Someone began to play records; three more boys-came in, bees drawn : to the honey pot o[ the prettiest girls on the campus. A 'cadet was 'with them, his eyes respectful toward Lieutenant Cox. The house fairly sang with young voices; cigaret smoke ble'.v about; someone whispered into the telephone. The place was a blur of silly lapel pins, jangling bracelets, the high, clenr girl-voices, the deep tones of the young men — precious, breathless youth. Nancy loved- every bit of ,it This was what it meant to bear children and raise them. "Where's Doc?* 1 Nikki found minute to ask Nnncy. "Hospital. Miss Perry phoned and said he had a head." "Oh, the poor darling. lie misses ' all Hie fun." Tlie,, the young people, j centered upon Nikki, upon her | glowing .happiness. Upon Brian i whose ring blazed upon Nikki'a | finger, whose arm. circled the girl's . waist, proudly, possessively. Tall ; lean, attractive Brian. He cnmc I from Texas — one. of Nikki's soror- | ity sisters had told them about thi | Cox ' ranch, the Cox wealth. Be Lsides his uniform, -his position a instructor at the Naval Air school | and the golden wings on his breast | Brian was completely and com ' u «ortably, eligible.

"What's wrong with Texas?" hallenged Brian, his smile while cross his dark face. It must hnve something,' 1 nn- thcr girl said. "Brinn bent the 'me of all the other men who ave rushed Nikki." The sweet notes ol° a new Harry. anics record lifted the young eople to their feet- Nikki's soft air brushed Brian's warm cheek. I think I'm lucky, too," she lo!d im, her eyes shy and at'.uring. His arm drew her closer, they ircled out into the hall between :ie stairs and Hie \vnll, bnck— way a little from tho others, from ic noise. .Brian's lips moved lo Nikki's lifted, palled ones. Their lOiiths clung together; they were xciled, too happy—Nikki took his and, pushed against a door, led liih down the steps lo what would lave been the basement it this louse had not sat upon such ;leep hill. To Ihc rear of the louse, these rooms were the first loor. "It's my uncle's room," she whispered to Brian. "Isn'L it nice? t was nice. Pine-paneled walls, niaple furniture, deep red leather cushions. Red and white checked curtains at the windows—a quiet, still room, all to themselves. Brim: drew the girl lo him, "Nikki," he said deeply. She clung lo him, her soft arms straining. "Oh, Rrian—" "Nikki, Nikki!" "I didn't know—" "What?" His gray eyes searched hers. "That it would he this way—" Slio saw a smear of fruit cake tramped into the bine carpet; someone had left a cigaret smoldering upon the arm of the slip- covered couch. Pete was talking in a loud, silly fashion, tne girls minfi nt his outrageous pronouncements. From the swooping gestures of their hands, the cadet and Jerry were evidently talking airplanes. . Mac, .the Scollie. lay on tho rug before, the front door, his head on his paws, his black eyes rolling. He knew belter than lo gel in tho way of those Dancing, heedless feet. Nnncy sighed. She'd go downstairs and sit In Marty's room for a bit. I-X'cn if lie had come home, it would be calm down there, and quiet. If this gang stayed on for supper— By nature, Nancy moved in a light, .soundless fashion. She was down the stairs, into the doorway of Martin's room before she uesscd that Nikki and Brian were . They did not hear her, they 'ere so tightly embraced, so ur- enlly withdrawn from all else ul their love. Nancy stepped back, feeling her wn pulse quicken, her muscles ighlen and draw. That girl and ml mini—her Nikki. Her baby— he lillic gold en-haired girl so inch like her mother. Soj much ike Nancy had been at nineteen, 'he same pale, shining hair, (he Icar, transparent skin, the kit- en's face, and soft voice. Just-so >!;mcy had been when Malcolm iiul firsl loved her, and married icr. He had held her that way, i hungry, strong mate. Nancy pressed back against the vood paneling of the stairway, lad he really? Had Malcolm once jcen like llrian and had he belli s T ancy so? Vos.r Yes, he: had. Twenly-four years ago. And now it was Nancy's daughter in a man's hungry arms—and Nancy who stood and looked on. Malcolm was over at the Hospital with a migraine headache. He'd probably stay thcic all night. Why not? He had as good a bed there as he had at home, and would not be disturbed. Nancy Glenn laughed a little, bitterly, and went upstairs again, her step now deliberately silent.
