Odd she should think now of Fritz. She had not thought ot him —deliberately— during these long, lazy, heavenly weeks. Had he given her 3 thought or two while she was gone! Would he ever kiss her again— in that same way? He could not give her much. Only fun and adventure, laughter and make-believe. Were they the things that counted more? Th< things that money could not buy. She had to be sure. About so many things. No on* else could answer these questions, decide for her. . . . The others were coming back now in the motor boat. Barry went below to help them out. Gaynel could hear her mother waxing enthusiastic over their day and going into great detail. Miss Cupples' prim voice contributed a remark or two; Melvin added his guffaw, that always sounded like part of hae act. They were ail coming wp. . . . "Just in time for a cocktail— how loveljri Oh, there yo« arc darUngr Twooped down on Gay- neJ, giving her cheek an affectionate peck. "You haven't been just lying here alt day! You'll ha»e a sunstroke yet, darling, though it's lovely up here now, simply lovely, now that the sun's gone round. And you aren't wearing your dark glasses! Haven't I told you. darling, you'll ruin your eyes. "Come on up, Miss Pierce. You won't (all, though I do feel the same way. . . . Why is it, Barry dear, boats have ladders lor steps? I knew a woman who Tell off one once and broke her neck. Give Mist Pierce a hand, Melvin. And I do think they're bad Iqck, ladders, I mean, though goodness knows I'm not superstitious, unless it's black cats. . . . "The Island is too divine, isn't it, Melvin? One cocktail won't hurt you, Miss Pierce. Not one little one. Cuppy, dear, I wonder if you'd mind fetching a scarf for me, I think it's going to be chilly, especially after these delightful iced drinks. ... Do pour Miss Pierce one, Barry dear. We've all had such a day . . . you should have gone along, Gaynet . . . it's too quaint, only horses, no automobiles allowed, imagine that! I can still hear that clap-clap beating m my ears over the cobblestones—the horses' hoofs, I mean." Really exhausted after this lengthy monologue, she sank down in a steamer chair. Melvin adjusted the back (or her, got her a cushion, and i robe for across her knees. Barry poured Miss Pierce a cocktail, which she insisted, after one hasty gulp, already made her head dizzy, although she admitted she liked it; she even liked the dizzy (eeling, now that she was getting used to it. Miss Cupples came hack up with the scarf and said strt would have plain lemonade, if yo« please; she had never tasted anything alcoholic in her life. Gaynel said, "Where's Pat?" Her mother mid she had gone to her stateroom. "The poor child looked rather green. If you know what I mean. No doubt she stayed m the poo4 too long, though good- ness know: I warned her. hut she doesn't always listen to me." • • • QAYNEL got up. "j think r'n go down"—it might be well to take a look at Pat; sometime: she did gel ill from the water—"ii you'll excuse me. No thanks. Barry, no more, or my head will get liRht." She went down to the stateroom she shared with PaL It was dark. Pat was sprawled on the lower bunk. But even m the dim light, Gayrwl could se« something was wrong with her. "What is it?" she asked, her voice shnrp with fear. She knelt down beside her, fell her head. It was hot and feverish; her skin peculiarly damp. "Are yo« ilL Pat?" "A little," Pat admitted. She made a face as though she had had a bad pain. "I guess I did stay in too long, Gay. Though I came otn once or twice. Or maybe it was tne chocolate bars. I ate two, in between . . ." "You shouldn't. Food and water don't mix. You know that, Pat." Probably < good old-fashioned turnmy-achc, Gaynel thought, with a let-down of relief. Lucky she hadn't had cramps when she was swimming. "Maybe it wasn't that," Pat said. "Melvin, the worm, made a grab for me when we were swimming. Tried to kiss me. He's enough to make anyone sick. I slapped his face for him." Pat's face twisted with pain again. "Oooh!" she gasped. "It's pretty bad, Sis. It's right here. Not in my tummy. Lower." She showed Gnynel where. Her right side, very low down. Gaynel's face went white now." She straightened up. Fear gripped her again. "You're sure it's right there?" she asked. The doctor had told them I ait year when Pat had had a similar attack that her appendix was none too good. Surely it could not be that now. Way off here, out in a big lake, no doctors or hospitals close by. "I'm . . . sure," Pat managed, her body writhed with the pain now; her face did look green. "It's worse . . . like a knife . . . and I'm going to be sick, Gay . . . terribly sick . . " (T.
