Many of them had big stems ot green bananas on them, and she was about to remark that the silly things were growing upside down, then recalled reading somewhere that bananas grew that way. They swept between two white stone gates, ablaze with bougaio-^ villeas, and along a curving drive under trees that were masses of crimson and scarlet and flame- colored flowers, and which were named appropriately enough "flam boy ante," or flame trees, and so up to a stuccoed bouse. It WHS white with a red-tilec roof, and a wide veranda, and an outside stone stairway going up the side of the house to the second story. A dark-skinned boy in dungarees came down the steps and took the bags out of the back of the car Steve and Holly followed him into a wide, cool hall. \ MAN met them there. He wai about Steve's age, but, Holly thought not nearly so goodtooking with sandy hair and a good natured, round face. Laughter )i sudden sparks in his blue eyes, an- tugged at the corners of his mouth But it didn't break through. "This is Holly Dunstan," saic Steve. "Ray Porter, your hos white you're here." Ray recovered. He came towarc her quickly with hand outstretches in cordial greeting. "Hi, Miss Dun slani" / Holly smiled back at him as sh put her band in bis.

"Thank you," said Holly, with sudden husk in her throat At least the Porters were going o make her welcome, and sud- enly New York didn't seem so far way, and she didn't seem cjuite so lone in an alien land. She had time to unpack ant lang up her clothing and to look »ut her window over the stone wall to the winding thread o roadway which lost itself in the blue hills. When she came downstairs again he saw Ray Porter sitting by i window. He sprang up as shi came in. **Sit down," he invit€:ri. "Elsa' almost ready. She's thrilled t lave another woman on th place." "I'm going back on the nex boat," she said flatly. Ray looked nt her. Then h leaned forward and offered her light for her cigaret. "Five'll get you ten you don't, e said. She shook her head. "My mind made up." "This is a swell place to YoiiTl love it." "Oh, it's beautiful," she sighec "If only—Well, I know Mr. Trace doesn't like me—" "Aw, Jorget «," he advised 'Steve's a good guy." He hesita ted and looked at the end of h cigaret thoughtful!?. "He slaughter me if he knew 1 was telling you this, but I think you should know it. When he was with the Marines, he was engaged to a girl. 1 couldn't see the girl myself. I thought she was a spoiled kid, selfish, the kind that never grows up. But that wasn't any ot rny business. I couldn't tell him, even though he's my best friend. When he came beck, he iund she had been married for wo years. Steve claimed he wae t women from then on- Maybe ou can do something for him. e's the kind of guy who normally light to give out with a good old olC whistle nnd a prayer of hanksgiving that you are a retty." "1 wouldn't want him to be a volf either." she snid quickly. Sieve came down soon, and a ew minutes later Elsa called them or lunch. Elsa was young, tittle, and quite >lond. and Holly liked her at mcc. She saw that Elsa liked her md was glad. She helped with the dishes afterwards in the little tchen that overlooked a million dollar view ot jungle valley and louritain. They had given Steve the 11- srary, a small room to the right of the hall, for his study, and the next morning promptly at 9, Holly and Steve went there for their first morning's work. For three days he drove her lard, then the dictation tapered off, for he had caught up with himself. "I'm soon going to need a trip to the cofTee hacienda,*' he said at lunch that day. "Whenever it's convenient for you, Ray." "You're coming with us, Holly," said Elsa. IT was good to get away from the typewriter and drive up through banana and sisal ?.nd sugar cane plantations into the mountains. They needed a big white house, sprawling along a wide, flat shelf on the mountainside overlooking marvelous vistas of purple mountains in the distance, and wooded valleys below. ' The proprietor, Senor Hernandez, cnrne out to meet them and took them inside where his daughter Garment a was their hostess. She was a brunette, .slight, and elfin, with flashing black eyes and sparkling white teeth and a vivacious manner. Her father referred to her as a child, and Holly guessed she might be about 17, but .thc-re was nothing childlike in her eyes when she looked at Steve.
