She used to come in the beauty shop where I worked. Gay. full of life. Smart Knew all the angles. She was willing lo give me a hand. 'I'll get you out of the beauty parlor, honey, show you how to live. I'll show you how to get what you want out of life.' " Nona McGuire folded the green sweater carefully. Her hands shook as she put it gently back into the carton. "Well, you showed me Lilly. Goodby for now." Bea Cosgrove kept her voice harsh when she snapped, "Stop acting like the wayward daughter in a Z picture. Be yourself. She's just as dead as if she'd had a fine funeral and led 10 mink coats." The younger woman's body relaxed, and her eyes shone with anger. "You're hardhearted, aren't you? Smirking and smiling and sympathetic on lop!" "I know," Bea said wpririly, "and underneath I'm jusl flint." "All right. Go ahead and laugh. I suppose it is funny to you to think someone would have any feelings. Kow'd you gel thai hard? Forty-year-old school teacher! Why do you lie about your age?" "You think I'm oider?" "No. And it's an easy way to fool most people. When a woman says she's 40. people believe she's that at least. But you can't (ool me. Where are (he little lines around your eyes? Where's thai sag in the chin? Where's lhat coarsening of Ihe skin you need make-up lo hide?

At least I'm old enough so 1 apprechue a qood night's sleep. Don't you want to leave your col and lake the other bed?" McGUIRE glared at her, did not answer. She walked stilTly to Ihe cot. climbed in and pulled Ihe cover so viciously it came up from the bottom. Miss Cosgrove blew out the candle. made a more leisurely entrance to her own bed. She said, "Good night." She was certain the low multer from the girl's cot was noi an echo of thai wish. She knew she would not sleep, yet she forced herself to relax, tried to make her breathing more even. A long hour passed. A silent hour. Nona's cot creaked. There was a little snuffle. Bea waited. The cot creaked again. The snufTle was clearer. Bare feel pattered on the floor. "Miss Cosgrovei Miss Cosgrove! Oh please wake up!" Bea sat up, reached oul and took Nona's arm. "I'm awake, ll's all right. I'm awake," "T-t-lomorrow I won't act like this. 1 — 1 promise. T-lonight 1 can't stand it." Miss Cosgrove pulled the sobbing girl inlo the narrow bed beside her. She held her unlil the shuddering subsided gradually. "It'll work oul, Nona." she said softly. "Go to sleep now. It'll work out." Long after the girl was asleep Bea still held her. Bui it was to herself, she tried lo give some com- forl now when she whispered, "ItU work- out all right."
