It was empty. But in the gray powder which gassing months and years had silted over lit neat carpet, she could make out vague footprints. A man's footprints. They led from where she stood, uncertain, to a second door at the opposite end of the room. The kitchen door, she recognized, because the layouts of such houses were so uncomplex. It, too. stood a trifle open a.s if waiting for her. Just beyond it. as she started forward, a floor board creaked. "Joel!" She was racing toward that small, homely sound already. Now she w«s thrusting the inner barrier out of her way, was plunging hwdlong into his mother's kitchen. "Oh, Joel!" He stared at her. "Cammie!" "Beefy brought me," Cam heard herself babbling eagerly. "He—he said that, maybe you'd want to hear something i have to tell you. Joel—I'm not marrying Herbert Powell. And I never was going to.™ She was no* certain what reaction she had expected her pell- mell announcement to evoke. But certainly it was not the dull, cold lack of interest which lay on his strong-boned face as he looked back at her. "Oh?" he asked politely. "Why not?" "Because—" Her cheeks flushed holly, but she had to say it. No matt«r how disinterestedly he studied the tip of her nose, she had to say it. "Because you are the only man I ever could (ove, Joel, by any possible stretch of the imagination. That's the reason." For one more instant the wintry barrier held there in front of his unblinking blue eyes. Then It crocked, cracked Into a million pieces. A bright misl burned into its place. Cam never knew whether she moved' flrst, or whether 'it was Joel. But his arms were hard around her, where" a second ago' there had been such distance between (hem. ; • • « ~) A R L IN G!" • he whispered, chokingly, into the windblown hair, "Cammie, I love you so!" ' . ."I should have known that," she breathed, clinging to him. "My heart kept telling me so. But everything elM fitted together into such a horribly tight and complete picture—such an ugly'picture. When: heard Manrine talking to yon on the telephone—" "Maurine?" Joel pulled back his rumpled head unwillingly. "But I've never said anything to Maurine, oy telephone or not. that could hurl you, Cammie. I've never talked to. her on the telephone at all, except to ask her for a casual date or two. What did you hear?" "But—but I heard her end of it!" protested Cam. "She didn't know I was coming into the house, and I heard her felling you how she despised you for intending to get a Dean's Award through making love to me. And later.' after I'd cornered her. when she had to admit to me that you'd told her— Joel! Why. she >vasn|t talking on the telephone at all!" "Not to me,- certainly. But why "Because I was wrong about h«r not knowing I was on the'steps. She must have watches me coming up the hill. Of course she knew!" ' "How the dickens did she even know I'd applied for a Dean's Award?" Joel demanded. "Your father suggested-it weeks ago. But I never really intended to use the application he gave me. not until Beefy bent it into me that you'd want—" His shoulders stiffened slowly. 1 think you and I had OUT OUR WAY By J. R.

She's at the Inn in the village, right this minute, wailing for me to close up the house. We came her* rm th* same train." 'Maurine came all thli way with you? But—but why?" 'I didn't know she was aboard. Not until after we'd pulled out of Cartersville. She'd cotn« to Mrs. Funk's, and—well, 1 thought I'd persuaded.her there that some ideas she had were just the result of a lot o? overheated Imagination. Anyhow, ! didn't see her '»fter Beefy and I left the rooming house; not until the train was under .way. And after that—oh. sh'e seemed so upsel at the idea of my selling Ihe old plnce that I liadu'i the heart to cold-shoulder her. Cam—" He was blushing, now, himself. The recital of vfazt had happened on that trip to Acadia. that interlude between the college station and a (lag stop 50-odd miles away, might have ruffled the composure of a man about town. And Joel Conroy had never pretended to b« a sophistical*. His chivalry was native to him. bred in his bont. "Cam. she—darn it. she asked mi lo marry her. She said she'd comfort me. She said she didn't expect me to love her 'right away, and—and—well for Just a Unit while 'here. 1 almotl weakened." Her eyes were on hfs. "Did you. Joel?" "By the time we'd gotten ott Ihe train and I'd taken her over to the inn to wait, I'd gotten my balance back. I told ner so. But she went right on begging m« i.ot lo sell the farm. It seemed almost like a fixation with her. by then Say. if Beefy/s out from with his car." he said, "what are we wait- inif for? She's only five mlnules from here." But before he would let her go. his mouth came down over hen and possessed it. His kiss *>-.s swift, but It was thorough. It burned white fire along Cam's veins. ^* <T« Be CMUBM4) . UlC.
