His face lit will] deliglil and he got up quickly, but the waiter was coming with his highball and Tony had to tell him. he was changing tables. Sherry's automatic smile was frozen on her face. She clenched her hands hard and tried to breathe naturally. "You're glad to sec him of - ' course,", she told herself desper- '-- ately,."but you can't swoou in his arms, you fool!" Then Tony was saying, "I just tried ; to get you on the telephone! Jenny tells me you're working!" ' arid he kissed her and sat down. . Sherry said, "Yes, I'm working. How well you're looking!

Tony was looking puzzlcdly around. 'This is Henri's" he saiii, "isn't I? I mean, where Henri's used .0 bo?" Sherry had hoped he would not .hink of that. The realization made her want to cry. She had to say something quickly so she asked jbout Kris, but Tony had nol heard anything for months either. 'But isn't it grand about San- tiro!" he said. "lie's one of the niishly now; did a swell job on hib last picture. I wouldn't mind having him for mine." Sherry smileci. She said, "And after the way you used to razz him!" "Well, we've all mncte the grade, sweet!" Tony said. "Funny when you think of it—the four of us doing the things we planned." He stopped for a minute, then his voice was quieter. "Only you were going lo do my stories," Sherry tried lo smile. She knew what to sny, but she coula SC' Tony and I'orsclf sitting in a .vim shackle yellow car while thej •atchcd the dark water and mado rciucndous plans. She shut her eyes because tha iclurc hurt.
