She had I made a list of words thnt did along the margin of the paper. They began trust, riist, gust. She had to be careful because many words did not suit the spirit of the poem. it was to be a fantasy — the tragedy p£ a woman who had "lived." "I live all alone iu a castle of jareams." She crossed out "live" and put "dwell." From 'there on jit went quite easily. She changed a word here and there and read it pleasedly. It sounded sad, too heartbroken to be hurt any more. That was just what slie had wanted. Maybe people would read it i and wonder at her having suffered { so, , at her age. Maybe Ihc boys jvould think she had "lived." • Sherry had seen them a lot. She had met Kris too. He was older than Tony and Sandro and at first Sherry had been uncomfortabl: with him. He was Danish and blond with steely eyes and o scar down one cheek that he had got from dueling. He had been introduced to her as Captain Kvis- topher. Ludwig Van Hantmann. 'And he had clicked his heels anc bowed stiffly like Tony and had kissed her hand. His manner was arrogant, and he had a way of speaking that was like giving orders. Sherry liad decided he was alto- "gether detestable. "I'm not going :to like /ou!" she thought. But she .had. and Kris came to the door and Sherry called, "Come in." They had formed a habit of :oming to tea if they happened o he home. Tony said, "Are you writing a otter?" Sherry smiled a little sad, sweet imile. She said, "No. Just a verse." She sighed and put away her japcrs, but she left the poem on the desk. "I'll put the kettle on." _ Xris kissed her hand. Sherry lad learned to give it with the back up now to be kissed instead of sideways to shake hands. It nade her feel like a lady in a drawing room. Tony stood looking down at the poem. "Aren't you going to read it to ;?" he wanted to know. Kris saiti, "Of course she isl" Then to Sherry, "We're a magnificent audience." Sherry looked as if she had no such intention but did not want to be rude. She smiled. She said, "OJ course, U you like." Kris sat down and took Whiskers on his lap. He scratched her jowls and she purred. Sherry read the poem, her voice a little sad and far away. When she had finished, she shrugged a little and tossed the paper on the desk. Kris looked thoughtful. '•It's beautiful," he told her. "Do you write much?" Sherry smiled. "Oh, now and then when I leel like it 1'lt put the kettle on." * * • J^URING tea they talked about love. Sherry was a little mysterious, as though she knew great deal about it. Tony seemed surprised that she did, but Kris looked amused and as though he liked Sherry very much. He wai quiet as U he wanted to hear hoi alk. His attitude- disturbed her. She changed the subject. "Is Sandro working today?" she asked. He was and what was more, he was a fool. Tony said, "He thinks he's a ?reat actor and he's going to get :i chance to show it by doing extra work at five dollars a day!" 'Ever* If he does make the grade," Tony told them, "actors ire just kicked around. They play heir parts the way they're told. Everybody else in the business does their thinking for. them. I'm joing to direct/ 1 Sherry wus impressed. Kris was not. He said, "Tbo only money in .he picture business is in the production end. If you're any good a director I'll, let you make a jiclurc for me." The telephone rang and Sherry answered it. It was Mona. 'I won't be home to dinner, ingel," she told Sherry. "I'm going out with Mr. Brothers." "But — but, Mona," Sherry be- inn, "do you think you should'.'" Mona laughed. She said, "Think? I know I should!" Then sweetly, "Don't worry, darling. I'll be home eai ly." After she hung up Sherry turned [rom the telephone and attempted to make her voice sound as if the news was not important. 'Mona's not coming home to dinner." Tony said, "Then cat with usl We're having spaghetti." Sherry accepted. After they were gone, she look" Whiskers on her lap and sat very still. Now it was beginning, she told herself. The cocktails and the rides home had just been tbc preliminaries. She thought of nil tho things that could happen to Mona. Suppose Mr. Brothers' wife was having a detective follow him. Suppose he saw them together at dinner and told Mrs. Brothers and she got a divorce. Then Mona wovild be a corespond- Save Mont; Today. Any Day STOP AND SWAP ELBEBT HUFFMAN'S SWAP SHOP 401 E.
