PART III - CHAPTER III
THE FIRST PAGES OF SEVERAL ROMANCES

she added. He turned to her with a swift tenderness. She smiled to him, and sat down at the coffee-maker. We took our places at table.
` I think I shall come back to-night,' he said quietly, almost appealingly.
She watched the flow of the coffee before she answered. Then the brass urn swung back, and she lifted her face to hand him the cup.
`You will not do aything so foolish, Leslie,' she said calmly.
He took his cup, thanking her, and bent his face over the fragrant steam.
`I can easily catch the 7.z5 from St. Pancras,' he replied, without looking up.
`Have I sweetened to your liking, Cyi-il?' she asked, and then, as she stirred her coffee she added: `It is ridiculous, Leslie! You catch the 7.15 and very probably miss the connection at Nottingham. You can't have the motor car there, because of the roads. Besides, it is absurd to come toiling home in the cold, slushy night when you may just as well stay in London and be comfortable.'
`At any rate I should get the zo.3o down to Lawton Hill,' he urged.
`But there is no need,' she replied, `there is not the faintest need for you to come home to-night. It is really absurd of you. Think of all the discomfort! Indeed, I should not want to come trailing dismally home at midnight, I should not, indeed. You would be simply wretched. Stay and have a jolly evening with Cyril.'
He kept his head bent over his plate and did not reply. His persistence irritated her slightly.
'That is what you can do!' she said. 'Go to the pantomime. Or wait-go to Maeterlinck's Blue Bird. I am sure that is on somewhere. I wonder if Rebecca has destroyed yesterday's paper. Do you mind touching the bell, Cyril?' Rebecca came, and the paper was discovered. Lettie carefully read the notices, and planned for us with zest a delightful programme for the evening. Leslie listened to it all in silence.
When the time had come for our departure Lettie came with us into the hall to see that we were well wrapped up.
