Stanley, Owner xvi I" ATER you could puzzle over the impulse which made yon allow a man whom you had met just twice to lake you in his arms and kiss you. Later you might suffer shame and humiliation at your own weakness and hate yourself for disloyalty lo your husband. Not now. At the moment nothing mattered, for you were unable to think clearly and stilled the voice of conscience by givinq as excuse the bitter'loneliness which you had known for three long years. Afterward, when Jessica tried to analyze that moment, she could remember best the sun, warm on her cheeks, the endless stretch of blue sky overhead, the wind tangling her hair, and then Davkt's eyes, so blue and intense, holding her own. She remembered the comfort of Da\ p id's arms around her and her sudden wild desire to have his lips upon her own. Then the picture bi fused. David had told her that he loved her. Did she love him? How could you be certain about love? It was so easy lo be mistaken. Hadn't she been mistaken in the past about her love for Tom? -yine must not think of the past David had said, "Later we'll make plans, Jessica, not now. Don'l spoil this moment. Just, let's be happy." She had had so little happiness, nothing but rebuffs and disapproval. She had wanted to laugh and cry and bad clung to David while the tears blinded her eyes. * » * '"PHEY were quiet during the return trip. The sun was sinking low as they approached the ent across Belsy to meet Jessica's jlance. "Sorry?" he asked. She shook her head. No. she was iol sorry. Her heart still held a touch of I ho heady hrippiness which had warmed her under' David's kLss, She let her finders cling lu his i they drove slowly through the ^littering dusk: H wonderful to be happy, to be hived and cherished,, to forget a future which before had loomed threaten ing and dark with apprehension. Hut tbe carefree mood had lasted only under I lie spell of David's smile. When he had driven away, and Jessica turned to walk with Betsy up the steps of the old gray house where she had lived since Tom went away and lett her, the afternoon seemed like a dream. As the door cloFud behind her and she stood in the cold dark hallway she fell imprisoned ajjain beset by doubts and low-spirited. Belsy said practically, "1 wani my supper." "You've had your supper, bahy.' Lucy opened the kitchen ctooi and said, "Where were you? \vas woviied-" Jessica removed Betsy's bonnet and coal. She followed Lucy through the kitchen door. Lucy bustled about making hot tea, saying thai her mother had gone to church and that she had stayed at home believing they might return chilled and hungry. Lucy will be hurt when I tel! her I plan to leave Tom, thought Jessica, with a touch of irritation at her own sense of guilt. Why, "I UCY .suid nothing. She sut down, •' drank her lea and inndc no comment, but later, ns they - ,;eliicr in 11 le living room, she said, "Please don't hurt Tom, Jessica." Jessica dropped the book she had lie en pretending to read. "Why . , should I bother about what Lucy thinks? I'm young. I've a right lo happiness. Lucy said, "Drink your tea," Jessica pushed the cup away. "I've had my lunch." She hurried on to explain, "We met David O regury i n the pa r k and he, i n sis ted that we take a ride.
