K was a memorable evening, and after he had taken' her home, she sat (or a long time, curled up in her chair, Timmy on hex knees. a bewildered look in her eyes. She liked him a lot—a whole lot! But she must be very/vcry careful, because it couldn't possibly come lo anything serious. She must face that and make^ it -a part of her daily living and her daily thought, so thai she wouldn't be hurt later, She was quite firm about that, Quite firm!

Steve's eyebrows rose a little and the Ifghl in his eyes was quizzical. "Undoubtedly," he draw Jed, anc suddenly he laughed.

Happy stood for a moment, blinking at the closed door, digesting Steve's unpredictable remarks, his unexpected reaction Vo the news of the tea party. She didn't know quite what she had expected Steve Vo do or say. She flushed a little lo realize that at the back of her mind there had been the thought that Steve liked her enough to be jealous of George. But Steve had, with hij usual frankness, dispelled any such notion. Far from being jealous of George, Sieve seemed to welcome his arrival on the scene.
