But it secms grange Harry, that you should Iiave had a cousin all these years Jirid never mentioned him," Louise "I've not seen him since we were Ijoys. He went to Paris and 1 liever expected to see him a«ain '.really had forgotten all about "But how did he come to eo to 3 a ris? " _. "It happened that we were both • wnhancd at 15. Uncle Daniel took I is in. one after the other and I jroughl us up and supervised our J.-ducation. When we finished the I xmrse at the Academy, he gave i.-i^our choice of going on with our (/••cation or starting in business |/inccnt said he wanted to study •irt and I decided to go into busi- icss. Uncle Daniel sent him to >ans and got me well started in l ln °®ce. Vincent never came "I wonder why he's coming I vow." "• "He didn't say. He'll probably I ell us tonight. Give him a good I tinner anyway," I Louise thought about Vincent all I lay, thrilled at the idea of meeting li man who must certainly be so- ihisticatcd after so many years in "aris, She wondered about Vincent's J ppearance. Would he be hand- I ome? U'ould he wear a beret? J She dressed with care in her I icst party dress. She looked in ti>e I nirror anxiously to see the final 1 esult and laughed at herself tor 1 worrying. . "Anybody'd think you were a I Irl dressing for her first ball. i n I lead of being an old woman, mar| ied 17 years." She gave her head a saucy toss and added, "Wen, I must say, my dear, you don't look your age." She was busy In the kitchen when the doorbell rang at 6 o'clock. Eleanor went to the door and soon ran down to tell her that Vincent Weston was in the parlor. • • • J^OUISE threw off her apron and cost a hasty glance at herself in the mirror over the dining room mantel. She had felt all day that this visit was important—that it would open to her an avenue of escape. She was wide-eyed and expectant as she entered the parlor. She Immediately felt a shock of disappointment. Her cousin-in-law was not tall and handsome but decidedly sttibby. He was staring up at her mother's portrait and turned on her rather fiercely. 'They're all wrong, these shadows. The flesh lints are good- very good. The background—a little too flat. There's power here. H should never have been left unfinished." 'It was my first portrait. 1 was working on it just before my marriage. I never was able to do any more to it after that." "You must learn to draw," Vincent said hruskly. "And study your shadows." "I'm afraid I'll never do any more painting," Txmise said sorrowfully. Vincent grunted. "I suppose 'oustn Harry's just the same as tie used to be. No imagination. Why did you ever marry him? You didn't need to marry when you could paint like that" "Well, 1 suppose every woman wants to marry," said Louise, feeling the weakness of her argument. Vincent grunted again and' stared at her disconcertingly. She was relieved to hear Harry's key in the rioor and colled him in. At first Louise was afraid that I during the dinner Vincent would bring up the subject of art in general and of her painting in particular, but apparently h« knew his cousin in spile of many years' separation. He spoke ol Paris with s brittle humor that fascinated the young people and caused Louise no embarrassment whatever. Harry, coming home at 6 o'clock the next evening, was surprised and startled to find Eleanor presiding over the kitchen. "Mother? Oh, she went out with Uncle Vincent. We were so surprised when he appeared at about 2 o'clock." "And where did they go?" asked her father without enthusiasm. "Why, it seems that Uncle Vincent has a picture in some museum in New York—a galicry he called it. He was anxious to have Mother see it. She didn't want to go at first, but I told her I could start the dinner. 1 knew she was really dying to go." • * • r PHEY had nearly finished dinner when Louise came in with Vincent. Harry was not a bit happy. He had found a dinner alone with his children quite an ordeal. It was the first time that such a situation had arisen. The children had treated him like an honored guest, with the aloof courtesy they would reserve for strangers. He was feeling much abused when Louise entered, glowing and joyous. "Well, Eleanor, dear," she said ignoring her husband, "did you save anything for us? We're a little late, but I knew you'd get along all right." She turned to smile swcelly at Harry's unhappy face. "We had tea in such a wonderful place. I hope Vincent stays a long time. He's promised to show me all around New York." Eleanor hurried in with plates of hot soup, and Harry did not need to make any comment Louise knew that to please Harry she should have come in like a :ulprit, full of apologies. But she Nad had a new experience that had thrilled her, excited her—best of all, had restored her self- respect. Vincent had shown her delicately but unmistakably that t« found her desirable.
