Tim reached for his canes, moved Lo get up. Jean did not lake her eyes ofl him. "Hi." Tim grinned, fully enjoying her astonishment HOW. Jean Roland did not smile. She was, as she studied Tim, trying lo make a decision. Abruptly, characteristically, sh made the decision. She turned abruptly to Jigger. "Would you fetch my wrap, please? Miss Roland; 1 Jigger sped away. ( Jean turned back to Tim, "Suppose we go somewhere we can tsit down'and celebrate? 1 I Tim was embarrassed. "But I don't want you to leave the Ball \ for me." j She gave him * full I "I do," she said. That evening it was very quie 1 at Giulio's, a gracious little dining room, a lew doors cast of .he Avenue on 52nd Street. In the mistily lighted Lounge in front, s gnomish young pianist played Debussy with delicately wistful fingers. The music tinkled back into the luminous dusk of the small dining room, just reaching Ihe wall table where Jean and Tim sat side by side. Ai first, Jean did tnosi of Ihe talking. II was a great happiness tor her. she told Tim. to see him oul of the wheel chair. Now, she intimated, they could be together often m New York. That is, she smiled, i/ he wished it Then, before he hncl opportunity to question her. she shrewdly soughl to divest his mind ot any doubts or suspicions he mjght have had. She had been so busy on her return to New York, she explained, she had not had a single minute lo write or telephone The business of getting home had thrown her into complete confusion, and, on top of thai, she said, the hasty preparations for the Ball had all but driven her mad. Finally, she decided, she would not let Tim know of the Ball until it WAS over. She was certain, she said, the winter white gown would win the award. She thought it best to wail then and surprise him with the announcement: But Tim had Ions since forgiven, or, more correctly, forgotten. when they feft the J - J Empire, Tim thought they would be gone only a few minutes. But Jean, at Guilio's, at ease and enjoying herself, made no move to return. When Tim sug- gested -Dcrhap? h w time she shotjJti yo back, she was Amused. "You are much more fascinating thnn anyone t^ere." she said. "Now wail a minute." firr protested. "Whose design won tonight?" "But took who modeled it." "A model is only as good as what she wears." She was all can- dnr now. "Here you are in New York, walking aiouncl handsome nmj healthy What could be more exciting? 1 haven't begun lo over Ibe surprise of seeing you—" She was imimato, physical now "—and I have an idea it'll take longer than tonight to gel over the pleasure of it." "Take as long as you like," he grinned. "We're both young. It sounds fine to me." Paul Fancier 3 alone troubled Tim's evening. H was with some uneasiness Hint he mentioned him. Was h« the Paul of the Jean Paul? Was lie the ogre she had intimated the head o£ the firm to be? * • • IEAN was immediately wary, "1 "' don't think anyone could consider him a Prince Charming-underneath.* 1 "He has the old charm on the surface, I'll say that for him." 'He does make a pleasant appearance, iiriVi that is important in the business." Jean moved closed. 'I didn't want lo describe him to you out at the hospital. I was afraid you'd be jealous." Tim was pleased, soothed. "You knew even then I might be jealous of someone else?" She laughed her intimate little laugh. "No one could «ver call you subtle, Mr. Reese." Thus easily was Mr. Fancier* disposed of, (T« B« Conilnwed) YES, WE BUY Scrap Inm and Metal, Old Cars, flows, Cultivators Tin, Wire, Batteries. Radiators, Rags and other items of little value to you.
