Box Bo __^_^ Lost and found XXVIII IT was rallier nice, Janice decided, being a patient imtend of a nurse. It was nice just to lie in a comfortable bed with frcsh- smelling linen, with Hie shades half-drawn and the room filled with flo« r ers. Of course, she reflected, she -should be on her way to Mexico. But (iiis was almost as good. Mexico would keep. Everything would keep. She did not want lo do anything or think about anything or anyone for a long, long time. The nurse, her while skirls rustling, her face lighted up with a cheerful, purposeful smile, popped her head through the doorway to inform her patient, brightly, lhat she had a visitor. "But I don't want to—" Janice began, then she saw who the visitor was and said all right. She could not refuse to see Belly June. She had refused nearly everyone else, except, of course, her family. "You mustn't stay lone," the nurse warned, ushering Betty Jane in, one finger pressed wurn- ingly against her lips. "Our patient is dome nicely, but we don't want to tire her." "Oh. I won't! I']) only slay a few minutes," Betty Jane promised. She handed the nurse a bundle wrapped in green wax paper lhat could only he more flowers. 1 wonder, Janice thought, if I'll get this many flowers at my fun- era). Not that the flowers weren't lovely. But in her present mood Janice was too indifferent to be grateful tor Ihem. Still, she thought, smiling at Betty Jrpo. fhp was jjl:id it wasn't her funeral. Slie was not u><> in- diircrcnt to be glad lhat she sull was alive. • • • \fY, you look wonderful!" Betty Jane said. But she did not sound as- though she meant II. 1 must l«ok H wreck, Janice decided. She had not, up until now. cared? She still did not cnre too much. "How's everything?" she said. She rlid nol care very much how "everything" svas. but it was polite to ask and Betty Jane would expect much from her. "Just fine! Just fine!" Belly Jane said. "I know you musl be worried, thinking I wnn'l be able to take your plnce. But honestly, even Miss Willows says I'm doing all right." "I'm sure you'll do much better than I," Janice said. "I coukl never do that," Betty .lane said modestly. "Bui tlic office is all I have now. Thai's one reason I had to come lo see you. Janice. I wanted lo lell you. only I don't know how. . . ." Her voice [altered, but she managed to go on in a moment. "Don't you be sensible, like 1 always thought I was. What I mean is. don't you put the office first. If you want to stay away a long time or anything —well, just you do it." "Thanks," Janice said. She was not rjuile sure what she was thanking Betty'Jane tor, but she knew that the other girl .vas trying to help her. That was why Janice added, "I am goin;; to stay away. As soon as I'm able I'm going to Mexico, for a vacation. And"—U seemed now Hint Janice was beginning lo think, whether she was ready or nol—"you cnri | e tl Miss Willows siimcthiii B [,„• me, If you will." He-fly June said lhat she would be ,bd to. She said she was glnd J unite was a^'mv way. • • • J'M not raining back." Janice said. "Thai's whal I want you lo lell Mis« Willow.-. And I think she will imdeisland —1 think she'll be Khul." "I'm glad, luo." Helly Jane said, nntl Ilien siie burst out crying. She mniKigi'tl t ( , slop almost immediately. "I-I'm sorry. I didn't menu to. But oh. Miss Hilary, please niiury lhat nice young man of yours! If y,,n don't, I iusl know you'll |j. to regret it. No man will keep on wailing for n girl forever." "Whal makes you think that?" Janice asked. "My Bill, he up and married sorm.piio ohc." nelly Jane ca- • an .irutiment lhat was ttmvinring. "A girl he always said he couldn't slaml, loo. liul I krpl him waiting too long; he thought I pp- my work before him. Common sense and love ,!i n'l nii.v ,il all." "Maybe you're riiiht," Janice said. "Anyhiiv I'll think about all lhat you've said. I'm terribly sorry, Hetty Jane, about your young man. Only, truly, I feel sure that he couldn't have been the riqht young man. and thai the right one. for you, will come along some day." Jrimi-v's wordr and srnile were so warm and sin. ere that Ihey almost convinced Ihe other girl. "Oh, Ihnnk you. Janice," she said, "so very much! I'll try lo remember whal you said, if you'll remember whal ! did. n n t I know I mustn't slay any longer, or say anylhing Tnorn."
