"Have I been alrep all the after,

Mie began to brush her ruffled luir,
and Netu at down on the aide of
the bed and watched her kilenily.'
After a moment, "Pat's come to

he was. not slow to ce tlie swift
tolor that rushed to fctuabeth's face,
and her eyes fell.
"Oh, has he?" laid Elirabeth,
rather breathlessly. ,
"Yes; to fix things up with you.
He's been to see jour aunt."
Klizabrth swung around aghast. ,
'Really! Oh! Are you sure?",
"Yes; but he'll tell you' about it
himself. Hurry up." .
She went off into the sitting room
which the two girls were to share,
and -Elizabeth began twisting up her
hair with shaking fingers.
If Roys ton had seen Mrs. Mason
she' knew that it meant the final
burning of her boats, and she hardly
knew if she was glad or sorry.
She looked very young and rather
scared w hen prosently she crossed
the landing to their sitting room. As
she opened the door she heard Roy
stbn laughing and the clatter of tea-,
Netta was . at the head of the
table, pouring out, and Royston
stood beside her.
He drew forward a chair for Elira
beth. "I hope you are feeling rested," he
said. "Netta tells me you have been
"Yes; my head ached. I was very
tired." Elizabeth wished that the
color would not keep rising to her
face. She sat down at the table feel
ing painfully nervous.
"You've been to see my aunt,
then?" she said after a moment.
"Yes. I told her that you were
here with Netta and that you were
perfectly safe and comfortable, for
the time being at any rate. I also
told her that she was at liberty to
come and see you at any time if she
cared to do so." " f
"She wilj nof come," said Eliza

"No." he agreed. " "I don't think
she will; but at any rate w;e have

course. Nol I'm not going to tell
you what she said," he added, laugh--ing.
Elizabeth's eyes asked a ques
tion. "Old cat 1" said Netta. Then she
laughed and apologized. "I'm sorry,
Elizabeth; I forgot she was a rela
tion of yours."
"It doesn't matter," Elizabeth said;
Vhen tea was ended Netta went
off to interview Mrs. Silcuin about
supper. "We don't, as a rule, have
any," she said, candidly. "But in
honor of you, my dear, I - think
something might be managed."
She looked at Royston. "Will you
"Not to supper, thanks. I Jtlst
want to make a few arrangements
with Miss Conyers." .
Netta departed and Elizabeth raised
her eyes to Royston's. "What are
you going to do with me?" she asked,
"Teach you to dance, first of all,
he answered, briskly. "You will have
your first lesson the day after to
morrow. Tomorrow youwill go and
do some shopping with Netta."
Elizabeth flushed. "You mean
these clothes will not do?" she asked.
"I think others would be more
suitable," he answered. . ...
Elizabeth nodded. Yes, yes, I
know. And then?" She stood look
ing up at him appealingly.
"And' then," he went on, "if you
turn out as well as I believe you will
I shall take, you into the school

"Oh, I shall love it!" Elizabeth
He made wry face. .
"Don't be too sure it s hard work
and monotonous work. Vait till
vou've tried teaching a lot of duds to
dance and then . .". He broke
off laughing. ( "No; that was too bad
of me, wasn't it?" . ,
"And will you give me my hrst
lesson?" Elizabeth asked, eagerly
"No; I think I shall leave that to
X"tOh'"h'There was a little silence.
Elizabeth stood twisting her fingers.
-Of course, I suppose you don t take
quite beginners like me?" she added,

answered; "but she has notthe gift

that I might-might even dance bet
ter than she does?" . ' . -
"I will answer that question later
on." he said, smiling.
"And then if I get on well can 1
dance with you?"
- Elizabeth looked at him with
ahining eyes; she felt as if the future
