Dwigh drew one up next to Charlotte "Have a drink," said Roger summoning the waiter. And when he'd given the order: "When did you decide to come to Paris?" "Just a day oc two back." "You were clever to track ui down here," smiled Charlotte "I guessed you'tl probably be i here or at the Cafe da la Pabe around drinking time." i She smiled at him. I "Any plans for this evening 1 Dwight?" | "None. Have you?" | "Not yet" i "Can I join up wilh you three? 1 ! "Sure. That'll be grand." said Charlotte. Patience felt a hand stray to .hers beneath the table. Roger murmured in her ear. "We'll have fun, you and I We I might possibly lose the others." "What's that?" asked Charlotte Roger grinned. "You'll know later." Dwight looked around for the (waiter. "Let's have »ome more drinks " Patience shook her head "I don't think I will, thank you " I don't think [ will either'" Mid Charlotte. "I'd like to be getting along to the hotel." They sauntered back together They talked over what they should oo that evening: "We could get seats for some show," suggested Dwight. "But it's Sunday," protested Patience. "That makes no difference in Par!*," said Roger. "Didn't you know, darling, that It's a wicked city?" "I believe the Polies Bergere is worth seeing," said Dwight "That's O. K. by me," said Charlotte. Roger hesitated. " Y °u take Charlotte there, Jwight, and I'll find somewhere else for Patience." "Why7" asked Patience. "1 don't think you'd like it " "Oh, gosh," said Charlotte, i forgot my little sister's careful upbringing." "Why wouldn't 1 like it?" asked Patience. Roger tucked her arm through his. 'It's not suilable for nice little girls like you." J)WIGHT said: "That arrangement suits ;ne all right. Actually I've got to see that show. That* one of the reasons I'm over here. There's a girl in H I'm Interested in." "Another one?" asked Charlotte. "Sure. I'm interested in lots of girl«. Didn't you know? They're my job." "You're awfulty commercial, aren't you?" His expression changed w h« looked at her. "Not always." Patience saw Charlotte's color nse. She thought: - "What is gong on between those two?" And 'elt certain there was something. Something, too, that Ro^er didn't very much like. He said now, a trifle irritably: Well, what are we going to do his evening? We'd better make up our minds about it." "Let's dine together anyway" id Charlotte. "And if we go on o different shows we'll meet up aler for supper." It wasn't a successful dinner >arty. Patience knew she'd be hankful when It was over. True, he food was excellent, also the wine, and for her at least it. was exciting just to b* sitting In a mart Parisian restaurant. But he other three seemed singularly 11-tempered. There'd be spasms f conversation and then strained ilcnces. Till at last Dwight called or the bill. i 'Where sha> we me* asked. "Somewhere In Montmartr* I suggest," said Charlotle- "Some place where we can dance." "Lcl'j make no plans." said Roger. "We'll probably bump Into each other." Charlotte looked at him "Is that what you'd really pr»for? "Yes." Dwight grinned at her. "We don't want to thrust ourselves on them, do we?" «u?*,'J" nc * lnid desperately: Wouldn't it be nicer for ua aU to be to£elher?" ]yo one seemed to agree with her. And soon Hoger and she were in a taxi takin s them to the ballet. "D'you like ballet, Patlenc.r "I've never yet been to any." "I've an idea yoti will." He wai right, o< eours*. She found H enchanting. She sat ip«l)- bound, her hand in his, listening enthralled to the lovely musk, watching the exquisite dancing, the color, the letting*. She listened to the thunderous applause that came when at last U was over, too moved to clap herself, too deeply stirred even for words. "Com« out of jour trance," «M Roger gently. She turned dazed ey«« to look a< him. "Roger—thank you for bringing me. I can't begin to tell you how much I've enjoyed it I'd no idea anything could b« w wonderful " She rose .lowly to her Je*t Roger helped her Into her long velvet coat, his handi lingering on her shoulder*. She followed tlie people out from their rows of seats, and remembered that other occasion when together they'd left » theater. Then there'd been Paul. aul standing some distance away from her turning to look M her with that cold hard stare which mode her think he'd completely finished with her.
