PART I - CHAPTER VI
THE EDUCATION OF GEORGE

'What?' he asked.
`Something decisive.'
` I don't know what can happen-unless the squire turns us out.'
`No?' I said.
He did not speak.
`You should make things happen,' said I.
`Don't make me feel a worse fool, Cyril,' he replied despairingly.
Gyp whined and jumped, tugging her chain to follow trs. The grey blurs among the blackness of the bushes were resting sheep. A chill, dim mist crept along the ground.
`But, for all that, Cyril,' he said, `to have her laugh at you across the table; to hear her sing as she moved about, before you are washed at night, when the fire's warm, and you 're tired; to have her sit by you on the hearth seat, close and soft. . . .'
`In Spain,' I said. `In Spain.'
He took no notice, but turned suddenly, laughing.
`Do you know, when I was stocking up, lifting the sheaves, it felt like having your arm round a girl. It was quite a sudden sensation.'
`You'd better take care,' said I, `you'll mesh yourself in the silk of dreams,kand then'
He laughed, not having heard my words.
'The time seems to go like lightning-thinking,' he confessed-'I seem to sweep the mornings up in a handful.' `Oh, Lord!' said I. `Why don't you scheme forgetting
what you want, instead of dreaming fulfilments?'
`Well,' he replied, `if it was a fine dream, wouldn't you want to go on dreaming?' and with that he finished, and I went home.
I sat at my window looking out, trying to get things straight. Mist rose, and wreathed round Nethermere, like ghosts meeting and embracing sadly. I thought of the time when my friend should not follow the harrow on our own snug valley-side, and when Lettie's room next mine should be closed to hide its emptiness, not its joy. Ii4y heart clung passionately to the hollow which held us all; how could I bear that it should be desolate! I wondered what Lettie would do.
