How old ohe was and whom she resembled "She's like her father.** Tha was a safe subject, too. He said, "My name's Davi> Gregory," and ignored the refer ence to her husband. After a bit of hesitation sti said, "Mine is Jessica Blake." He laughed. "1 remembere that. You knew that I would try to see you again, didn't you, Jes sica?" She thought, This must right now. Lucy was right, in spil of all her primness, and it is dan gerous to "trifie with men lik David Gregory, David Gregory. She liked th name and she liked the man wh bore it in spite of the fact that sh determined to discourage ' an further meeting. She pushed aside her glass an declared she must go. "Without a dance?" The music encouraged dancin lie so/t low bent drummed in her ars. She shook her head and iL'kctl up her gloves and purse. David said/"- "Why not? Why on't you dance with me? H Silly to refuse, of course. * • • 'HE was in his arms drifting across the floor and aware with sudden suffocating guilt thai she :as terribly happy. Light-hcarled nd free. She smiled up at him nd he smiled down at her and is arm lightened slightly. The dance ended and they r«- urned to their table. "Now I must go." He did not try to persuade hei o linger, but there was something riumphant in his blue «yes as he met bis glance. Something which made her lower her dark eyes quickly. Later, as they stood logelhe outside the May (lower, he soid l My car's down here." He noddec .oward the parking lot a block •away. H Oi I'll take yo> lomc." His car was a convertible wil red leather upteolstery. A mag nificent car which carried the: smoothly and swiftly through th traffic and out lo the Blake house He reached across Jessica to un fasten the door and his arm hel the door catch and imprisoned he for a moment. "I want to see yo again," he avkl firmly. Jessica said, "I'm sorry." She pushed through the door and ran up the walk without backward glance. Without thank ing him, she remembered later, was better that way. Better to dis courage him. Betlcr lo be rude.* Not even to herself would sh confess the stab of regret she fe as David Gregory drove awa Probably he will not care to se you again, she thought, and stern ly closed her mind to the dele; mined glint in David's blue eyi and the charm of his di.nurbin srrnla. JAV1U CJRKGOnY telephoned Ihe day following the meeting Ihr Mayflower. He called sev- al limes and always Jcssiru loltl m that she was busy, unable to ' ake any engagements. Two eeks passed with no further ni- mpt upon his part to get \ n uch with her and she fclt-a cer- in relief, Mrs. Blake answered ie telephone upon Iwo occasions id viewed her a tier ward with tmething closely akin lo honor. ucy told her that her mother was omplcteiy upset by the idea that ess ion would c o n v erse wi th a range man. Why had the man illeci her? Who was lie? The fact that David was (he man •ho spoke to her at the mrpnil nly aggravated Lucy's disiipprov- l. She had met him again? Jessica explained. On a shop- •ing trip do writ own she had met 3nvid Gregory and he hnd brought icr home in his car. Nothing more. Lucy persisted, "lie stopped you n the street?" "No." Flatly. **1 met him at he Mayflower." "The Mayflower?" "What's wrong with thai?" ,7cs- ilca was impatient now ami ill at ?ase remembering how startled she lad been when David appeared so unexpectedly, remembering the lance and her own reaction to his .ouch, but determined to give the meeting no significance whatever. She picked Betsy up from the Hoor and started to leave the room, [hen paused and, over her shoulder, said indifferently, "III never sec the man again and I've told him so repeatedly." "Tom will be home -soon," said Lucy, As though that would solve everything, thought Jessica as she wearily mounted the long stairs. She could not expla'm the restlessness which dogged her constantly ever since the day she mat David Gregory. It was unwise to havd caught a glimpse of a different life, for her own would not be loo changed with Tom's return. For a while at least they must remain with his people and she would be one agfiinst three, for Tom would agree at all times with his mother and Lucy. The prospect was disheartening.
