XII

THERE was a letter from Hilda, saying she would I for Constance in the beginning of June, and they would both go to France for two or three weeks with their father, old Sir Malcolm. The old painter had travelled a good deal with his daughters when they were quite young, and even now he would sometimes go off alone with them for some jaunt, leaving his second wife, the girls' stepmother, at home. But Constance had not left Wragby since the end of the war--since Clifford came home.

The trip to France was no new proposition. Hilda had been insisting on it for months. And now it was to come off. Constance had consented to go. She thought she might be pregnant. She wanted to be alone a while. Time went by so quickly. Already it was the last days of May.

"If you want me one little bit to stay at home, Clifford," said Constance, "I won't go. I don't care about going. Really I don't."

And it was true. She didn't want to go away from the other man, not out of contact. She couldn't bear to think her contact with him might be broken. And she didn't want to leave Clifford if Clifford would be unhappy. Yet in spite of these things, she knew she would go. It was her destiny.

Clifford thought it was a put-up job of Hilda's, to get Constance away from him and probably entangled with another man.

"Oh, I want you to go!" he said. "But I want you to come back--you know that."
