Ann and Colin were sitting in front of the fireplace, smoking clarets and going-, through the mail. Ann opened 'Colift's' bank statement, and .inquired, "Want me to check this for you, Colin? ATler all. I used to do bookkeeping." j"If you don't mind. I've always iiatcd that job." • i ;Ann ran through the checks quickly, separating those written in Cblin's small neat hand from her own, covered with large, sjjra'.vly writing. As she was arranging his according to the numbers on the ^cnecks, one tor $500 payable to' Millicent Roberts caught her eye. ."Who is Millicent Bcbevts?" she inquired idly. {Colin put down the paper, and Idoked acrosj at her. "She was nly wife.'' V'Oh." •Funny to encounter her tha Tjay, on tddceled check. Funny i^e never had known her name before: Then she-asked, "Is thi "/%H, Colin, you spoil your women horribly! I don't mind your paying her this— though it docs seem rather a lot —but it's so bad for women to be treated like that!" "Any complaints, Mrs. Drake?" Colin asked casually, coining over to put his arm around her. "My dear—" She stopped in her tirade to kiss him, then went on, still a bit angrily, "Why did she divorce you, Colin?" "Gross cruelty was the cliargc, I believe." He was very nonchalant about it, but looked as if he would like lo drop thc subject. Ann, however, persisted. "Cruel? You, Colin? How absurd! I mean -you're probably the kindest man who ever lived. How were •ou cruel to her? Forgive me if 'm being tiresome, but I'd really ike lo know—" "Vou'd bettor run info Seattle iinti sec what you can find," Colin sugg-jstcd. "I've arranged for you lo charge anything you buy at Frederick's and Best's and Magnin's— if you want to buy anything anywhere else, you always can v.Tilc a check." "Trying lo get rid of me," Ann said sadly. "You've always gone with me to Seattle before. Do you think you can trust me to pick out my own clothes?" "Darling, I'd trust you to do anything in the world. And I hav* to write a book." "You have every, right to. My cruelty— my current cruelty— consisted in not being willing to drop the book I was working on and take her to Uuropc when the mood suddenly seized her. Some six months earlier she had refused to accompany me when 1 went lo England to finish Ihe research on Bruce. Oh well, I didn't fight it. I was as ready for a divorce a . ^Something else struck Ann then Md she asked, "Did she get he njaiden name back?"

"But, C^in*£;*fVm4rri«d |C>in, you : aren't still paying h«r alimony, «»e you? I mean—" "TTes, in> dear, 111 go ori paying ttfr tSM a month »o lone *» ""* t*th iUU llv«; fUtber careless of - she. But promise me, Ann — i[ you ever get a yen to go any place- to Tibet or the Congo or maybe the Isle of Man— you'll tell me, won't you?" ANN stopped at Connie's house on her way in to Seattle, but Connie was giving a luncheon and couldn't accompany her on her shopping tour. "Do you s'pose I'd dare leave my guests to shift for themselves?" she asked, then wistfully decided she couldn't. So Ann continued into town alone, and with her usual quickness in decisions involving clothes, bought a d;*.*5 ot coral crepe and a small brown hat that swept off her forehead and gave her a wide-eyed and ingenuous look, in something less than 45 minutes. She was leaving the store, and considering whcru she would go for lunch, when she bumped into Jock. Quite literally — she hadn't been looking where she was going, and ran straight into his arms. It was half a minute before he recognized her, and she had to blink a lime or two herself. Then they laughed, and he took her arm and steered her lo the edge of the Insure j Now . . . I through W. J.

"Dear heart," Colin said suddenly, "do you realize that you have practically no winter clothes?" "I have a fur coat," Ann responded promptly. She hadn't worn it yet, that rich and lovely thing that had been Colin's wedding gift » her. She realized then that she actually didn't have any clothes that v.-i>!ild be appropriate under a mink coat. sidewalk. What hick, Ann! It's been years. How ore you, darling?

She was wearing brown suede pumps with four- inch heels—it was all right for her lo wear high heels when Colin wasn't with her—and still she had lo look up to him. All these thoughts ran through her mind, before she said, in a voice that was curiously breathless, "Of course I'll have lunch with you. It's so nice to see you, Jock—it's been a long time."
