CHAPTER VII CALLY recovered from the shock of her tumble much more quickly than Doctor Barnes had anticipated. He did not know that her speedy recovery was due to her determination that she must get better so that she could see Dan. She would not go away without seeing with her own bright eyes how Dan was, without hearing him say that he had forgiven her. Sally's father had talked with Doctor Barnes about the boy. They had agreed upon a consultation with a famous surgeon from Boston. Nothing was to be spared for the lad who had done so much for Sally, Sam Blair maintained. Upon Sally's insistence, Dan's benefactor's name was kept secret. She was afraid he would refuse, any assistance—even to see the surgeon from Boston—i£ he knew who had offered to send for him. Sally knew Dan Reynolds' stubborn pride. He was to be told that some unknown person, a gentleman who had taken an in- terest.in him because of his skiing ability and possibilities for-Olympic entry, had offered to. stand all expenses. Dan must never knpw that this man was Sally's father and that Sally, herself, was behind all this. * * * AT last the day came when she was allowed to pay Dan a visit. :She had looked forward to it so eagerly, so hopefully, that she was not prepared for the shock of her first glimpse of him. Could this be Ran, this thin, weak, white person, head swathed in bandages, gray eyes staring and enigmatical, one leg stretched straight and stiff before him, in its cruel, cumbersome cast! "You mustn't stay too long or get him excited," the nurse cautioned before she closed the door. Sally had an impulse to call her back. She was not sure she wanted to be left alone with Dan. Not sure she had the courage to face him. She had waited so long for this moment and now she did not know what to do, what to say. There seemed only one thing, and so she said it as simply, as quickly as possible. "Dan . . . can you ever forgive .me? I'm so dreadfully sorry." So- sorry that her heart was wrung .With despair, that she could have knelt down beside him, giving way to an abandon of grief and remorse. If only he would not look at her like that! Without any expression in his grave eyes, any hope in his white face. He lifted one hand, let it fall weakly onto the cover again. He made an,attempt at a smile, an attempt that brought tears to her eyes. His voice was little more than n whisper. "That's okey," he said. "I don't blame you.' For the accident." • » * gALLY knew that he meant it, for Dan was not one to say anything he did not mean. Yet, she knew that there were other things, unspoken, sharp barriers between them, that he could not forgive. Her deceit. The fact that she had laughed at him. The dare that had been the beginning of their odd friendship. He was too big, loo fine, to blame her for what she had done to him physically. But now he never would believe in her again. "You're going to be all right again," Sally said. She wished her voice sounded more convincing. "Doctor Hartford"—he was the Boston surgeon—-"says. you'll be as right as ever—in time." Dan nodded slowly. His expression still blank. His grave eyes seemed to echo that "in time." WJuit would he do until then, this boy who had been so swift, so sure on his feet? "You mustn't worry about anything," Sally said. Oh, if only she could tell him that she would like to spend the rest of her life making this up to him! He did not attempt to answer that. It was as though he felt there were no answer. After a moment of silence he said in the same low tone, "And you—are you okey, Sally Blair?" Sally nodded; her throat was so tight she was not sure she could trust herself to speak. Yes, she was all right. That was the worst of it. Gladly she would have exchanged places with this boy, if only she could have. "You . . . you haven't forgiven me—for the other?" She could not go away, say goodby, without asking that. Her dark eyes pleaded with him to be merciful in his answer. "For deceiving you, Dan. For being such a blind, stupid, little idiot." "That doesn't matter now," Dan said. His look met hers, but then he turned away. Sally knew what he meant. He felt that their worlds were farther apart than ever. "I meant—everything that I said. About liking you, Dan." Sally's voice faltered. It was no use; nothing she could say could break down the barriers between them. "I'm sorry I called you a coward." * ,* * TTE raised his hand again, in an •*"*• erasing gesture. He made another attempt to smile. "Please," he murmured. "It doesn't matter, really it doesn't." Then just for a flash this boy, whose pride was so stubborn, whose courage was so great, let her glimpse .the bitterness in his heart. "Npthing matters a great deal. You see, I don't believe I shall ever ski again." "You mustn't say that!" Now Sally did kneel down by his bed, a swift, impulsive movement. She- caught one of his hands in hers, clung to it. "Of course you'll ski again! Doctor Hartford has promised that you will! Not right away, of couse. Not for years, perhaps. . . ." "Years!" Dan said. And his voi.ee sounded strong, but only because of the bitterness it contained, the awful despair. He even managed a little laugh, "Years. . . . That will be too late," he said. "You mustn't say that," Sally said again. But she knew that he was right. The years could slip by so quickly. There would bq other boys to win points for their college, to carry off honors of th? meet. Others to become chami pions, be hailed for the Olympics, The nurse stood in the doorway, Sally's time was up. She raised Dan's hand to let it rest a momenl against her cheek, reluctantly lei it go. "Goodby, Dan." For a little while, her heart said. It coulcj not be forever; she could not havq endured it, if it had. "You'll see-, some day—that I'm right." You'lJ believe in me. I'll make it up to you, she wanted to add. But she knew there was no use in saying such things yet. Maybe the year? would take care of that, too. "And good luck," she added softly! "You're going?" Dan asked. Hi? gray eyes looked at her. She waa so lovely, so youthfully sweet. He turned his head away, as though he could not look at her any longer. "Goodby, Sally Blair," he said. "It's been nice—knowing you." A smile trembled on his lips. That was the way to say goodby, lightly, gaily, gallantly— as Corey, or the boys of Sally's glamorous bright world would have. But it was not Sally's way now. She bent swiftly, before she turned to leave, kissed Dan Reynolds goodby, her fresh soft lips brushing lightly, yet lingering]?-, against his.
