A guilty conscience

Jill was looking at him with grave, speculative eyes. She had that direct, honest gaze which many nice  girls have, and as a rule Bill liked it. But at the moment he could have done with something that did not pierce quite so like a red-hot gimlet to his inmost soul. A sense of guilt makes a man allergic to direct, honest gazes.
