Patience paced the platform, wondering It the train would be much longer Her heart leaped when at lasi it was signaled. This wasn't a day when she usually went to London. But she was going up Especially to be with Charlotte. Charlotte had arranged it with Aunt Helen before she herself had gone back to London. Patience jumped into the first carnage as the train stopped at the platform. She told herself that she wasn't going even to notice whether Paul stepped from one ol the compartments when they eventually reached Liverpool Street Station. Instead she would think of Charlotte. Of the good time they were going to have together. She saw her the moment the tram came to a stop and flung herself out of the carriage. She raced towards her, "Charlotte, it's so lovely to be here! I feel so terribly exciied!" Charlotte smilec< at her fondly Gosh, she thought, fancy gettin" such a kick out ol spending a lew hours with one's sister in London! "What shall we do first?" she home the $800 minus the $5 bills he have to ench helper. asked, as they/walked away from the barrier. "1 don't mind. Anylhhig you Charlotte hesilalccl. She wanted to dress Patience over A round of Hie shops might be a good idea. On the other hand they c-ould return to her hotel and have a round of tier own wardrobe! • » • PATIENCE drew , eas|)1 ,, g breath as some little while later she passed thiough the swinging doors mio the luxurious foyer of the Maylair "D'you mean to say you're staying here. CliatloUc?" "Why. yes." "Isn'l It terribly expensive?" "It is fairly. But it's comlort- able. And I'm maXing quite a lot of money." She strolled over to the reception desk to ask if there were any messages. "Mr. Dickson telephoned. Miss Carlotta. He'll be picking yon up here at twelve-thirtj." "Thank you." "Carlotta?" asked Patience. "That's my singe name. It sounds more effective than Charlotte Mor.d." "Sort of like Garbo?" "Well. yes. I suppose so. Look, there's a lift wailing." "Who's Mr. Dickson?" Patience inquired as together they walked down the long corridor to Charlotte's room. "Roger Dickson. Darling, don't tell me you've never heard of him." Patience shook her head. "I don't think so." Charlotte gave a delighted little laugh. "That'll be good [or him. Von must u'l him when you -;ee him." "Am I seeing him?" "Yes. He's taking us out to Junch." Patience felt a slight pang. She'd been hoping that Charlotte »nd she would have lunch alone "Is he a very special friend at »ns. Charlotte?" Charlotte hesitated. "Not quite so special as he'd Ilk* to Lie."

"Oli ves.'Roger's quite the answer to a maiden's pra.vei And he has more charm than it good for any woman." pATlENCE smiled and put the oicliire bnck again. No, she wasn't goins to think of Paul. Ol Pan] who had more charm thnn was good tor her certainty. And now Charlotte was opening the long built-in cupboards. Hunnin« a hand along the many drerses. "Com nud ehoose something you'd like." "Charlotte, you don't mean that?" "Ol course I do." Patience tried on firsl one and then another. She stood before Hie Ions mirror and wondered it she were dreaming. "Charlotte, that's not ma. It can't be." r She wished Paul could see her She wished this more than any- tli'ns In the world. The dizzy blonde would stand no chance beside her. She wouldn't have believed that clothes could make 30 much difference. Clothes. • new hair-style, and the right make-up She was wearing now a gray dress with scarlet embroidery. She was wearing a mile scarlet hai that sat crazily over one eye, and carrying a scarlet handbag. She was looking now exactly like Charlotte, and yet there was a subtle difference. Charlotte eyed her thoughtfully wondering what it could be. "Me and yet not me!" She Inughed. "Me without a past 1 suppos*. Well, darling, there's one thing I beg of you."
