He turned to Emmy. "It was fine meeting you, Mrs. Carr." He sViooV hands wilh Mark and Fletcher, then turned to Laurie. The line o£ his jaw tightened and he spoke awkwardly. "Glad I had a chance to sec you, Laurie, if only for a few minutes. Louis said to tell you hello." "You're not leaving town already?" Sieve nodded. "Got to gel back, to the classroom," He managed a grin. "That's where I belong, teaching history to a bunch of "But, Steve, why don't you stay and at least try to see another publisher about your book?" Panic swept through her. He couldn'1 go away. They had so many things to talk about. She'd missed him so and here he was now. Sieve don't go. She didn't think she could bear to let him go away again. Mark was showing him to the door and Ihcn there was the sounc of the door closing and Mark came back. There was a long silence in the room. No one Evoked at anyone else, and M.irk busied himself mix' ing more drinks. Finally Emmy said", "So fhat wa the reason you came back from Indiana looking like the world hat fallen apart." Her- unbelieving laughter rippled. "Oh. Laurie, hov couki you let yourself get in volv&d with someone like Ihat." No one said anything for a fe\ moments, .and thc-n Fletcher mut tcrcd, "I've got to be runnin along. Laurie, if you'll excuse me. He leaned and kissed her chee and polled her shoulder, 11 ] though he seemed a very nice sort of chap, darling." he whispered. After Fletcher was gone, Mar turned to Laurie and said, "Your 9y Irene Ern&orf • imV* ma i« MA M«. be other did a very thorough job, ,a.urie, didn't she? But I thought was going a little too far to in- oduce Fletcher as your fiance. 'hy didn't you speak up?" "Mr. Wysong knew, even before said that," Emmy put in, "that 'just wouldn't do. It wasn't rcal- y the book lhat brought him to ew York. 1 knew that the mo- lent, he Started talking. He'd ome to see Laurie. He'd come to mooth over whatever trouble herc'd been between them and I vanlcd to make sure he under- tood that I wasn't going to stand dly by and make the same mis- ake I mode when I marriec x>uis!" Mark had turned, his back to hem and was looking out of the window, bwl suddenly he wheclet round, to face them. There wa: n odd look on his face. "I think, Emmy," he said slow y and ftrmly, "lhat it's time wi vere truthful, for Laurie's sake and for the sake ot her happi ness." His mouth was drawn am here was a look of pain in hi eyes. "Why Mark," Emmy cried 'whatever do you mean?" IT MEAN just this, Emmy. Eve since Laurie has been ol enough lo be Interested in men you've been choosing them for he You picked out Fletcher for he lo marry because it was such suitable match," Mark Can sal quietly. "You must admit lhat Laur and Fletcher do make a love' couple!" Km my countered. "You've impressed it on he over and over that she must nevt make the terrible mistake yo made, by marrying someone lix LouisE" "And why shouldn't she pro by my mistake?" Km my bad lurm pale. "I don't know what you' trying to gel at, Mark." "Laurie, 11 Mark said, "yo 1 :)ther's big mistake was not in airy ing your father. It was in ving him up. She had promise< love, honor and c h c r i s h—to ng to him, and live his life, bu nen it came right down to doinj sh* was too much of a coward \e refused to meet him even half ay." You can see for yourself., nurie," her mother cried, "know- g Louis and knowing me, jusl o\v impossible it would havt ecn. I couldn't have stood it icre in Ridgeville, among nil lose horrid provincial people. 1 id to leave him!" "But you have regretted rt ever nee!" Mark put in softly. "You've 'ishtxl a thousand times that you ad stayed with Ixnris in spite of very thing. You've never really ecn happy wilh me," "Oh, Mark, yes, there've been mcs. -What arc you saying?" But Emmy knew what her hus- and was saying. Her eyes a&mit- ed it and now she walked toward iim, her glance fell. Even before ,Iark spoke, Emmy's question had icen answered. ITARK'S voice was calm but hi- sislcnt "You don't have to irctcnd any longer, my dear. I've known it for years and years- Ixjl's ace it. You were young and young people do impulsive things. But el's not let Laurie ruin her life, f she loves Steve, then his world s the place for her. Besides, she s T-ouis's child more than she i* yours. She T s like Louis in man? ways, Emmy, and there's no u&e n your trying any longer to make icr over into your own image." Mark, you're being sentimental and old-fashionrd." There was, however, a suggestion of a tremor n Emmy's voice. She stared at Mark, who returned her gaze for long silent moment. Finally, Kmmy turned to her daughter. There were tears in her eyes now 1 guess he's right, Laurie. 1 think you'd belter go and find Steve, if you're really in love wilh him." Laurie shook her hcnd. "What you both scorn to overlook," she said, "is the lacl that Sieve doesn't want me," OUT OUR WAY ALL 7f*s HOOP-A-DOOPA/ A A&our /MHCKLC WHKKUS, " WE HATE WHlCiaES TO PIECES/ .
