I was horribly jealous, but now I defy every man of them.”
Phebe smiled with the air of proud humility20 that was so becoming and answered briefly21: “There was no danger kings could not change me, whether you ever came or not. But Mac should not have told you.”
“You shall be revenged on him, then, for, as he told secrets about you, I’ll tell you one about him. Phebe, he loves Rose!” And Archie looked as if he expected to make a great sensation with his news.
“I know it.” And Phebe laughed at his sudden change of countenance22 as he added inquiringly, “She told you, then?”
“Not a word. I guessed it from her letters, for lately she says nothing about Mac, and before there was a good deal, so I suspected what the silence meant and asked no questions.”
“Wise girl! Then you think she does care for the dear old fellow?”
“Of course she does. Didn’t he tell you so?”
“No, he only said when he went away, ‘Take care of my Rose, and I’ll take care of your Phebe,’ and not another thing could I get out of him, for I did ask questions. He stood by me like a hero, and kept Aunt Jane from driving me stark23 mad with her ‘advice.’ I don’t forget that, and burned to lend him a hand somewhere, but he begged me to let him manage his wooing in his own way. And from what I see, I should say he knew how to do it,” added Archie, finding it very delightful to gossip about love affairs with his sweetheart.
