And yet in the back of his troubled mind fluttered an irresistible satisfaction an animal pride in the thought that this hare-brained terror was his own.

And when she dared to consider truthfully her estimate of Archie Braelands, she judged his love, passionate as it was, did not ring true through all its depths.
