THE FASCINATIONS OF THE FORBIDDEN APPLE

She took the scarf from her head and let it wave out on the wind; the colour was warm in her face with climbing, and her curls were freed by the wind, sparkling and rippling.
'Well-you're not a man,' he said, looking at her, and speaking with timid bitterness.
`No,' she laughed; `if I were, I would shape things-oh, wouldn't I have my own way!'
`And don't you now?'
`Oh-I don't want it particularly-when I've got it. When I've had my way, I do want somebody to take it back from me.'
She put her head back, and looked at him sideways, laughing through the glitter of her hair.
They came to the Kennels. She sat down on the edge of the great stone water-trough, and put her hands in the water, moving them gently like submerged flowers through the clear pool.
` I love to see myself in the water,' she said, ' I don't mean on the water, Narcissus-but that 's how I should like to be out west, to have a little lake of my own, and swim with my limbs quite free in the water.'
'Do you swim well?' he asked.
'Fairly.'
' I would race you-in your little lake.'
She laughed, took her hands out of the water, and watched the clear drops trickle off. Then she lifted her head suddenly, at some thought or other. She looked across the valley, and saw the red roofs of the Mill.

'What's that?' he said.
'Nothing.'
'That's a private trough,' exclaimed a thin voice, high like a pewit's cry. We started in surprise to see a tall, black-bearded man looking at us and away from us nervously, fidgeting uneasily some ten yards off.
`Is it?' said Lettie, looking at her wet hands, which she proceeded to dry on a fragment of a handkerchief.
