He said, "My lovely one," and that was all. "Are you going riding?" Sherry ivanted to know, and Tony said no, as though there was not any reason to explain why they wore boots. Sherry supposed it was because they were thinking about linbits and things, and said no morn about it. She put some perfume behind her ears and replaced the long stopper in the bottler- Kris tool' the botlle out to Tonyv "This is the kind I meant," he sal,-!, and they smcllcd the perfume and talked about it while Sherry got her gloves and put a fr«sl hnndkcrchieC and the lipstick ir her handbag.

She tuined off tlie tap and sprinkled bath salts in the water. She .wished Marcia was home; EtMQr would go oxit and do some- Sling But Marcia would not bt back until tomorrow. Still it was just possible* Sherry put down the bath salts and hurried into the bedroom. She knelt on the chaise longue and dialed the number, then she Ijfrjback against pillows and wnit- St~,There was no answer. She Sung up disappointedly, and the telephone rang in her hands.

"Even though you don't have to vork now," he said, "you ought keep it up," and he went on t« ell her how she should set apart few hours a day for it. Kris said, "You know Orville VIcrrinian didn't pick any duds, Sherry. You can write if you want 'o." "Oh, I will," Sherry said, "but just don't seem to get to it." They went on talking about it ind little by little Sherry began o feel ambitious. : She thought, I'll get a typewriter —a pretty one—and really work or two or three hours every day. She sakl, "I have » couple of dens, but they're not suitable for >iclures." "Then write magpzine stories!" 'ony lo!cl liBi 1 . "Anything so long as yon keep at it!" Tony suggested that they shop 'or a good riding stable after tea, and they spent the rest of the ittcrnoon visiting stables, getting prices and looking at horses. * » # HEN Sherry got home the living room was dark. She lighted :he lamps and stood looking at the room. It was beautiful, dully colored and rich. * Long velvet drapes hung in artistically correct folds to tho floor. Sherry crossed to them and pulled the heavy cord. The velvet swung dramatically back and she could see the lighted windows and the hills and the cool night sky. Sherry stared at the night and wished she knew what she wanted. But il was funny when you thought about it, she had never had a thing she really wanted! She had asked , for nothing more life than to live in Hidden House with Mona. Mona had gone away. Then she had really been going to write. Orville Mcrriman had died. Then at last she had known. It had been Tony, to marry and love forever. Tony had not loved her. She told herself that everything she v.'anlcd was taken away. Maybe il was better not to want anything at oil.
