Don't you think fou acted rather silly. Jessica?" "No." He persisted. "You wanted to lee me. didn't you?" She tried to deny that and' couldn't. David set Betsy down and said, "Run along, baby." His eyes were grave and for a little while he said nothing. They sat snd watched Bets} dart about in the patches of sunlight. Then David said thoughtfully, "It's the very devil to meet the one girl you've wanted to meet all your life and to flnd that she's married. I've tried to fool myself into believing that I'd forget you." He turned and smiled at her. "That didn't work. Now I'm not letting you slip away again without telling you that I love you." Jessica spoke sharply. "Don't." "Why" not? Why not be honest about it?""You don't know me." "1 know enough to love you. I know that you're married to some guy overseas and you probably think, me a heel to try to cut in." "You couldn't." "No." he said thoughtfully, "probably I couldn't." He stood up and called to Betsy. He said, "Look, why can't we be friends, you and I and Betsy? This is > perfect day for a ride. I've got a thermos and we'lj pick up coffee nnd sandwiehet and drive out lo Hie lakes. Ever been there?" H was absurd to deny that she warned to accept. The ride would be wonderful for Betsy. Maybe she would have a cha'ice to set David right about Tom. Probably David spoke lightlj of love and meant nothing more than a pretty compliment by his Insistence tha't he had fallen in love with her. Tay was like that, she remembered. Tay loved lols of girls lightly, and quickly forgot them. "You'll go, won't you?" asked David. CHE nodded and picked up her '-' hat from the bench beside her. David swung Delsy up lo his shoulder, and they went down a little slope to where the car stood on the drive. I'll have one day, she told herself rebelliously, as, remembering all the dreary days, she settled back against th- soft red leather cushions with a sigh. One day away from Mrs. Blake and that dismal house. I'll have something bright and happy to remember later. One day, with blue sky, with white, billowy, drifting clouds overhead, the trees scarlet and gold, and the distant hills deep purple. Betsy happy, snuggled down between them. David with his bright warm eyes and quick affectionate glance making her fee) that she should have refused his invitation. Hills and lakes, stretches of cottages, and the car turning off and stopping suddenly. David lifting Belsy down, and then catching Jessica by her arms and holding her jusl an instant before he released her. Her heart raning now as she pretended a great interest in spreading out the robe and opening sandwiches and pouring coffee. Tying David's big white handkerchief under Betsy's dimpled chin for a bib. Later, happy, silling with the baby's heavy head on her lap as Belsy slept and David sat with liii hands linked about hij knees, looking off into the distance. Peaceful, and yet not peaceful. Aware of a rising excitement In her breast as David got to his leel and stooped nnd lifted Betsy, settled her on the rug and drew the rug up over her. He turned nnd Krosped Jessica's hand und pulled her to her feet. "Lei's walk about a bit," he said. "Betsy will be sll right, we can watch her." 'J'HIS wai wrong, all wrong, for Dovid did not release her hand as they walked along to where they could look down and tar away to the violet hills in the distance. To where a little lakt shone like a chip from • mirror. To cattle grazing quietly In dose- cropped fields. Everything beautiful and still, so still. Only her heart beating wildly nearness. Only her efTort to remember Tom, failing. She wanted to nry, to laugh. She was happy. For a little while David said nothing. Then lie turned nnd spoke quite calmly. "Darling, I love you." Tlie h.ind which held hers tightened. One glimpse of his blue eyes and Jessica jerked her hand away and stood quivering all over, unable to speak. Finally she said, "Please don't s»y that again, David. There's another word much more important lhan love— loyally." Then, suddenly, she was telling him all about her rneetin. with Tom and their rash and hasty marmp;e, |;o r bewilderment when Tom went away nnd she was led alone wilh strangers. David moved impatienlly. He picked up a slone ot his reel and flung it down the little hill on which they stood. "You made a mistake, Jessica. You tonic a silly schoolgirl infatuation for love. Love is something quite different. I want to teach you how different. 1 want — " He ended abruptly. He caught her by Ihe arms and drew her toward him, closer and closer, with hii bright blue eyes intense and dark, probing her own. "I want to kiss you. Jessica " sard David soflly. "Will you let me kiss you, darling?" (To Be Continued) Krovoza of Stockton. Calif. She re- I yU nn T n ,f n ., C-.'J I ~,i ceived »450.
