Take it easy." "My idea was to get in the car and just start out. See what we can find. I'm not sure we can dc it, of course. After a certain age you don't see much you aren't ready to see. We can't tell until we try. But there are things going on somewhere." "What kind of things?" Greg asked with native caution. "I don't kncfw." For a moment Daggett sounded forlorn, a very neat, plump old man, helpless in his chair, with a big vibrant voice. He ran the fingers of his good hand over the chair arm and then they gripped it hard. "You see, it's not much of a job. You'd have to be a chauffeur, attendant, and listen to the old man talk. I don't need a lot of waiting on, but some. I don't ' know—well, there it is. Eighty a week and expenses. I don't suppose it would appeal to you. Don't hesitate to say so." Greg looked at it through his stepfather's eyes: an end to his job with Grain's Canned Cornbread and the hope of being vice president and eventually put out to pasturs on a pension. A chauffeur. An attendant on a sick old man. He looked at it through his own eyes, which was more difficult to cio He was so accustomed to seeing what people pointed out to him th* tu did not know few a picture really looked. Perhaps it was time he found out. "Have you planned an itinerary," he asked, "or shall we just follow our noses?" His conscience gave an outraged yelp and abandoned him. Daggett hitched himself up straighter in his chair, A smile tugged at his twisted mouth. "There's a place 1 own in the West. 1 was born there. Lately I've been thinking of it a lot. A rugged sort of place, not much like this." His good hand indicated the impersonal living room "In a way it died before it ever got off to a good start. And yet, looking back, it seems to me it had a sort of—for a dead place I'll wager good money it's still more-alive than those graphs of yours." i Greg realized that he was afraid to go back, afraid to measure, the bright memories against ity. i rould keep it in mind," j the younger man suggested in a ; casual tone. • * * VO days after Greg handed in his resignation, the office seethed with rumors. Gregory Seaver had had a better offer; he had been left an independent income; he was going to marry a rich woman. Eventually, the rumors trickled back to him, but he told no one the truth. Now and then he had a moment's foreboding when he real-. ized that he was deliberately cutting himself off from the only way of life he knew, but luckily he had no leisure in which to concern himself with what he ought to have done. There were a lot of arrangements to be made and they all fell on him. Already he was on Daggett's payroll and he had been given a month's salary In advance. "I always pay (n advance," ii^jCtt 1 assured him whrn he protested. "Ask that flat-footed Qi flMTCT. A AM Wife * tricky heart can't afford to rely on paying his bills when they fall due." Each afternoon, as soon as he left the office, Greg plunged into activities that proved to be unexpectedly fascinating. As a result, the hours that he spent on his job were as much of an anticlimax as the wordless farewells which one waves from a train window after everything has been said. Now the end was in sight he marveled that he had stuck it out so long. • * * pVEN so, he had to become ac- lj customed to liberty little by little. He wore so many invisible shackles imposed by his dominating stepfather, his mother, his tiresome conscience, his lack of faith in himself, his distrust of any novelty, that he approached the unknown as cautiously as a lame man does an icy sidewalk. He had toyed with the idea of a last-minute telephone call to hie mother or even a letter after he was gone. Instead, he made his confession face to face, which was the hard way. He went to Montclair, brushed and neat, wearing the dinner jacket on which his mother insisted. He was glad there were no guests. "I've resigned at the office," he blurted out in one long breath to his mother and his stepfather. "But, Greg darling," Millicent Grain protested. At 45 Millicent was something of a miracle. She was more nearly beautiful than she had been at 30 and she did not look much older. Her hair, with a little assistance, was still dark, her wide brown eyes were appealing, her nose small, her mouth full, her shoulders creamy in a strapless crimson velvet dinner dress. Her manner was a shade more girlish than It had been 10 years before. Behind the voice, which was plaintive and youthful, she was saying silently, "How could you do this to me?" "Why?" Horace Grain asked. "Because I didn't like it." ."Why didn't you discuss it with me first?" "My mind was rr.ndc up Thore wasn't anything to say, really."
