The weather had , been wonderful, so sunny and < warm. Fish had been biling loo. • hut he'd had to fish alone because . Steve was busy working on his • hook, and was keeping a Jot to himself these days for some rca- | son or another. Of course he had , * lot of work lo do in connection ' with his leaching. Sieve was go- L ing to write to her one of these days. He just hadn'l gollen • around to it yet. He was. how; ever, sending her a box of biltcr- , sweet. He said he remembered her saying once that she had never ' sew bittersweet after October bad , opened the orange berries. So Steve remembered a little thing like that? She had almost forgotten the remark herself. What else did he remember? ' Did his mind, like hers, keep go', me over the whole summer, recalling all the limes they been together, the hours of companion; ship, Ihc few times when he had . held her in his arms, anci the way By Irene Frnnart tmim he had kissed her? The box of bittersweet from Steve arrived and Laurie put the bright orange and rod berries in a blue bowl and set it on the window sill in her room. FleU-hcr came back from Europe Ihc last of October. He was so glad to sec her and had missed her so (Ircailtiilly that it was difficult 10 tell him face lo f.-ice she wasn't goiny lo marry him. When Etie did, he Have her a pink-Cnccd smile and ran his hand through his blonde h.iir, like an embarrassed schoolboy, "You don't need to feel so badly about il, because I've been braced for something like this ever since you went out west. I felt that something wasn't quite right." There wasn't any reason why they couldn't go on being friends So Laurie went places with him. J-JER mother was delighted. She was sure that eventually [.auric would forget whatever mysterious thing il was that had happened during the summer. She saw to il that 1,,-uiric and Fletcher were coupled at any parties their friends gave. It was so obvious that even Fletcher was apologetic about it. "I don't want to make a nuisance of myself, Laurie," be said one Saturday afternoon as they returned from a luncheon. "Emmy is determined to throw us together, but if you'd rather not be with me so much I'll have another engagement when she arranges these things." "It's r.ll right. Klelchcr," Laurie said. "I'm very fond of you. Only it doesn't seem fair to waste your time—" "My time isn't being wasted, Laurie." ife gave her a quick sidelong glance and a smile. "1 have hopes that eventually v.e'11 sort of take up -where we left off. There isn't any one else I'd ever want to marvy." That was the afternoon they came back to »].- Park Avenue apartment to find Steve, looking big and brown and awkward, silting on one of Emmy's gilt and brocade chairs in the long living room, having a'drink with Emmy and Mark. Laurie stood in the doorway a moment transfixed and speechless. Steve. 1 Emmy was saying, "So Louis went on with his grubby 'down- to-earth' way of living and 1 made a lovely new life (or myself wilh Mark here. I've never regretted it. Those things — somehow just never work out do they?" CTEVE had cr-ught si B ht of her ^ now. Me set down his drink on the fragile table at his side and got up. "No, they never do," he said. Then Emmy and Mark saw her and Fletcher. Mark said. "Hello, Laurie-Fletcher—come in." Emmy colored. "Oh yes, Laurie, your friend here Mr.—-'' "Wysong," Steve said. "Oh yes," Emmy said, "Mr. Wysong, I want you to meet Mr. Sliirdevant, Laurie's fiance." The two men shook hands. Laurie slood there trembling, until Mnrk came over and put a drink ipto her hand and smiled down at her. Rood old Mark, she thought. Emmy's hish voice went on and on. "As I wns saying, Mr. Wysong, those things just simply have a way of not working out. I'm sure looking back now, that it wasn't Louis's fault or it wasn't mine. The essential factor was that we weren't the same sort of people." .%;,,ik bloke in. "You're boring Mr. Wysong, Emmy. I'd like to hear more about this book he'i written," Mark flushed ever so slightly and set down his drink and cleared his throat. "There's not much to tell," he said quielly. "I broughl the manuscript to a publisher bu; he doesn't think too highly of it. A lot of people have written books about Lhe Civil War," "A lot of people have written books, period," Mark said. "Just because one publisher turns dowr, a book Is no sign that il isn't any good, you know."
