First & Walnut Phone 4422 T GUIS rRF,NCH did not wem surpri»ed at his daughter's abrupt decision to return home at once. "I hate to see you cut your visit short, Laurie, but I'm grateful you came. I don't suppose there'll tver be another summer like this, with just us two together." "No," Laurie answered. "There won't ever be another summer like this." But she w?sn't thinking of her father. She was thinking of Steve, who was fond of her, but not in love with her. All the way up to Capitol City her thoughts flew in dismal circles. How could Steve have kissed her that ( way if he didn't love her? And if he did love her how could he let her go like this, knowing he would never see her again? The thought of-never seeing him again was like a wound inside her. 1 "Laurie," her father said, "I hale to see you go away feeling like this." "What do you mean?"' He gave her a quick sympathetic look. "It's quite obvious that something thappened between you and Steve. I was afraid all along you were going to be hurt. I've watched you together and seen It trowing—all summer long. I'm sorry it had to turn out like this. 1 "How do you know how it turned out?" "Steve dWn't even come to the house to say goodby. And you look as though the whole world has fallen to pieces." "I think maybe It has," Laurie said. They pulled into the airport, and her father parked the car. He carried her luggage In and checked It, found Bruno In the waltin. room »nd brought him back out "Have a nice summer, Laurie? Bruno asked. There was a catoh In Laurie's Toic« is ihe answered. "Wonder- £^J ^^^^^k* ' "You certainly «re brown as a berry. Going to get married when you get home?" "I don't think so," she sa^d absently. "Laurie's kind of upset, Bruno," r father said. And then Laurie saw Steve com- ng down the walk from the park- ng lot. She waved and he came :hrough the crowd, his big shoulders swinging. She saw that his T ace was taut and drawn, as he drew near. "I just couldn't stand to think of your going away feeling so hurt. You don't hate me, do you, Laurie?" She shook her head. The plane was being called now and she saw Bruno and her father motioning to her. "I wish there was more ,time so that I could make you sec—" Steve said. "I'm going to miss you, Laurie." He kissed her, a quick, awkward, impersonal kiss. • • • A LL the way back to New York x she kept going over the summer, day by day, and always she kept coming, back to those words of Steve's, "Our marriage would be wonderful for a while, but-then it would start going to pieces." And when he had said, "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 a mistake?" She had never before known how being in love with someone could hurt She had never dreamed that she could ever b« so -onfused and miserable. Mark and her mother .net the plane in New York. Bruno had wired them. They knew the moment they saw Laurie that something was wrong. Mnrk put his arms around her and kissed her. "You look won- derfuJ, Laurie!" he said heartily. "Yes, Mark, Jtjst lovely." "I don't think she looks wonderful at all, Mark," Emmy said when they were in the car and driving toward the apartment. "I don't know how we'll ever get your skin in shape by October, Laurie. And what has happened to your hair? You look ^positively unkempt." "Don't badger her, Emmy. She looks fine to me," Mark interrupted. He changed the subject, for which Laurie was grateful. It had started to rain and the windshield wipers made little clacking noises above the murmur of Mark's voice as he talked to her mother in the front seat. Looking at herself in '.he mirrored foyer of the apartment nousc as they waited for the elevator, Laurie -aw that she was very pale. She did look difterent somehow. Older? Wiser? Or just sadder? • • • wHE waited until Mark had fixed them each a drink before she told them she had decided not to marry Fletcher. She knew it would precipitate a scene. And it did. She did not tell them about Sieve. And in the end her mother said, "It's all Louis's doing. I knew it was > mistake for Laurie to go out there this summer. He'» responsible for this. He did it to hurt mel He waited all these years!" "Nonsense, Emmy, Louis couldn't hold a grudge 10 minutes and you know it," Mark put in. "Dad had nothing to do with it," Laurie said. She flushed, and gulped her drink. She was glad when she could escape and go to her own room. She went in and shut the door and went to Ihe window and stood looking out. The rain had stopped now, but the trees were dripping. She watched the traffic go by, the lighti of the cars sending long yellow pennant* across the wet' pavements. It w»sn't peaceful Uke the country. She missed the sound of tree toads in the woods, and water going over the riffle in the river. She missed a lot of things. Most of all she missed Stev*.
