"And 1 didn't mean to press vou But 1 felt that 1 had to know " , Miss Jonnson relaxed. Her ex- cusef would nave sounded oltifu! . to a five-year-old But this quiet ,kindly mtin wa? making it easier for ner bv appearing, at any rate, to acuepl them She found her- sell liking him more with every turn of the wheels Kaye said carelessly "1 suppose ihere's a hotel where 1 ran spend the night? And I'm nop- inR vou'll have dinner with me." She started, and suddenly felt as silly and jitterj as one o£ her own school girb She goodness, what was the matter with her? Why this unreasoning terror of being seen in that par. ticular town with Adrian Kaye or. indeed, any man? Because of Mrs Symcs and the questions Mrs. Symes would certainly nut? Well, partly The shadow of Mrs. Symes hung darkly over her. making normal thought and action difficult, if not impossible. But to^some degree, she Knew, the terror, the near phobia, sprang from the fact that she hac. never been seen with a man. especially a stranger. And the town would talk, amusedly, gleefully even She could hear it in fancy. . "Now how about that? The schoolmarm. out with a fellow." ; "Think she's got herself a beau, at last?" •- "My dear you could have "knocked me down with a feather. •J simply couldn't believe it till 1 sow ii with my own eyes." Gossip, tinged with ridicule, •rising in her imagination like a bugbear. No. she wouldn't ha -e • peaceful moment. Yet she wanted • moment, many ol them ID truth, with Adrian Ktyt. But K v«i out of tbt quutloD. Somt- I how or other, she would ^iave to send him on his way "1 was asking about a hotel.' he reminded ner. "Oh!" She caught herself up. "Well, there's onlj one — the j Burgess House And *'s not very ! good Full of. 1 think you'd call . there 'drummers, i haven't been I there for ages, put I hear the food's terrible We're — well, a hick town, you see." He smiled. "I'm a hick myself n jwadays. And 1 don't mind drummers and bad food. The thing is. 1 want to spend this evening No. correction! 1 I want to spend this weekend, or as much as I can of it, with yo'i." Miss Johnson paled. The whole weekend! "B-But. of course," she faltered. "I want the same thing, i was only trying to think where you'd b n comfortable. Where I, w? " She stopped. TT was, far and away, the wildest idea she had ever had. Its magnitude, the implication Jt escapade and adventure and— yes. romance, rendered her momentarily speechless. That she, Cora Johnson, could so much as dream of such a thing virtually app&lled her. "Well?" Adrian said, In his gentle tone With the effort of her life, >he pulled herself together. "Adrian." she said carefully, "I'm going to suggest something that may sound perfectly outrageous. You mention the weekend. Well, luckilj. this is Friday and I've got the weekend free. So I-let's . spend it In the cityl" The last sentence came out In a kind of choking gulp. Regardless of the road. Kaye turned to stare at her And she felt warm scarlet rush to n*r che»k» Hetvtns! What * fool she wu to blurt Uki thatl Nat- urally the man would misunderstand. • • • VTISS CORA JOHNSONS tongue stumbled embarrassedly. "1 mean." she said. "I have a friend in the city—the woman 1 stay with in the summertime You could find a hotel and the city's only about two hours from here." "Why. that's a real inspiration," Adrian Kaye said quickly. "There are plenty of places to go there. And we can take m a show tomorrow IT] tell you what! We'll drive to your boarding house right now You throw what you'll need into a bag and we'll be off!" "Oh. dear!" Another hurdlt loomed "We can't do it that way. I'll have to take an evening train and meet you somewhere 1— well, you'll think me awfully silly. But maybe you know how small towns are?" He caught her meaning at onc«. "After Iberville. 1 certainly do. You'd nave a job explaining chasing off to the city with a guy nobody around here ever saw before. But we'll Hi it so there'll be no explaining. Now what's the next station down th« line?" "Somerset," she told him, feeling like a figure in a dark conspiracy. "About 10 miles away.' "And what time would your train leave?" "There's one at 7:18." "Good!" Kaye seemed to b« a practiced conspirator. "You just get oft at Somerset. Ill b* on the station platform." She was grateful for his quick perception. And he did not seem to think her behavior overly strange. Nor was his ego wounded by her manifest reluctance to display him here. It was as if he understood and sympathized witb that reluctance and wa> entering into this harmlessly-snide little arrangement enthusiastically, and uut of consideration for her. Miss Johnson decided that Adrian Kaye would always b« quietly considerate. Sensitive himself, h* would comprehend >nd respect the trait In othen. (I* WE BUY USED FURNITURE PHONE 3122 Wade Furn. Co.
