So vexed was Otway at the embarrassment he could not wholly hide, and which delayed his answer, that he spoke the truth with excessive bluntness. "I have met Miss Derwent in society." "I don't often see them," said Olga, in a tone of weariness. "I suppose we belong to different worlds."

To-day you don't look very well." "I had no sleep last night," he replied abruptly, shunning her gaze. "That's bad. You weren't so foolish as to try to make up for lost time?" "No, no! I couldn't sleep." He reddened, hung his head. Miss Derwent grew almost maternal. This, she pointed out, was the natural result of nerves overstrained. He must really use common sense.

"The behaviour of Mr Harrel," answered Mr Delvile, "has by no means been such as to lead me to forget that his father was the son of a steward of Mr Grant, who lived in the neighbourhood of my friend and relation the Duke of Derwent: nor can I sufficiently congratulate myself that I have always declined acting with him.

Christal, who was almost domiciled at the Hall, and seemed by some invisible attraction most disinclined to leave it, was yet a daily visitor her high spirit softened to gentleness whenever she came near the invalid. As to Lyle Derwent, he positively haunted them. His affectations dropped off, he ceased his sentimentalities, and never quoted a single line of poetry.
