A A dreary, blue Monday with the sky overcast and heavy with threatening clouds. Lucy w^nt off bundled in a raincoat and carrying her umbrella. Jessica walched her from the upper window ns she dressed hastily, dreading the meeting with Mrs. Blake. Betsy still slept. Jessica left the room, closing the door softly behind her, and went downstairs. The kitchen was warm and smelled of pickles. Mrs. Blake sav slicing cucumbers, a halt-bushel basket of them beside her. She looked up sharply but made no cornmertt about Jessica's lardy appearance. Instead she observed, "Genevieve has promised to come over this evening and help me mak* some relish." Genevieve Miles was a tail, angular girl who worked in the same omc« with Lucy. She fawned upon Mrs. Blake and always appeared unexpectedly, bringing some gill of her own making, tea towels initialed and hemstitched, or fanciful pot holders; and once or twice she came for the day to help with jam and jelly-making. She was quick and deft about kitchen tasks. The mention of Genevieve usual ly irritated Jessica. This morning she felt no interest. Let Geneviev- come whenever she would, and in the end she might achieve her tie sire and marry Tom. She woul< make him a good wife and aalisf> hii mother. • • • "JESSICA drank her coffee am •* glanced through the mornir paper. There was one caption o society page which Interested SARA LINTON'S DEBUTANTE BALL COMING SOCIAL EVENT Sara Linlon would be Ihedaugh- er of Lucy's employer. There was icr picture. A IhUi. homely girl with * long mnne of pale hair. Lucy would reocive no Invfla- ion to that parly, thought Jessica, and then another thought fol- owed. David would. David lived life apart from the life Jessica llake family. She k Hugh Lin ton's spent with Ihs was quite circle. She dropped the paper, amazed at her own reaction. David knew Hugh Linton well. How silly to feel a slab of jealousy. Bnck home In Kentucky she had had an assured social position. Not here in Akron. The thought stung her. If she had never married Tom Blake—then she would never have met David, she reminded aerscll. Life was so complicated. She looked up and caught her mother- in-law's glance fixed upon her and rose hastily to collect the breakfast dishes. Mrs. Blake said nothing. She worked steadily through the basket of pickles, slicing, chopping, mixing. The day fell into its usual dull routine. Jessica tried to fasten her thoughts lo Ihe bright high hopes of yesterday but was unsuccessful A letter came from Tom announcing lhat he was at a point o, embarkation. That meant thai in the imme diale future she would tace Tom with the news of her desire for separation, TITRS. BLAKE thought of nothing A but her son's relurn. Sh canned the things Tom liked be« She cleaned his clothes and hung simple, nay ua i worr them on a line in the back yard Sinpleojantness ahead? Jessica wondered if ' there werrfcgV (To B« Continued) an objecl In Ibis program of preparation. She and BeU.v were moved lo the small back room which had been'"'Tom's, nnd the front room was scoured and scrubbed and rcphpcccd. David called. Jessica had a bad moment RS she rushed to answer and then Insisted thai David time his calls when she was certain that both Lucy and her molher-ln- law would be absent. She h«ted the slcnUh and secrecy, the sub* erfuges by which they Arranged meeting*, Doris kept Betsy whenever Je*ca went downtown lo meet David, and asked no questions, nit even Doris hinted, If only by icr manner, that she disapproved ind worried. Sometimes they met In the idernoon over a table at Ihe May- lower nnd danced, and Jessica ...•ced herself to (orget everything >ut th« spell of the music and David's arm about her. Sometimes hey drove far out tnto the coun- ry and sat and talked about their 'uture. Sometimes her desire to be with 3avid frightened her, and she longed for the lime when Tom would come and she could contest that she planned to leave him. Sometimes she was terrified at the thought of Tom's return. She was Tom's wife—suppose h« refused to release her? When she told this to David he laughed at her. "Divorce is a common Ihing, Jessica," he said. "Lots of couples make mistakes." "I told Tom that 1 loved him," she snid slowly. "Nobody loves forever.** He stooped lo kiss her upturned (ace. She drew away. "You can't mean that.?" "But I do r " he state! lightly. "I'm not talking about our love. That's quite different. You've learned by experience thai infatuation cannot last. 1 '* He went on lo talk about Ihe plans he had for their future. The home they would have and the trips they would make together. It's all settled, she thought with a touch of amazement. David talks as (hough It would be quite simple.
