"Just don't take out your little disappointments on me, Roy," she said firmly. "And don't be so sickeningly sophomoric about it." "Sophomoric!" I was slung. "What else?" said Lucy. "Angry at women. H's like being angry at the theory : of relativity. You don't know anything about either one. The truth Is' you're angry at just one woman." : : "All right," I said. -I admit it I'm angry at Just one woman.* "Then don't take it out on me." "I suppose I'm principally angry at myself," 1 said by way of making amends. "If I hadn't written that campaign biography we wouldn't be In this mess." "Nobody blames you, Roy," the said. . ; "I blame myself," I said. "I dont suppose we ought to wake up the Governor for any more bad newi. He needs a good night's sleep."

"We both had a job to do." "I know." You're right. You're entirely right" She smiled. Her palm touched my cheek lightly, then she bent toward me and her lips met mine. It was a warm, tender, friendly kiss, casually bestowed. Or so it seemed. And it was casual, fox Ih'e moment it took me to absorb its impact and react, then it wasn't casual in the least. Her feet came allogclher off the steps and her arms were tight around my neck. 1 heard her whisper. "Roy," very softly, and II was not the familiar voice of Lucy Strawn. and it was not the Lucy Strawn I knew who lay warmly In my arms.

Lucy was blushing violently, and my face was hot. \l said, "We thought you were asleep, Governor. We didn't .want to wake you." 'That's understandable," he said, still smiling. "But It happens I was listening for you to come In, Roy. W* received a t*le«ram from Bill Even. He's flying here, and his plane gets In at a quarter to midnight I thought perhaps you could meet him." ;' "Yes," I said. "Sure." The Governor's hands rested deep In the pockets of his dressing gown and he looked tired. "How did things go, Uoy?" he asked. "Not good, Governor." "Yes, I expected that." Lucy said softly, "The only good thing to report is that Roy struck another blow for your campaign, Governor. He clipped Clyde." Television- Ton ite.
