THE STORY GIRL



CHAPTER I. THE HOME OF OUR FATHERS

"I do like a road, because you can be always wondering what is at
the end of it."

The Story Girl said that once upon a time. Felix and I, on the
May morning when we left Toronto for Prince Edward Island, had
not then heard her say it, and, indeed, were but barely aware of
the existence of such a person as the Story Girl. We did not
know her at all under that name. We knew only that a cousin,
Sara Stanley, whose mother, our Aunt Felicity, was dead, was
living down on the Island with Uncle Roger and Aunt Olivia King,
on a farm adjoining the old King homestead in Carlisle. We
supposed we should get acquainted with her when we reached there,
and we had an idea, from Aunt Olivia's letters to father, that
she would be quite a jolly creature. Further than that we did
not think about her. We were more interested in Felicity and
Cecily and Dan, who lived on the homestead and would therefore be
our roofmates for a season.

But the spirit of the Story Girl's yet unuttered remark was
thrilling in our hearts that morning, as the train pulled out of
Toronto. We were faring forth on a long road; and, though we had
some idea what would be at the end of it, there was enough
glamour of the unknown about it to lend a wonderful charm to our
speculations concerning it.

We were delighted at the thought of seeing father's old home, and
living among the haunts of his boyhood. He had talked so much to
us about it, and described its scenes so often and so minutely,
that he had inspired us with some of his own deep-seated
affection for it--an affection that had never waned in all his
years of exile. We had a vague feeling that we, somehow,
belonged there, in that cradle of our family, though we had never
seen it. We had always looked forward eagerly to the promised
day when father would take us "down home," to the old house with
the spruces behind it and the famous "King orchard" before
it--when we might ramble in "Uncle Stephen's Walk," drink from
the deep well with the Chinese roof over it, stand on "the Pulpit
Stone," and eat apples from our "birthday trees."
