nt. “Oh, she’s here,naturally–we’re in Paris, kids and all. In a pension, where wecan polish up the lingo. But I hardly ever lay eyes on her,because she’s as deep in m nike free run 2 review usic as I am in paint; it was as big achance for her as for me, you see, and she’s making the most ofit, fiddling and listening to the fiddlers. Well, it’s aconsiderable change from New Hampshire.” He looked at herdreamily, as if making an intense effort to detach himself fromhis dream, and situate her in the fading past. “Remember thebungalow? And Nick–ah, how’s Nick?” he broug nike huarache ht outtriumphantly.
“Oh, yes–darling Nick?” Mrs. Melrose chimed in; and Susy, herhead erect, her cheeks aflame, declared with resonance: “Mostaw nike free running shoes fully well–splendidly!””He’s not here, though?” from Fulmer.
“No. He’s off travelling–cruising.”Mrs. Melrose’s attention was faintly roused. “With anybodyinteresting?””No; you wouldn’t know them. People we met ….” She did nothave to continue, for her hostess’s gaze had again strayed.
“And you’ve come for your clothes, I suppose, darling? Don’tlisten to people who say that skirts are to be wider. I’vediscovered a new woman–a Genius–and she absolutely swathesyou…. Her name’s my secret; but we’ll go to her together.”Susy rose from her engulphing armchair. “Do you mind if I go upto my room? I’m rather tire d–coming straight through.””Of course, dear. I think there are some people coming todinner … Mrs. Match will tell you. She has such a memory ….
Fulmer, where on earth are those cartoons of the music-room cheap nike free run 2 ?”Their voices pursued Susy upstairs, as, in Mrs. Match’sperpendicular wake, she mounted to the white-panelled room withits gay linen hangings and the low bed heaped with morecushions.
“If we’d come here,” she thought, “everything might have beendifferent.” And she shuddered at the sumptuous memories of thePalazzo Vanderlyn, and the great painted bedroom where she hadmet her doom.
Mrs. Match, hoping she would find everything, and mentioningthat dinner was not till nine, shut her soft nike free 3.0 review ly in among herterrors.
“Find everything?” Susy echoed the phrase. Oh, yes, she wouldalways find everything: every time the door shut on her now,and the sound of voices ceased, her memories would be therewaiting for her, every one of them, waiting quietly, patiently,obstinately, like poor people in a doctor’s office, the peoplewho are nike huarache free always last to be attended to, but whom nothing willdiscourage or drive away, people to whom time is nothing,fatigue nothing, hunger nothing, other engagements nothing: whojust wait …. Thank heaven, after all, that she had not foun nike free trainers uk dthe house empty, if, whenever she returned to her room, she wasto meet her memories there!
It was just a week since Nick had left her. During that week,crammed with people, questions, packing, explaining, evading,she had believed that in solitude lay her salvation. Now sheunderstood that there was nothing she was so unprepared for, sounfitted for. When, in all her life, had she ever been alone?
And how was she to bear it now, with all these ravening memoriesbesetting her!
Dinner not till nine? What on earth was she to do till nineo’clock? She knelt before her boxes, and feverishly beg nike free an tounpack.
Gradually, imperceptibly, the subtle influences of her old lifewere stealing into her. As she pulled out her tossed andcrumpled dresses she remembered Violet’s emphatic warning:
“Don’t believe the people who tell you that skirts are going tobe wider.” Were hers, perhaps, too wide as it was? She lookedat her limp raiment, piling itself up on bed and sofa, andunderstood that, according to Violet’s standards, and that ofall her set, those dresses, which Nick had thought so originaland exquisite, were already commonplace and dowd nike free 5.0 v4 y, fit only tobe passed on to poor relations or given to one’s maid. And Susywould have to go on wearing them till they fell to bits-orelse …. Well, or else begin the old life again in some newform ….
She laughed aloud at the turn of her thoughts. Dresses? Howlittle they had mattered a few short weeks ago! And now,perhaps, they would again be one of the foremost considerationsin her life. How could it be otherwise, if she were to returnagain to her old dependence on Ellie Vanderlyn, Ursula Gillow,Violet Melrose? And beyond that, only the Bockheimers and theirkind awaited her ….
A knock on the door–what a r nike huarache free run elief! It was Mrs. Match again,with a telegram. To whom had Susy given her new address? Witha throbbing heart she tore open the envelope and read:
“Shall be in Paris Friday for twenty-four hours where can I seeyou write Nouveau Luxe.”Ah, yes–she remembered now: she had written to Strefford! Andthis was his answer: he was coming. She dropped into a chair,and tried to think. What on earth had she said in her le nike free 3.0 sale tter?
It had been mainly, of course, one of condolence; but now sheremembered having added, in a precipitate postscript: “I can’tgive your message to Nick, for he’s gone off with the Hickses-Idon’t know where, or for how long. It’s all right, of course:
it was in our bargain.”She had not meant to put in that last phrase; but as she sealedher letter to Strefford her eye had fallen on Nick’s missive,which lay beside it. Nothing in her husband’s brief lines hadembittered her as much as the allusion to Strefford. It seemedto imply that Nick’s own plans were made, that his own futurewas secure, and that he could therefore freely and handsomelytake thought for hers, and give her a pointer in the rightdirection. Sudden rage had possessed her at the thought: whereshe had at first read jealousy she now saw only a coldprovidenc nike free review e, and in a blur of tears she had scrawled herpostscript to Strefford. She remembered that she had not evenasked him to keep her secret. Well–after all, what would itmatter if people should already know that Nick had left her?
Their parting could not long remain a mystery, and the fact thatit was known might help her to keep up a presence ofindifference.
“It was in the bargain–in the bargain,” rang through her brainas she re-read Strefford’s telegram. She understood that he hadsnatched the time for this hasty trip solely in the hope ofseeing her, and her eyes filled. The more bitterly she thoughtof Nick the more this proof of Strefford’s friendship moved her.
The clock, to her relief, reminded her that it was time to dressfor dinner. She would go down presently, chat with Violet andFulmer, and with Violet’s other nike free run plus guests, who would probably beodd and amusing, and too much out of her world to embarrass herby awkward questions. She would sit at a
