Do you?" Laurie shook her head. "It was because you were still afraid, subconsciously, that maybe your mother was right, maybe Steve was right. You've always had that lear inside ot you somewhere, that you'd make a terrible mistake when you married. Even Steve sensed it." "Oh, Mark, I love Steve." "The fear is all gone now, (isn't it?"

His voice lifted at the end of her name, "What in the world are you doing here?" "I came to see you off, darling. You see," she tipped her head and smiled at bim, "I didn't have a chance to talk to you at all. You rushed off in such a terrible hurry after Fletcher and I came." He looked away from her for a moment. After a while he said, "There wasn't a great deal to say, was there?"
