She was at our house a great deal. As time passed she grew thin and pale and laughed less and less. She told ( me she often walked the streets * yather than stay with her mother- in-law • .{'hen Bob was not at home. My mother had grown up with Mrs. Finneran, and I had often heard her say that sh'e had never known anyone who could so quickly or so completely wipe the joy out of life as Peters Finneran. After Mr. TTinneran's death she took to expecting the worst in a big way. Now, if Flora appeared in a thin dress, even on the warmest afternoon, Mrs. Finneran would na.g her almost into Q frenzy, by insisting that she change to something warmer. If Flora coughed, she had to fight not to go to bed with a hot-water bottle. If Flora laughed, Mrs. Finneran would sigh that she too had laughed when she was Flora's age, but only too soon life had taught her to laugh on the wrong side of her mouth. "Flora, we've got to make plans, 1 ' I said. "Ypu can't go on Jiving with that awful woman. You just can't," But Flora, who had shown so much spirit and initiative in planning my supper dance, was now as spineless and planless as a half- drowned kitten. I talked over Flora's troubles with my intimates, and with the enthusiasm and generosity of youth we all agreed that it was up to us to help xthe two babes in the Woods. * * * TT was Charme and I who found A a sunny three-room flat in the Spangler Block for fifteen dollars a month. It was Maudie and Kay who organized the boys of our crowd to paint and paper the flat as a belated wedding present to Flora and good old Bob. Janet Phelps gave a linen shower, I a kitchen shower, and Kay a "what have you in the atyc you can spare" shower. Father agreed to pay the first two months' rent, and Annabelle offered to make the curtains and Amy to braid some rugs. How we kept it a surprise was nothing short of a miracle. We all worked like beavers, making a great lark of it, and in no time at all had the little flat shining and bright and sweet, completely furnished except for a kitchen stove and a refrigerator. "Why don't you get your cousin Sam to help?" Leah asked. "He has a whole store full of stoves. Your cousin Sam was never as black as ne'e painted. Anyhow it won't hurt you to aslc." Greatly daring and against Father's advice, I did ask him. Cousin Sam not only agreed to contribute the stove, a new one, but the refrigerator as well. By Friday everything was ready. Saturday evening Dick Foster went after Florabelle and Bob and brought them over to the flat, in the tiny entrance hall was a placard: "From Us All. God Bless You My Children." * * * JpLORA laughed and cried and ran from room to room, ad- mirine everything. < B6B flUfdTall the fight thingi, but I noticed that he seemed more embarrassed than pleased. He must have been asking himself how he would face his mother. We found out later that Mrs. Finneran had recently lost money in a bad investment. She now really needed the money Bob paid for his and Flora's board. _ I shall never altogether forgive Mrs. Finnetan for spoiling Flora's first pleasure in her new home, as I shall never forgive her for msking Bob feel a great sense of guilt for deserting her. Instead of insisting that his mother rent a room or two in her ample house, Bob compromised with ' his conscience by promising her ten dollars a month out of his meager salary. He was already pledged to pay his Aunt Mamie another ten a month toward the three hundred advanced for his honeymoon. That 'eft Flora and Bob around seventy- five dollars a month to live on. With the rent paid for two months they lived very well for a while. Flora was so proud of the flat that she wanted to show it off to everyone, and it seemed there was hardly a day that she did not have a number of us there for lunch or cards or dinner. Flora may not have been so expert with meats and vegetables, but she cer* tainly could make the most wonderful salads and desserts. She claimed her housework v,-as nothing. "Bobby washes the dishes, and t dry them." She laughed. "He loves to. If I allowed it, Bobby would do every bit of the work. He's a lamb pie. I don't know how I ever came to have such a wonderful husband—or such wonderful friends. I tell Bobby every day of my life that it is better to be 3orn lucky than rich. The greatest tick of all. is having you for a friend, darling Louise. . . ." I went back to school with Dora's praises and Flora's happy '.aughter ringing in my ears. I was jlowing with the virtuous pride of a good deed well done. It did not occur to me then or for many years that perhaps I, as much as anyone, was to blame for vhat happened between Flora and Bob.
