She WHiited so desperately to shake olf the burden of anxiety and worry which enveloped this old house. She tried to convince herself that she would be glad—yes, glad when she turned her back forever on Tom Blake and his family. One Afternoon David invited her to go for a drive. No reason lo re; _ fuse. Tom had no interest in what she did. His aloofness hurt her. After all, she hncl tried so hard to help him during his trouble, struggled to keep the house as his mother kept it, worked valiantly learning lo cook, and feeling a surge of pride when Tom occasionally praised her. Not love—no, she and Tom no longer loved each other. They sluired a home, which • ••••••••••» MMMB .

Something she would never experience again, once she left Tom. The thought an»ered her. When she left she wanted to make a clean cut, have nothing to remind her of Tom. Bui Ihere was Belsy, she remembered. She thought of Betsy now as David remarked that since housing conditions were difficult, they might live in a hotel. Jessica wanted to say (hat Betsy would not thrive in a hotel, but Ihere was time enough to discuss that later. Right now she had another plan to which she musl win David's consent, a plan that harl come lo her the night before when she was writing her father, telling him she would soon be home in Kentucky. David liked lo talk about Kentucky. He was always interested in her descriptions of her home nd Ihe his plantation which her Ihe (if- grandmother owned.

"Because Hugh Linlon has the power to dictate my future." An oppressive silence followed David turned oil the busy street and drove on for blocks. Then suddenly the car entered a park entrance, the same park lo which Jessica had taken Betsy ono brighl autumn afternoon when she was heartsick and lonely. David stopped (he car. The sun slanted, blood red, through the snow-clad trees. "Do you remember?" he asked softly. "Yes." Her voice seemed lost in Ihe silence of Ihe woods. David pulled her roughly toward him and kissed her again and again. There was no warmth in her lips. He gave a startled exclamation. "I love you, darling," he told her. Many, many times he had said and always she had thrilled lo his voice. Now she pushed him away. She said, "I don't love you David." •pHE silence lerrided her. It was dusk. The shadows deepened in the woods and she could not see David's face clearly. Alter a HI lie while he repeated b]«nkly, 'You don't love me?" "No. I'm afraid I never Invert you." David said harshly, "What do I (lo now? Lunch? Is this some i'ia/y joke? Arc you angry bcciuisi 1 objected to your scheme lo help IJIakc's sister?" "Thai had nothing to do with it," .said Jessica sadly^ But his Inck of understanding aboul Lucy, about anything which brought worry or anxiety or discern fort, contributed greatly lo her realization thai she and David possessed nothing upon which lo build happiness. Their love lacked foundation. No love could exist imui-i anything so flimsy as caresses Ivnd soft living, and desire for pleasure. "I'm sorry," she said. David said eagerly, "Please, darling." And then, as she pulled her hand away when he hied lo lake it, "You aren't sorry. Let's be truthful now if we never are again. You aren't sorry. You're more or less relieved. Ever since Tom Blake rame home you've been different. U 0 yon wanl to know what I think, .Jessica? 1 Ihink you're slill in love with your husband." He stooped and kissed her gently. Then tie started Ihe motor. "Don'l fret about me. Jessica," he said, "I'll get me another girl." When David left her al Ihe house he made no move to touch her other (ban lo hold her hand for an instant. .Jessica slood on the porch steps in the darkness and watched him drive away, his hand upflung in a salute. t giillanl gesture of farewell to her. She entered Ihe house. Tom came down the stairs to meet her, pulling an envelope from hia pocket. "I picked up your reservation." he said malter-of-factly. "I slopped and ordered il the other day. 1 wauled lo be sure there would be no uncertainty about your leaving." He turned and walked nway. Jessica slood starii.g aflcr him. She held the envelope in her hand. She wanted lo laugh hysterical!;, lo cry. She didn'l wanl David and Tom didn'l wanl her. (To Ite Continued) Bluebird Halls Mnils MILWAUKEE. Wis.
