PART II - CHAPTER IX
PASTORALS AND PEONIES

`It is a beautiful ending,' said Lettie, in a low tone, looking at the floor.
'It 's all a tale,' said Leslie, soothing the girls.
George waited till Lettie looked at him. She lifted her eyes to him at last. Then each turned aside, trembling.
Marie asked for some of the peonies.
`Give me just a few-and I can tell the others the storyit is so sad-I feel so sorry for him, it was so cruel for him
1 And Lettie says it ends beautifully !'
George cut the flowers with his great clasp-knife, and Marie took them, carefully, treating their romance with great tenderness. Then all went out of the garden and he turned to the cowshed.
'Good-bye for the present,' said Lettie, afraid to stay
near him.
'Good-bye,' he laughed.
`Thank you so much for the flowers-and the story-it was splendid,' said Marie, `but so sad!'
Then they went, and we did not see them again.
Later, when all had gone to bed at the Mill, George and I sat together on opposite sides of the fire, smoking, saying little. He was casting up the total of discrepancies, and now and again he ejaculated one of his thoughts.
`And all day,' he said, `Blench has been ploughing his wheat in, because it was that bitten off by the rabbits it was no manner of use, so he 's ploughed it in: an' they say their idylls, eating peaches in our close.'
Then there was silence, while the clock throbbed heavily, and outside a wild bird called, and was still; softly the ashes rustled lower in the grate.
'She said it ended well-but what 's the good of death -what's the good of that?' He turned his face to the ashes in the grate, and sat brooding.
Outside, among the trees, some wild animal set up a thin, wailing cry.
Damn that rowl' said I, stirring, looking also into the grey fire.
It 's some stoat or weasel, or something. It 's been going on like that for nearly a week. I've shot in the trees ever so many times. There were two - one 's gone,'

PART II - CHAPTER IX
PASTORALS AND PEONIES

Continuously, through the heavy, chilling silence, came the miserable crying from the darkness among the trees.
`You know,' he said,' `she hated me this afternoon, and I hated her It was midnight, full of sick thoughts.
'It is no good,' said I. 'Go to bed-it will be morning in a few hours.'
