But Lucy discouraged the job idea. "It will place an added ourden upon molher," she hinted, 'and she has quite enough Lo do ilready." This was Ihe Lucy Jessica disliked. The martyred Lucy who refused to have fun like olher girls and constantly flaunted her rigid adherence to home obligations. Duty—Lucy was a slave to duty, her home and her work, The latter claimed more and more of her time and energy, until one evening in lale Scpteinber, when she dragged about the house completely e.xhausled, Jessica asked her, "Why are you such a complete idiol, Lucy? A man like Hugh Linlon doesn't appreciate all this self-sacrifice in the line of duty." "What do you know about Hugh Linlon?" Jessica wasn't too sure just how to explain. She said tamely, "Doris works at the same plant. She's told-me about him." "Mr. Linlon doesn't know that Doris exists." "Probably not, but thai docsn'l aller the fact lhat she has seen him and hears—" "Whal does she hear?" demanded Lucy, her eyes flashing. "How should L know, but judge he might be the type—" "What do you mean?" Lucy's thin cheeks were flaming red with anger. She tossed aside the evening paper she had been reading and left the room. W^HAT dM I mean? puzzled Jessica. Exactly nothing. In tact she had fibbed when she mentioned Doris, for Doris had lever spoken lo her about Hugh ^inton. Now her curiosity was aroused, md the next time she saw Doris lessica asked her, "Tell me some- .hing about Hush Linton. Whal E he like?" "Why do you want to know?" Doris stooped lo sluff leaves deeper into the bushel basket she was filling. The scent of burning leaves was in the oir. "Because I'm curious." Jessiu moved a swirl of leaves closer lo Doris' basket with her shoe. "Because Lucy goes into hysterics whenever his name is mentioned. He must be a sninl." "Quite (he contrary," said Doris dryly. She paused to dump Ihe leaves from her basket on the heap outs'de the curb. When she returned she and Jessica sat on the steps and watched the pile of leaves go up in flames. Jessica said, "He lias my ring— at least I'm quite certain Mr. Linton bought my molher'i ring." "Your mother's ring?" Jessica explained. Doris shrugged. "Probably a present tor some sweelie," she said briefly 'Lei's go in, il's getting cold." Jessica refused and went back across Ihe street remembering tha Lucy was alone working on i piece of needlepoint. But Lucy left the house ns shi came in. explaining that she wa. worried about her mother. Th, bonfires might easily start a fin and her mother worried abou fires. "Thai's ridiculous," Jessica said Lucy slood shrugging inlo he: coat. "No," she said, "not if yoi understand Mother. She alway. went to tires as far back as I cat remember." Jessica said, "I can understani your mother's anxiety when you father was a fireman, but wh: should she worry now?" "You can't change Mother,' -ucy stated Dally »s she left essica and hurried ofl down the moki'-loegcd sired. • • • |^T rained thai night mut Ihe fallen leaves lay damp and sodden on the walks the next norning. Betsy escaped from lie house and played outside for i half hour before Jessica dis- -ovcred her absence. She caught a dreadful cold. Several lerrify- ng days and nighls followed for lessica until the baby'i fever broke and she was oul of dnnger. Then Ilclsy was up again and able to be bundled up In her new coat, and In spite of Mrs. Blake's dark forebodings that fresh air would bring a return of her illness, Jessica took h«r out one bright, unusually warm October iflcrnoon and went to the park half way across the city. The a/tcrnoon sun wns as hot as August and Belsy ran up »nd down on the grnss and squealed and laughed and looked more like ticrselt than mt any time since net illness. Jessica whipped ofl her hat and felt Ihe sun warm and welcome on her own face after the long weary dayi in a sickroom. There was a tang in Ihe air. the stir ot drifting lenve> overhead. She watched the cars circle past in • constant stream. Then suddenly she slraightened up and called sharply to Betsy who ran about a Little distance away, "Come, Bclsy, we must go." She wa« too late. The driver ot the big red car moving along the drive slowed and halted; the car swung open and David Gregory leaned down and strode toward her. "Jessica!" He seized her hands and held them tightly in his own firm hands. Betsy raced toward them, stopped, smiled, and said, ''Mans." David dropped Jessica's hands and lifted the baby and sat down beside Jessica with Betsy on his knees. Jessica's heart raced. Slie had almost forgotten him—No. thai was not true, she had. kept the thought ol David hidden, only to revive it now as her thoughls whirled and she felt tongue-tied and self-conscious.
