Saint's Progress

he said. `And I shall never trade on her position. If she can't feel anything for me now or in the future, I shan't trouble her, you may be sure of that. But if by some wonderful chance she should, I know I can make her happy, sir.'
`She is a child.'
`No, she's not a child,' said Fort stubbornly.
Pierson touched the lapel of his new tunic. `Captain Fort, I am going far away from her, and leaving her without protection. I trust to your chivalry not to ask her, till I come back.'
Fort threw back his head. `No, no, I won't accept that position. With or without your presence the facts will be the same. Either she can love me, or she can't. If she can, she'll be happier with me. If she can't, there's an end of it.' Pierson came slowly up to him. `In my view,' he said, `you are as bound to Leila as if you were married to her.' `You can't expect me to take the priest's view, sir.' Pierson's lips trembled.
`You call it a priest's view; I think it is only the view of a man of honour.'
Fort reddened. `That's for my conscience,' he said stubbornly. `I can't tell you, and I'm not going to, how things began. I was a fool. But I did my best, and I know that Leila doesn't think I'm bound. If she had, she would never have gone. When there's no feeling-there never was real feeling on my side-and when there's this terribly real feeling for Noel, which I never sought, which I tried to keep down, which I ran away from...'
`Did you?'
`Yes. To go on with the other was foul. I should have thought you might have seen that, sir; but I did go on with it. It was Leila who made an end.'
`Leila behaved nobly, I think.'
`She was splendid; but that doesn't make me a brute.'
