N<-II dn; »k« VI JJEFORF. she reached the porch r.f the nW rose brick house, Jessica dropped her wedding ring into her purse. Within the house silence greeted her. Th« door to her father's study stood open but he was gone. She rushed upstairs. flung open her own door and threw herself down on the bed. ^'or an instant she iay quile still, inen and emotionless. Then she began to sob hopelessly and bitterly. How undo this wretched mistake' She did love Tom — yes, she loved Tor- dearly, if love meant the wild delirium they had shared together. But the price was too high. This was no longer her home. She had exchanged home .for uncertaint}-. The tears came in a fluod. She had promised to meet Tom, to go away with him. She must prepare to leave at once. As she wrapped herself in a robe, Annie, her personal maid, who had waited on her hand and foot since babyhood, tapped on the door. "Miss Jessie, you sick?** Annie came in carrying a breakfast tray and stood with her dark eyes bent anxiously upon the girl, "No, I'm not sick." She threw up her head belligerently. "I'm —i'm married," The small black woman slaved at her. "Whnl fool '.hing you sayin' now? You rnatriedl" "But I am married. To a soldier. His name ii Tom Blake. I'm Mrs. Tom Blake." She snatched up har purse and opened it, dug up the ring and jammed it on her ringer. She held up the hand for Annie to see. "Your father goin' to shoot that soldier sho' as you're born. Miss Jessica. Lucky he ain't home." "Where is he?" "Lexington." Jessica moved nervously back and (orth putting on her clothes. She said, "I'll fix a note and explain. Now help me pack." "Where you goin'2" "With my husband," said Jessica jauntily. "Please jet my bass and I'll tell you what to put in." She crossed the room and opened Ihe mirrored doors ot the wardrobe. She debated just what to select while Annie followed he. about her head mournfully and mumbling • « • jyF,lTHER heard the bedroom door open. Mary Belle Evans stuck her chestnut head into the room. "What's happened?" she demanded. "Annie acts as though ther^'d been i funeral." "Just a wedding." Jessica did not turn her head. Mary Belle said, "So he put it over?" "What do you mean?" 'II- declared he'd marry you. Everyone kidded Tom Blake for being a fool and dreaming that a girl like you—" "Please, don't say anything against Tom." "I suppose your father went off this morning before you returned?" Mary Belle asked bluntly. "I never get up until noon," Jessica said. "He wouldn't miss me." "You'll miss him now." Mary H«> sat down. "Incidentally what are your plans, Mrs. Blake?" ''Torn thinks he'll have n fu r - luush. I suppose we'll spcnii it on i honeymoon," said Jessica uncertainly. Mary Belle looked skeptical. "He'll lake you home to meet his folks." she observed. "Got any inor.ey? 1 ' "Not much, Why?" "You'll need money, won't you?" jyjONEY. The word meant noth- Ini! to her. There were charge accounts and bills her father always pniil and pocket money when she needed It. .Jessica opened her purse and counted out J3 and some change. "Tom -vill RJVJ me money," she said hopefully. "Any idea of a corporal's pay?" "No . . ," Mary Belle opened her own purse and brought up a roll of bills. "Here's my allowance," she insisted. "You must take It. I'll explain to Granddad and he'll let me have some more. You can't go oft like this, Jess. Suppose >oll don't like Tom?" "You're forgetting—I cnn't come back." Jessica brushed aside the tears am; remade her (ace and soon Annie announced that the things slie wished were packed and she would carry Ilicm downstairs. Mary Belle and Jessica followed. Tom was at the station, big and clean-shaven and coming forward quickly to take Jessica's arm possessively. "1 was a'-aid you'd stand me up." he said. Mary Belle stormed, "You should be shot for persuading Jessica ID go off like this." The train roared in and a few people who stood about the platform regarded them curiously as Tom hurried Jessica toward day coach. "Well, we're on our way," Tom said. Jessica forced herself to ask, "Where are we going?" "Akron." He toraed their bags in the rack overhead. "I'm taking you lo Akron and leaving you wild my folks until I'm discharged from the Army."
