  • Mrs. Gray approved very highly of Easton. Easton was a nice young man. He had plenty of money, a kind and affectionate disposition and was always very polite to Mrs. Gray. Altogether, Mrs. Gray felt certain that he would make an ideal husband for Betty. One day while the Grays were at their summer cottage Betty went in swimming with several other girls. She walked out until she could hardly touch bottom with her toes, lost her balance, fell and immediately commenced to scream. Easton, who was on the beach, changed color and half turned away. He said later that he was looking for a boat. However that may be, the fact remains that a muscular young chap dashed into the water while Easton was still hesitating, seized Betty rudely by the hair and carried her out of the water. Betty, still weak with fright and full of water, thought the young man was the most beautiful thing she had ever seen and told him as much in a choked, husky voice. The young man, whose name was Alec, realized at once that Betty was going to mean a great deal to him. He played tennis with her and took her rowing and did all the silly things people do at summer resorts, until one day he discovered that she was engaged to Easton. Then he refused to have anything more to do with her. Betty was highly vexed. She had never thought of her engagement to Easton as anything but a joke anyway and she thought it was highly unreasonable of Alec to be so nasty and conventional about it. To add to her displeasures, her mother urged Easton to renew his attacks. Betty went out rowing to escape him. She lost her oars and came within an ace of being run down by a large steamer. Alec, putting out hastily in a motorboat, seized her in the very nick of time. Since it seemed evident that Betty would come to an untimely end unless Alec were always on hand to save her, they realized that the best thing they could do was to get married.
