Dr. Hoi brook stopped in surprise as Janice came from the utility room, wiping her hands on a paper towel. "I wauled lo check over some supplies." Janice answered. "Never seems lime during the •day." 4 ' v e'e have been setting a pace, haven't we?" His dark eyes smiled into hers. He hud not continued in tht; direction of the outside door, although he had been heading for it with long strides as though eager to get away. That eagerness had led him; he leaned against the wall in the narrow corridor, watching Janice as she tossed the paper towel into wastobasket, removed some papers from the desk, readjusted the Venetian blinds. "Sometimes," the doctor said in a thoughtful lone., "I think I set too fast a pace. It's a wonder you put up with me. What you ought to do is make me slow down." "I've tried that a time or two, Janice returned lightly. "I haven't been able to accomplish much along that line." She locked the closet in which drugs were stored with a key from the bunch she carried in her pocket. "Then it's the one thing you haven't accomplished/' he told her. His eyes still followed her every movement speculative)}'. "See here, 1 ' he said abruptly, "do you have to go home? Couldn't you give me still more of your time? Von see, I hale going home to an empty house. Mrs. Holbrook left this morning, as you know. I wonder—couldn't I persuade you to have dinner with me? You would be doing me a great favor, truly you would." His dark eyes were beseeching his smile a bit rueful. « » • ;&WfE-I2LL. I suppose I could—' Janice began. She was no exactly taken by surprise at this *cqucst. The doctor sometimes iskcd her to have luncheon with iim, usually when thorn wed matters to be discussed that, undc Ihe pressure of time, they coult not gel around to in the office, "Good I" he said, before she could say more. His face lightcc up as though the favor she hat granted were more than he pos sibly could deserve. Janice recalled what Miss Wil lows had said about a man—an; man—hating to be left alone. H had mentioned his empty house he must have taken his wife's dc parture almost as much to hear as Miss Willows seemed to thin' he would. Janice had been abo to add that she had a prcviou engagement this evening. Sh found now that she could not. 1 would have been almost wicked t disappoint him whan he sec me so genuinely pleased. "Shall we so along now?" h was asking. "Or would you rathe meet me later? Whichever yo prefer, Janice." "Liiler, I believe," Janice s:m When they had lunched logelhe. she h;id merely thrown a topco; around her shoulders over he liform and been ready, but even ic smart fall suit ihe had worn the oiNce todny did not, some- ow, seem festive enough for tills cciision, "That will be splendid! Shall 1 ick you up? 1 should know your ddress, Janice, but— >J "It will save time if 1 hike n al> and meet vou somewhere," she :itcMTunU'd. Not that .she would ,ot want Dr. Holbrook to come to icr house, but it would .save time, net yes, to be Irulhful, explnna- ions. * • » [J IS dark eyes glinted with sudden laughter. "1 just remcm- ed, 11 he said, "this is my birth- lay. So we ought to mnke U a ;ala cvenll" "Indeed we should," Janice r«- urncd. Now she had no regreti about accepting nis dinner invita- ion. She thought about Mrs. Hol>rook again. You would think she night have waited one more day o be with her husband on his >irthday. "There's a small place down:own—the food is really something :>ut of the ordinary," Krlc Hol- hrtiok said eagerly. "Michelle is an artist and he's always so delighted when I bring someone who has never tasted his food. Wait util you sample his chicken, smothered in u sauce he has concocted, and the rntii cnke—well, you must see for yourself and lell me if I exaggerate. What tim« shall we say?" He looked so much like a schoolboy anticipating a rare treat that iigain Janice was glad she bad not disappointed him. It would b« much better—and simpler—to disappoint Uengy. Her engagement for the evening was to have been with him. "I think I can make it in a half- hour, 1 ' slip said, "You'll have to give me the address," she added, smiting. It was rather Haltering to see him so eager. Of course, Janice knew tii* eagerness now was not on her account; it was just that tie was so happy to have escaped a lonely evening, Ihe return to an empty house.
