He takes aa collateral shares in ,a Macedonia development believed worthless.

Roger Alan made the loan to win h«r and get rid of him, A NOW GO ON WITH THE STORY ^ · -you've -not been given a^ chance to speak a vcoid and you will, pre- s 1 CHAPTER XXt. (E waa Shirley and he loved her, loved the carriage'of'her head and ^hands, loved \ her quick glance and, ready laughter, loved tho scent and sound and sight of her. Could it not have bclen for him, pris; and fool that he had been? Gould he not have been content to take so much-He was forgetting. She had already given her heart-to Kclton. K,cltbnl Alan's face was grim with thoughts · of Kelton when he returned to the. living-room with the supper-tray. , Shirley was still by the fire but shi hr.d taken off'the big- boots and was'holding a silk-covered foot to the fJ?e. ' · "This wood is all buming.beautl- fully, Alan. It's been well dried-much better than,tha stuff, we get. Can jfou lend me a pair of suppers?" "Of a kind--yes." He went to his bedroom and found them. They were grotesquely large for- her and the sight of her feet H thorn 1 amused tnem .both. Presently she left the fire and began to flap 'about in the ungainly things, helping him to tidy the' room and lay the table. ' "We will have fruit for decoration ifstoad of flowers," she said, and brought a heaped dish of apples "to the feast, ! 'How glossv they are!" While He waited for her to DC seated, she lingered over the apples, picked one up, caressing its firm flesh. There was a smile on her lips that distressed him, "Shirley, my dear, what is It?" "Just thinking about apples Alan; that's all. Such a beautiful thing to lose Eden for. Perhaps it was wc-rth it--4 wonder?" He was silent He could not gauge her mood. 'He could' only Watch her, his own lassitude thrust aside and forgotten. ^"hej- sat down. He waited deftly upon her, urging her to eat and drink. He had added a bottle of wine to the meal and would have kept h« r gla,ig filled but she would only sip a little 1 now and then. "Are you plying me with wine so that my tongue may be loost-ned?" she demanded after his third attempt. She flashed him a smile. He returned it. "Covld you blame mot" 6 The meal progressed leisurely. "Hem did you get -fed in year mining carnp, Alan?" In the .event it was his tongue that was* loosened. With a skill he only marked !nte!,,in memory", she drew him to speak of Mexico. Mexico as. he had known it, wrestled with it, loved and hated and conquered it- He pictured it all for her, while the wind and rain shrieked against the cottage. He lived at again.*. . It wsis the beating of the wind and rain that recalled him. · "Look here!" lie protested.'"I've hive eaten 'and drunk next to nothing, sently have 10" be driven back to* Roger through a record gale and blizzard," .Ho-'looked at, the .c'locjt, "ShWey! '.I've been holding forth -- between , l.irgo aibuthfufs-^-for nearly an .hour. Why under heaven didn't you k U k me ?' r " ..,;' She rose with obvious tejuctance and went back to the fire".' v There was a quality about that reluctance that impressed -htm, . "We ought to be pushing' off," he said, uncertainly. "Roger knows you're here, of course?" , Roger knows," Her tone impressed'him still further. Certainly Roger and she hod' quarreled. ( , ' , j VHe'lJ be gftting anxious though, j jn a- night lik^this, ; I wish 1 had a- car here. You'll have to- let nte v r , jnot so long ago. Unless ray .decreased," there ''seems no reason $hy, you shoujdicontlnue to · lose - money on the deal." ' Alan'a 'first sensation' was that ' someone -- Shirley?--hat} "struck him violently on the chest,* jostling' · him ; to - his feet and thon backwards, through the little room, to wh«re"sUch ,,wind as could enter w . ·stirred the curtains.

You c.ould not'drivt' Shirley. She was crouched down upon the rug,'moasuring, stirring and pouring. He, looked down upon the slender coluipn of her neck, the slope of her shoulders. For a moment, his hards, following h!s gaze, hovered, closing and unclosing. And In that moment she looked up at him. "You, paid a half million for me, have loved him so -- aud *tfll love him, iron-know, in a way.
