Cam tramped purposefully up the walk to the inn the sergeant was lumbering close on their heels. Maurine. still smart and appealing in the little veiled ha! which she bad donned to wear to the stadium, rose, at the sound of Joel's voice, out of a deep chair near the lobby's rustic Scldstone fireplace. But the eager, wistful smile wavered and fadeo as she saw Cam beside him. "Cam!" It was not precisely what one might describe at a glad little cry. "I never expected to see you." "I'm sure you didn't." said Cam sternly. "If Beefy hadn't all but kidnapped me off a public street corner, I'd still b« where you wanted me to be. Back in Curters- ville, believing tha' Joel had made lov« to me to get • Dean's Award out of Dad. It I'd gone on doing what you expected me to do. Maurine, I wouldn't know even now that he really loves me the way I love him." "I'm quite sure that he doesn't love you, Cammie. I'm here now because we're going to be .carried —isn't that true. Joel?" Maurine's frankly pleading gaze clung to his hewn face in what was obviously the belief that male gallantry would not permit him lo deny her before hostile witnesses. But Joel shook his head slowly, soberly "You know that isn't Ihe truth. Maurine. You and I had all that settled before 1 left you tiore and drove out lo the farm. I love Cam and nobody else. Not ever. I told you that." * • • , " A ND you. Maurine," Cam cut in. without remorse, ''you've told me a gre many things lately which could do with explaining. That telephone call 1 was supposed to overhear you making? That was only a dead line, wasn't it? Only a deliberate fake?" Alter an Instant, Maurine nodded sulkily. "And the mysterious way in which Joel received Ins misinformation about Gary Marlowe, that put me in such a bad light? Couldnt it ere that you were responsible for that, too? Joel, how did you hear?" HiE eyes were on hers, troubled but steady. "Anonymous note. It was waiting (here under my door at Mrs. Funk's, and I found it right after I'd left Beefy on my way to you." "A note?" Suddenly, Cam understood. "Then it was you I heard. Maurine. in the hall outside my door, that night! You'd listened to me singint because my happiness wns spilling over. And you knew from that about Jo«l and me. And yoti wanted for yourself." "I'm not ashamed ot that." Maurine looked so pure, so misused, so like a modern Saint Joan at the jtake, that «veo when one knew her it was difficult to discount her appearance altogether. "I had as much right to fall In love as you have, didn't I?" "Bui nol to write that untrue account of Gary's insurance, putting everything in a light J M I waj cerlain to misunderstand, and then run over to his boarding house with it: That wasn't any special delivery to Uncle David that I saw you carrying. Maurine, how could you?" 'J'HE dark head tossed defiantly. "I've answered that, Cammie. All is fair in love. And what's more, 1 got the idea from yonr sanctimonious friend Professor Powell in the first place." "Herbert? You certainty don* mean to imply that ierbert belMd you?" "Of course not. Bu« I t*a*»d hian talking to one of thos« stuffed facult' cronies of his, one night, in the booth next to mine X Kre- molka'i. And he was bragging how the Dean's interred aoo-in- law was sure to rate T promotion. So I sort of adopted his idea—" Without warning, the deBarx* seemed to drain out of the younger girl. Her red mouth quivered de- fenselcssly and there was dumb agony in her eye*. "Joel," she whispered, -1 bop* you wont hate me too much. I— I couldn't help lovlnj you. From the first minute I saw you, walking Cammie up College Hill. M was wrong of me,'t K? It was wicked. I knew all along M wai Cammie yo« loved. And 1 don't blame you. I'm not worth her little finger. B-but Joel. K you could do just one thing for me—one great kindnes* that I'll never forget—" K wu Cam who mid, quietly, "What favor, Maurine?" "If Joe! ii bent on selling bit family farm anyway, wouldn't it be all right to let me buy itT Oh, Joel, 111 nay any price you aik. If I could )ust<so there sometimw —to the place wher« you'd b«en a little boy—and ]u* think about you—" "Well," nid Joe], uncomfortably, "I—I guess you might just as well have it if you're really sure you want it If Cammie My* it's «U right with her—" "Cammie says nothing of the kind." The sudden ice in Cam's tone startled even herself. "What is there about the farm?" Cam knew inslanlly her liunch was sound. She knew it from the sharp way her cousin'i breath^ drew in. "You aren't the kind tO' go all over sentimental about somebody else's homestead. And now 1 remember, it was more the farm than Joel's quitting college that Connie Heath mentioned. In fact, it was when Herbert mentioned that Joel Intended to sell the farm that you first really got upset. Wha< about Joel's farm, then?"
