If you would, if you only would, why, at last, you couldn't help liking her!" Again he smiled at her, shaking his head. "I love you, not Marylyn." "You're a good man," she said. "You wouldn't like to see me do anything that wasn't right square. You wouldn't think much of me if I did. I'll do wrong if if I take you from her."

While chatting the young people had been walking up through the hotel grounds until now they stood just behind the stone wall that separated the ground from the road.
