I Something had happened tc the i street lights and the medieval court i \vas~dark. It wns a warm darkness j though, that smelled o£ lioncy- 1 suckle; Sherry walked slowly to • Hidden House. ! , This \\'as all so strange. It hurl 1 'as much as Jionnls soin«, but there j was no tight band 'around her ! chest, .ho lump in her throat. It j was easier to let the tours fall than i. )o try to hold them back, but-they j brought no relief. She seemed to ; be filled with heavy hurt. ! . She let herself in slowlv, and | mechanically went about 'her ; nightly chores. Then she put out i the light and got into bed. She felt dully that if she could think about it she could get it straightened out, but she could not think. She started to cough. She coughed for a long time, then lay back weakly. Jt was hoi and she was dizzy. Everything was black. she opened her eyes it was bn'ijht and sunny. A queer -sort of sunshine that was very far a \vny. A bell was ringing somewhere, but not near enough to have any connection with her. Afteiv n while its insistence troubled her though. H was a telephone—her telephone. Sherry got up nnd went to il She did not hurl any more. Thai was nice. -,r~ Sho said, "Hello." '$&]>$& It was Tony. ,"»*.»? lie said, "Did you have n good sleep? We phoned Mrs. Drood that you weren't feeling very well and were taking, the day off." Sherry said, "What time is il?" Tony laughed. "Ten pasl twelve. We're bring- in!; your lunch over." Sherry said, "Thank you: I'll leave the door open," and hung up. It was nice that you could make a bed nnd bathe without having to iliink about it. Before she was out i:f tho tub she could bear the boys laughing in the liviiig room. She put on lounging pajamas nnd wenl out. Her hmch was ready on the card lable. Tony and Sandro were standing at attention with dish knvels on their anns, prelcnduig to bo waiters. Kris said, "This way, Madamk' and indicated the table from whiclV, he was holding otilithe chair. ' Then they all stared at her.. Sherry smiled what was meant lo be a smile. Tony said, "My B - O :]i, you're beautiful, Sherry!" Snndro said, "But you- have never looked like this before." Kris came closer to her. "Sherry, arc you \\f!" ' ' . Sherry heard herself say, "Thai's a coinph'mcnl! Can't X look nice without bcrni; ill?" "• « * 'J'HE boys tried lo amuse lier while she aic, but they did it a little worriedly, watching for effects, nnd tliey were more nlTcc- tionnto tlian usual. Kris snt Ljeside her and took her hand. "We tried to make an appointment wilh llial doctor Uarton spolto of, but he isn't in his olllui; Saturday afternoons. Will you jui Monday surely? We've got to do something nljoul that cough." She nodded. She said, "I will, vciilly. Maybis' Hint's whnl's making me so lived." By lea time she felt NHK-U belter —more solid and natural—and (lunkmjr was not sueh an etl'ort. Sandro Ijnd made the tea and lony was- pretending to read Sherry's cup. He was making up nice nonsense when the Itnocker ehmked. Kris opened the door It was Peter Dat ton. Siiiulro said, "Oh, come in " Peter explained that Mrs. Droml had told him Sherry wus ill, and. lie had just dropped by to sec it lie could do anything. , Sherry thanked him and asked him to have some tea. The boys seconded the invitation ami Peter .seemed glad to stay. Sherry was quiet and let the hoys do the talking. F OT (he fust time she really noticed Peter. His hair was a little darker than hers and his gray eyes were kind. She thought him lo be about thirty and nice-looking in a clean, healthy way. lie liad broad, dependable shoulders and a reserved manner He would not be likely -to have many friends though. The boys drew him out a bit. It seemed that Peter lived alone in the Montenegro, a swanky apartment house near by. lie had no family and did not BO about much. He seemed to like the boys though, ami they him. Sherry began lo cough again, 1 ' Peter and the boys slopped talking and watched her. she put a handkerchief to her mouth and turned away. • Kris.sat her up and palled her hack. Tony went for some water. Sherry coughed for a long lime, then lay back exhausted. She saw Tony's face go white and realized that he was staring at the handkerchief in her hand. She looked at it. There was,blood on it. ' (To Uc Continued)/ 401 Ii. Main 1'ou Musi lie Buve Money Today.
