鈥極h, my dear Thomas, you haven鈥檛 heard the terrible news then?鈥?she said. 鈥業 thought you would be sure to have seen it placarded somewhere. Alice went straight to her room, and I haven鈥檛 seen her since, though I repeatedly knocked at the door, which she has locked on the inside, and I鈥檓 sure it鈥檚 most unnatural of her not to let her own mother comfort her. It all happened in a moment: I have always said those great motor-cars shouldn鈥檛 be allowed to career about the streets, especially when they are all paved with cobbles as they are at Easton Haven, which are{331} so slippery when it鈥檚 wet. He slipped, and it went over him in a moment.鈥? � By the time Ted was pushing forty, though, his four decades of dramatic dancing had gotten himno further than cameos in another man鈥檚 masterpiece and a spare room in his cousin鈥檚 bungalow. 鈥淪o if they don鈥檛 come down with something else by this morning, they might be okay till after therace.鈥? Mr Silverdale, indeed, in spite of the special interest of Dr Inglis鈥檚 discourse, was engrossing a good deal of Alice Keeling鈥檚 attention, and her imagination was very busy. He had spent an assiduous week in calling on his parishioners, but she had not been at home when he paid his visit to her mother, who had formed no ideas about him, and Alice was now looking forward with a good deal of excitement to to-night, when he was going to take supper with them, after evening service, as her mother had expressed it in her note, or after evensong, as he had expressed it in his answer. 鈥楧ear Lord Inverbroom,鈥擱e lease of premises of County Club. If you will allow me I should like to cancel the notice of termination of said lease which I sent you yesterday, if this would be any convenience to the Club. I should like also to express to you personally my regret for my action.鈥? 东京热一本道色综合网 She got up, the sense of being wronged for the moment drowning her shame. It was his fault; he had made her think that he wanted her. She had long been termed his Helper, and now he had made himself clear by terming himself the mere man. At least she had thought he made himself clear. But the silence made him clearer. 鈥淲hat freaked me out about you鈥?鈥?Caballo began, but suddenly stopped, bug-eyed with hunger,as Mam谩 plopped big bowls in front of us and futzed over them with chopped cilantro andjalape.os and squirts of lime. The snarling look he鈥檇 given me back at the hotel wasn鈥檛 because Iwas standing between him and freedom; it was because I was standing between him and food. He could not complete that outrageous falsity with Alice鈥檚 eyes fixed on him. She waited, she longed to withdraw her hand from under his: it itched to pluck itself away and yet some counter-compelling influence from herself kept it there, delighting in his touch. The resentment at the encouragement she had received, which had provoked this ghastly fiasco, faded from her, her shame at having precipitated it faded also, and her mind, even in this cataclysm, but sunned itself in his presence. But that lasted only for a moment, her shame toppled it off its pre-eminence again, and again her sense of the wanton flirting of which she had been the victim banished her shame. Never in all the years of her placid existence had her mother felt the poignancy of any one of those emotions which made tumult together in Alice鈥檚 heart. And as if that was not enough, another added its discordant shrillness to the Babel within her. She pulled her hand away. Cruel revulsion of feeling, bitter irony of Fate, when the great grim waves鈥攚hich had seemed like living monsters hurrying down upon them with malignant fury to tear and to devour鈥攚hen the awful sea began to roar with a lesser voice, and the thunder of the battering-rams had a duller sound, and the bows of the yacht no longer plunged straight down into the leaden-coloured pit; no longer climbed those inky ridges with such blind impetus, as of a cockle-shell in a whirlpool. Bitter sense of loss and dismay when the grey, cold dawn lighted a quieter sea, and she heard the captain telling Lostwithiel that they had seen the worst of the storm, and that there was no fear now. He was going to put on more canvas: and hadn't the lady better go below, where it was warm. She needn't feel anyway nervous now. They would soon be in the roadstead of Arcachon. �
