This was what the song writers sang about the poets praised, what made the world go round. This giddy dizzy feeling, this pounding of the pulses, this breathless expectancy this ridiculous, yet altogether lightful madness. Gaynel was not quit* sure whether she liked it or not. She knew H bereft her completely of all reason and common sense. She knew she had never lived before that the world was an entirely different place. And that she would have to snap out of it one of these days and face facts. For facts, cold sober ones, were stored somewhere in back of this rosy daze. Not just yet. her heart whispered, let it last a little while, this beaulnul singing world. i« may never, never be K lovely quite again. She told herself th«t reality would drown and destroy >ll this sweep the mythical moon out o( the sky and land her, with a plunk back down on .earth. Sunday Fritz took her to BeBe Isle to make a day at H. Or a* Fntx said. To oelebrau. That's wfe»« this IB. my (ow. in case you're not awar» ot it. A celebration. I've got * new Job. You are now gazing upon the newly appointed promotion manager ot the Enterprise News Syndicate Congratulations are • order if you please." "On, FritzT Gaynel had to lit down upon th« nearest park bench. she wss so overcome by inch big news. Tm so glad, so terribly glad. Sh« was, of course; and yet crowding out thai gladness came the thought. It's come. The time to look reality in the face Does that mean you'll be going away?" "Not right oft." Fritz gave her a wide grin, as he sat down beside her on the bench. He took her hands in his, pulled her around so [hat she must look into his eyes, ^'You don't seem to be taking this the way you should. With somersaults and one war whoop, at least." 'I'll him them in a minute," she promised. But the way her heart behaved when he looked at her made other acrobatics impossible at the moment, "u kind of struck me in the middle. All of a sudden. The way you [eel when something hits you and you lose your breath." 'J KNOW. It did me the same trick. I almost got tight last night. In fact," his grin was rueful, "that's why this celebration being held here today. I spent my first week's salary In advance Today, my love, we dine on a couple of hamburgers. You don't mind?" Gaynet shook her head. How Rild she mind, aa long n h« was so near, his tweed sleeve brushing her own. his hair all rumpled and shiny in the sun, nil eyes to blue hat the *icy above looked faded n comparison? Yet sh« knew she should mind; that was ju*t U Part of those sober cold facts that would have to b< stared but at countenance. These an exceptional ham- lurgers, ot course," fritt said. "Just wait till you rink your teeth -n them!" H« crunched his own in inticiparion, wet his Irpa. "That's why Pw been dragging you for miles aU over thia Isle; to whip 'our appetite into shape. Boy!" H* stretched his le*s in front of him as far as they would reach. which was quite some distance' "It does feel good to be 'set' Suppose we postpone the feast and Just commune with nature awhile." for E, at tlie moment, was > black squirrel approaching them cautiously, yet with a hopeful gleam in its bright eye and In the flag-flung triumph of U, bushy tail. Fritz nudged her to sit slitl. He reached out a hand, clenched as [hough containing some hidden treasure; made a clucking sound with his tongue. The squirrel came toward them once more, a little pause between each eager advance; with a leap it landed neatly on Fritz's shoulder, to perch there a moment then dashed down his coat front, took • nibble at one button, poked an inquiring nose into his hand. 'Aren't you ashamed?" Gayne! asked, when the little creature alter giving them a reproachful look, had scurried away. "Not me.- Fritz returned inelegantly and shamelessly. "The little rogue probably already has full winter's store piKered away." 'Smart fellow," Gaynet said. "We should take a leasoo," she said. "Save up (or that rainy day. I U bet you haven't one nickel in a savings account young man. Or any Intention of ever putting i one there, which is worte. What will you do when winter comes?" That's an old one," Fritz stretched his legs a little further Havenl you heard? There's always spring, the wench, sneaking up, wagging her tali behind, like Mary's lamb. Now III ask yo« " He pointed an accusing ringer at her. "What would I do with a bank account? I'm not afraid of the rain. When are «• going V> be married. Gay?" Gaynel took a deep breath: then he plunge. "That's what 1 meant," *>e MJd, "about a bank account low can you talk so blithely of aking on the recponsibilities 64 a "mily without one? 1 don't quite * how we can get married, CT» Be C«nti»«e4) Say It . .
