That's my story and I'm going to stick to it. And if Jenny doesn't like • it, you can cheer her up." Between the two of them they got him to bed, and as he drowsed oft he was still muttering about Rick being the one to 'love her and take care of her." w l don't know what to say, ftick," Jenny whispered as they cleared off the table later. Rick looked at her gravely. "You don't have to say anything." "I don't think Tod's happy!" The words tumbled over one another in her eagerness to make excuses. "He doesn't care too much for his job, and we're in debt, nls mother's sick, and — well, things keep piling up. But I'm sure everything will be straightened out." "Of course, Jenny." Jenny's eyes feU away from his. She twisted a paper napkin into a oall in her palm. "I'm especially ashamed of Tod (or saying the things he did. He'll be ashamed too, tomorrow." There was a queer look on Rick's (ace as he stared at- her for an instant, as though he were about to say something. He didn't speak, but Jenny knew all at once that Tod was right. and Nina hEd been right Jenny hcrsejf had been Incredibly stupid and blind. Kick was in love with her! Tod wnkcnccl the next morninj; bewildered and conlrilc. She was pouring his collee when he came out all shaved and ready lo go lo Ihe oflice. "1 hope I wasn't loo obnoxious last night, Jenny." "You weren't." She tried to smile. "I remember saying something about—" i ^'Forget it," Jenny said. "All of it." She poured her o^vn cofTee and set the pot back on the stove. "1 can't remember much what happened after 1 lefl the party " "Party?" She dropped her spoon m the saucer It made a loud clatter in the stillness. He gulped his coffee down and then looked at her "You'll prob'- ably find out sooner or later anyway, so 1 might as well tell you. 1 went to a cocktail party al the Conover Agency. It was a special shindig tor a client. A big shot." JENNY felt a little numb. Or maybe she hadn't wakened up enough yet to grasp what he was saying. He stood up and reached for his hat. from the top of the icebox where someone had put it the nicht before. "We had quite a time. There were even reporters there and photographers. That's why I thought I might as well tell you. 'nicy might sort of play me up a little on account of my football career." He flushed as he gave her a quick goodby pnck on the cheek. "You mean you wouldn't have told me, except that I'd probably see the pictures and read about it in the paper?" "Why of—ot course I'd have told you." He turned his hat over m his hands. "Why should 1 try to hide anything. Alter all, Liz inviled you too." "Oh—Liz.? There was a long frigid pause. "1 knew you t:uumirt go on account of the kids, and—" '~Jo on You knew I didn'l have Ihe propei clothes either, thai u 1 vvenl you'd be ashamed of me." "Jenny, for Heaven's sake, don't be so dramatic. If I'd have thought you cared about going we could have gol a siller and managed a new dress.'\ She stood unmoving listening [ O the slam of the from door afler him. and then his footsteps going UP the stairs One of the babies wakened and began lo cry. She moved toward the sound automatically. So Liz had asked Tod to the Party, and he had gone, without telling her anything about it at Tod phoned at 2 o'clock his voice strained. "Jenny. I'm darned sorry about last night, and about the things I said this morning too " E been on my mind all day." "hen she didn't say anything because she couldn't, he went on Jenny, are you there? Did yoii near what I said?" "Yes." "And listen, I'll be home early because I've got grenl news." * • • CHE was still apathetic after Tod had told her his "great news." But Jcuny. you don't seem at all excited. Think what it will incnn." "I am thinking." He took hold of her shoulders ind gave her a little shake. "If you're worried about me getting mixed up with Liz, lust because I in going into the Conover firm you're being silly. Why, this is th_e chanre of a lifetime!" "We'll look for a house to buy, a suburban, where the kids can have plenty of fresh air arid sun And well buy a car. Gosh, won't it be swell lo have a car again! Gee whiz. Jenny, you know when Conover called me over there this afternoon and made me Ihis proposition, the first thing I thought was. "Now Jenny and I and the kids can really begin to live—like other people! No more basements and skimping I can pay up that nursing home and gel Ma back irito a decent place."
