AS the dance music started and Sieve look her inlo his srms to dance she heard someone at the edge of Hie group whisper. "Just because she's a society girl from New York she probably thinks she could get any man liere!" Laurie flushed and she saw that Steve could scarcely keep his laughter hidden. She wished all at once that she hadn't worn the tulle dress, and she felt a sort o[ guilt at the way Evelyn Crane's eyes kept following her ns they danced. Laurie had a wonderful time, but ali the same felt a certain sense of relief when the dance was over and she and Steve were in the car , driving home. "You were certainly the tielle of the ball," Sieve said, as he lit his pipe and turned ihe car into Ihe river road. There was a suggestion of mockery m ;he words. Was he. too. (odini; guilty about Evelyn. Laurie wondered. "Well, there's nothing wrong with being the belle of the ball, is there?" Steve laughed. "No. Only it slruck me during the evening that it wasn't nuite fair the way you bowled the men over. You've had so much more time for playing and fiirtirrg and making yourself attractive lo men. You haven't had la e.irn a living or do without ihir.iiF or—" "You talk as though I were some s:j:; of a courtesan." -Y,ni .ire in a way, r suppose." They had driven up Ihe lane lo I-r trailer's house and Steve st-jp; -<J the car and they sat there a moment without moving. Then he reached for her hand and held ii. ri'Ii'-'iis the hrok of It with his th ••"•.-. His wurub rankled, m tet mind. "I'd rather be a courtesan than a frustrated—small-town—" "Frustrated what?" Steve asked, and when she didn't answer, he said, "Most of us arc frustrated lo a certain extent, aren't we? Some of us can't have what we want, some of us grab at something in a great hurry and (hen find out later \ve didn't want it at all." Laurie was still feeling irritated. "I know exactly what 1 want!" she said defiantly. She was aware of Sieve's hand tightening on hers. "I don't be- Ucve you do know," he' said, "or you wouldn't be here now." "What do you mean?" "If you were sure you wanted to marry that—that Fletcher Sturdevant, you'd be in New York and married by now, instead of fooling away the summer here while he wails." "I just don't want to make a mistake." Laurie said lamely, "My mother did, you know. It isn't that I'm not sure Fletcher and I would be happy, except—" She scarcely knew what she was saying somehow. "Except!" Fie iaughed shortly and before she knew what he was about he pulled her against him and kissed her slowly on Ihe mouth, Laurie struggled against his lips for a moment and then suddenly gave way to his insistence and surrendered. A warm flood of longing arose in her, and when he let her go again she was breathless. "You don't know what you v/ani any more than I do." He got out ol the and came around anr opened her door for her. They walked lo the porch silently in the darkness. Sieve's hand on her arm Laurie was too shaken to be able to think of Anything to say. "Goodnight, Laurie." His voice was still grufT, * * • 'JTF-VK J-.vl .I'r-ndy run his lines ^ aa4 wu sUrling t» wepii* breakfast when Laurie knocked OB :he screen door of his cabin. Surprise flickered briefly in his ?yes when he turned and saw her. 'Why hello, Laurie- Come in. Had jreakfast yet?" "No." "flow about sharing mine then?" He gave her a grin. And Laurif was sorry now that she had given way to that overwhelming impuls* she'd had to see him. "I'll have breakfast with you H ou'll let me help prepare It," she said. "And whal could you cook?" He was laughing at her now. "I could learn," she said and sh« could feel « wave of crimson creeping up her throat. She picked iip the granite ware coffee pot and went over to the sink and began 10 run water into it. The room was still, as Steve watched her. "Where's Ihe cofTce?" He got down a can on! of the cupboard and put it on the coun- :cr, and stood watching as she took the lid oft the can and hesitated because she didn't know what lo do next. "I know it's silly, but I never made coffee before and you'll have to tell me how." * « • t^TRVE chuckled. "First dump all , that water out and start over again. Mear.ure six cups Qf water and then add six tablespoons of cofTee. Thai's all there Is to it. And don'l be mad. You're juch fun to tease!" He showed her how to light the small oilslove, admitting that it was a tricky contrivance. He showed her how it had to be adjusted so that it wouldn't smoke. She set the table as ha went about putting on the skillet, filling 11 wilh neat slices of bacon and breaking eggs into another pan. H wasn't until breakfast was ready and they were seated at the lable lhal he mentioned the night before. "I'm sorry, Laurie, ab'out last night." He poured coffee into her cup. "Sorry?" "1 shouldn't have talked lo you Ihe way 1 did, about your engagement. And—1 sho ul dn' t have kissed you."
