First & Walnut Phone 4422 vm gTKVE, Laurie and her father had gone fishing. Louis French had left his daughter nnd Sieve to fish up the river beside an old log. Steve sat with his hat tilted over his face and his head resting • gainst the enormous trunk of an old sycamore tree. "You know, Steve," Laurie said thoughtfully, "there's more to you than any man I've ever known. You're—so different somehow." "I'll miss you. Laurie," Sieve taid. "You'll be leaving before Ion" now I suppose." She looked a» him. reclining against the tree trunk, orobably half asleep under that old hat and neither knowing or caring what turn the conversation took. "You won't miss me," she said tonelessly. "Yes I will. Laurie," he insisted. "There's more to you too than I ever dreamed. This summer has been wonderful. It's going to bo downright boring witho- t you around.** "You didn't mean those things you said that night, did you?" "What things? 1 " Ab . ou . 1 , m >; b=mg a spoiled brat, and that I should go :ack to my own kind. Whal did you mean— 'my own kind 1 ?" "Oh I don't know. Laurie I've thought about that night a lot of times since, anci I'm sorry I talked to you that way. If jf s nol too late, I apologize." He tilled his hat back and grinned at h«r. "Do you remember the way you ki?sed me?" * 3 Steve's.grin taded. He got up suddenly and went over and began to reel in the Une of his fishing pole. "Yes," he saio: after n moment. "I remember thai too " "Oh. Steve!" sho cried. He turned around to look at her. She had picked up a slick and was marking in the soft moist fand. He stared at the Ihree words "LAURIE LOVES STEVE" By Irene Cmttart CHE had marked the words in the sand with the stick, ft was a childish thing lo ha«e done, "Laurie!" • Steve stood looking down at her. shaking his heatl, but there was a look in his eyes lhal brought Laurie scrambling to her feet and into his arms. Somewhere in the sycamore tree a bird flung out a few bright arpeggios of song. Steve let her go. His face twisted a little, "It's all wrong, Laurie. You mustn't lei yourself imagine—" "That I'm In love with you?" she asked incredulously. "The whole thing's just impossible." "What's impossible about it? Sieve, I know now that you're the reason I came here Ihis summer. I just had to come and couldn't marry Fletcher. I was crazy about you that summer—that other summer—" "You were sweet then, too, Lauiie. And I want you lo know lhal this summer has meant a lol lo me, except that I've realized lhat I was beginning to think too much of you. That's why I went on lhat canoe trip—to get myself squared away." "Sieve I don't understand what you're trying to say." "Just this Laurie." His voice turned grim suddenly. "It would he wrong for us to care too much about each'othor. It would never work. I'm older than you for one Ihing—10 years, and that's too much. Besides, your world and mine are two different places," •Take me into your world," she whispered. She felt frightened at Steve's earnestness. "My world wouldn't be enough for you, I^aurie. I couldn't give you any of the things you're used lo, like mink coals, anc servants, and Irips to Europe—" "I don't need those Ihinss Slc\c." "ilaybe you think you don't, but they're an Ingrained part of yo» You've never had :r> do without anything." It was fantastic that she ^nd Steve should be standing here saying these things to each other when all she wanted was for him to hold her. to feel his lips against hers, his arms about her. "You'd teller go back to New York, Laurie." He ,?id it heavily. "You said once you didn't want to make a mistake like your mother did. Don't you realize this would be exactly the same sort of - mistake?" It came over her like thunder. Tie really wanted her to go back to New York. He didn't really love her. She had thrown hersell at him. and he felt terribly, terribly sorry lor her because he was the sort of a person who would He was good and kind and tender and he hated to hurt her. 'You see, Laurie." Steve went on. gently now. "Once you're back in New York this will all seem like a dream to you—a summer drcnm." 'No.- The word fell like a wounded bird between them. The sun went under a cloud and the world seemed dark, " r PHIS Is something you'H get over, Laurie. It's a craz.y unreasonable thing. You know It as well as I do." He took his forefinger and lipped up her chin and got out his handkerchief and daubed at her brimming; eyes. Crazy or unreasonable, mayb*, she thought, but she wouldn'l ever get over it. "If you though! anything at all of me, Steve, yo« couldn't send me away." He was patient with her, as h« would have been with one of his pupils in school. "Our marriage would be wonderful for a while, but then it would start going to pieces." After a long, long silence she gave him a wavery smile. So she'd made a fool of herself. She'd better pull herself together now. "Okay. If that's really the way you feel about it." She reached out the toe of » small yellow sandal and scratched out Ihc words she had wrillen in Vhe sand.
