Her voice shook a tile, and suddenly she was still, tidying him with wide, almost ightened eyes. "Steve—why are c quarreling?" she asked huskily. "Darned if I know," Steve ad- iHled. He smiled at her, gently ailed her shoulder, and left. EOHGE hnd said 7 o'clock; and on the clol of V he was ringing cr doorbell, coming inlo the partmciit.

Happy held her breath, wailing or thai lightning-like thrust of a tecl-tippcd claw, not quite daring o warn George—just hoping. Timmy sniffed delicately at the xlcnded hand, and wailed.

We're going to be the very bcsl of friends," he said, and his eyes on her were warm and admiring. "Shall gel going?" A laxi was wailing. There was o reservation al a fashionable rcs- laurant, and even Happy knew getting a reservation on such short notice hadn't been easy or cheap. There were tickets Io n popular new play, and she knew lhal the tickets had been expensive and hard to get. Afterwards there was a night club of which she had oflcn heard but had never seen.
