ing but cheques–she undertook to manage that on her side:
she really thought she could count on about fifty, and shesupposed he could rake up a few more? Well, all that wouldsimply represent pocket-money! For they would have plenty ofhouses to live in: he’d see. People were always glad to lendtheir house to a newly-married couple. It was such fun to popdown and see them: it made one feel romantic and jolly. Allthey need do was to accept the houses in turn: go on honey-moo cheap nike air max ning for a year! What was he afraid of? Di dn’t he thinkthey’d be happy enough to want to keep it up? And why not atleast try–get engaged, and then see what would happen? Even ifshe was all wrong, and her plan failed, wouldn’t it have beenrather nice, just for a month or two, to fancy they were goingto be happy? “I’ve often fancied it all by myself,” sheconcluded; “but fancying it with you would nike air max 95 somehow be so awfullydifferent ….”That was how it began: and this lakeside dream was what it hadled up to. Fantastically improbable as they had seemed, all herprevisions had come true. If there were certain links in thechain that Lansing had never been able to put his hand on,certain arrangements and contrivances that still needed furtherelucidation, why, he was lazily resolved to clear them up withher some day; and meanwhile it was worth all the past might havecost, an nike air max 90 d every penalty the future might exact of him, just tobe sitting here in the silence and sweetness, her sleeping headon his knee, clasped in his joy as the hushed world was claspedin moonlight.
He stooped down and kissed her. “Wake up,” he whispered, “it’sbed-time.”
Chapter 3
THEIR month of Como was within a few cheap nike air max 90 hours of ending. Till thelast moment they had hoped for a reprieve; but the accommodatingStreffy had been unable to put the villa at their disposal for alonger time, since he had had the luck to let it for a thumpingprice to some beastly bouncers who insisted on taking possessionat the date agreed on.
Lansing, leaving Susy’s side at dawn, had gone down to the lakefor a last plunge; and swimming homeward through the crystallight he looked up at the garden brimming with flowers, the longlow house with the cy cheap nike air max trainers press wood above it, and the window behindwhich his wife still slept. The month had been exquisite, andtheir happiness as rare, as fantastically complete, as the scenebefore him. He sank his chin into the sunlit ripples and sighedfor sheer co cheap nike air max trainers ntent ….
It was a bore to be leaving the scene of such completewell-being, but the next stage in their progress promised to behardly less delightful. Susy was a magician: everything shepredicted came true. Houses were being showered on them; on allsides he seemed to see beneficent spirits winging toward them,laden with everything from a piano nobile in Venice to a camp inthe Adirondacks. For the present, they had decided on theformer. Other considerations apart, they dared not risk theexpense of a journey across the Atlantic; so they were headinginstead for the Nelson Vanderlyns’ nike air max 90 sale palace on the Giudecca. Theywere agreed that, for reasons of expediency, it might be wi nike air max sale se toreturn to New York for the coming winter. It would keep them inview, and probably lead to fresh opportunities; indeed, Susyalready had in mind the convenient flat that she was sure amigratory cousin (if tactfully handled, and assured that theywould not overwork her cook) could certainly be induced to lendthem. Meanwhile the need of making plans was still remote; andif there was one art in which young Lansing’s twenty-eight yearsof existence had perfected him it was that of living completelyand unconcernedly in t cheap nike air max he present ….
If of late he had tried to look into the future more insistentlythan was his habit, it was only because of Susy. He had meant,when they married, to be as philosophic for her as for himself;and he knew she nike air max classic would have resented above everything hisregarding their partnership as a reason for anxious thought.
But since they had been together she had given him glimpses ofher past that made him angrily long to shelter and defend herfuture. It was intolerable that a spirit as fine as hers shouldbe ever so little dulled or diminished by the kind ofcompromises out of which their wretched lives were made. Forhimself, he didn’t care a hang: he had composed for his ownguidance a rough-and-ready code, a short set of “mays” and”mustn’ts” which immensely simplified his course. There werethings a fellow put up with for the sake of certain definite andotherwise unattainable advantages; there were other things hewouldn’t traffic with at any price. But for a woman, he beganto see, it might be different. The temptations might beg cheap nike air max reater, the cost considerably higher, the dividing line betweenthe “mays” and “mustn’ts” more fluctuating and less sharplydrawn. Susy, thrown on the world at seventeen, with only a weakwastrel of a father to define that treacherous line for her, andwith every circumstance soliciting her to overstep it, seemed tohave been preserved chiefly by an innate scorn of most of theobjects of human folly. “Such trash as he w nike air max 1 ent to pieces for,”was her curt comment on her parent’s premature demise: asthough she accepted in advance the necessity of ruining one’sself for something, but was resolved to discriminate firmlybetween what was worth it and what wasn’t.
This philosophy had at first enchanted Lansing; but now it beganto rouse vague fears. The fine armour of her fastidiousness hadpreserved her from the kind of risks she had hitherto beenexposed to; but what if others, more subtle, found a joint init? Was there, among her delicate discriminations, anyequivalent to his own rules? Might not her taste for the bestand rarest be the very instrument of her undoing; and ifsomething that wasn’t “trash” came her way, would she hesitate asecond to go to pieces for it?
He was determined to stick to the compact that they should donothing to interfer nike air max e with what each referred to as the other’s”chance”; but what if, when hers came, he couldn’t agree withher in recognizing it? He wanted for her, oh, so passionately,the best; but his conception of that best had so insensibly, sosubtly been transformed in the light of their first monthtogether!
