No.Fu qing book seized the fine slave arm and said, “aru, quick, the pain in the belly hurts, quick to find a way.”Somewhat reassured, Frederick hastened to admit the colonel, who, throwing himself on a chair, exclaimed:And with a parting “au revoir, baron,” he jumped into a fiacre, and in a loud, cheery tone of voice, bade the coachman drive home to the Hotel Kensington. A couple of minutes later, Frederick, who was greatly put out at thus having his alias and his residence made known to Rose, hailed a passing cab, and a quarter of an hour afterward arrived at her apartments in the Rue de Constantinople. They consisted of four rooms, the tawdry ornaments, greasy furniture, vulgar attempts at display and false elegance of which denoted that their tenant had sunk to the level of a third-rate cocotte.When, at the end of this week of indescribable torture, they were released, five of their number, including Frederick, were in such a state as to necessitate their being sent to the hospital. Frederick, who possessed a wonderfully strong constitution and powerful physique, soon recovered. [Pg 103] Two of his companions, however, had their arms paralyzed for the remainder of their lives from the effects of this appalling treatment.Some time had elapsed since Frederick had made the acquaintance of the Van der Becks, when one day a letter arrived from Holland informing Mr. Van der Beck of the death of his eldest brother, and demanding his immediate presence in Amsterdam. As it was the worst season of the year for traveling, and he was extremely solicitous of his wife’s health, he decided that it would be imprudent for her to accompany him. Madam submitted to this with much more equanimity than she usually displayed in her relations with her lord and master, and three days later, escorted by Frederick, she accompanied her husband to the steamer. As Mr. Van der Beck’s absence was to last six months, if not more, he intrusted his wife with all the interests of his house and business and even with the signature of the firm. She was a remarkably clever and shrewd woman, and had on more than one occasion given him proof of her ability in business matters. In taking leave he especially recommended her to the care of Frederick, adding that he knew how much he could depend on the young man’s friendship and devotion.Frederick, much amused at this display of truly oriental courtesy, tossed the woman a few yen notes and entered the the house, laughing, with the intention of telling Madame Van der Beck about it. The smile, however, faded from his lips when he came into her presence, for, having learned from the men who had brought home the groom’s body, the nature of the place where Frederick was in the habit of passing his days, her feelings of jealousy and anger were aroused to a boiling pitch. Thoroughly spoiled, accustomed to have every whim humored, and with no notion of how to control her temper, she gave full vent to a perfect torrent [Pg 131] of reproaches and abuse against the man for whom she had sacrificed husband, rank, and position. She taunted him bitterly with his ingratitude, and it was only with the greatest difficulty that he at length succeeded in restoring her to anything like calm. buy cheap nike shoes Frederick’s first thought was to effect his escape without delay. But while he hesitated for a moment as to the means of doing so without attracting Captain Clery’s attention, the drawing-room doors were thrown open, and Lady Kingsbury, followed by her daughters and two other ladies in full evening dress, entered the room. Baffled in his purpose, Frederick now determined to put the best face on the matter that he could. Of one thing he was certain, namely, that there had been no gleam of recognition in Clery’s eye [Pg 159] when the latter had cursorily glanced at him on entering. The drawing-rooms were but dimly lighted by several shaded lamps, and the great change which had taken place in Frederick’s appearance during the years which had elapsed since he left India encouraged him to hope that he might possibly escape detection, even on closer inspection. He therefore advanced toward the lady of the house, and, bowing low, kissed her outstretched hand with the graceful and never-failing courtesy that was habitual to him in his relations with the fair sex.CHAPTER VThe ridiculous part of Fred’s dash for freedom was that she actually picked up a client or two! Of course, her commissions did not quite pay for the advertising that brought the clients—”But what difference does that make?” she demanded.”He’s on the track of three Ohio girls who want five rooms and a bath, for light housekeeping, furnished. He’s going to haul me round in his go-cart to look at some flats. Trouble is, I can’t charge my full commission—they’re poor. Students at the College of Elocution. Why do girls always want to elocute?””Come in, Flora,” Frederica called out; “and hook me up.” She smiled so gaily at the silent creature, not even scolding when the slim, cold finger-tips touched her warm shoulder, that the woman smiled a little, too. “I thought this was your afternoon out?” Fred said, kindly.”She will,” Miss Eliza said, “if he will beat her.””She’s refused him,” Mrs. Payton thought; and sighed.Every day, as she worked at her desk, or took a trolley-car to the suburbs to inspect some apartment, or sat in absorbed silence opposite her mother at the dinner-table, she was saying, why? She was certain that he was fond of her. “Did he go because he thought I was so deep in business that I wouldn’t bother with him? Or because[Pg 122] he wanted to show me he could put in really serious licks of work? Or because he was afraid I’d turn him down? Of course, I am awfully matter-of-fact,” she admitted; “but all the same, he’s blind if he thinks that!”Spring had sauntered very slowly up the Ohio Valley that year. During a cold and slushy April, Frederica paid her advertising bills, and was assured that the Misses Graham would want her to engage an apartment for them in the autumn. Also, she found a flat for a lady with strikingly golden hair, who later departed without paying her rent. This created a disgruntled landlord and instructed the real-estate agent in the range of adjectives disgruntled landlords can use. In May she was almost busy in finding houses on the lake and in the mountains for summer residents; but her traveling expenses to and from the various localities were so large that she had to apply to her man of business for an advance from her allowance.”How’s he getting along with his shells?”She might have reflected further upon the foolishness of the past generation, if just then Mrs. Payton had not come stealthily along the hall. She stood in the doorway, raising a cautioning finger.”I couldn’t stand it any longer,” he told her, joyously. “How’s business? How’s Laura?””No, the quickest way will be to take her to a doctor, not bring a doctor to her!”In the parlor, watched by Andy Payton’s sightless eyes, the court sat upon Freddy—for, of course, the whole distressing affair was her fault—she had dragged poor, crazy Flora out to that shocking camp! “I said last spring it was perfec’ nonsense,” Mr. Childs vociferated—”a girl, renting a bungalow! Why did you allow it, Ellen?””If he doesn’t, it’s just idiotic tradition. It belongs to the days of slavery!”Frederica turned a bewildered face upon him. She stammered a little:”Considering your intelligence, you are astonishingly obtuse, at times. I couldn’t care for any other kind of girl. Or for any girl, except you!”She nodded: “I know what you mean. But I never could be a fool, Arthur.””Well, he said that if a man was a suffragist it was because he was either in the cradle or the grave. He said the man of affairs was bored to extinction by the whole hullabaloo business. He considered me in the cradle; so I suppose he’d say that Weston—”
