Jack Mcrrlck's voico ovnr the phone, iigreeiiiR to come at onco to see her, still held its old magic, but Its Influence upon Marion WHS now curiously dual. Even while her hnart told her ;hat here wan the only mnn Bhn had i-ver loved or pvcr could lovt?, her mind lic;pt cool watch and recalled her from 'liiiigeroiiH wanderings Into the past. .-iho'w.iH now fighting for her little son -for the son who was nameless, and who must now have his chance. ' Unfortunately—or perhaps fortunately—at Hlirh crises there is always Homebody at hand to point out the .path of oxp'-dlpney. For, no sooner had fuller left, in the comfortable confidence that .Tnck and Marinn would Unravel their tangle, than Miss Potter, having been Informed that Jack Mer- rlck was on the way, snw and vaguely tihadowol forth I'isiistrous consequences if Marion revealed to him that Jackie was his child. "There'll he some rejolrln 1 ," observed Miss Potter, 'when those Mer- rlcks learn that they've got n son and heir." Marlon looked up inquiringly. "Young Mcrrli'lt's wife can't never have a child of her own," went on Potter. 'Ever since she had that motor smash-up in France she's been a t cripple, In a., and there's no heir to all those millions except our • Jackie." v ' "Well, what of that?" Marion's hrows wore drawn In a puzzled frown. "You'll have to watch they don't try and steal Mm from you." "Steal him—" ,, And suddenly n whole new field of imperil opened before Marlon. •••i i "Well," continued Potter garfuloun- • ly, "If that old man Merrlclt took It Into his head that he wanted Jackie, with this Influence and money we wouldn't stand a dog's chance against him." "But they wouldn't—" ,, "I don't say they'd steal 'im—but . .It's on the cards they might." M, Potter had done her part. Hence . the command from Marlon, even as . the doorbell rang to announce Jack Merrlck: "Potter, don't dress Jackie! Keep 'hirn away."' Drowning people re-live their lives .' r bt'fore they go down the third time, It 'is said. But Marion saw many things _ and shrank from most of them in the brief interval that . elapsed between Jack's ring and his appearance before her, as the maid ushered him In. In •that interval she had time to push a "toy horse out of sight. "•', 'Hello, Marlon. You see 1 came 'Tight away." ' "Yes. It was good of you. Somo- ''thing—something came up, and I ' thought I might need your help." "Well, you can back on that, any time." "Thank you. But—but you see—It really doesn't matter—it's all settled. I—" "You'd rather not tell me what it Is?" "It's really not important now." There was an awkward silence. Marion felt a slow tide of shame overflowing her, shame that at the same time angered her, for she knew it was undeserved. But what would Jack think of her calling him on such flimsy pretext? "It was good of you to come over," she repeated, in a desperate effort to make conversation. "You look well—a little thinner—" "Three years' work—and exercise^" he replied easily. He had taken a precarious seat on a chair-arm r a position that was meant to tell her, reassuringly, "Don't worry, I'm going soon." « 73tit it's a hopeless business, trying to beat the Ironic gods who regulate the circumstances of life. In this particular case the gods were playful— and Miss Potter was again asleep at the switch. For the elusive Jackie had escaped and was hidden behind that very chair. But not for long. Jackie was a young man who craved the limelight. "Yours?" inquired Jack, in amazement. "Yes—mine," responded Marion. She wondered what sort of Impression her hopeless tone conveyed. » "I see," replied Jack, finally. "Well, that's that. You know, Marion, I nearly punched! someone In the nose today at the club for saying there was a baby in the case. I hoped it wasn't true." Ills eyes held hers steadily. And she knew the game was up. Marlon touched Jack Merrick's arm ever so lightly, but her voice told more than her words: "Look at him, Jack—look at him very closely. Then you will understand." And after a long look, Jack understood. 1 • • • l When they had said good night to the little boy they faced each other In the outer room. "How old is he, Marlon?" "How old would ho be? Think—you must surely remember." His smile, when it came, was tender, "I can hardly believe It. Yet it's right that It should be so. But why didn't you come and tell me?" "I wanted to stand on my own." "Was that fair to me? Or to .him?" "I was afraid you might try! to take him from me." "Marlon—" "Can you blame me?" 'I know—we mustn't' think of that now. We must think onty of him. Oh, you don't know how I've longed for something like this! And what a great little kid he la!" "Jack, you will stand by him now, won't you?" "Try and stop me!" •The thing we must do is halt the rumor that about Mr. Ferguson the papers want to play up." "Leave that to me, Marlon. But I'll have to go and see to It. And I don't want to go!' A sudden wave that was half suffering and half Joy seemed to rise and roil its warm tides over her heart. But Jack was dashing on impetuously:' "Marlon, when you left me I went to Paris—I had to get away. Everything here reminded me of you. I nearly went crazy over there. Then Flip Carson came. I'd know her all my life—and she seemed to understand. Well—we were married. And then—4 the smash. You know." "Yes, I remember the day,"she answered quietly. "Then when I was convalescent, they showed me poor.little Flip, all battered up—so brave and patient. And I remembered your words about being a man—and sticking—you know that, too." "Yes." He was silent a moment, and she seemed to hear In the air the beat of invisible wings, as if the inscrutable angels of chance were hovering over her, 'Marlon, we've got to come together again! We must!" . ', "How can we, Jack?" she asked, faintly. • "I don't know yet. But we can! Remember that, Marion. And now I'm off to stifle the press. But watch for me, I'll be back!"
