He could pretend this did not strike as deeply as it did. "I won*t say, Jan, that 1 don't think he's a heel. A married man. A man so much older than you." Someone had to say these things to Jan; Ben wished it did not have to be his role. Her defense was not, perhaps, as quick AE it might have been. 'lie had been through a strain. "He's not too old," she said. "In (act he's not old at all. And he's never denied being married. 1 kn-.-w Eric had a wife; I knew she was aw.iT. Yet I walked with mj eyes open, into something neither f us expected." "Would you mind," Ben asked sternly, "telling me what you are going to do about it? Since, as you sry, it does concern "someone else besides yourself and the doctor." "I—we—don't know." Her Raze dropped before his direct look Not from any sense of shame or suiH, although this was almost the first time Janice had faced the act that a third person would be •nt:erned. She could no longer ' Ren for (ear he would se< he unhappincss, he confusion and conflict, in her eyes. "I see." Ben's Xone did not sound as though he did. Again he thought how he would like to much that guy. \Vhnl kind of girl did he think Jim was? If his in- entions were honorable, as the rite ."Hying went, why didn't he .ell Jan? He was a heel. • • • "I MADE up my mind just last nighl," .Jan -aid, as though Ben had the right to take the sland he had, "that we couldn't go on as we have. I made up my mind to tell Eric that." There was no reason not to talk ;his over with Ben. He was like a Brother lo her, even if he did not look upon her at a sister. And Ben was being very kind, although it was obvious that he did not like this mix-up—or Eric, either. "Good." His voice was still stern. "Slick to thai, Jan, please. Don't go on. indefinitely—and svich thing? can go on you know, without either party meaning that they should. You've heard about such cases, a girl carrying a torch (or a married man all her life, and maybe the man really thinking some day he'll make things right. But that wouldn't be right for you, Jan." He leaned toward her now, resting his elbows on the table, forcing her to look at him. "Promise me you won't let things slide, running on until tomorrow become;? a lot of other tomorrows and months become years, and life, and all that it could have been, is wasted. Promise me, Jan." She had let her glance meet his She knew that what Ben said was trup. nnd thai he said it because he loved her. He wai trying to make it easy for her by prctendinf it was not hard for him. "I promise, Bengy," she said. Suddenly she thought of what Albie had said: that happiness could not be bought at the price of unhappiness for. someone else And not only lien would be lln- ' owr this happiness of .lance's—if thai were what It was to be—but there wns also Eric's wife. And there were still others—her nolhcr and her fnther. Ben placed one of hi.1 big [lands nil her arm A noment. "Will you muke mo one nore promise, Jan? Then we'll akc thai bus-ride and 1 won't say inytliing more about this." Jan thought, It's always good to je \vjt.i lien. 1 do love him. as r ve always told him, but I'm slill lot In love with him. Aloud, she said she would make the other iromise. "Atler you set things settled." 3en scticl with an attempt at cas- wlness, "1 want you to tell me wluil you are going to do. You will, won't you, Jan?" "Of course " She knew he asked because lip had to know—just as she had lo know about herself and Kric. lien could lint go on, any nore Unit] she could, not knowing iny longer. And since Janice cncw how miserable this could >e, she added, "I'm sorry. Benfly, ruly I am." "It's too late to bf sorry," he ••Rid. "Just don't let it gel too late for you to be happy, Jan. And if vou ever nnd you can't be—well, I'm not putting it very well, but ] ?uess you know I'll be waiting to ry lo do what 1 can about your :iappiness." lie could nut have said anything that would ha.-c touched her more deeply. There was no possible way to thank a person tor loving you so unselfishly. Oh, why couldn't she have fallen in love with Btn? Then no one else need have been hurt. That was a question that only the tomorrows could answer. The tomorrow just ahead, for Janice had made up her mind that that was when she inusl have (hat talk and make thil final decision with Kric. She had made up her iniiui wot only for hoi own sake now. but for the sake of everyone else concerned—her family, Eric's wife, and Ben. {To Be Continued) Chicago Look* Ahead CHICAGO (UP)- Dr. Andrew O.
