Muriel slapped Alice lightly on her bare fornarm. "Don'l be so serious, my dear. It is funny and so are you. The guy — my husband — merely puts his arm around you .so now you're beating yourself up Well, slop it." "A-all right If you're not too annoyed." ".My enodnessl" Muriel Halleck seemed io lose interest. "Why should I be annoyed? .I'm over (he sophomore stage. What's tha you've got there? Cigarcls? Give me one and forget this nonsense." Alice Pine extended the -Tgc, struck a match. Muriel's heat -bent over her cupped hands, "Now let's go up to the house, she said. "But, for the record my meeting broke up early. La Tremayne, who's Aisually inde structible, hat! a headache. v/hen 1 found nobody home here 1 took a walk. So my spyinj wasn't premeditated." "I never thought K was," said Alice. "And I still feel like a heel," "AHce, I told you to stop iL Come on, now! Think of somc- ihing else to say." Alice made an effort. "He was telling me about this job in Providence." "Oh, that?" Muriel snapped her ngers. "I haven't the slightest yinpathy for him on • that score. •rent is doing it strictly on his wn hook. He knows darn well e doesn'l have to." "But he wnsn't complaining," Mice said quickly. "He shouldn't/' said Muriel. Alipc didn't reply. She had tn- 'olved herself in the Elallecks' iifnirs quite enough for one evening. Now all she wanted was to jet to her own room, and begin hinking things out. For she recognized that she had to think, clearly, sanely. And the knowledge, perhaps, made Muriel's tolerant attitude he Harder to bear. I( Muriel stumbling upon what must have seemed to her a strange situation o say the least, had flown into a rage, become accusing, this sense of guilt might not be so strong 3ul Muriel had laughed it ofT. Walking across the lawn, Alice felt like some kind of nelly thief • * • E did not escape for another hour. Muriel insisted upon getting beer from the refrigerator They carried it into the study where she regaled Alice with the foibles of the Tolliver Garden Club. It was as if the episode o the beach had never been. Upstairs at last Alice threw of a bathing suil.completely dry no\ and got into her nightgown. Sh knew, however, that she woul< not sleep. Wide-eyed in the darkness, sh gradually made herself face th truth. The truth was startling. She was dangerously, incxpli caljjy close to being in love wit Brent Halleck. With a man fo whom al first she hat! fell dislik and, later, the next thing to r put si on. Or, had the dislike and repulsio been illusory, tricks of her outc mind to camouflage the real work ings of the mind's core? She didn't know. Bui she sa now that her interest in Brent h ocn inordinate from the bcgin- il!- S>ic had been nllcrly un- jle—Alice twisted on the bed, ressintf b;ire Iocs againsl Oie ootboard—lo regard Brent Halck passively. That was liow'lt had been. And icre was some psychological the- ry (hot dislike—hatred even— m! love were actually nkin, need- ig only some slight adjustment of ic delicate scale to throw the bal- nce one way or the other. But ould she, Alice Pine, hitherto onnal and sensible, be lulling in ove wilh a man capable of doA- ite cruelly? And yet the Idea of cruelty Idti't square with Brent's low- oiced, sincere-sounding request or her lo see lo Rick. Bui nothing squared. And Brent was a creature or moods. Tonight ~ had revealed a softer one. But ne could summon others. She bought again of his face, black vith anger, confronting the surly Sloan during the tree episode. At thai point sleep actively mocked her: She got up, lit a cignret, and a solution seemed to come. • • * 2HK would pack tonight. Then in J Ihe morning she would have an honest showdown. And not with Brent. Wilh Muriel. "Because T can't slay hero," she jncouraged her own idea. "Feeing as I—I think I do." But a more lucid interval fol- owed. And she saw that she :ould not walk out of Orosvenor Point without looking like a prc- sumptuous fool. Brent had done nothing more than to infer that, under other circumstances, he might possibly liavn been fond of her. On the strength -of which, phis her own nebulous indeterminate feelings, she was considering a showdown with Muriel. Well! Tonight, Muriel had laughed at her. But if she went through with this program tomorrow, Muriel would hoot. Alice stumped out the cigaret with fingers that trembled slightly. She had come close, alarmingly close, to making a complete idiot of herself. Nonetheless, it was }usl as well that Brent Halleck was leaving, (T* Rf Continued) The United Nations World Health Organization has set up an Expert Committee on plague.
