She could hear every word Nancy was saying to Jim Thompson as they sat there on the steps. "Don't go in yet. Father's up, at all hours." "But I must sec him, Nancy*" "I'll wail here." Emily could hear Jim come in the house. The screen door slammed, his feet sounded on the stairs, she heard her father's irritable roar of greeting, her mother's voice. She heard Jim go downstairs again, two at a time. The dooi slammed once more, And Nancy said: "You took long enough. No don't go over to the apartment Sit here." Jim said after a moment, "I should go and catch some sleep There may be calls. I expect one in fact." "You'll be up all night," said Nancy. "Why in the world anyon> wants to be a doctor!" "Don't you know," he asked "having lived with your father al these years?" "It's deadly," she said savagely "and killing. A horrible business Mother's never had any fun she's entitled to it." She added "I wish you'd been along tonight It was nice, on the beach. But did get so bored.

"What about Frank?" he in* # * smoke, strong and sweet, drifted luzily upward, the scent ft was in Emily's nostrils. We hnd n fight," admitted tfancy, and laughed. Emily could not catch Jim's low 'eply. But she heard Nancy's next ;entencej clear and gay and enter- ained'. "What in the world gave you that idea? As if I could be nlerested in Frank Edgar!" A moment later theie was a stir on the porch and Nancy said: "I'm wide awake. Everyone else las gone to bed, I suppose. You'll no sooner get there than you'll lave to go out again. I've an idea. [f you won't take me driving, I'll come over and pay you a oall, and make you some coffee and we'll sil up and drink it and gossip." Possibly he demurred. Emily didn't know. But a little later she heard their footsteps on the wooden treads and then going muffled, across the grass, anc louder, down the gravel to the garage. She rose wearily, undressec and went to bed. She thought lying in the darkness, Serves you right , . listening. But she was conscious of a cole anger. Nancy must be out of hei mind. Why shouldn't she go to Jim'; apartment if «he wanted to, bre\\ him a cup of coffee, talk wit) him. . . . parade her little tricks He should be in bed and asleep but Nancy wouldn't think of thai She wouldn't of course questioi the decorum of the impulse. Now adays the word decorum was a seldom used as tho word indis creet. Jim was her father's as sistant. Her father, her moi'.ier you had no business er sister, were together under n.e robf, next door to the garage partment. No one would think nything of it— She had quarreled With Prank. Vhy? And she was amusing her-, elf witli Jim because she was nnoyed, hurt pcuhaps; Not hurt, thought Emily. To her horror the quick, en tears forced themselves gainst her closed lids, crawled lowly down her cheeks. i I'm not In love with him, she nought. And knew that she was. * * * had it begun? Had it started back in the old hospital- days when they'd been just good friends, talking, arguing, aughing, working together? Or vhen he'd walked into the house n ^Atlantic Street a few weeks igo? Or the first time she had ee'h him look at Nancy with his ilue eyes warming and his lop- ided grin? Or tonight, coming lome from the hospital? It didn't hatter when. It didn't matter whether it had happened years, a TJpnth,. a week, an hour ago, or ust now. It had happened and that was that. She thought miserably, There's nothing I can do about it—go iway perhaps, find a job in Bos,on—anything. Someone tapped at her door and her mother came in. "Asleep?" "No. Wait a moment." Emily fumbled under a pillow, scrubbed icr handkerchief across her fc.«e and eyes, steadied her voice, reached out and turned on the bedside light. "What's the matter," she asked, "is father—?" "No, he's all right. Fast asleep." Millicent's hair was pinned into curls, caught under a net cap. Her face was scrubbed. Despite the fine lines, it had a little girl look. She had a pot »t cold cream in her hand and sitting down beside Emily's bed she absentmindedly began to stroke the cream across her forehead and under her eyes. She said: "I looked out of the window just now. Nancy's over in the apartment with Jim." (To Be Continued) ir Unsinkable Liberty Ship (U. : S, Navy Photo From NEA) Hit by a Jap torpedo, this U.. S.
