Her father smiled as he went back to his troweling before he answered. "Decided all of a sudden he'd take a canoe trip down the river to Cairo. Been threatening to do it for three or four summers now, but I don't know what came over him to make him jump into it so sudden like." "How long will he be gone?" It was silly to feel so desolate at the Ihought of Sieve's being gone. A week, maybe longer" She walked the length of the garden, staring with unseeing eyes at the rose hedges. The turf was like velvet and the smell of the jroses like nectar. She came back j to where her father was "Steve V was furious with me last night " . she admitled, "but it wasn't my ' fault." "° f co " rsc « wasn't your fault that you fell asleep. Steve knew that. But the thing he was thinking of, Laurie, was that if Mrs Jenncr or someone had happened to sec you leaving his house at that hour of the m rf r n i n g it wouldn't have looked very good He was thinking of you. And himself, lies well liked and respected here in Ridgcvillc. and you know how small towns are. Well ' I don't suppose you do." ' "He was probably afraid of what Evelyn Crane might think" "My dear child." her father said He stood up, brushing the dirt from . his hands and looking at her keon- ; -ly. "You sound like a jealous > woman." "I'm not jealous." : "Considering the fact that vou're engaged you" seem singiilarfy tn- teresled in Steve's relationship with Fvelyn Crane." , ' "I'm not But he had no right u> say such baleful things." "Just what did Steve jay ttiat you resented?" "He called me a nit-wit and a spoiled brat. He told me to go back to New York." "Hmmm." She could s«e her father's mouth twitch as he patted her shoulder. "Well, 1 suppose Sieve was upset. When he comes back he'll have forgotten all about it and so will you, and you can go on being friends. Maybe this week I can keep you entertained." "No one needs to keep me entertained," Laurie said. "I love it here. There's something real about it. This Li the way people ought lo live, close to things, like you and your flowers for instance, and the river, and going swimming and fishing. I know I sound sort of incoherent. Bui I do love it." "I know what you mean, Laurie " her father returned thoughtfully, "but if you lived here year after year you'd miss your cocktail parties and all that. Although Steve and Evelyn do gel up lo the city for all the good stage shows and sometimes Ihe symphony con- cerls in the winter when the roads are good. He has pretty cultured tastes." "Sieve's wonderful." ;t slipped out. She hadn't meant to say il at all. 'Yes, he is." Her father went back to his work. HTHE week dragged. Laurie wheedled Mrs. Jcnner into trying to teach her how to cook. Some of the things Laurie tried turned out pretty well and one dreadful pie had to be thrown out. She received a cablegram from Fletcher in London Hiat week. He missed her dreadfully, but was having an elegant time. There were letters from her mother and Mark. They wondered what Laurie 'ound to keep her occupied in such a dead place. They were going to the mountains for a lew weeks. OUT OUR WAY •y J. IL WtMfaim AUTOGRAPHEC" AKIP IN A GILT HORSESHOE.

R wai another world. Fletcher! Someone she had known icons ago. She had actually run iway from him. She was only now beginning to realize it. And one ran away from things out didn't want to face. Had Steve run iway from her? Sieve returned at the end of the week, more bronzed than ever, and he seemed as glad to sec Laurie as she was to see him. He came up for dinner the first night he was home and told all about the trip. Later he and Laurie sat on the front porch as though they had never spoken angry words to each other. He told her about the book he was writing. "Evelyn's typing each chapter as I get it finished. She thinks it sounds good. Of course, she doesn't know a great deal about the Civil War. She teaches horn* economics, you know.* • • • HE next day Laurie rummaged in her father's library for booki about the Civil War. It becam. important all at once that she know something about it. Steve was inlcrcsled In fly-tying too and she (ound a book on "that subject and tried to understand it She was falling in love with Steve Wysong. It should have been obvious lo her from the beginning, but it hadn't been. It was so different from any other time she had Ihought herself in love. It wasn't kisses and moonlight and words. It was just a con/used terrifying, painful longing every time she thought of Steve or was with him. This time it was real and sure and forever. And part of her contusion »nd pain lay in the fact that Steve behaved only friendly. Nothing more. The weeks went by swiftly. Too swiftly. Laurie's father showed some of his roses In a flower show at Capitol City and brought home some blue ribbons. Steve's bird dog Cass had puppies. Evelyn Oane and Johnny came out lo Steve's and Laurie and her father went down lo join them for a swim and i wiener roast on the big sandbar by the swimming hole. And then one day something lappene'i that changed everything. <r» Bt <)u*mj material*— fine workmanship-^ •atlsfzclton H-fl LTCRS )U«LITY SHOC SHOP ._UJ—Wfc- •M a 1 N ST COMMERCIAL REFRIGERATION SERVICE Otho Curtner Over IZ jrr-an. experience In the commercial refrijentlnn repair business assures TOU of enpert service.
