PART I - CHAPTER VII
LETTIE PULLS DOWN THE SMALL GOLD GRAPES

She did not answer, but continued to watch. The bird wrestled heroically, but the wind pushed him aside, tilted him, caught under his broad wings and bore him down. He swept in level flight down the stream, outspread and still as if fixed in despair. I grieved for him. Sadly two of his fellows rose and were carried away after him, like souls hunting for a body to inhabit, and despairing. Only the first ghoul was left on the withered, silver-grey skeleton of the holly.
` He won't even say "Nevermore,"' I remarked.
`He has more sense,' replied Lettie. She looked a trifle lugubrious. Then she continued: `Better say "Nevermore," than " Evermore." '
'Why?' I asked.

She gave him one bright look of satisfaction. He saw it, and understood. `Helen has got some people over-I have been awfully rude to leave them now,' he said quietly.
`What a dreadful day!' said mother.

' Yes-I knew you'd come.'
They were left alone. He came up to her and put his arm around her, as she stood with her elbow on the mantelpiece.
'You do want me,' he pleaded softly.
`Yes,' she murmured.
He held her in his arms and kissed her repeatedly, again and again, till she was out of breath, and put up her hand, and gently pushed his face away.
`You are a cold little lover-you are a shy bird,' he said, laughing into her eyes. He saw her tears rise, swimming
