CHAPTER XX - Marriage by Quetzalcoatl

`And the star that is between three people, and is their meeting-ground, shall not be betrayed.
`And the star that is between all men and all women, and between all the children of men, shall not be betrayed.

`Where there is no star and no abiding place, nothing is, so nothing can be lost.'

She no longer feared the nights, when she was shut alone in her darkness. But she feared the days a little. She shrank so mortally from contact.
She opened her bedroom window one morning, and looked
