But it seems clear that Edyth—after leaving here yesterday—received some unexpected news.
Edyth is a nice girl, but I've noticed of late that she's not had a great deal to say.
While Edyth stood listening on the stairs someone opened this door!
Edyth did go there expecting to meet him—to protect him, perhaps.
Ashton-Kirk, during dinner, had told him those regarding the visit of Edyth Vale the day before.
Edyth Vale, pale of face, but with steady eye, returned his look.
During the remainder of the dinner I had time for little else but Edyth's questions.
"The Baroness and Edyth are cronies," Pendleton informed the other, as his wife turned to the hostess.
All these things passed through the mind of Edyth Vale, as she sat regarding the young man at the window.
In Miss Edyth Vale, we have a girl of most unusual character, of splendid education, apparently.
