She wished she could have ordered a brandy. There seemed no doubt, thai Eileen was suffering a chill, or shock. "Wliy didn't f talk to you yesterday?" Eileen said. "Why didn't I go home, as you wanted me lo?" She buried her face in both hands, elbows on the hard table. But in a moment she looked up again. Her voice was dull, lull of disbelief in what she was about to say. "She's gone," Khe said flatly. "He did it. He said he would. But I never thought he would. If only I'd talked to you—to someone— yesterday." "Tell me about it now," Janice suggested gently. "Try to take a sip or two of your lea while it's hot. You're shivering, Eileen; you'll catch a dreadful cold. That's right—fine." She gave the older girl a smile of approval as she obeyed, almost automatically. "Now lell me—who's gone and whom do you mean by 'lie'?" Of course Janice knew lhai Eileen meant Edna Mae; she could not be so upset about anyone else.

He said, when I told him to (jet out, that if be did, he'd sec thai I'd live to regret it to the last day of my life." Janice tried to summon a little laugh uf reassurance. She said, "Of course he was only binding." "That's what I thought." It still seemed as though Eileen could not put what she had to say into words, as, though she was afraid that if she did, she must acknowledge the truth of them. "Yes?" Janice prompted again. "He said he'd lake her away and I'd never see her again." There—the dreadful words were out. Eileen said them in the same (lat voice, but there was conviction in her tone as she added, "Thai's what lie's done, all right, ru never sec her again—never. My bab-j—my little girl!" She turned tier head away as though she knew that the grief in her eyes was too much to ask anyone to !&>k upon. Janice reached quickly across the table.

"I understand," Janice said. She decided lhal it would he belter, lor other reasons, too, nni to have Eric know. Janice was discovering, since that evening when he had taken her to dinner, that it was no longer wise lo go (o the doctor during odicc hours about anything lhal was mil slrid- ly profession;]]. It was becoming difficult enough lo maintain the roles of doclor and office nurse. There was, of course, one other man Janice could go lo. Eon Archer.
