As she sat alone Ihc evening after the irip to the airport, Jessica reviewed those dreary months of her pregnancy. Remembered how weak and miserable she had been and how Lucy's kindness was the one bright spot in those long weary weeks. Now there was no hope of independence.- Now she could take no job. This was the end of any chance lo escape from her obligation to Lucy and her mother-in-law. A rigid sense of obligation to Tom mads her mother-in-law exert every effort to give Jessica the best of care until the baby came, but there was no change in her feeling toward the girl. Sometimes Jessica surprised softening in Lucy's lovely gray- blue eyes. She felt the timid touch of I jcy's hand upon her own, bn when she tried to thank her, Lucy said hastily, "I'm tioing my duty Betsy's my brother's child." A letter came with a Kentucky postmark. Mary Belle Evans. Jes sica recognized the handwriting on the envelope. Mary Belle offered congratulations. t«ld ymir father but fc« mNd* •M nirl Ihr w »t n Horn) l>r|i week-, mid how r In ].rxJn K <,i Tay Haydn and Mary Belle. An dd little stab of envy stirred Jesica. Suppose—just suppose that "ay and Mary Ilclle—silly, of ourse, to 'magine anything so idiculous as their marriage. But a year Inter, when Belsy was staggering about learning lo valk, a leller came from Tay's isler Evalyn announcing Tay's engagement lo a girl he had met n Kentucky—Mary Belle Evans. The invilation to the wedi ing rived right on the heels of that etter. Never a word from her uther. Leltcrs from Tom in Germany. Now the war in Germany was over and Tom was held with he army of occupation but soon ie might be home. What then? TESSICA forced her mind lo con^ sider just what Tom's return would mean to her. What did Tom feel toward her? His letters told nothing. They •arried no hint of (he infatuation which had made him follow her blindly about a little Kentucky Lown three years before. That brief interval when they were together ... the wedding ... the trip \r> Akron . . . Tom's departure. How- long ago those event seemed now. Tom was a strange who had entered that silly care free life she had led in Kentucky and had taken her awny to live with a woman she haled. / woman who still refused lo accep her as her daughter, who criti ciEed everything she did, what sh wore and how she cared for he child, who established an arbi trary set of morals which Jessic_ must follow because she was Tom Blake's wife. This or that wa right, and this or that was wrong Lucy abided by her mother' jurigmenl always. Lucy had her work to occup. her mind and she concentrate* upon that work and labored Slav ishly for her employer. Her lit molded Into a pattern of stern clhcrciu'c lo duty. Her mother net the mail for whom she worked mited her horizon. Useless lo try to wake I.ucj up, lought Jessica. A born old maid nd quite satisfied to be one. This afternoon had been an ex- mple of haw impossible It was alter Lucy. Always she re- erted to type, as when she ed such open disapproval at airport, attaching significance i casual conversation, magni- ying a chance acquaintance. Whal had 'he mnn felt? • • • 13LY Jessica let her thoughts travel back to the short time when she stood absorbed in the cene at the airport and forgot that he was Jessica Blake with a 2•car-old daughter and a husband who would shortly return from )verseas. It had been fun, a "re- >rieve, something apart from the drab existence she led with Lucy and her mother. Enco.iraged by the man', bright glance of admiration, stung hy Aicy's silly disapproval, she hovight seriously ot how she could ind independence for herself and Betsy. She must. Otherwise she voulcl jave no choice when Tom re- .urned but meekly to accept his decision [or their luture. Jessica rose and turned on the light and rummaged in her dresser drawer for the ring she had kept hidden ever since her marriage. It was a ring which had belonged to her mother, a cluster of diamonds in an old-fashioned setting. The day following the airport adventure, Jessica gave the excuse of shopping to her mother-in-law and persuaded her to watch Belsy for a few hours in the afternoon. She dressed with unusu .1 care. She dropped the ring in tier purse and set ofT. She had no idea of values and planned to visit a downtown jeweler anil have the ring appraised. There should be enough money from its sale to repay the old debt lo Mary Belle and leave her enough money to take some kind of training. She must and would be free before Tom came home. v (To Be Continued) "He's so disappointed—waiting all the»e years to cast his fir»t vote, and now he lays there isn't a candidate worth votinsr for!"
