"I can't liclieve you'll hurt Torn. Jessica." "Someone must be hurt," "Tom's the kindest man. He's gone through so much." Jessica dropped Lucy's arm. "That's no argument," she said. "Thai's the argument everyone will use. In peacetime a woman and man who disagree and are unhappy together feel thai divorce is th« only sensible method of solving their differences. Why should a uniform make a saint of any man oc require his wife to lead an unhappy life because her husband was in danger? Tom will strip off that uniform and be the same man who went away." "I don't think anyone will be tile same when this war is over. I Ihinfc it has changed and warped the views of everyone who has lived through it. I believe it has intensified emotions." She stopped suddenly, and Jessica guessed Lucy was embarrassed at her own words. She laughed. "I never knew you to be so philosophical. Lucy, Maybe I misjudge you," she said teasmgly. "Maybe you hide behind that placid face plenty of thoughts which would alarm your mother." "Poor Mother." Jessica could not agr&e. Lucy was the person to pity. Lucy, who tonight showed the first indication of restlessness and rebellion against her lot Maybe she was hapnicj before I came. IhoUKljl Jcssicn uneasily. Possibly 1 should leave her as s!\e is and no! tell her constantly that she should u« different. • • • ^ BAY or two later, Lucy announced that she had a week's holiday and Mrs. Bloke promptly filled every day with (asks which she had postponed for just such an opportunity. Lucy wap up early, working doggedly outdoors and indoors, drugging the last dead plants out of the garden patch under her mother's direction, scrubbing down the kitchen walls. There was a peculiar obstinacy in her eyes as she worked The outdoor work made her cheek? color brilliantly. "You work like someone possessed," Jessica told her. "Not my idea of s holiday." Lucy stripped off her • work gloves. Her blond hair was a tangled mass about her thin cheeks. "I'm goine to have a change," she said abruptly. "I'm going for an all-day hike on Saturday. Mother knows I won't b« here to help then and she wnnls everything done before Tom returns." "He may not return for weeks." said Jessica indifferently. "No reason to work yourself to death." "Be good to Tom. won't you?" said Lucy unexpectedly. "You know perfectly well what I plan to do." Jessica sho< her a surprised glance. Lucy pushed back her hair. She said, "Don't do anything until I come back? Promise?" Jessica turned,to regard her curiously. She put down the dish she was polishing, "What's on your mind exactly?" she asked. "Planning to take my advice and leave town suddenly?" Her tone was leasing but Lucy's face clouded. "Don't say that." "I believe you have some secret plan,'' said Jessica. "Look, 1 talk too much. 1 don't want v> interfere ki yow life. Lucy.- Uut Lucy was none, and tier mother stood storing lioslilel.v at Jessica ircm Ihe door into Die'din- ing room. "What were you saying to Lucy?" she demanded. • • • JKSSICA sel down a glass, picked up another anil polished it carefully. "Nothing." Mrs. HJakc advanced a step into the kitchen. "You don'rfool me. You'd like to persuade Lucy lo be a bad girl_yes, yo« would. I'm not blind." Jessica carried the glasses across the kitchen and placed them on the shelf before she answered. Then she said quietly, "1 teel sorry for Lucy." "Why should you?" "Because sde never has any young life—or fun." "I suppose you think that's all there is in life—fun!" "1 believe life is something more than dismal routine of duly and work, if you mean that. As for Lucy being a bad girl, no one could make her that. She's (lie best girl I've ever known—sweet and thoughtful. If U hadn't been for Lucy, t couldn't have stayed here," she ended, losing all control. She whirled and faced the woman who stood staring at "her with no softening in her pule eyes. "I'm not going to stay here much lonpcr," announced Jessica. Six- whipped off her apron and hung it behind the kitchen door. "I'm going back lo Kentucky to my father. I'm going back to where people are happy and don't interfere with the lives of others. . . ." "We'll see about that," said Mrs. Blake harshly. "We'll see what Tom has lo say about dragging his child away from here and letting her grow up without a shred ot discipline. If you want to go, 1 say good riddance to bad rubbish. You think you are better than Tom's family. Well, you aren't!" Jessica slammed the door as she left the room. There. She had done what she had vowed not to do. Antagonized her mother-in- law still further. Made more difficult the task of persuading Tom to let her go and lake Bclsy, But nolhinR would keep her here.
