Russell Snyder - THE SCRANTON REPUBLICAN. WEDNESDAY. OCTOBER 30....
THE SCRANTON REPUBLICAN. WEDNESDAY. OCTOBER 30. 1935 by Robert Bruce O 1933 NEA Service, Inc. BEGIN HERE TODAY JEAN DUNN, secretary to DONALD MONTAGUE, MONTAGUE, lawyer, delays her answer when BOBBY WALLACE, toom automobile salesman, salesman, asks Jean to marry him. At the Golden Feather nifht club Jean meets SANDY HARKINS. whose business connection is vague. Sandy Introduce! Bobbr and Jean to MR. and MRS. LEWIS and Bobby arranies to sell some bonds for Lewif. He sells them to Donald Montague. LARRY GLENN, federal agent, is trying to locate WINGY LEWIS, bank robber. He finds some stolen bonds, traces tbem to Montague, then to Bobby. Federal m'n go to Lewis' apartment, but he and his wife have disappeared. Jean helps Sandy convince police he had nothing to do with a recent holdup. She goes to her home town for a vacation. Suddenly she realizes that Sandy was not with her at the t'me she told po'lce he was. Sandy comes to see her and she asks him about this. He offers an explanation that seems satisfactory. Then he asks her to marry him. NOW GO ON WITH THE STORY CHAPTER XXIV When Sandy asked her to marry him, Jean looked at him for a long time without replying. Then she said slowly, "Sandy I'm an awful coward." "How you mean?" "Well" she faltered, then went on "I I just couldnt become a mans wife when a thing like this this Oklahoma Oklahoma mixup was still hanging over his head. I couldn't, Sandy. Don't you see? A marriage would be too too uncertain, that way." She locked at him anxiously. H nodded agreement. , "Sure, I see," he said. "I don't blame you for feeling that way. But listen: suppose that gets all cleared up, like Mr. Montague says it will. Will you, then?" There was another long pause. Jean tried to stand off and get a look at her feeling for Sandy against this new background of Mapplehurst rather than the old one of Dover; she tried to remember that it was Bobby she was supposed to be in love with, and net Sandy; but none of it was much use. She was only conscious of his compelling masculine presence beside her, of his arm across her shoulders, of his face close to hers, with that old - time, half - mocking curve to the lips and that oldtime, carefree glint to the eyes. "Yes," she whispered at last. It was out before she knew that she was going to say it; and as she heard herself say it she felt a sudden pang in her breast, as if she had said something that she had meant not to say, and wished that she could recall it. But then Sandy's lips were on hers, and she was pressed against him with that lean muscular arm tight about her . . . and there was no room for any doubts or regrets. and unexpectedly laid one hand on her knee. He squeezed it so hard that she winced, and then withdrew and shoved his hands in his pockets, his long legs extended far in front of him "Only it's terribly hard for me to keep my hands off you. You've got me going, baby." This was spoken like the old Sandy slangy, breezy and outspoken. She laughed, and refused to admit that the remark had somewhat jarred. "Well," she said, "you've got to keep them off around here." "Whatever you say," he said idly, "is all right with me.' When he released her, at last, she suddenly remembered that they were sitting in a public place in broad day - . light; and she detached herself from his embrace as nervously as a frightened frightened high school girl. "Sandy !' she cried, looking about her anxiously. "The whole town is apt to see us!" "What of it?" asked Sandy, grinning broadly. There was a good foot of daylight daylight between them now, and he made no attempt to close the gap. Instead he got out a cigaret and lighted it. "What of it? You've lived in a small town and you ask that? Don't you know that everybody in the place would be jabbering about it by evening? I wouldn't have a shread of reputation left." "Well," said Sandy lazily, "Where's the harm in kissing your future hus - b?nd, anyhow?' Yes, but but they don't know about that part of it." "Why not tell 'em?' She paused. Why not, Indeed? What was there to stop her from leading Sandy down to the bank this very minute minute and introducing him to her father as her future husoand? What was keeping her from taking him straight home and presenting him to her mother? Why was she instinctively assuming assuming that no one was to know? There seemed to be no logical answer to any of those questions; yet she found herself saying: "Oh, Sandy let's just keep it secret for a while yet. It's so so new! you dorK mmd, do you?" He grinned and looked at the river through half - closed eyelids. "Not me," he said. "Keep it dark as long as you please so long as you don't forget about it yourself." "I won't," she said gaily. "Okay. The rest of it's all right, then Only - " he flipped his cigaret away The pause that followed seemed to Jean, depressingly, to be a trifle awkward. awkward. She did not know why except that she had promised to marry a man, and it did seem that sitting here two feet apart, talking in this fashion wasn't quite well, wasn't quite in tune with what she would expect such an occasion to be like. She absently fingered fingered a fold of her dress. "How long are you going to be here?" she asked. "Not so long," said Sandy.. "I've got a call to make about fifty miles west of here. But Lord! I couldnt go through here without stopping in to see you, could I?" "But you're going to be here long enough to meet my people, aren you?" "Oh, sure, if you say so." "Sandy!" 'JJVhat's the matter?" He sat up and looked at her in Juzzied concern. "Well" she looked at him with hurt eyes. Couldn't he see that he had pained her by that remark? Wouldn't it be the most natural thing for him to want to go to her father and mother at once? He seemed to sense what was going through her mind. "I di&s't ffieaii that quite like it sounded," he said, sliding closer to her. "Only you said you wanted to keep things secret for a while, so thought " "Oh.". She came to herself and told herself not to be childish. "Of course, Sandy. It's all right. Only I would like to have you meet them." "I'd be glad to." He stood up and extended a hand to help her to her feet. "Why not do it right now?" he asked. "Fine." She got up and they walked along the path back to where the main street of the little town ran past the park As they started down the 6treet Sandy said, suddenly, "Oh by the way I sup - they know you in the bank here, don't they? Would you tell them who am so I could get a check cashed?" "Know me?" She laughed. "I hope they do. My daddy's president of that bank." Sandy looked at her blankly, then grinned. "So he is," he said. "You did tell me that once, didn't you? Listen, if you'd rather not, dont bother. I can make it to this next point okay. I only wanted to cash a small one " "Of course I don't mind. Why should I? Come on." She took him to the bank. Through the half - opened door of her father's office she could see her father in busy consultation with someone, so she led Sandy directly to the cashier's wicket. "Mr. Hobart," she said gaily. "This is Mr. Harkins and he's all right. He wants some money.' Mr. Hobart smiled his dry, banker's smile, and extended a hand through the wicket. Sandy grinned in return and gave the hand a friendly shake. "If you vouch for him, Jean, I guess we'll have to let him have what he wants," said Mr. Hobart. "If I'd known that I'd have asked for more," drawled Sandy, laying a check on the counter. "All I want is $20.' Mr. Hobart inspected the check with that air of reserved suspicion peculiar to bankers, glanced briefly at Jean, and handed Sandy two $10 bills. Sandy took them and thanked him, and they stood there indulging in a moment or two of small talk. While they talked Sandy lounged against the counter, glancing idly about the lobby. "What've you been doing putting in a burglar alarm?" he asked casually, noticing the still - visible traces of the activity of the workmen whom Jean had seen that morning. "Tear gas." said Mr. Hobart proudly, "If I should Just kick this button here, you people'd go running out of here so fast" He chuckled. Sandy looked inter ested. "Tear gas, eh?" he said. "How's it work?' Thev explained it to him. and he notided thoughtfully. When they had finished he said, "Well, I guess you won't need to worry about this Jackson gang that's supposed to be on the prowl around this part of the country, will you? ' "Indeed we won't," said Mr. Hobart. "They'l get an eyeful if they come in here." And he chuckled again at his own wit. Jean saw her father's caller leave and she led Sandy to the front of the bank, took him into the office, and introduced him as a friend from Dover. They had half an hour's chat in the banker's office, and then the two young people excused themselves and walked to the Dunn home; but when they got there Jean remembered that this was the afternoon her mother attended a bridge tea at the country club, so there was no one at home, but Ellen, the cook. "Wen," said Sandy, "perhaps It's just as well. I've really got to be on my way. Should have started before this." "Oh Sandy!" she said, disappointed. "Do you have to go today?" "Yeah, I've got to be there tonight, and it's 50 miles. I may be back this way - Mrhen are you going back to Dover?" "Saturday morning. By train." "Oh. Well, I don't suppose I'll be back before Saturday. I'll see you in Dover then, in a week or two." She was conscious of a feeling of anti - climax as he bade her goodiby and strode off down the street to get his car. This was a momentous day; she had accepted a proposal and here was her lover, not an hour later, airily stalking off almost as if nothing had happened. She sat on the porch railing and watched him until he was out of sight. And then, for the first time that afternoon, she thought of some thing: What on earth am I going to say to Bobby?"
