For once his eyes, gleaming in the half-light, did riot appear sardonic. Instead, they seemed troubled. "Sensible place to be tonight." He indicated the water. She. picked up her towel. ". thought you were out somewhere. He shrugged. "I did take _ drive. But I hadn't any place to go. So I parked down at the em of .the road and then"—he peere< at her suddenly—"was that you singing?" "Afraid so.'' She gave an embarrassed laugh. "If you call it singing when I can't carry a note.*" : : "I liked it," Brent said. : She glanced at him quickly. Bui .behind his pipe, his face was seri ous, A moment passed, with Bren puffing silently. Alice reached fo her robeV"Wcflf I Think I 'sleep now.* ; • He took the pipe from his mouth "Don't go just yet, Alice." "Why?" She was a little zled. His voice had been unusua Almost—well, .timid. "Because I'd like to talk to you -She hesitated, without under 'standing the hesitation. For da shej had studiously avoided Brei "I don't know if I should stay," I ie said doubUulry. "Muriel may e back. She may want me for ornething." He laughed. "You don't know e Garden Club. When those em ales get together, they're good or half the night. Besides, what Muriel is back? We could still «ilk, I suppose." All right" She sat down, ulled on her sandals. "But not for ong. What did you want to say 0 me?" » » » * •>RENT dropped down by her. "I - 1 -* want to tell you something, said slowly. "Then I'm going ask a favor. But 1 don't know ust how to do either. I'm afraid I'll sound like doublctalk to you. 1 "Naturally, I don't understand. Why can't you just speak out?" "This is one time when that's difficult. So I'll merely tell you even if it sounds trite, tbat the way a thing looks isn't necessarily he—the way if is," "That is doubletnlk," Alice said 'Well, 1 warned you. And that's about as clear as I can be." What's--worrying you, Brent?' she asked, pointblank. You, in a way," he said sur prisingly. "But if you're not wor •ying about anything, I'll skip i too." She thought she understood Brent was uncertain whether sh knew the truth about w^at bai Happened in the hallway. And h was probing to find out. ,. : Reme'mbermg, Alice felt a resurgence of her anger and disgus For a moment she was on the pom of accusing him; of pouring fort a torrent of blistering condemna tory words. Unwittingly Brent forestalled possible outburst by adding: "Yo won't understand this either. Ht I could use a little help about now Alice." Her eyes flashed to his. She wai isplcious of Brent Hnlleck. But, might, he seemed different. She ad never known him in this ibducd mood. Unconsciously, she *aned closer to him. 'I'll be very, glnd to help you, rent Any way I can." His fingers touched hers in the md, but went away immediately. Thanks. You can, maybe, for the est of th« time you're with lurtel." "There's' something you want ie to do?" x "Yes." He sat up, hugging his nees. "You've been wonderful o young Rick, Alice. I can't tell ou how much T appreciate it." • • • ' . 'OMING from Brent, this should ' have sounded insincere. Somehow it didn't. "But"that's been a pleasure,*. Alice said. "I'm crazy about the child." "Well, please go on being that way. I'm sorry I can't be more explicit. But sort of see., to him, will you?" "Certainly. But we all will, won't we?" 'No," said Brent. "I won't, most of the time. I've been dickering for a job, Alice, for some time. Mow it's come through. In Provi- Jence. That means I'll only b« here week-ends from now on." "But why a job?" she asked, In surprise. "Isn't your painting •'• full-lime job?" "Full-time, yes. But not fully compensated. Frankly, I haven't, done so well since the war. And now"—a determined nole came into his voice—"I've got 'to make money." "But what kind of a job. Brent?" "In Perkins and Grant, an advertising agency .up there,", he told her.
