if you went out to her.'
`I am not free to go out to her; besides, she would refuse. She knows I don't love her, and never have.'
`Never have?'
`No.'
'Then why. . .'
`Because I'm a man, I suppose, and a fool.'
`If it was simply "because you are a man" as you call it, it is clear that no principle or faith governs you. And yet you ask me to give you Noel; my poor Noel, who wants the love and protection not of a"man" but of a good man. No, Captain Fort, no!'
Fort bit his lips. `I'm clearly not a good man in your sense of the word; but I love her terribly, and I would protect her. I don't in the least know whether she'll have me. I don't expect her to, naturally. But I warn you that I mean to ask her, and to wait for her. I'm so much in love that I can do nothing else.'
`The man who is truly in love does what is best for the one he loves.' Fort bent his head; he felt as if he were at school again, confronting his head master. `That's true,'
