XIII ALWAYS before, when I have •" thought back to the weeks between Selena LcNormand's coming to Now York and Jerry's marriage to her, it has seemed to me that nothing important happened in them. And yet the small things might have added tip to much more than I made of them nt the time. 1 ' Jerry was a man in love. He was certain that Selena was the only woman in the world, and looking at her magniAcent beauty It WHS not hard to understand why he thought so. If I had not formed a deep dislike for her, tinged somehow with fear, at that first meeting, I am sure that I should have been in love with Selena myself. Sometimes it slopped my breath to look at her. From the very start it was obvious that she was attracted by Jerry. When I saw them lo- gather I could never be sure that she loved him, but remembering the change that came into her face when she first saw him, in LcNormand's house in Col- legcville, 1 never doubled his power to-affect .her deeply In some way thnt wns not at 'all clear to me. I don't believe there wns a single minute from the beginning when she did not in j tend to marry him. Of course, I am being clearer And. more ticiiniUi itlxnU. U>c rela- r ML btttrfclM hy HIA tionship between them now than I wns at the time. I managed to overlook the actual meaning of several episodes. The first of them happened a few days after Selena LeNor- mnnd came to town. As Jerry requested, I had explained the problem to Grace. Grace is an ncute person, in her way, and when I talked to her beforehand about the situation and what she was supposed to do, I think she fathomed my feelings, and I know she was prepared for something out of the ordinary. Jerry and I had gone round to the latest decorator's delight in which Grace and Fred were living. The furniture was upholstered in dull silver-colored cloth, and there was one of those Brancusi streamline'things in an alcove at one end of the room, indirectly lighted, so that it gave you the feeling of an evening star. JERRY was surveying the place with a look of amu.scd interest; his eye lit on the Bran- cusi thing and he smiled briefly, then sat down tentatively at one end of the big sofa. Grace saw his glance. "I do hope you approve, Jerc- minh," she raid, He nodded at the wall niche. "That thing there is good. I like it." Grace was tnkcn aback. I could see that she had hoped to be able to lease him with it. But she rallied nobly. "I knew you would, my precious." Jerry dismissed It with his highest prnlse, "It's almost pure mathematics." Grace s;it down somewhat abruptly at the other end of the sofa, lit a clgnrct—mercifully not one of her special, Imported ones —and saki. "Your phoned a few minute* ago. She has a lovely voice." Jerry said, "Hasn't she?" in a noncommittal tone. Grace gave him her quick smile and crossed her legs. "Poor Fred had to go out tonight They're doing something or other at the Brook Club." I saw that she hail deliberately got Fred out of the way for the occasion, but she meant him to know it and appreciate the fact. Jerry landed one of his rare quick lefts to the chin. "Thank you," he said. I laughed, and Grace gave m« a little snoot of mock irritation. "She said she was on her way," Grace went on. Jerr^ said nervously, "This i* very good of you." "Nonsense," said Grace. "I'm complimented, my pet, really. Two tributes to my taste, from you, in the same week!" The doorbell rang exactly then, and Grace got up at once to answer it, I got up, uncertainly, and put my hands in my pockets. After a moment Jerry rose too. They cam^ into the room, and as I saw Selena again, the prickle went down my spine. She was a whole head taller than Grace, and she moved down the room toward us with the long, free stride of an Italian hill-village woman. * • * THIS lime she was wearing a black evening dress, and the while-silver of her arms and shoulders and throat was unforgettable. But her dress itself was hopeless. For one thing it was cheap, and a little too short for her. Then, more than anything else, it was vulgar. Glittering black sequins which were too large, and all wrong anyway. The line front was too extreme, and at no place did the thing really fit her. "This is a very Interesting room," Selena said. Her tone conveyed to me that she meant the words literally. The room interested her, "I'm so glad you like it." To my surprise, Selena turned to me and said, "New tilings art always an adventure."
