"If you're trying to give me that answer I asked for, you needn't hurry. I don't want to rush you. Perhaps that was taking you too much [or granted. But I se« it differently now. I want you to take all the time you want to decide. I want you to be sure, is you said." "That's dear of you, Barry." She 'ished he weren't such a dear. He did not make it easier by being tike that "I told you I'd tell you as soon as 1 was sure. I am sure now, Barry. And I'm so terribly sorry I can't give you the answer I'd like to give — " He had not looked at her, or said a word; but she'had seen his [lands tighten oa the wheel, the knuckles white. "You'll wonder why I'm *o sure — now/' she seid. "I promised IM tell if ever, there was someone else. . . . Oh, I hate myself for having to tell you this. truly I do. I wouldn't tell you, Barry, it I weren't so sure." "That's aJl right," he said. And still without looking at her: "It's Freyman, isn't it?** "Yes." "I think Tv« known it all along. I toki you I felt some sort of change in you — after you met him. — I woke up—too late." "You mustn't say ihat. Or feel L- As \ tyld you, i don't believe ou love me—not in the way 1 love Pritz. why, Barry, it simply :urn< your whole world upside down! H makes you giddy—silly md so ridiculously happy you scarcely can bear it. You don't •eally fee! Ihat way about me." "Never mind that," Barry said. "Please." He looked at her now. He did not try to hide the hurt « his eye*. "It's * bit too soon for condolences. Right on top of a death sentence." "You mustn't take it like that. Barry." lie did care. In the way she felt about Fritz, But he would ?et over it. "I'm so fond of you, Barry; you're ao much a part of my life; I want you always to be that part. I owe so terribly much to you, more than I ever can repay in any way." mind that, either," Barry said; but nol so shortly. This had been a blow; but he would nol give up yet. He still had too much to offer her. It still seemed too right—and sure—that he and Gaynel belonged together; always had and always would. He could afford patience. "You don't owe me anything, Gaynel . . ." "Indeed. I do!" "Are you—and Freyman planning anything definite—in a hurry?" Barry's eyes were on the road again; but there was a good deal back of his light question. "Not hi any big hurry," Gaynel said. She felt as though a tremendous load had been lifted from her. Barry really had taken H very welL As she might have known he would. "Fritz wants me to tell the family. That won't be much fun." -She laughed. "I owe them so much, too. I can't just walk out. Fritz understands that. We . . . we're going to work it out somehow together." Yet saying this now to Barry it did not sounc very simple. That dreadfu. lotibl caught hoJd at her afafa; hose cold sober fact*. "Tint's good." He did not sound is though he thought it would be niplc, either. Barry knew Gay- family. P AYNEL said proudly, as though meeting a challenge, "Fritz has a grand new job. With a newspaper syndicate. He can take care of both of us nicely. Of course 1 wouldn't want him to take on my whole family—even if he could afford it." "Of course not," Barry said. "I don't believe he'd do it, either." Gaynel mused. "He'd think it wasn't his job. Fritz has all sorts of ideals; he's a svrioua person—and stubborn. Though you'd never gues« it, because he'i always clowning so. I wish," she turned appealing toward Barry'i set profile, "you knew him better. Barry. I hope you will." 'I hope so, too." Barry WM polite, nothing more. Barry swerved Ihe car, with « twist of lean wrists, out of the way of another that almost sideswiped them in trying to pass. "That was a narrow one." he said. 'You handled it beautifully." She had had a bad moment "But you will be friends?" 'Of course." Barry could handle other things as well as he could a car. His tone begged apology, as well as his eyes, "you must remember this isn't exactly—sim T pie—for me. But I don't count. All I want is for you to have what you want—your happiness. I know that sounds like the set speech for the losing rival, but it comes from the heart, Gaynel. You know that." "I know," Gaynel said. She put her hand over his on the wheel; a brief gesture of thanks, of sympathy and affection, that came Irom the heart, too. Barry said, "There's one thing more. If you ever should change your mind—Ml always feel the same; you'll always be the orx and only; you were mistaken about that. I told you Ihat even if there was someone els», I'd take that chance." Shg said, "I'll always.remember, Barry."
