XIV 'T'HE maid Millie, running true \a form, had evidently failed to mention Adrian's appearance. For Mrs. Copeland swallowed a story about a phone call received ' at the school without question. j It seemed that a woman with whom Miss Johnson had become friendly in the city was now seriously ill. Miss Johnson was go, ing in to see what she could do. 'It had happened very suddenly . and distressingly. She didn't I know when (embellishing her !prevarication) she'd been so up- iset. I Mrs. Copeland listened sympathetically and advised a good I dinner, against the trip. Miss •Johnson said that she couldn't eat 3 thing. But might she have • cup of tea in her room? She would drink it while packing. The tea duly arrived, escorted iby the happily half-conscious Milli«. One glance at Millie's blank face convinced Miss Johnson. Incontrovertibly Millie •would have been put to it to remember anything that had transpired five minutes ago. let alone an occurrence of the afternoon. Shortly before seven, while the •hoe personnel roistered In the dining room. Miss Johnson slipped downstairs carrying • small bag. Drawing a breath ol relief outside the house, and with time to kill, she walked the short distance to the station She bought a ticket to'Somerset «nd the train, for once, wat on time. 'ISS CORA JOHNSON did not Know it. but there .<vas color M in her normally pale cheeks today and a flash In her eyes that, for the months just past, had been very lustreless. She could, however, feel an unwonted springiness In her step a> she suiried her favorite haunts. Some were celebrated "city sights," others had no significance except thai she liked them and she hoped Adrian would like them too. Apparently Adrian did. Wherever they went, he seemed to en joy himself. He was interested during their excursions through art galleries and museums; docile when she deviated into side streets where the shop windows held little of masculine appeal. But at dinnertime Adrian assumed command. Despite her protests, he insisted upon a res> taurant whose prices chilled her blood. "Good Heavens!" she exclaimed. "This is sinful extravagance." "Madam," said Adrian, "we don't just eat tonight. We dine." The show, a sparkling comedy, brought the end to a sparkling day Back in the decorous hotel (for women only) upon which she had finally decided in preference to her summer rooming house. Miss Johnson could scarcely believe that anything like It had come to her. Already this day had begun to stand out. bright and shinini. among the days of her memory It had been perfect. An interval spent in another world, as It were. • world curiously proof against cloud and shadow, But with the comfort and distraction of Adrian's companionship removed, cloud and shadow returned. The boarding house, that hidebound little town, Mrs. Symcs and dealings her own shameful with Mrs. Symes. swarmed blackly Into her mind. She tried to fight them oft: to cling desperately to thoughts of the glowing Interlude in which she was living. It w>s no us*. Presently sh« did escape, for lhat nltrht at least.

The man was really most considerate. And he sounded truly interested. It had been many a year since anyone had shown sincere concern for Cora Johnson's comfort. "Why, how nice of you! I'm fine, thanks. How is your hotel?" "Very luxurious. Beats the farm all to hollow. Well, I won't keep you. But . . . did you enjoy our day?" "Oh, Adrian, it was grand." On Sunday afternoon, after a day of poking leisurely about the town, they went into a tearoom. There were not many other patrons and they found a corner to themselves. "I'll have to be starting home soon," she said, with genuine reluctance. Adrian stirred his tea. "No hurry. I'll get you back early this evening. Only I wish I didn't have to." • • • E knew that he meant It And a warm little glow stole over her. She said, impulsively, 'I wish so, too." His eyes, an odd look in, them, met hers. "Do you mean that, Cora?" "Yes. I do. I've loved this weekend. It's been . , . oh, such fun being with you." "Then," he spoke almost reflectively, "it might go on being fun always. 1—well. 1 honestly don't see why It wouldn't work." "What. Adrian?" She tried to sound careless, but a premoni- ;ory glimmer brought a suggestion of tenseness to her tone. He smiled amusedly. "You know, of course Women always do. But, that aside, I like you very much, Cora Johnson. And I think you like me. I also think we've a great deal In common. And maybe that's all we'd need; for a start." Adrian," though warned by iremonltlon, she still felt rather 'tint, "are you asking me to marry you?" • "I am," taM Adrian simply.
