Delbury had half expected to see someone of the vamp type, a girl with pretty though hard features, with eyes that were mere traps for the unsuspecting-eyes that could lie and smile a lie with wicked facility. The clever daughter of a clever fatherthat's what he expected to find.
And instead there came to him a radiant girl in the first flush of womanly charm, a girl whose features were soft and expressively tender, whose mouth was sweet with its own sincerity, and whose eyes were steel true. She was terribly anxious, desperately worried-her repressed fears showed in every line of her-but she was regal mistress of herself, for all that. Delbury felt his theories slipping through his fingers.
" You have bad news for me, Mr. Delburyhadn't mother better be present, too?" Mercia asked the question in a steady voice, but her hands were gripped together till the knuckle tips shone white.
" No, madam, with your permission, I'd rather see you alone first."
Mercia inclined her head ever so slightly.
" Then, if you will, I would like to hear the worst you have to tell me without any preliminaries or attempts to make it easier. Bad news is always difficult to receive-and I much prefer to know what has happened, without unnecessary heartaches."
