Mission accomplished, as we used to say in the Air Force. I have a class down the hall, and 1 should be getting back. Saturday's my busy day." She rose, and put a red wool scarf, of the type I believe is known as a fascinator, over her head. She tied the ends under that Viobby white chin. "Well, I didn't come here to be Insuring, but if I was, then good! You got nerve, butting into my private life, telling my husbanc he's got brains, and he's gonna get somewhcres some day. He had to lie about his education to get job with Acme Truck, and he won' ^tver be able to get into anything Pfso. .That's awright, there's plenty money in trucking. If only h don't waste his life setting aroun wi'h these books you been shovin at him." "Look." I said, trying to spea quietly, "you must not be feclin well today. Go back to the bar where you came from and have a ccuple more drinks. I'll just for( get you came—I'll never mention [ it to David. And 1 don't think you i will either, because 1 think you'll • 'be a?hamed of it tomorrow morn: 'ing." < Shf! picked up her coat and flung 1 it over one arm. "That's what you [ .think," she said.

Then one afternoon a feeling akin to panic struck me as a clicked the door shut and sat down to look at my mail. Christmas Eve. This was to have been Cathy's and my first Christmas in ur own house. There was a letter in her hand- vriting. The envelope bore "a New York postmark but no return ad- ress. Inside was n block print, vbich I recognized as her work, of a deer in the snow. And a printed ignalure—Kathleen Valois. I prowled and pounced around he narrow rooms, hating her. •'inally I Ihrcw on my stormcoal and boots and slammed out of the apartment. 1 a vacant lot where a man was selling Christmas tr^es, and for lack of anything else to do I bought a scrawny, lopsided little pruce. Cut down considerably anc braced in a bucket, the tree suddenly took on a satislyingly Christ- massy shape. I tied Christma! cards In the branches with tinse ribbon, taped more Christma cards over the bucket, and stacked my prcscnls under the tree. As I undressed for bed, I lol Icred near the tree and examine* cards. Abruptly, it struck me how many of them had pictures of tin children or family groups. People my age. People I'd gon to school wilh, people I'd known in the service. Here I was, 29. and I The years stretched before me, the years of prissy bachelorhood. My head was pounding d'.illy. I took two aspirins and went to bed I ran to push the button that released the lock downstairs. Then I darted back to the bedroom and threw on my bathrobe, and waited on the landing, with a strange mixture of premonition and doubt, listening as footstep* slowly came nearer. Finally the steps ro«nded th« last curve, and there stood David, looking up at me from the boltom of the night of stairs to the fourth Boor. He had » cardboard carton tied with rope in one hand, and a big greasy brown-paper package in the other. "Hello," he called in a low voice. "May I come up for awhile?" I thought he swayed a little. "But certainlyl Come cm hi! Here, I'll help you." I hurried down the stairs and took one of the bundles. "That's for you," laid David, a* he panted upwards, "I won H in raffle.

I put hia coat on a hangar and hung it on the shower rod In the balhioorn. Dry your h»ir on this," I said, handing him a thick turkish towel. He rubbed his head abstractly. "I feel like a heel, making you this way," he began. "Oh, I wasn't asleep. Fact Is, 1 was having a bad time. Glad you came. Why oV» t you just spend the night?" 'Sure you wont mlncT?
