9781331066255: The Heritage of Peril (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Heritage of Peril

In the ladies' room on the Midland platform of the great New Street Station, Birmingham, one March afternoon, Dessie Merrion sat waiting for her train, and watching with strongly-roused interest a well-dressed woman who was her only companion in the room.

The girl was about one and twenty; quick and capable in looks, and her small, regular features and her general manner suggested considerable independence, selfresource, and natural capacity. Knitting needles were clicking swiftly in her deft fingers, and thus without waste of time she could watch her companion out of her shrewd grey eyes.

The two had been almost alone in the room for nearly half an hour, and during the time the girl had made one or two little approaches to conversation; but these had met with such a quiet though effectual repulse that she had accepted the defeat with a smile at the elder woman's tact. This had rather increased than lessened her interest in the woman, however, and this feeling had been still further heightened by the great contrast which she thought she could perceive between the woman and a man, who was apparently her travelling companion.
