He would come home as soon as possible. Jessica spent a night of terror. As Ihe distance between Tom and hersell diminished she became more and more upset. Would Tom b* different? Would he b« the same Tom who overrode her every wish and was as stubborn and determined as his mother? What weapon could she use to persuade him to agree to a separation? In Ihe past, love-making had been her only way to influence Tom. The very thought brought a shocking return of memory. What had David said? Nobody loves forever. The words sounded flippant and cheap, but true nevertheless; for what she had felt for Tom, that heady, wild infatuation, had died wilh his departure. She tossed and turned in bed Next morning she. awoke with a headache. She was too restless to stay in the house alj day and welcomed Doris' invilation to go to a movie that evening. Lucy agreed to listen for Betsy who always went off to bee! at-seven. The theater was jammed and they had to wait m the crowded lobby. Doris chewed gum and prowled through the crowd trying lo spot two seals. For a little while Jessica stood alone. She thought, I'm elad it's a silly show. Soolh- ing and relaxing. * * * 'J'HE lights inside went on suddenly; the organ burst into 3 selection which marked the inter- mission. The crowd moved toward Hie lobby. She saw Doris push loword her and ju st u, cn shc caught n glimpse of a pair of familiar shoulders. David. He was not alone. The girl with him wore no lint A mane ot pale gold hair touched her fur-clad shoulders. Doris saw them and winked Jessica. "There goes Sara Lin- Ion, she said in a loud whisper. Jessica saw nothing on the screen that evening. Her Imagination carried her away and she saw David and lh,i pale-haired girl together—at the Mayflower, chat- ling over a drink, or possibly in Hugh Union's home. David did not need to be secret about his meetings wilh Sara Linton she thought bitterly. He didn't have to hide anything. She was unfair to think that. He was only keeping his promise to her when he avoided her and never called, she reminded her- TClf. Gut the following day the urge to see him overwhelmed her, and for Ihe first time Jessica called him at his office. Just tor an in- slant she believed she recognized the vpice of the girl who answered. Could it be Genevicvc? Then she forgot everything but Ihe relief when David answered "Anything wrong?" he asked. -She was breathless, the call was silly. She said, "David—" He laughed with a touch of triumph in his deep voice. "Look," he asked, "will you meel me this afternoon?** She hesitated. He urged, "You want to see me, don't you?" In the end shc agreed. She was too absorbed in her own thoughts to hear the door to the kilrhen open. Her mother-in-law's harsh voice startled her. 'When Tom comes home there'll be no more of this gallivanting about wilh strange men," she said flatly. Her face looked drawn „ „ pinched today. Colorless. Her eye glittered angrily behind hor glasses. • * • JKSSJCA lefl Ihe telephone and started toward Ihe stairs. She had HioiiRht Mrs. Blake gone from Ihe house when she railed. Did it matter, she though! rebellions)/. Mrs. Blake came farther into lh« hall. "It's disgraceful (or a K irl to forget her husband when lie haj b*on off lighting for hi* country " she declared. "The fact lhat Tom is a soldier has nothing to do with our relations," said Jessica, controlling her tongue with an effort. "Wearing a uniform doesn't make any man a hero to his wife. A man wins the respect of his wife when he shows her consideration—not when he leaves her alone with people who hate her." There was a moment ol dreadful silence. "I was homesick and lonely when 1 came- here," shc said rapidly. "I didn't realize Ihe mistake I made when 1 married Tom. 1 did wrong, and 1 was unfair to myself. "I planned to b'e independent and then Uetsy came. Jf you had shown just a little love " Mrs. Ulake broke in harshly "Nothing will ever make you seem Tom's wife to me; you think you're too good for us." Jessica said (irmly, "You're quit* wrong, and I'm sorry—" Ilut she spoke to NJrs. Blake's rigid back, disappearing through the kitchen door. Ji«,M felt weak and unnerved. Alrm,..-i. she forgot the telephone call which had precipitated the ugly scene. Well, at least there was a certain relief in the knowledge that Mrs. Blake knew or sus- pecled that she did not plan to continue to live here. She and her son and Lucy would soon b« alone together, and Jessica's one hope was that they would forget her completely. A mistake' was a mistake. Nothing could make tier marriage lo Tom Blnke a success, and a life wilh Tom's molher was quite beyond any possibility in the Xulure. (To Be Continued) as of today all sub-soil resources of NOW!
