Heart-breaking thoughts which lay in wait Tor her in the dark hours ahead II she controlled herself now. perhaps she would be able to think more sanely, later "All right." she told Joe "We'll eat at the Kalian place," It was not until the aiter-dlnner coffee cups were on the table Joe released (he thing he had saving up through an interlude of (orced small-talk and shop gossip. "Look. Alma!" he began abruptly, his handsome face tense. "How fond are you of Tommy?" j "That's somclhing I should not have to tell you You've seen us together for years." . "Do you really love him—or Is be just a form of self-indulgence? 'Do you want to go on forever being a martyr to your Idea) of him? Be honest. Jewels!" i She raised large, straightforward eyes to his. | "I don't know." she said slm'plj. I "After what happened tonight, I don't know." "All right Uion, I can wait until you do know." He spoke with a dignity she £ad never seen in him before. "Personally. I'm sure about hew I (eel. I've been in love with you ever since I first saw you. But Tommy Is my best friend. iWttile tie wu on lit kvil with you I could manage to keep my mouth shuL Now, 1 can't do it any longer." "Stop it. Joe! Please!" "I can't stop it. It's come to the bursting point. You can'l go on as you are. We both have a right to live, while as for Tommy—can't you see he's iust no good? For heaven's sake, why don't you forget him? 1 want you more than anything on earth!" "Joe!" she said, horrified. "I don't play that way. Tommy's being seen with another woman doesn't justify . . ." "Alma, you've got me wrong, all wrong; I want to marry you' I wouldn't dream of anything else." • • • JT was profoundly disturbing. She felt slightly groggy, like a sleeper awakened (oo suddenly For the moment she could not readjust herself to what he was saying "All these years Tve been watching you. wanting you. But I knew you were on the level and I couldn't have made a pass at you even if Tom hadn't been my pal You must have known. Women always do." "Yes, I suppose I knew. I pretended to myself that I didn't because we three were so-comfortable." "Because It gave you two men " "Maybe." "But what do you think fve been dreaming about? A home, * comfortable, conventional marriage with children by a wife I could be true lo. And at last I feel tree to say so. Will yoi> marrr me, Alma?" "I—never thougW o< web * thing, Joe!" "Well, think of it now. Thin* hard," Tf would nwan t (H»orc«,* ahe said miserably Much as she had suffered through Tommy, divert* was a word which had not even occurred to her. She had married for better or worse and had meant just that. But she had wanted a decent home, she had wanted children- she still wanted them So long as she had been the family's only real money-maker, these things had been impossible. One of the firm thoughts which had come to her when Tommy told her that he wns going to be making real money was that now they might revive these plans and make them realities. And here was Joe offering her all of them, just as they seemed lost to her for good and all; and for an instant, In her hurt pride as a woman, she was tempted. • • • 'JF you want time to think M over." said Joe. "I can understand that. But the next move will have to come from you, my dear. You must make up your mind which one of us you want. You have three days before I go away, you know." "Go away?" She was startled. "Where are you going, Joe?" "To Mexico," he smiled faintly. "Isnt this rather a sudden decision?" "Yes, It Is," he replied. "I'm going on my vacation and my stepmother is going with me. 1 planned to go later but she insists she needs a change Immediately and of course it's a physical impossibility for her to go anywhere alone I'd be a lot happier while I'm away if I knew there'd be something real «o look forward to when I come back." Mrs. Denton could not go without Joe. She was an invalid. The wistfulnesa in his voice touched her deeply, but she shook her head. "I'm afraid there can only be one answer, Joe," she said "1— well, I'm married to Tommy. Nobody, not even you, seems able to understand' what that means. I'm not just married to his body, to his . . . his shell, which makes silly mistakes, but V> the spark of lite In him that is Tommy, The part of him that, like the »ame spark In all of us, is a little piece of God and so cannot be anything except good." <X> •* PRESCRIPTIONS Fresh Slock Gtiaranfeed Best Prices Kirby Drug Stores ~-5ani Ocz«j.- Come to the RAZORBACK For Delicious Barbecue RIBS Served Every Day Will Get Best Service If You Bring It to T.
