Topped with pickle relish and onion. Gaynel liked onions, but they did not like her. Nevertheless she took such > huge bile thai she choked, so that Fritz had to thump her on the back and summon the proprietor for a glass ot water. "This is her first square meal in three weeks," he explained gravely to the fat proprietor. "You see. we have been trying to live OD love. That's why the lady tried to make a meal out ol one bite. Did you ever try living on love? Say. before you . . . er . : . acquired your present ... er ... position. Joe?" "Stantislos," the proprietor corrected, his gravity matching Fritz's. "Sure, I - Uf on [off once. When I first comes to dis country, wid Marie and our Bve little ones, also wid us. Lett," gravity rose now to such heights supreme that all the chins shook in added emphasis, "it is de greatest ting in de whole world. loB is. Ain't it so, yes? In de whole world der is nothings like lofl. no?" "No Yes," Fritz said, shaking his one chin decorously He turned on Gaynel, perched on the high stool next to him; his griD was triumphant. "You see!" ne crowed. "Think of iL Love fed five—no, seven hungry mouths, lust like that! Now will you stop looking for trouble, my sweet? Put your trust in me and (he Statue of Liberty." "You are very much obliged, yes. You like, maybe, another slice of onion?" Gaynel ajmost choked once more ns he went on. "Onion and the garlic, she keep our five little ones fat and healthy like me." "I'll have another slice, Mr. Stand-in-louse," Fritz said. "Stantislos." The second correction came with greater dignity. "Onion, she keps the germs away." "Not for me!" Gaynel broke in hastily. "Here he is!" Mr. Stantislos presented the onion on the tip of a long knife. "Helps yourself. And thank you. Comes again." "Thank you." Fritz said, helping himself generously. "We'll come again, all right. When we have our five little ones we'll bring them along." • • • "W/HAT a man you are," said Gaynel, after they were seated on a bench once more, her head on his shoulder because now it was dark, and there were no rubber-necks, animals or people, and the night 'air was so soft and sweet and she wished this could last forever. "I Knew you were a perfectly outrageous young man the minute 1 laid eyes on you," she said. Then sighed, "I guess that's why I love you." He said, "That's a good enough reason. But you're the outrageous one, really Talking nonsense about not seeing now we ^an- get married, saying you'U leave me if 1 gnin any weight, putting me oft whenever 1 try to pin you down." His arm tightened around her; he drew her closer to him; his lips brushed the waves of her hair. She said. "You're forgetting we decided there were certain matters we'd have to work out first." "Why not get married ftrst, then work em out afterwards?" "You sound as though you'r* afraid you'd lose m« if we wait awhile!" "You're darn lootin 1 I'm afraid! I told you that you're the only thing I am afraid of, my love. Your mother might persuade you to takt Barry on, after' »li. So that the family could go on eating their cake and keeping it, too." "You might marry Bessie." Gaynel said. "She's after you, my lad." She did not want to face those other facts just now: that she must tell the family and Barry about Fritz. "Bessie? Why, I didn't even remember who she was the first time she rang me up." So, Bessie had dono the pursuing, then! "Not that I don't admire her gold freckles," Fritz added, with Kii grin. "In fact. red-Heads are one of my few weaknesses. If you don't snap me up quick. Bessie might get me on the rebound." "Over my dead body," Gaynel said- a a • 'J'HF.Y did not talfc^ for awhile, ft was enough just to be together, so close, with only the harvest moon, solemn and round and golden, for company. "The thing for you to do," Fritz said finally, "is to have it out wilh your family. Tell them they'll have to come down to earth, give up the cake, balance the budget. You admit they could get along without your help if thej would. ! Couldn't they, for example, give up that 24-room shack and move into closer quarters? Can't you brother buckle down to taking job seriously? Even Pat. it seenu to me. should be trained for something definite so that in time sh can contribute tier share. You'v had it all for five long years. Tim to shuffle the cards. I'd say. It' been done before. Why not bring it home. Gorgeous?" "It's a big order." "You're big enough. IJ I could > do it for you. if there is any way I can help, you know 1 will," "It's my problem. I'll do it, of course." Gaynel said. She had told herself that this one decision must be hers alone. She nad mad* it Now she must abide by it.
