He sonmlcd hurt, now, and plaintive. "You may even think you're through with men in your life but—" As suddenly ns that, tlie truth came clear to he;. Through with men in her life? Was that what she had been telling herself? And had she really believed il? But I do want one man, she thought, astonished. I want Joel! I love him, ! really love him. This isn't like those others. This isn't just a romance. I—love—him! In the parlor beliind her the piano had slopped its airy tinkle. Footsteps on the worn parquetry told her that Joel and Maurine were headed now out toward the veranda. He must be leaving then. you'll pick me up then. Thank you, Herbert." JpLUNG across the bod in the cool front bedroom which once had been lined with her dolls and teddy bears, she could give way at last to exhausted and frightened—yes, nnd rueful—tears. She hadn't wanted to fall In love, heaven knew! She hadn't intended this to happen—not ever! A soft knock beat at her door, no lourtor than the beat ot a bird's wing against a window casement. Cam checked her breath and lay where she was, silent But the door opened anyhow. Maurlne's dark, pert head appeared around the edge of it. "You're not taking a nap, are you, Cammic? I just wanted to tell you something wonderful!

I didn't mean it to be » last-minute invitation, but—" Cam scarcely was listening. The Welcome Dance! A year ago, her day would have been built around it.
