Good hands, large with calloused palms. Not like the rmnds of Tay Haydn. She thought of Taj's slender, aristocratic hands, of her lather's long, well- shaped fingers. Probably this man worked with his hands. Suddenly she realized she had never known a man who worked, really worked. She regarded Tom curiously. Although he seemed ill at ease, he remained until they rose to go. He knocked over his chair as he pushed back from the table. He followed right at their heels when they left the store and stood outside for a little while, big and blundering and seJf-conscious but reluctant to'leave them. The girls in their brief white play suits with bare, tanned arms and legs. The soldier in his uniform. Mary Belle giggling and amused and Jessica sobar and uneasy as they finally said goodby and went toward- Mary Belle's roadster. As they climbed into th« car and set oil, Mary Belle said suddenly, "He looks dangerous. .You know, I'd just as soon flirt with a baby lion." Jessica made BO reply ,ko this. She wouldn't see the man again 1 if she could avoid !.im. She would think about Tay, she decided, and chattered on lo Mary Belle about her visit to her roommate, the handsome brother just out of Annapolis, the tobacco plantations h« would inherit, his lovely home and his family. "Going to marry him?" asked Mary Belle direttly. "Not until he asks me. Tay isn't interested in »'war bride." Yet he had been clever enough (o imply that h« intended to make marriage his first postwar project. It would be so right to marry Tay. She forced her thoughts to center about him after she had left Mary Belle, and denied that the worship of thij awkward Northern soldier intrigued her. Tay would fit perfectly into her pattern of life. He would be so acceptable to her father, that very elegant, reserved gentleman who indulged her every whim. I'm a terrific snob, Jessica confessed to herself a E she went up the box-bordered walk which led to the old rose brick house Which had sheltered Gordons for genera- lions. I like my background, ihe thought proudly, as she stepped into the cool, dark hall with its gleaming polished floors and heavy old mahogany furniture. I'd b« los( in any other environment. • • • Qf cours* sh« would not meet the blond soldier boy again. But she did, »nd not when Mary Belle was present. When he appeared suddenly beside her downtown one day, she found herself unable to snub him properly. Other meetings followed, planned meetings. And then Tom told her he loved her. He was humble, he made no attempt to touch her. He was terribly hurt when sh« told him curtlj that she did not care for him and i* would be best for both of them not to meet again. He accepted her decision. That surprised her. For a week she saw . The weeks passed. No Tom. Had he gone »wnj without telling her? She wanted lo »« him jus* onc« mort »nd tell him that she was sorry s)i had hurt him. She must SM? him, sh« decided finally. She took the car ind drove out toward the mmp and met Tom walking doggedly »k>ng » milt firom town. ' Jessica drew up at the sld« ol the road and hailed him. "Hi, want a lift?" He ihook nil head and plodded on. "Tom, stop!" He paused, turned Mround »nd waited. "I want to talk to you," jh« stammered. "Pleas* get in." He hesitated. Then h« strode back and climbed in beside her. "Let's drive up into U\e hills," she sflld. 'O.K." He was very quiet and sat staring straight ahead with hit mouth a tight, hard line. , Jessica felt uneasy. She drove blindly for a mile, two miles, and then turned onto a side road and climbed upward Into the tree-clad hills o( Kentucky. "Stop here," said Tom suddenly. Jessica obeyed. Her hands Vrembled on th« wheel as the turned >nd caught the emotion in his steady eyes. Before she could read his intentions, he had her in his arms and tight against his chest with his lips meeting h«rs in a long, hard kiss. Her heart slowed with terror — raced with joy. She was wild with rage and tried to break away but Tom held her fast. He kissed her over and over. Her eyes, her checks, her motitK. She was Kmp hi his arirx. She cried and he held h«r gently, fondling her soft, dark hair with his big, calloused 'hand. H« kiuglied, softly and deeply. "X»" belong lo me," he sain. "I'll nevar let yon go. I love you — -I lov« you — and you love JH«!" «« ended triumphnr.tly. (To Be Continued) By AL VlRMEEE 3-M/nufe Shine Service Proves to Be Too Liberal OLYPMIA, Wash.
