I was— well, worried." "You too, TedT- "Why me too?" •Well, I'm suspect No. I, Ted." Katy was conscious of her fingers tightening on the phone as sh« spoke, admitting she was frightened to Ted, without actually «y- ing so. Scared half to death— that was what the bus driver had !} said about Agnes Jerome, and •fls Agnes was dead. "Ted " .£j "Nonsense." Ted brushed Kaly's jj fears aside. "That questioning Is fj just routine stuff, Katy. Why ',j they even had me in to answer a n few." 3 "I know," Knty said wearily, '•• remembering that Dave Argus had known that she told Ted she was Koing to SpringfieW. "But why did they question you?" "Because I knew Agnes Jerome —in a vague son of way." Ted's voice sounded like a verbal Adtlie «m it*, nn. •-—.

She would much ralher fry ham an'l eggs and make codec and cat in Tront of the log Hrc Ted could JUild m the living room, but Ted was being kind ... as Dave Argus lad been kind, she couldn't help hinking, and somehow she remembered young Johnny Jerome saying, too, "I can't stand sympathy, Miss Elmo."

Like Johnny Jerome, she didn't want them not even Ted Jordan — feelinK sorry for her; she told herself that as she touched rouge to her checks, color to her lips. She tucked a rebellious tawny curl in Place, studying herself in u, e mirror. Except for her eyes, she might inve been dressing for any one of her past date with Ted or with Dave Argus. But she couldn't do anything about her eyes. In their blue depths, they still look-' haunted. Ted seemed not to notice. "Kntv you're a dream! Lei's—" "Let's stay home." She said it quickly, before the admiration in his face affected her. "I'd— ralher, Ted." The forced good humor fled. Ills eyes, his whole being sobered. All right, Katy. I was just trying to help."
