Emily was pleased. She now had a heart to consider, as well as nervei. . She would scarcely allow Gaynel out of her sight, so that she was obliged to get a few days leave of absence from the office. She followed her with big mournful eyes, faint reproachful sighs. ind her most patient and sweetest ^ when Gaynel was In the room. She did not attempt to extract any promise from .her daughter In regard to her leaving her at such a time, but it was understood, in the very atmosphere 1 of the big house that any siich procedure would without doubt be the end of Emily, Gaynel waa allowed one brief, tense interview with Fritz. On the third evening of the five days. It took place in the little writing room. i "I've reserved a drawing -room |on the Santa Fe," Fritz said. "Day after tomorrow. Will you have that bag" packed?" His tone was light, but his blue eyes had never been more serious. Gaynel said. **You know I cant. 1 "I don't know anything of the sort You could if you wanted. We've still time enough." '*Two days." "Two minutes should be enough to make up your mind. If, said before, you wanted to make it up. See here, my sweet," Fritz adopted his masterful air, "you can't really mean you're going to let this stop you?" "You said some things that were ilmost unforgivable, fritz." THEY both were standing, as though there was not time to sit down. But someone had to say those hlngs. You can't really mean you'd let me go without you, that you're not going with me? Think of the Christmas we planned— sunshine and roses." She said, There'll be other ihristmases." And wondered why t could not see how it twisted her leart to say It. "You know I can't -this time, Fritz." Because your mother Is ill, I suppose," FYitz said, impatiently. 'But you can't honestly tell me it's anything serious. Gaynel." "The doctor said she must have rest and quiet. If she was upset again, it might prove serious." 'She's just stalling. She thinks f she still can persuade you to marry your gilded boy friend, and lis 20 millions." Gayne! said. "I can't let you talk that way, Fritz." Out of that pride and hurt he said, "Maybe you're stalling for time.-too. Maybe it's hard for you to K> V « up the idea of those 20 millions." Her face went white. "You have no right to talk that way to me. To say such things." "I seem to have no rights at all.** "You're being terribly unfair." ""All's fair in love , . .' You've purely heard that one." **You r r» being unreasonable. 1 "As I said before," Fritz look up hU place In front of her once more but he folded his arms in back him. as though determined to keep them there, "this isn't getting us anywhere. And as you have reminded me, several times, ther in't much time; I'm keeping you. not. But he could see that her nswer was the same as it had >een. "There's still time," Fritz said. fis eyes compelled hers to look t him. in the way that only his yes could do. So that her heart budded madly against her ribs, ind her knees were shaking. "We an round up a minister; we can have that Christmas with rosei and sunshine — together.** Sti'l she did not answer. He snid. "It's now^-or never, ay." For the moment his disarming grin flashed forth, his tone was teasing, tender. Then he was he PYitz who could be difficult, domineering, high - handed. "I mean it. Gaynel. 1 never meant anything more In all my life. I've no intention of kept dan- _;ling. like your gilded boy friend. ! don't mean to play second, even :o your family. It's take me., or leave me. Now or never. The choice — and decision — is up to you —alone." Gaynel looked at him for a long moment Then she wrenched her eyes away. Strength flowed hack into her veins; her heart beat normally again. . "If .you really mean. that." she said, "there's no choice for me to make. You're the one who has decided. I can't go with you now. Fritz." . A tiny white line sprang around his lips; his blue eyes narrowed; his hands, behind him still, clenched. ' Then he bowed from his waist, in the old Armand manner; he even clicked his heels together, forced * grin. "Very well. Ma- dome, I hid you farewell. Good night and goodby. Good luck — ;and God bless you." And with those words, he was gone.
