CHAPTER V - GERRY DALTON

was so pleased-she was always at her best when handsome young men were about. He would simply have loathed to hear such a description of himself, for his mind was far more concerned with the serious things of life. All the same, it suited his purpose that people should think him just the good-natured cheery soul he always appeared to be. He had only been down from the 'Varsity a few years and he was singularly fortunate to have such an important job to do. But he loved his work, and its very importance only had a more sobering influence on his life. The Special Foreign Branch of the C.I.D. was giving him a wonderful insight into the inner life of foreign courts, which was one day going to prove invaluable ; but it gave him other opportunities as well. He had shown such adaptability and initiative that General Mason, the Chief, had given him some rather ticklish jobs to do dealing with matters nearer home-and he had come out of them all with honours. There were not many young men of twenty-five who held the confidence of his superiors to the extent that the Honourable Gerald did. And now he was seeking to justify that trust once more-though to most of people he just seemed to be spending a very long holiday at home ; for with occasional flying visits about the country and to London, he spent most of his time either at Eldon Square or Tankerton Castle.
The Colonel and his wife were great friends of his ; and, whenever he could, he seized the chance of meeting them. He was particularly intrigued by Madelaine Kenton-though not, perhaps, from the same cause as she herself believed. Lately, they had not seen much of him-hence the fuss ; though Gerry himself had been up in the north for some considerable time-living most of the while quietly-even secretly-at the family house in Eldon Square, Newcastle.
