Phon. 3142 F. A. Stanley, Owner XVIII W/UENEVER she returned from these mceliii£s with David, Jessica fell an odd seose of guilt and disloyalty to Betsy. Why? Didn't she, plan to marry David, not only because she loved him, but because David would be a better fiilher than Tom? He could give Betsy things. What things? The question mocked her. Money? Social position? She might hnve weakened, even (hen, in her resolution to leave Tom if she hadn't been so irritated by her mother-in-law and Gcnevievc. Genevievc came often now to consult with Tom's mother about plans for his homecoming. She was helpful, interested. She asked Jessica, "Aren't you excited?" Jessica said <iry!y, "I've lived alone fo long it will be queer to have Tom back." Which it would. She dreaded his appearance and started every time the door opened, expecting to see a tall, bioad- shouldered man with hnir blond like Betsy's and eyes blue-gray like Lucy's. "Tom may be sent out again," Genevieve suggested. "Tom has done quite enough for his country." said his mother. "It Is time that he took charge of his family now." Genevieve said innocently. "I suppose Tom will still live here, won't he?" Mrs. Blake screwed the last cover on a jar of pickles. "I should hope so. It's lime someone took the burden off Lucy's shoulders. I declare I don't know what's wrong with her these days." Jessica surprised an odd gleam in Genevieve's shrewd eyes. "May- JJOHIS thought Ihe same. "Lucy works like a slave for Hugh Limpn, she remarked one day. "Try to stop her," fair! Jessica, absorbed in her own thoughts anrt wondering just how to approach Uons on the subject of divorce. Doris had stubborn ideas about loyalty. "1 plan lo leave Tom." Jessica said suddenly. Tbcrel It was out. "! thought as much. David Gregory?" Jessica nodded. "How did you drift inlo [hot?" "I didi-.'l drift. Probably fate" Doris said dryly, "Don'l hand me that Luc. Fate has nothing lo do wilh Ihe mess you'll make o( your life if you make not one but two mistakes." "I love David and he loves me." "Vou love wlial David represents," said Doris bluntly. "You love the idea of stepping into tiic kind of life you led until you met Tom Blake." She shook her auburn head. "It's no good trying lo ep back, my girl. Look, you married one man whom you'd known loo little, and now you plan to leave him and marry another _.,^ whom you know less. Love-making tricked you once — " "It isn't tricking me. as you ptlt it, inlo another." Jessica prepared to leave, stung by the accusation in Doris' steady eyes. "I've considered the whole allair. I've refused to run away. I plan to wait and discuss the whole thing calmly with Tom." "He'll never let you go." "He can't keep me." 1 "He can keep Betsy.
