PART II - CHAPTER I
STRANGE BLOSSOMS AND STRANGE NEW BUDDING

'Don't you care for me?' he asked softly.
'You!'-she sat up and looked at him, and laughed strangely. 'You do not seem real to me,' she replied, in a strange voice.
For some time they sat thus, both bowed and silent. birds 'skirred' off from the bushes, and Emily looked up with a great start as a quiet, sardonic voice said above us :
`A dove-cot, my eyes if it ain't! It struck me I'eered a cooin', an' 'ere 's th' birds. Come on, sweethearts, it 's th' wrong place for billin' an' cooin', in th' middle o' these 'ere snowdrops. Let 's 'ave yer names, come on.'
`Clear off, you fooll' answered Leslie from below, jumping up in anger.
We all four turned and looked at the keeper. He stood in the rim of light, darkly; fine, powerful form, menacing us. He did not move, but like some malicious Pan looked down on us and said:
'Very pretty - pretty! Two - and two makes four. 'Tis true, two and two makes four. Come on, come on out o' this 'ere bridal bed, an' let 's 'ave a look at yer.'
`Can't you use your eyes, you fool?' replied Leslie, standing up and helping Lettie with her furs. `At any rate you can see there are ladies here.'
`Very sorry, sir? You can't tell a lady from a woman at this distance at dusk. Who may you be, sir?'
'Clear out ! Come along, Lettie, you can't stay here now.'
They climbed into the light.
`Oh, very sorry, Mr. Tempest-when yer look down on a man he never looks the same. I thought it was some young fools come here dallvin'
'Damn you-shut up! exclaimed Leslie-'I beg your pardon, Lettie. Will you have my arm?'
They looked very elegant, the pair of them. Lettie was wearing a long coat which fitted close ; she had a small hat whose feathers flushed straight back with her hair.
The keeper looked at them. Then, smiling, he went down the dell with great strides, and returned, saying:
` Well, the lady might as well take her gloves.'
She took them from him, shrinking to Leslie. she started, and said :
'Let me fetch my flowers.'
