They arrested Robert Holt, » on drunken driving charges. His had trees protruding from the lood. He had left the highway to tlov through ft plum thicket. XXIX r |THE next afternoon another visitor was nnnounccd. "No," Janice said. "1 clon'l want to see Dr. Holbrouk. E 1 lense say that I—" "But it isn't Dr. Holbrook," the nurse corrected. "It's Mrs. Holbrook. Ot course, i( yoti—" "I'll see Mrs. Holbrook," Janice said. She was curious to see this visitor and to find out why Mrs. Holbrook was calling instead of her husband. Elissa Holbrook was much more beautiful than the picture on the doctor's desk. She was. in fact, about the most beautiful woman Janice had ever seen: very blonde and aristocratic and exquisitely groomed. Apparently, Mrs. Holbrook was Similarly impressed with Janice (The first thing she said was, :"You're lovely. 1 expected you to Ibe pretty, but Eric did not tell me iyo« were so very lovely." . Janice did not believe that she looked lovely, but it was aic« of Mrs. HoJbrook to say so. "I brought you a little something." Her visitor laid a square white box by Janice's side, drawing off her white kid gloves as she • sat down. "I'm glad f didn't bring flowers," she added, looking around and smiling faintly and ittmlerstandingfy. "Yes, 1 do have enough flowers," Janice admitted; then, having opened the box, she pushed aside the tissue. "Oh, this if gorgeous, simply gorgeous!" It u-as a dainty bed jacket of white satin trimmed with creamy lace and a blue bow. "I expect you're wondering why I came," Mrs. Holbrook said. JANICE was wondering, but she J said thai she was glad Mis. Holbrook hnj come, no mailer what her reason. "I Imd about decided," Elissa Holb ink said, "ii'hcn J heard abou. 'ou, how brave yon were and . that perhaps I ouglit to chan^x. my mind and give lirie a divorce. Now that |' vc seen you, Janice. I am sure of it." "But now that I've seen you," Janice said. "I don't want you to do thai," "You mean you don't want Eric?" ElJss.Vs violcl eyes grew larger, "I'm sorry, Mrs. Holbrook—(or everything," Janice said quielly. "1 don't know why, but I don't even want to see Eric again. I'm terribly sorry, loo, if I've caused you any unhappiuoss." "You haven't." The doctor's wife smiled at her—not her usual amused smile but one that must have come from deep within her. "You've really done me n great favor." Janice supposed she was only being kind. For Mrs. Holbrook was obviously kind as well as beautiful. What a fool her hns- mand was not to appreciate her. "Now," Elissa's smile broadened, "I can really make a success of our marriage. You sec, my dear, 1 guess I didn't appreciate having a good husband. I shall stay at home, instead of always running ofl somewhere or other. I also thought I might adopt some French war orphans." "Oh. that would be marvelous!" "I Iliink il will be." Elissa said. "I think Eric will get to like it, loo—having children in the house, growing old Ki-acefully. I know h« was willing to make any sacrifice (or you. but since 1 know him bet- ler than he knows himself, 1 honestly believe lliiil he will be jnsl as sal idled, eventually, not to have hail lo make m>y." "I'm sine you are dijht." Janice agreed. She knew that Mrs. llol- urook tvas IrllinK her, quite (runk- ly. thai licr husband would soon recover from his love. Eric would lintl thai he could live without Janice. And this ( |i t | no t luiit .lan- icc. since she Imd re;ilhcd—Jtist in saying so -Hint she wa\ no longer in love, either. • * • ]\]liS. HOLBROOK «iid that sh« musl be going. She thanked Janice aqaiu. She laughed, • gay, excited laugh, her beautiful face even more beautiful now that it looked KO animated. 'I reeilly mean it. my dear— thank you for everylhiii({. I hope you Rot well soon and have a nice vacation, and I hope you. too, will find happiness.". That same clay, nder supper, the nurse said there was someone else lo sec her. Janice thought she knew who it would be: someone she wanted to see, yet did not want to see. She told (lie nurse to ask the visitor lo wait a few minutes. She said she would like to put on her now bed jacket. She also would like a mirror and her lipstick. "Tlxil's the lic-kct!" the nurse exclaimed. "We are gelling better. Wanting to prclly up a biL That's always a good siRri." The jackcl was every bit at gorgeous on as otj; he blue bow was really quite fetching. Janice was pale, but with a becoming, delicately tinged paleness, and her hair, tied back like a little Kirl's, was a soft dark cloud against the pillows. She WTIJ confident that she looked oil right, even lot- tlii< visitor.
