Malcolm had never encouraged her visiting the /hospital, believing that a doctor should keep his family life strictly apart from his professional life. Sii it was a natural curiosity that .prompted Nancy to accept An- 'driew's. invitation. '''•Gradually she fell into almost a routine ot attendance at An- '«Jrew's clinics.

Certainly j il would be bad to have some im- nl Stall member side against Woodward because he had been playing around dishonorably v.'ilh Glenn's wife. It was just such inconsequential things that advanced a doctor on a Stan", or held him back. * * * TJIS fingers stroked Nancy's soft cheek.

We can't have even that nuch if we are not careful. One nust use a little delicacy about hcse things, my Nancy. 11 would inrdly do for me to gel in wrong icre at Ihe Hospital. For a time, it least, we must be discreet. Be- icve me, 1 am thinking about you —and Ihe future for both of us." She nodded, looking down lo :iide Ihe tears in her eyes. "Yes, \ndrew.
