Another long pause. Laurie said "Didn't you like to k:ss me?" "Good heavens, Laurie, that's a silly thing to ask. Of course I did." He rose from the table abruptly and put the coffee pot back on the stove. He returned. "But you just don't go around kissing girls who are engaged to somebody else." "Oh, Sieve." she whispered'. "I hked it too." Steve gulped some coffee. After a moment he said. "Sure. You're lonesome and away from the man you love. It wax really Fletcher Sturdevam you kissed last night Not me." He rose from the table abruptly scraping his chair back. "I'm awfully sorry, Laurie, to have to hurry off. but 1 promised Evelyn last night that 1' ( ' ve her and Johnny up -o Capitol City to the Clinic. Johnny's under treatment there, and tl.e second Sunday tn the month he goes into the hospital. Evelyn doesn't have « car of her own." "You'l! be gone all day?" She couldn't disguise her disappointment. "Probably be back around supper time." "Could we go for a swim then? There'll still be a full moon " "Maybe." •Tlcase." He shrugged. "?f you'll excuse me now, I've got to shave." He glanced al his watch. "Go ahead and finish jour breakfast" He went off into the back wing of 'he cabin and presently she heard ihe sound of the sho er running. Laurie got up from ;li c lub'.e and went out, closing the screen softly behind her. Last night, ;h« thought x she went back up the path, Steve had told her in effect that she was not sure she was in love with Fletcher, and he had kissed ner. This morning he seemed to take U for granted that si e was in love with Fletcher. And he was sorry for last night's kiss. Why? Was it because of Evelyn Crane? Her day stretched ahead somber and empty. She helped her father in his garden for a while and then in the afternoon curled up in the shade to read a book Steve had lent her. The book was boring, for some reason or another and after supper she decided to return iL It was as good an excuse as any to sec whether or not Steve had returned frorr Capitol City. He wasn't home yet, 1ml the house was never locked and Laurie went in. because she knew he wouldn't mind her picking out another book. She browsed through the volumes on his desk, picked out a likely one and sat down on the davenport to skim through it. "~ ve woulr 1 probably be home shortly. The book was rather interesting, so she turned on the radio and settled herself to read. H^HE next thing she knew some one was shaking her awake, and she heard Steve's angry voice saying, "Laurie, what are you doing here at this time of the night?" She sat up, blinking. "Is i( late? I musl have dor.eo" ofT." The radio was still bleating. "It's 2 o'clock in the morning." Laurie yswned. "Fine time for you to be coming home, especially when you knew we were going iwimming."

"Suppose Mrs. Jenner ahoukl ;ec me bringing you home »t this time. She knew you were coming down here, 1 presume. Laurie nodded as she .stood up, still yawning. "Don't be mad »t me. Steve," she whispered. She fell all warm and sleepy and quite reckless, and suddenly she reached out her arms and put them around his neck snd lifted her lipi to his. Steve \lricd to push her away but then all at once he pulled her against him and kissed her. She was trembling when he let her go. "Come along. I'll take you home." He was standing at the screen door, opening H. His yoice was brusque and impersonal. She almost had to run to keep up with him as he stroc'e up the path. J-TS stopped and waited for her to catch up. "You little nitwit," he said hoarsely, "you're a spoiled brat that's always had her own way about everything and thinks she can have jus! anything she takes a fanjy to. Why don't you stop fooling around here and go back to New York and get married? At least go back to your own kind." I^urie couldn't think of anything to say, so she followed him silently the rest of the way. There was a lighl in the library still and at Sieve's knock her father came out to Die door. "I've got your child here, Louis. She fell asleep on my davenport and I found her there when I got home Just now." "For goodness sake, Laurie." her father said, "I thought you were upstairs in your own bed asleep." She went past him swiftly. 'Good night, Dad." In her own room she shut the door and slood there against it. Her eyes brimmed and spilled over. The salty tears stung her chocks and one ran down her nose. Steve's words echoed in her mind confusedly. Maybe she should go back and marry Fletcher. She felt miserably lost and confused. (To Be Continued) HflLTCRS >UHLITY SHOE SHOPi in w. M o i N ST.
