“”Of course,” he murmured, drowsy with content, and manifestingbut a languid interest in the subject of Mrs. Vanderlyn’swardrobe.
“Only fancy–she very nearl nike air max 1 y decided to stop over for Nelson’sarrival next week, so that he might bring her two or three moretrunkfuls from Paris. But mercifully I’ve managed to persuadeher that it would be foolish to wait.”Susy felt a hardly perceptible shifting of her husband’slo Nike air max 1 unging body, and was aware, through all her watchfultentacles, of a widening of his half-closed lids.
“You ‘managed’–?” She fancied he paused on the wordironically. “But why?””Why–what?””Why on earth should you try to prevent Ellie’s waiting forNelson, if for once in her life she wants to?”Susy, conscious of reddening suddenly, drew back as though theleap of her tell-tale heart might have penetrated the blueflannel shoulder against which she leaned.
“Really, dearest–!” she murmured; but with a sudden doggednesshe renewed his “Why?””Because she’s in such a fever to get to St. Moritz–and in sucha funk lest the hotel shouldn’t keep her rooms cheap nike air max 1 ,” Susy somewhatbreathlessly produced.
“Ah–I see.” Nick paused again. “You’re a devoted friend,aren’t you!””What an odd question! There’s hardly anyone I’ve reason to bemor nike air max 1 grey e devoted to than Ellie,” his wife answered; and she felt hiscontrite clasp on her hand.
“Darling! No; nor I–. Or more grateful to for leaving usalone in this heaven.”Dimness had fallen on the waters, and her lifted lips met hisbending ones.
Trailing late into dinner that evening, Ellie announced that,after all, she had decided it was safest to wait for Nelson.
“I should simply worry myself ill if I weren’t sure of gettingmy things,” she said, in the tone of tender solicitude withwhich she always discussed her own difficulties. “After all,people who deny themselves everything do get warped and bitter,don’t they?” she argued plaintively, her lovely eyes wanderingfrom one to the other of her assembled friends.
Strefford remarked gravely that it was the complaint which hadfatally undermined his o cheap nike air max 1 wn health; and i n the laugh thatfollowed the party drifted into the great vaulted dining-room.
“Oh, I don’t mind your laughing at me, Streffy darling,” hishostess retorted, pressing his arm against her own; and Susy,receiving the shock of their rapidly exchanged glance, said toherself, with a sharp twinge of apprehension: “Of courseStreffy knows everything; he showed no surprise at finding Ellieaway when he arrived. And if he knows, what’s to preventNelson’s finding out?” For Strefford, in a mood of mischief,was no more to be trusted than a malicious child.
Susy instantly resolved to risk speaking to him, if need be evenbetraying to him the secret of the letters. Only by revealingthe depth of her own danger could she hope to secure hissilence.
On the balcony, late in the evening, while the others werelistening indoors to the low nike air max 1 black modulations of a young composer whohad embroidered his fancies on Browning’s “Toccata,” Susy foundher chance. Strefford, unsummoned, had followed her out, andstood silently smoking at her side.
“You see, Streff–oh, why should you and I make mysteries toeach other?” she suddenly began.
“Why, nike air max 1 red indeed: but do we?”Susy glanced back at the group around the piano. “About Ellie,I mean–and Nelson.””Lord! Ellie and Nelson? You call that a mystery? I should assoon apply the term to one of the million candle-poweradvertisements that adorn your native thoroughfares.””Well, yes. But–” She stopped again. Had she not tacitlypromised Ellie not to speak?
“My Susan, what’s wrong?” Strefford asked.
“I don’t know….””Well, I do, then: you’re afraid that, if Ellie and Nelson meethere, she’ll blurt out something–injudicious.”” cheap air max 1 Oh, she won’t!” Susy cried with conviction.
“Well, then–who will! I trust that superhuma nike air max 1 leopard n child not to.
And you and I and Nick–“”Oh,” she gasped, interrupting him, “that’s just it. Nickdoesn’t know … doesn’t even suspect. And if he did….”Strefford flung away his cigar and turned to scrutinize her. “Idon’t see–hanged if I do. What business is it of any of us,after all?”That, of course, was the old view that cloaked connivance in anair of decency. But to Susy it no longer carried conviction air max 1 ,and she hesitated.
“If Nick should find out that I know….””Good Lord–doesn’t he know that you know? After all, I supposeit’s not the first time–“She remained silent.
“The first time you’ve received confidences–from marriedfriends. Does Nick suppose you’ve lived even to your tender agewithout … Hang it, what’s c nike air max 1 sale ome over you, child?”What had, indeed, that she could make clear to him? And yetmore than ever she felt the need of having him securely on herside. Once his word was pledged, he was safe: otherwise therewas no limit to his capacity for wilful harmfulness.
“Look here, Streff, you and I know that Ellie hasn’t been awayfor a cure; and that if poor Clarissa was sworn to secrecy itwas not because it ‘worries father’ to think that mother needsto take care of her health.” She paused, hating herself for thei nike air max 1 ebay ronic note she had tried to sound.
“Well–?” he questioned, from the depths of the chair into whichhe had sunk.
“Well nike air max 1 premium , Nick doesn’t … doesn’t dream of it. If he knew that weowed our summer here to … to my knowing….”Strefford sat silent: she felt his astonished stare through thedarkness. “Jove!” he said at last, with a low whistle Susy bentover the balustrade, her heart thumping against the stone rail.
