THE MAN THEY COULDN'T ARREST

So far as he knew, Dain was one of the party who had just got out of that cab. And he hadn't been paying any particular attention to it anyway.
Dain walked casually away into the Strand and entered the first restaurant he came to. There were a good many vacant seats, but few vacant tables. He found one near a radiator, and pulled off his hat.
A waitress took his order, and he hid himself behind an outstretched morning newspaper. He had been reading some time when he had a dim impression of the waitress standing near him saying : "Here, madam, this seat is out of the draught." He was also dimly aware of someone sitting down opposite him with a rustle of soft skirts.
He put his paper down politely and folded it halfway across. Then he glanced up, and the blood drained out of his face. He was looking full into the accusing eyes of Mercia Lyall.
For a moment he felt as though his foothold had been knocked from under him, his grip on himself was gone. For Mercia faced him with frozen unforgiveness on her face. Dain read the ferocious loyalty that was plainly about her. True daughter of her father she was declaring her colours and telling Dain that he was no standard-bearer of hers.
Dain was aware, all in that nerve-tingling second, of the tremendous gulf that had opened out between them. It yawned before him, unbridgeable, impassable. The expression in Mercia's eyes was flat, stony.
