"You doti't hnve to lei Roger live hero. It's nnr house." Ah, Der TnR, I thought. I^ooks like this lime we're going to throw in together. Th« Capners got a Ro<xi early st«rt on their journey, and so did Roger. A jeep stopped at our door. Out jumped two officers. "It's Hoftor,** I stnRC-whispered to Rob. "And a friend." "Sn what!" Here i4 was af;;tin; Rob had changed hte mind ,-wid wittio**t yo much as a hand signal. We were ; forever piling up on issues because of that obnoxious hnbR of his. Just when I Itions-ht wo wore in cahoots, I would be le(t holding the sack. 1 thought of the time I simply had to accept an invitation to the house of acquaint.') ncp* Rob found unbearably boring. He warrved me to got him out of there by 10 o'clock at the very latest. Either tbat, or he wouldn't go. At 9:45, I began to lay the groundwork for our teave-taking. 1 had things under control and went up to get my coat. As I came down the stairs, Rob looked up in 5\»rprisc Instead of eagerly springing to his f«et as I hilly expected him to do, he held his sent rnd demanded to know where I vv*:. going. W>ien I gave the old line about the headache, he called on the world to note whether there ever hnd besn such a spoilsport before. Grumbling nnil complaining, h« did go home with me. When I upbraided him for leaving me out on a limb, he admitted he hnd forgotten asking me to get him out ot there, and even »aid he hnd been having a** unexpectedly plensanl time. No. I wasn't entirely unprepared tor Rob's change of heart toward Roger. But I'd had a change of heart; I was on the other end o( the see-saw. I had grown tired of him. The novelty nf watching him enjoy our pojwcjusionji had worn off. He WSH more trouble than he was worth; his entertainment value had dropped below par. I didn't want him to move back in. TJOGKR sailed ioio the hotts« without stopping to ring the bell. VU' presented Colonel Hart- wicke and said they had been up working most of the night, were in need of a shave and shower. and tkint he could think of no more pleasant place in which to :iavu them than in oiir house. "The Capners just left," I temporized, as though Roger didn't already know that. "I don't know in what condition they left things. N "After B.O.Q.," Colonel Hort- wicke laughed, "I'm :mr* they wiH seem glisteningly pure." It would have been interesting to me to hear th< line Roger fed strangers before ne browjfM ttiein to house—men who always accepted our hospitality an a matter of course. Colonel Hartwicke seemed a gentleman; h« wouldn't hav> imposed; he must have been sold on th« idea that h« was confer ring M>m« sort of favor on MS. Both h* and Roger were so ceremonious and polite, I couldn't very weM fail to play up to them; »o I ran upstairs to £«e to fresh towels soap, and a hasty selling V rights of the Capners 1 room*. Fasting th* front window*, caught sight of Roger and Colon* Hartwicke carrying valpacs, too lockers, ami musette bags up the walk toward the open front door "Roger!" I called sharply. "Yoi can't move in here." To sitppor my vagary v 1 added. "We aren going to rent rooms any longer. Tli;ii sounded like snfr gitmiMfc; Hob had once suggested it. He slowed down long eno^h it look embarrassed for me. "How can we xhavr and bathe wit ho** equipment?" he asked in hiit torn of sweet rensonnbleness. "Oh."
