She told Barry about Emily 1 ! lalest Interim and how the Little Theater Movement, and its disciples, had practically taken over Ihe entire house. It wasn't just the extra expenditures, and there were plenty of extras already, in spite of Emily's declaration that it would not cost one cent. But K was having so many people underfoot all the time, and the noise: and the fact that the routine of the whole household was upset. There was too much work, ax it was, for poor old Kooee. "If only mother would consent to sell, and take a smaller place that ve could keep up half de- cenMy," she said, though she knew thnl topic had been covered and argued a hundred times with no results. Mrs. Teare believed she would cease to exist, were she forced to give up the big house to which she had come as a bride. Even the suggestion of such a possibility brought on her worse case ot nerves. Barry did not feel that GaynePs mother should give up her home, either. He told her not to worry about this latest idea ot her mother'*. "It'll scon be gone -with-the- wind,» he said. Like Denny, Barry did not take Mrs. Tear'i newest fads seriously. He said he oSd think Denny should be made to shoulder part of the responsibilities, since Gaynel's shoulders were mucb too slight and she wouldn't really allow anyone else to take it off her. "Denny's got the stuff," he said "All ne needs is the incentive to make him settle down." ' He rwung the car Into the airport She smiled up at him. slipping an arm through his as they walked toward the hangar It did help; for all her independence, it was nice to have someone like Barry to lean upon. "ph, what a beauty!" she exclaimed, when Barry showed her th« ship he was thinking of buying. was as eager for a tryout as he. Barry was a splendid pilot. He used the craft for both business and pleasure trips. _ "D° you mean to tell me you simply step on her and od she goes?" Gaynel asked. Her face was flushed with eager interest is Barry explained the complicated array of instruments on the dash. "Why, I could learn to pilot a ship like this!" Barry said, "That's a deal. Ill leach you this summer. Then you can fly to the moon whenever you like." They soon were taxiing across the tield. This was the part Gaynel liked best, as they gained momentum, the ship seeming to gather all her force beneath her. then that gradual, thrilling lift that left the earth dropping away from them. "Like it?" Barry settled back, smiled, at her. "Love it!*' Gaynel vowed. He felt her regard and turned his head. ( His eyes smiled into her*. His lips said, "1 want you to know something, Gaynel. I can't think ot anything better than to look at you for the rest of my life. That's what I want. And to shoulder all your burdens for all time. You know that, Gaynel; you've il- wa>s known it, haven't you?" Her gaze dropped before the look that sprang into his. "Yes, 1 guess 1 nave. Barry Though al times I wasn't sure you seemed to take me so much—for granted." "I'd never do that! If 1 did give that impression, ever, I wouldn't deserve so much as one look al you. my dear." He gave his at- lention to the throttle tor a moment, banking to circle back toward the port "Aren't yon going to give me an answer, Gaynel?" • • • CO that was that Barry had "actually asked her" at last Was she glad or sorry? She could not be sure. "Am 1 to understand," she took refuge by matching her lone to his, "that I have just received an honorable proposal of marriage from you, Mr. Bainbridge?" "You have." Barry held up his hand in solemn oath. "If you wish. I'll have my lawyer draw it up in black-and-white with the necessary witnesses as to my requisites Miss Teare." "There is not much question as to the acceptability of your requisites, Mr. Bainbridge." They were both sneaking as though the other were slightly deaf. "I'll be honest with you," Gaynel said. "The requisites you mention make it difficult for me to give you that answer. They are so tremendous—and tempting." He said quickly, "I didn't expect an answer right oB the bat, my dear." But she knew that he eov- ered a »ery keen disappointment, which proved he had taken her pretty much for granted, after all. "You'll think it over, won't you?" "Of course I'll think it over." she said gently, all bantering goo. from her face and tone. "I'll think it over very carefully, Barry darling. And I hope—truly I do- that the answer will be the you want."
