XXXIV QAYNEL wished she had not added ; thal last ]lbe. Frilz might Ihiiik she cared. When instead, she told hersel/ fiercely, she despised him. Let Bessie have him! She was welcome. To Ihink sKe had spent all this time mooning over such a person, losing weight jnd sleep, turning against her whole rainilj', nursing a heart she had thought was broken, hoping against hope that it could be mended. . Driving home with Barry—the others had piled into the other car —warm and tired to the stage of snug relaxation, 'Gaynel 1 spoke suddenly, breaking a long silence. "Barry, do you still want to take that chance you spoke o( .once?" Barry slackened the speed, _ though, he had not been driving fast. 'He glanced at her. "Of course." He did not say any more. It was as though he. wanted her to be sure of what she was saying. "Remember what I said, Barry? That your requisites were so tempting 1 might break down because of them.": : "1 remember." She said, "Then—If you still want me—the way things are— and knowing I'm terribly lond of you, Barry—I'll try to be everything you want me to be, Into the bargain—and give -you the answer you said you wanted." .. He did nbt-:give.:her. any^answer,; she was afraid for a moment he was not going to. But instead.he slowed down even more, pulled to the side of the road, slopped the car. ' She told herself, with Barry's kisses on her lips—they were not now brief nor brotherly—and as she clung to him, thai never again —from this moment—would she think pi Fritz, or his kisses. She would live up to the promise she had just given Barry. Nevertheless, the beautiful silvery night had an iche in JL • • • ' \. T>ACK home again, Barry said he did not want to hurry Qaynel, but hadn't, she better decide on k definite date for the wedding? Gaynel thought a June wedding would be nice, but Barry thought June too far away, so she compromised on May. Much to Gaynel's surprise, Emily did not seem anxious to announce the engagement and she said planning a big wedding was too much for her. with her heart and her poor, poor nerves. "And' think of the expense!" Emily added. . That was a switch. Emily considering the expense, telling Gaynel to consider it. The conversation was taking place over the breakfast table in the seldom used breakfast nook. "I had forgotten this breakfast nook was so cheerful," Emily was saying now. "I do enjoy it It's only a beginning of my plans for the Simple Lite." . "The Simple Life?" Wa« the next interim sprouting its flrjl tiny leaves? "Yes, dear," Emily helped herself to more scrambled eggs. "You should know. It was your young man — Frederick, isn't It clever of me to remember his name? He told ;us about t .il and I've been'.thinking ever since how terribly interesting it could be." • "But Mother." Gaynel interrupted, ^"you^iorget ,that Fritz"— how odd she felt just at the mention of his. name—"is "no longer my young man. I Just told you I am going to marry Barry. The first of May. I supposed that was what you wanted, too." She could not help » tinge o( bitterness in this last. "I supposed you and your young man—Fritz?—had had a lovers' quarrel," Emily said: She threw her daughter an arch glance, shook a painful finger. " 'Tht course of true love,' you know, darling. You must remember that. Why. the night before your poor dear father and I were to be married poor dear Wilbert and 1 bad a terrible quarrel. He said something rude thai 1 thought I'd never be able to forgive him for, though of course 1 did! If 1 had it all to go through, again, I'd marry him again tomorrow." '*! am sure you would," Gaynel said. • "You know, darling," her mother said, "you told me you die! not love Barry enough to marry him. You told me .you loved this odd young man. though I'm sure as he said, he'd not seem so odd as one gat to know him, and in spile of the way he -talked to me that dreadful night, I was quite laken with.him, really. And your mother would never want you, her own little girl, -to marry anyone—no matter how fond of him, or how much he could give her—unless she was sure he was the fnan she always would love! Marriage ii much too serious, and sacred tor that." « • '• ' DAT slid into her chair just then. "I earned my 8rst live bucks yesterday afternoon." she said. "Saw an ad in the morning paper, went down and landed the job." "Job?" Emily and Gayne) both gasped. ' .'. . Pal was enjoying the effect she had created, but she took her last swallow of chocolate, pushed back her chair. "Us possibilities are unlimiled, practically." This was a quote from the man who had interviewed her. "No telling where it may lead, or how much money I'J! make. The photographer sa:d I'm a natural— : the ad was for a: model for commercial photo-' graphic display." -Gosh! she wai getting good! Those were Ihe ex-, acl words she had clipped. "A model!" Emily said. The pained expression crept into her prelty blue eyes. "If it's part-time work," Gaynel began. But Pal threw them each a kiss, a laugh thai lingered after her, and dashed on her way before there 'could be any denouncement of her plans. .
