You came here to be with him—no?" "No," said Holly, confused at rrst by the Latinizing of Steve's Irst name. Then, "I work for lim. I am down here as his paid cretary. But I happen to know hat he does not intend to marry the Senorita Hernandez." "It does not matter," he said soothingly. "Do not be jealous Amapola. The Americano is handsome, yes, but let Carmeiita have him. Do you not have me?" please take me inside," Holly said, desperately. In another moment she would either laugh hysterically or lose her temper am slap his face as Carmeiita had slapped Steve's. . ""But I shall see you again?" he bepged, softly. "Soon? Yes?" Tm afraid—no," she said, gent- r. He aghed. "It win be but the tweeter for the waiting," be said She was glad Steve met them a the door. "My dance, I think," he said.

"He told me he admired me, that my hair is beautiful, and he asked roe for a date," she told him, feeling it might be wise to hold back he rest That is hardly annoy- ig. It is very nattering." He looke'i down at her with a uzzled expression. "Well, sure, 'our hair is beautiful," he said. She sighed. "He's a tropical teat wave on feet!" she breathed, "And he's engaged to Carmelta," he reminded her, sharply, and he can have her, and Heav- n's blessings be upon them." "Not any more. Papa's making m arrangement with you which will leave Jose free to marry me." "Well, Isn't that big ot him!" 1KB noticed before she glanced away, that he was looking at ler differently. At first, back there >n the dock that first day, he had egarded her as an embarrassing nistake, an annoying blunder. Then he thought of her as an ef- icient employee. Now, suddenly he was seeing her as a beautiful ;irl to be danced with, perhaps to be taken out in the moonlight. The music stopped and he let ler go abruptly. "You fell for itl" he flung at her bitterly. "Any guy with a line—!" After the dance they all went down to the dock to see the ship set out for the open sea, through :he bobbing stems of discarded bananas which floated on the black and silver water like some weird, aquatic plants. Then they went jack to the plantation house which was heavenly quiet and peaceful now, and there they could sleep as long as they wished undisturbed by chugging engine, snorting trucks, and shouting banana picks' The next morning Holly was in the study before Steve finished his coffee. She looked up his article for she wanted to read again what he had said about Jose Kontcra. The book-type file which contained his manuscript carbons was misplaced on the shelf, which struck her as odd. But when she founc the article she found something even more strange. The sheets were puckered under the staple a one comer, and when she glanced through them she discovered tha one had been ripped loose, leaving a jaggedly tern corner under the staple.
