The theater and workshop no longer resounded with hammering and rehearsals. ' Gnynel reminded herself that when she had put her foot down firmly enough! in previous matters, she had won out. Why shouldn't she win. too, then, when -she told her family she was soing to marry rVitz? An entire evening . spwit' in struggling to straighten last month's household accounts put her in exactly the right— or wrong — frame of mind when Emily discovered her in a little writing room off the living room. Emily swooped down on Gaynel with her little gestures and smilej, "I've had the loveliest time!" "L too, have something to tell you. Mother. I an going to b* married." "Married! Oh, my darling! How lovelyj" Emily rushed over to throw her arms around her daughter, lo kiss her on each cheek. My precious darling. Mother's little girl. Of course it makes me very sad. Yet very happy. I've looked forward 30 long to this day which I've known would come I ve always felt »s though Barry. the dear, sweet boy, were the same as my own son." Gaynel said quietly, "But I'm not going to marry Barry, Mother. ''Not going to ... Bu|, darling, who else could you marry? Surely he's asked you? But of course he has. Of course you're going to marry Barry, darling. You know it means so much to me." "Whom I marry means something to me. too," Gayncl said. 'It's the one thing I must decide myself. I am fond of Barry. But not in love with him. He asked me to marry him. But I happen to love someone else." • • • "gOMEONE else?." Emily looked bewildered. "But how could you love someone else, dear, when Barry', „, IW e«t, so entirely suitable, when he could do so much for you—Tor all of us?" "I'm sure Father would want me to marry the man of my choice." Emily ignored Gaynel's remark. "You must talk this over with your brother." 'Oh, I'll talk h over with him." Gaynel readily could promise lhat. "Denny will have to take on his share of responsibility,- contribute part of his earnings." "Denny . . . contribute!" Such possibility ' practically robbed Denny's mother of speech. "He can give up his expensive habits." Emily went on: "It seems to me, darling, you ought to think about us—your family. Your mother and brother and dear little PaL Think of ill Barry did lor her ... the sweet child's very life, besides all the money he must have spent." Pat appeared at the door. She had heard her name mentioned, "Come in, dear." Emily held out a hand. "This concerns us all . . ." "Plea»e, Mother!" "Pat it grown-up enough. She should know, Gaynel, that you aren't going to marry Barry." "You aren't!" Pat stared at her rter out of round, wide eyes Now h«r lace broke into a radiant smile. "Gee, I'm glad." "Glad!" from Emily. "You're (he only one," Gayne: said, "Because," Pat stilled solemnly, "then I can marry him as soon as I'm old enough." QAYNRL laughed. She might have known she could depend upon her little sister.' "So you can," she said. "But, honey, suppose you run along now-" "1 suppose," Emily said, "I'll have to give up dear Clipper. When he's so attached to me." "Vou won't have to give up the dog." Poor Emily really had bad enough. "There will be plenty of time to make all the necessarr arrangements." "Time?" Emily said. She took a large dose of the smelling salts. "Time, did you say, darling? You mean, you're not going to marry anyone right away? All of these terrible things don't have to happen at once? You're not going to leave your poor mother, and Denny and Pat right away, then, darling?" "Certainly not," Gaynel reassured her. "You talk, dearest, as though I were going to die, when instead I'm going to marry the man I love. And oh, Mother, i do love Fritz so much!" "Frit/.!" her mother repeated. She let her salts fall to the floor. "You don't mean, you can't mean . . . not that strange young man, tti* one whose name I never can remember! A nobody, without • penny. ... Oh, my dear!" Gaynel stood Up; her face was white, but she looked very proud. "I couldn't mean anyone else. Mother. Fritz isn't a nobody, or a stranger. He's gotten a very food job. Though all lhat matters is that I love him, and h« loves me." "My poor, poor nerves," Emily sighed. She recognized that set look on her daughter's mouth. 'To think you'd do this—if you knew the hopes Pve had for you. But, as you say, there'll be plenty of time." A tiny candle, like a flam* of hope, lighted in her pretty ey»s. so that now she could even give Gaynel a smile. (T.
