BY ONE o'clock she was at Uthwaite, where the car would meet her. And on the station platform--Oh God!--was Clifford on crutches? He had learned to go on crutches since she had left! His face, ruddy and healthy- looking, and with that inhuman birdlike keenness, was watching the train as he himself leaned against one of the iron pillars that supported the station roof, his crutches under his armpits. Those eyes, those keen, light-blue, hard swift eyes, of an English gentleman! She almost felt them strike her as they lighted on her face. And a curious flame of triumph filled them, inhuman. He was triumphing in his new victory over fate. Poor Clifford!

The man-servant hurried forward to help her. Clifford remained with his back against the pillar, watching tensely. She hurried forward to him.

"Why Clifford!" she said in her breathless voice.

"How are you, dear?" he said, as he leaned a hand on her shoulder and bent forward to kiss her.

It was almost with surprise that she realized that he was an actuality. He had become a sort of shadow while she was away.

"But can you really go?" she cried, looking at the crutches.

"In a fashion," he said.

"But how wonderful! How--?" she could get no further. She was panting, and her cheeks were bright red.

"Mrs. Bolton inspired me. Oh, she's an amazing woman when she likes."

"And--and have you been out before?"
