Ill "JS that yon, Janice?" her mother called from Ihe kitchen almost as soon as Janice bad lei ; herself into the house. Her mother would know that it would be. Jani ice's father did not conic home for i dinner on Tuesday nights; lie had j not missed his lodge meeting iti :she could not remember how many j ; years. And when Albie, her 'younger sister and the only other member of the household, civinc in, it was always lo the accompaniment of such a clatter nnci confusion that nti announcement was needed to know it was she. Janice called out a "hello" that ought lo sound natural and gay enough to assure her mother that •it'was she, and that all was right with her world. So it was, even if the gaiety wa.s a litlle forced at the end of a long day. The Hilary house was an old- fashioned three-storied one with the kitchen and dining room he- low street level, Ihe parlor and living room behind the entrance hall, and narrow curving stairs leading steeply up to the top floor and its three bedrooms. The whole house was dark and narrow. Yet it was a lovable little house, one With characler, tucked as it was between high, wide apartment buildings so Hint its tiny courtyard and grilled gate were almost lost to the casual observer.

Call 2228. l[5-pt-2|5 Janice's father had bought it for a song 27 years ago; it cauld have been sold for a small fortune in tin's postwar period of housing shortages. Hut neither he nor Mrs. Hilary would have dreamed of such a proceeding. The litlle house WHS home. When Graham Hilary had purchased it, the house had had olhcrs of ils kind for companions. It had been far enough east of Park Avenue not to be fashionable and it could be bought for the small down payment that Graham could afford. Now most of the narrow old houses were lorn down; and tall modern apartment buildings had taken their places. • • • 44 A REN'T you coming down, dear?" Janice .stopped, a hand on Ihe polished balustrade of the narrow curving stairs, to look down the even steeper straight flight that led to the lower Jloor. "In a sec," she answered, raising her voice to the pilch required lo carry below. The entrance hall was the darkest place in the dim house. Her mother usually turned on the switch lighted the crystal chandelier in the high ceiling before Janice's and her husband's return. Tonight she must have forgotten, and Janice had not thought about it. She had been impatient to reach her own room; she had wanted, although she did not know why, to be alone a short while before facing her mother's serene, yet searching, eyes. Til be down in a litlle while," she added. "Unless it's something that can't wait, Mother." She started up the stairs, pulling off her gloves as she went. "It can't wait long." Her mother's voice followed her, a voice that usually was tranquil, but lo- night held a touch of suppressed eagerness and pleasure. Janice paused. She did not want to go down, she did not want to face her mother—hut there was no sane reason why, "I'll be right down, then," she called. As she 'cached the botlom step of the lower llijjht, ihc light from Ihe kitchen, in contrast lo the hallway and stairs, was almost loo bright. Thai may have been why .laiiice did not immediately recog- ni/.c the person standing directly behind her mother. "Now you see why 1 .viiiil It couldn't wait." Mildred Hilary's face svas wronlhed in smiles. "WHY, Bcngy!" The old nickname came spontaneously as Janice look a step forward, her face brightening. "11 enn't bcl When did you get home? We all supposed it would be much longer, coming from so terribly far, and not having hoard in such ages. It is you, isn't it, Ben?" "In person," returned the- young man who stood so straight and tall behind Janice's fivc-foot-two mother. He stepped .if mi nti beside Mrs. Hilary now, sliding a purposeful arm around her compact waist. He bent and gave her a resounding kiss on her smooth check. When he straightened up his cyci were merry with mischief. "That's the way your mother Brccled me, Ihe proper greeting for the hero returned from the wars. I don't suppose"—his tone became mockingly reproachful— "that I dare anticipate another such heart-warming and appropriate salutation from her daughter." "Not unless you want lo be put in your place," _Janice retorted, her quickly extended hand contradicting the rebuke. "You're Just the same, Benjamin Early Archer —a great big overgrown tease, even if you have been off to the war for three years—can it be that long? You haven't changed one whit, at least not so it shows." He took her hand in his and held it a rather long while. His merry eyes—certainly they betrayed no evidence of the things a Navy man must have witnessed during three endless years of war •—looked her over slowly, as though they had hungered a long while for this moment.
