PART I - CHAPTER IX
LETTIE COMES OF AGE

`So will you be--a yellow topaz to-morrow!'
' Ah ! to-morrow 's to-morrow ! '
After supper was over, Alice cried:
`Georgie, dear-have you finished?-don't die the death of a king-King John-I can't spare you, pet.'
`Are you so fond of me?'
`I am-Aw! I'd throw my best Sunday hat under a milk-cart for you, I would!'
`No; throw yourself into the milk-cart-some Sunday, when I 'm driving.'
'Yes -come and see us,' said Emily.
`How nice 1 To-morrow you won't want me, Georgie dear, so I'll come. Don't you wish pa would make Tono-Bungay? Wouldn't you marry me then?'
` I would,' said he.

George and Emily lingered a short time.
Now the room seemed empty and quiet, and all the laughter seemed to have gone. The conversation dribbled away ; there was an awkwardness.
`Well,' said George heavily, at last. 'To-day is nearly gone-it will soon be to-morrow. I feel a bit drunk! We had a good time to-night.'
`I am glad,' said Lettie.
They put on their clogs and leggings, and wrapped themselves up, and stood in the hall.
'We must go,' said George, 'before the clock strikeslike Cinderella-look at my glass slippers-' he pointed to his clogs. `Midnight, and rags, and fleeing. Very appropriate. I shall call myself Cinderella who wouldn't fit. I believe I'm a bit drunk-the world looks funny.'
We looked out at the haunting wanness of the hills beyond hethermere. `Good-bye, Lettie; good-bye.'
They were out in the snow, which peered pale and eerily from the depths of the black wood.
`Good-bye,' he called out of the darkness. Leslie slammed the door, and dFew Lettie away into the drawingroom. The sound of his low, vibrating satisfaction reached
