When he'd first looked up from hii seat in the stalls and seen her there In the box above him he'd told himself he must be dreaming. And then that It wasn't of course Patience at all. It wai someone very much like her. But she'd turned her head at (hat moment to jpeak to Roger Diekson jwho was with her. She'd made a quick little movement with her [hands. i Oh ye», it was Patience all right. He knew those little gestures. Only it was a Patience he'd never seen ^ before. A Patience who was quite 'lovely. True that time he'd seen her on the train she'd seemed transformed by her new clothes. But tonight in that clinging chiffon dress, with her hair done in that new way— why, tonight she was ravishing! And what the devil was she doing with a fellow like Roger Dickson? How in the name of fortune did she meet him? Suddenly it struck him that tt must have been Dickson she'd been with that day at the station The day that man and the gir had seen her of! at the train. He'c not recognized him then. He'd probnbiy not have recognized him tonight had not the people he was with pointed him out. He wasn I up on stage celebritiej. They had gone out through ttie pas« door. Paul wondered if they were attending the par»y he'd heard a little group of people In the bar discuss during the interval. Jt was taking place on thi atage alter the show. He wished to heaven lie Jcncw omcone in the company ao that ic could cadge an invitation. He'd ather • like to confront Patience nd ask her what the dlckeni ahe thought she wai doing. A thought occurred to him. He might gate-crash. Of course, tt would b« extremely embarrassing f he didn't bring II of}. H someone came up to him and asked hit name and Inquired from whom he'd received an invitation. But it a gathering like that, was this n the least likely to happen? He'd been to stage parties before. There was always such a crowd and Invariably fa many people handed out haphazard Invitations thai no one knew who was supposed be there. 'THE more ht thought about It the better the idea seemed to ilm. Funny, when he had first seen Patience sitting In that stage box he'd not wanted even to speak to her. He'd felt so darned angry that he'd told himself he never wanted to have anything more to do with her. But now he felt he'i got to see her and have thing out. . He begged off joining the people he was with for a late lupper and went around to the stage door A crowd was collected outside 11 Autograph hunters and galler: first-nighters waiting to see the! idols leave. Only tonight the wouldn't be leaving for quite while. Tonight there was a larg party. Great numbers of peopl were streaming in. With a muttered apology, Pau pushed past a little group stand ing directly in the doorway an< walked briskly down a long ston corridor. At the far end he coul see a wide entrance giving onU the stage. An enormous number of peopl were gathered. Voices were raise i high excited chatter. There WH le sound of music and laughter. le hesitated and then walked igfil oliead. hoping thai no or* ;ould ask him any awkward quei- ons. H« stood on the fringe at men arid women looking around Im. He recognized various celeb- ilics. The world ind hit wife oemed to be here thl« ei'enln*. t was an astonishing place in which to be tracking down Faience. • • • 'UDDENLY he saw her. She wai standing some distance off, ob- iously looking for somebody, loger Dickson, h« supposed an- rlly. .The sight of her standing then, so utterly different from the faience he knew and loved, filled ilm with a burning anger. He wanted to snatch her away from nil these people, To say this wasn't he sort of place for her She didn't belong here amongst this tagc crowd. She belonged to the country. To the quiet peace ot green fields and little woods. This was quite the wrong setting for her. Or was h« perhaps mistaken? Secause she was looking at him coolly and seemed really very much In her element. Ai If a nuge party like this was something to which she was quite accustomed. And now she was coming toward lim. He smiled uncertainly. "Excuse me," she said and would have pushed past him tor all the world DS if she didn't know him, but he barred her way. "Are you cutting mi bjr any chance?" "I beg your pardon." "I suppose you're looking for Roger Dickson?" She stared at him, an odd expression on her face. "Well, yes, I am." "Can't you do without him for a moment?" Her eyes flashed angrily. "What i* aU this?" she d»- manded. . "You wouldn't know, of course. You'll be trying to pretend you don't know me next." "Well, I don't, do I?"
