The cry broke out from the bitterness of his heart, but a cold little hand was placed restrainingly on his. "When I go ... if I go," she murmured, "I shall do so with my husband.... You see, my friend, do you not, that there is naught else to say but 'good-bye'?" "And you will be happy, Sue?" he asked. "I hope so!" she sighed wistfully.
