Babyish ringlets, from ;i recent and hurried bath, flaltcnecl on her iH'ck. Ho smiled into her dancing eyes. "Gee, you look sweet," he said approvingly. The compliment was no spontaneous, so dill'erenl from his guarded, "Beautiful, Marian," that Marian looked into the mirror with sudden distaste. Certainly there was nothing Kvfeel about, her finished toilet. Well, who wanted to bo sweet? It was in the same category with "wholesome," .something to be avoided. Dolly laughed, "Thank you, Dan," and sped to the kitchen, slipping an apron over her dress. Putting fresh water on the potatoes, she placed the pan over a lighted burner. Then carrots. Then the cauliflower head in a steamer. With a capable hand, s/ie worked down a mass of Huffy dough and made little biscuits. "What shall T do, Dolly?" Marian asked, trailing her finery lo the kitchen door. "Just keep out of my way. You're ir.ueh too elegant to come into the kitchen. I have everything under control." Dolly was In her element and Marian felt a curious slab of envy. It crossed her mind that cooking was creative and as exciting as any other kind of work. She went back to the improvised dining room and Dan took her place in the kitchen. Marian could hear him getting ice cubes out of th* refrigerator, at the same time chatting easily with Dolly. The ready little perpendicular line pinched itself between Marian's brows. This was her 12th wedding anniversary, hers and Dan's, it should be a romantic: day, it should awaken memories. If Dan were impressed in the least he had not shown itjby word or sign. Had he ceased to love lier? It was a new thought. Not once, through all the years, had she doubted Dan's love. It came over her that she had always counted on that lo've, it had been a shelter and a refuge. 'PHK door bell buzzed and she •*• touched the release button. Queuing the ddbr, she smiled. Queer, she had the sensation of spreading the stnile across her iace. It did not seem to come from tasjrie. Carma appeared at the top o£ the stairs. - Marian's first impression was one of shock at Carma's supremely glossy hardness. She was a golden apparition. Marian thought: She looks as if she'd been dressed in the mint. Once her hair had been soft brown, now it glitU-.-ed like raw gold. Her gown was black, .shot witri gold, elaborate gold bracelets jingled at her wrists, a great lopax. hung around her neck on a gold chain. Over her dress she wore a short jacket, of red fox. She sparkled, but there was no warmth in the sparkle. "Hello, Carma. Am 1 in Chicago or Gay Paree? You look the world on fire, he would never be able to set a fira by which they could warm their hands, but he was her man. A woman needed a man. The people of this earth were meant to go in pairs. A lone woman—glancing at Carma, IVlaj-urn's eyes darkened witlupity. * * * AMY ELLEN and Bill Sands arrived and the apartment echoed with gay greetings. Amy Ellen was small and not too stylish, her hat was all wrong and her .shoes a bit on the sensible side. But her face—Marian coijd "That's right," Carma laughed j nut lake her eyes from Air.y too gaily. "Name it and you can have it." Her smile had been painted on like Marian's u\vn. Marian called, "Dolly—Dan— Carma is hero. Come see her. She's simply too divine." They trooped in from the kitch- i st en. Dan shook Carma's. hand, | Dolly kissed her, hei genuine. Marian took Carma to the bedroom, brave with tallVta and boudoir pillows. Caiuna turned oil' the smile. ''J .s;w Diem today—Pete and his wife." Her lips were scornful. "Did you, Carma? Where?" "In Huyler's. 1 dropped in for a cup of tea and there they were, sitting at our old table." She turned furious, glittering eyes on Ellen's face. There was a serer-.ity about it, a young happy sereri-ty, love shone in her eyes when she looked at Bill, lie wore an air oi success and prosperity. lie v;;.s noisy and genial and sure of himself. Marian remembered the last admiration |.time she had seen these two. V/'sat i miracle had wrought the chanj,".'? 'Money? Achievement? Success did something for a man and :'or his wife. Pride formed a tlnn basis for love. Without pride— Resolutely, she banished !he Marian, common 'She's common, little tramp. Cheap clothes, hair curling clown on her shoulders, a rotten paint job on her face." "Did Pete see you?" "I don't think so. He didn't look in my direction." After a moment, when naked pain gave expression to her face, she said, "I'm going to take him away from her. I won't be kicked around like this. I can't stand it." Marian put an arm around her. "Let's forget Pete for tonight, shall we? Let's have a good time. You know the old bromide about just as good fish being left in the sea —Dun and I asked Randy Menus especially for you." "He won't like me—no one likes me." It was plain to be seen that Carma's confidence in herself had departed with the loss of Pete. Like Dan, he had been a refuge and a shelter. Carma was buffeting the waves of loneliness and regret on an uncharted sea. She'd find herself, but it would lake time. Marian gave her a little affectionate hug and, for a moment, Carma leaned against her. "Hang on to Dan," she whispered huskily. "You've got something there." She straightened and the painted smile flashedfback. Marian said, "Yes, I've got something there." Dan would thought. She mustn't think of Dan's failure, she mustn't compare him with Bill. This was their wedding anniversary. She introduced Carma to Amy Ellen, unconsciously measuring one against the oilier. Carma wan at the top, she was a successful business woman. But where was her air of well being ar.d prosperity? Marian frowned, awai-3 c£ the great gulf between Carma anJ Amy Ellen, Were women only supposed to achieve along the lines of wlfehood and motherhood? V.V.s their place in life's background? * * # JDANDY MEANS arrived white Dan was passing cocktails. HJ had a wide, not too handsome face, a loosely jointed frame, sandy hair, and an agreeable,, natural manner. Dan said, "This is my wife, Randy. Marian, be nice to .'imi, he's a swell guy/' He had p. firm baiick-lasp, liis eyes neltr«M- vuproved nor Sis- approved. Accepting a co'vklail, ha carried it with acvui-omed ep.se as Marian introduced hl;r. to her guests. He knew none of them, but was at ones uari of the gathering. He sat down beside Carma, only to jump to his feet as Dolly, scarlet-cheeked and smiling, came from the kitchen. Gazing at her, his eyes held a startl*i gJeaM. "Dolly., may J pi-Men; Randy Means?" Marian said, explaining, "This is Dolly Harkness. She's o»Jr favorite sister."
