he latent signsof it in others, and also to ascribe it impulsively to those ofthe opposite sex who happened to interest her. She had anatural contempt for who gloried in what they need onlyhave endured. She herself meant eventually to marry, becauseone couldn’t forever hang on to rich people; but she was goingto wait till she found some one who combined the maximum ofwealth with at least a minimum of companionableness.
She had at once perceived young Lan cheap air max 1 sing’s case to be exactly theopposite: he was as poor as he could be, and as companionableas it was possible to imagine. She therefore decided to see asmuch of him as her hurried and entangled life permitted; andthis, thanks to a series of adroit adjustments, turned out to bea good deal. They met frequently all the rest of that winter;so frequently that Mrs. Fred Gillow one day abruptly and sharplygave Susy to understand that she was “making herselfridiculous.””Ah–” said Susy with a long breath, looking he air max 1 r friend andpatroness straight in the painted eyes.
“Yes,” cried Ursula Gillow in a sob, “before you interfered Nickliked me awfully … and, of course, I don’t want to reproachyou … but when I think ….”Susy made no answer. How could she, when she thought? Thedress she had on had been given her by Ursula; Ursula’s nike air max 1 ebay motorhad carried her to the feast from which they were bothreturning. She counted on spending the following August withthe Gillows at Newport … and the only alternative was to go toCalifornia with the Bockheimers, whom she had hitherto refusedeven to dine with.
“Of course, what you fancy is perfect nonsense, Ursula; and asto my interfering–” Susy hesitated, and t cheap air max 1 hen murmured: “But ifit will make you any happier I’ll arrange to see him lessoften ….” She sounded the lowest depths of subservience inreturning Ursula’s tearful kiss ….
Susy Branch had a masculine respect for her word; and the nextday she put on her most becoming hat and sought out young Mr.
Lansing in his lodgings. She was determined to keep her promiseto Ursula; but she meant to look her best when she did it.
She knew at what time the young man nike air max 1 sale was likely to be found, forhe was doing a dreary job on a popular encyclopaedia (V t o X),and had told her what hours were dedicated to the hateful task.
“Oh, if only it were a novel!” she thought as she mounted hisdingy stairs; but immediately reflected that, if it were thekind that she could bear to read, it probably wouldn’t bring himin much more than his encyclopaedia. Miss Branch had herstandards in literature ….
The apartment to which Mr. Lansing admitted her was a good dealcleaner, but hardly less dingy, than his staircase. Susy,knowing him to be addicted to Oriental archaeology, had picturedhim in a bare room adorned by a single Chinese bronze offlawless shape, or by some precious fragment of Asiatic pottery.
But such redeeming features were conspicuously absent, and noattempt had been made to disguise the nike air max 1 decent indigence of thebed-sitting-room.
Lansing welcomed his visitor with every sign of pleasure, andwith apparent indifference as to what she thought of hisfurniture. He seemed to be conscious only of his luck in seeingher on a day when they had not expected to meet. This made Susyall the sorrier to execute her promise, and the gladder that nike air max 1 red shehad put on her prettiest hat; and for a moment or two she lookedat him in silence from under its conniving brim.
Warm as their mutual liking was, Lansing had never said a wordof love to her; but this was no deterrent to his visitor, whosehabit it was to speak her meaning clearly when there were noreasons, worldly or pecuniary, for its concealment. After amoment, therefore, she told him why she had come; it was anuisance, of course, but he would understand. Ursula Gillow wasje nike air max 1 grey alous, and they would have to give up nike air max 1 black seeing each other.
The young man’s burst of laughter was music to her; for, afterall, she had been rather afraid that being devoted to Ursulamight be as much in his day’s work as doing the encyclopaedia.
“But I give you my word it’s a raving-mad mistake! And I don’tbelieve she ever meant me, to begin with–” he protested; butSusy, her common-sense returning with her reassurance, promptlycut short his denial.
“You can trust Ursula to make herself clear on such occasions.
And it doesn’t make any difference what you think. All thatmatters is what she believes.””Oh, come! I’ve got a word to say about that too, haven’t I?”Susy looked slowly and consideringly about the room. There wasnothing in it, absolutely nothing, to show that he had everpossessed a spare dollar–or accepted a p nike air max 1 resent.
“Not as far as I’m concerned,” she finally pronounced.
“How do you mean? If I’m as free as air–?””I’m not.”He grew thoughtful. “Oh, then, of course–. It only seems alittle odd,” he added drily, “that in that case, the protestshould ha cheap nike air max 1 ve come from Mrs. Gillow.””Instead of coming from my millionaire bridegroom, Oh, I haven’tany; in that respect I’m as free as you.””Well, then–? Haven’t we only got to stay free?”Susy drew her brows together anxiously. It was going to berather more difficult than she had supposed.
“I said I was as free in that respect. I’m not going tomarry–and I don’t suppose you are?””God, no!” he ejaculated fervently.
“Bu nike air max 1 leopard t that doesn’t always imply complete freedom ….”He stood just above her, leaning his elbow against the hideousblack marble arch that framed his fireless grate. As sh nike air max 1 premium eglanced up she saw his face harden, and the colour flew to hers.
“Was that what you came to tell me?” he asked.
“Oh, you don’t understand–and I don’t see why you don’t, sincewe’ve knocked about
