What a speciaJ day! My first disappointment came w. r ith the absence of any greeting from John ID the early mail. Could he have forgotten? Tfce traitorous thought came, unbidden, into my rxenct as I made th« bed. and 1 tried to banish H quickly. as If. I had been caught harboring ft«itives trom a chain gang in my cellar. "What's the mettcr. dear?" John asked anxiously, as I all but dumped his coffee in his lap. "Nothing." 1 replied tartty. Wii^n the time came to leave for school, i offered my cheek to John as if it were only a cardboard facsimile of the same, and was furiously enraged when' he didn't even notice the diflorenr-e. J arrived home in time for office hours, and after a hurried sandwich in the kitchen, went right to work, "This Is what I really atn," I raged inwardily as I smiled sweetly at Mrs. Giglione's twins, and commented cheerfully on Mr Hansen's fractured foot: "A^slave In his house! Someone to work for him!" "What on earth's the matter? John whispered from time to time "What happened?** But I was set on dying for my _ cause. "Nothing,'* 4 snarled. Un/ortunately, It was a very busy day. Following afternoor hours, John had to rush out on some calls. He phoned finall from the hospital to say he wa . detained on a ward case, an would cat there, so I needn't wai dinner. "As li I want diimerl" thought. IT wasn't until after evenln hours, about 9 o'clock, that w ultimately had a chance to talk. "Now " said John firmly, cor g me in the treatment room efore the door even really cJosed *hind the last patient "What's all about? What's wrong?" My pride spoke up again, S'othing at all." I repeated ^ioorn- y, sou nd i ng like Bette Davis in histrionic death scene. I tried to tree my hand, John lid determinedly. "That's what ou said all day!" Then oe hanged his lone of voice. Please, darling," he pleaded. **I lougn we were going to share very thing," The new attack upon my for- icr resolution* unnerved .TIC, and ly defenses crumpled. "It's OUT ixth-monib anniversary," 1 ftob- >ed into the ottlce towel, "a whole alf yearl And you forgoU" John looked as stricken as ff he had just nenrd himself accused nd found guilty of the rnost seri- >us crime in the book. "Oh. sweetheart." he said, when ic lound nis voice, "I'm sorry don't know how it slipped mo mind. Won't you forgive me?" "Only six months." 1 moaned starting to cry again, "and you don't care for me any more!" "I do," he said, speaking more loudly. "You don't. You dont love me or you wouldn't ignore me," was approaching lite height of my own crescendo, like a me soprano reaching for high C, "Oh oh," I wept. Just then the doorbell soundei piercingly above our noise, am we automatically ceased arguing like the sudden dispersal of sid walk brawlers at the sound ol police siren. In the unexpectet silence, the doorbell rang again. "Want to play possum?" Jon recovered first. "Should I ignor it?" "You get it," I said to John, hnr ricdly wiping my eyes, and blow ing my nose in the towcL "I'll b right out." \V HEN I came into the Hvin room a few minutes late* Bo id Afjnea were seated on (h< tjc'h each looking very much ike the whale must have aflei he sallowed Jonah, 'We've got something *o tell ou," Bob said, with supresscd xcitement, and my apathy lifted little. Watching the expression ot leased importance on Bob's face ow, I asked. "You don'V realty mean you're getting . , . T H 1 aused In astonishment. 'Married," they both concluded. We are." And soon." said Agnes. Her ace was flushed and prettier than *lorc. There was a new confluence and happiness in hw voice, md she seemed to nave acquired he courage to use It. **T'rn not ,oing to lei aim change his mind," he Eaughcd gaily, bul with a hint serious purpose In her Jest 'He mignl get awayj" Bob grinned self-consciously, while I whispered to John: "Close vour mouth/' Then the propcc- ivc groom said: "Now. Aggie, you know I'm stuck for good." in so aiucus a tone that even 1 Raped. Then Agnes said. "\Ve wanled you iwo to be the first lo know. except lor our [nmilies. ol course berausc—well, you've both been kind ol an inspiration for us right along," Just before they left, Agnes :urned bac:k to me impulsively and said. "I hope that Bob and 1 will be as happy a? you and John." 1 was obviously emotionally overcome by this final remark. but not in the way 'Agnes thought. Ah. il you only Knew!" 1 ten like saying, like the disillusioned woman o[ the world 1 now knew myself to be. Bul John hurried forward, and spoke before any evidence of my demoralization could be noticed: "I nape you will be very happy. Agnes." tie said a little sadly, and closed the door. After their departure, the argumentative wmrl was primarily out of my sails, and it seemed definitely awkward to return, at this point, u> the scene ol the crime. "Well," said John to my stiff back, "imagine that!" (To Kf Ccr- 'i Female Help Wanted NEED EXTRA CASH? Make It easily!
