She must go home, but she could not suppress a wave of dread n* she started toward the bleak gray house across the street. In a few momento she must come to a decision, disclose what she ferfed and meet Tom's angry refusal to accept what Dons suspected or have upon ner conscience the fact that she had allowed Lucy —if Lucy should be this unidentified girl—to lie alone and wrelche in a city hospital.

"1 think she's left Akron. 1 think I know the reason." She shot a significant glance al Jessica over Tom's bent head, as thoilRh they were linked in ?ome mad conspiracy ol silence, as though they would connive to fool Tom into believing that his sister had left town to find work elsewhere. Had she? Was own imagination which made her 'eel that Genevieve planned conceal something from Tom? After Tom left the room Jes:a turned to Geneviev*. "You don't believe that, do you—about Jcy going away to find work?" Genevieve shrugged, "It wa? trp to someone to slop Tom's worry- ng.
