"Qni lino." I Sherry bristled defensively ."Theie's one in the last sequence too." I 'She moved a floor lamp nenrc .the fire and sat down and starlet 'darning socks. ! Sandrb saiil, "What do yo' •.think,: Sherry? Should I read i ,'Djd SOMEbocly call me?' or 'Di somebody call ME?'" ) Sherry smiled. " IHd somebod •eall me?' Sandro, just natural! like that." Tony came out of the bedroom oking very nice. "For Pete's snke stop worrying jout it!" he said to Sandro. "The ircctor'll tell yuu what'to do. He •on't expect an actor to think." Sherry said "Take your topcoat, ony. It's cold os Greenland." Tony looked doubtful. "The cuds are frayed." "Then take it off when you get ut of the car. Tell her you're too •arm and lock it in the rumble eat.'! ^ . Tony put on the topcoat. After he \vns gone Snndro said, I Uiink I will go to bed. My call s for half-past eight with inake- p." Sherry said, "The shirt's in the op 'drawer on your side." Sandro thanked her and kissed icr good night • • • VTfHEN they were alone Sherry " turned to Kris. "You're mean to ride him. It's tis first good bit." Kris snorted, and continued reading his book. Sherry looked at Kris for a min- ife and thought of the night he tad held her while she cried. After the first few horrible days she had' begun to tell herself tha Mona would come back after all [hat she would let Brothers buy her a lot of clothes and tilings tha she wanted, and then, when he returned to town, Mona wouli come back to Hidden House. But the weeks had passed dul nnd rainy, and there had been n word. Brothers was back now Sherry had called him and askcc for Mona's address. He had said "Why, my dear little girl, I don' know what you're talking about! And Sherry had known then tha Mona did not want to see her. J was really all over. Marcia had been away, slill wa for thai •tatter, and little by llttl Sherry Mad grown nearer the boy: There was no silly romance nov he told herself. She did not fancy erself in love with any of them, hey were just good, kind, nlYcc- onatc brothers to her. They could ever talic Mona's place, of course, ut they occupied her thoughts, csiclcs, they needed so much done or them. Gradually Sherry had tukcn ver the running of their house, nd with the cleaning, cooking and owing she kept busy. Of course :ic hoys helped, too; they could 11 cook and insisted on doing the eavy cleaning. Sherry could not eel lonely when she was with icm; although there were nights vhen she still cried herself to sleep n Hidden House. * * • CHERRY looked up suddenly to sec Kris staring at her. She said, "Why arc you looking t me?" Kris said, "I was thinking I'd ivobably many you when you grew up." Sherry laughed. "I'm quite. grown up now. You three are the mcs who need a mother!" Kris smiled and would have aid something only Sandro came out of the bedroom with a purple irocaded lounging robe over his >a jamas. Kris raised his eyebrows and icld his underlip with.,1m teeth. He said, "Whoops! Did somebody call me?" and slapped his own wrist. Sandro said, "There is no use of me trying to sleep." Ho picked up his script again and sat down nnrl Vjeyan lo read it studiously. Sherry watched him with a little smile. It was the first time a bit of Sandro's had warranted his having a script. Her smile faded when she remembered the night she and Sandro had rushed to the boulevard to sec the picture in wbich he had spoken his first line. They had held hands and waited breathlessly lor the scone. It had been cut out. Sherry knew how heartbroken Sandro had been beneath his smile. She had (old him, though, that since the line had been in French, it would not have done Uoa any good with the producers anyway. He had brightened at that, but Sherry had had her first taste of the tragedies of a career. (To Be Continued) Save Money Today, Any Day STOP AND SWAP iXBF.RT HUFFMAN'S SWAP SHOP 401 E.
