Doubt sounded in her tone.

"I'm sorry. The waiter and
IP a . will be up immediately."
1 e. .me issued further orders.
She wanted laundry and pressing
done here in the night, and she
demanded that it be finished be-
foie dawn. She needed lipstick
because she had forgotten her
own, and had the hotel service
send up a drug-tore clerk with
«ight different shades for her so-
li i tiori. She demanded that some-
bod;- come and take the several
bouquets of flowers out of 1220,
sent up as welcoming gifts for the
lady pa rr.grr that afternoon.
During thi interval of petulant
(i ii i ..•nil : nd ordering and of
getting herself refreshed, Loraina
thought of her victory n\ar Pat
Friday. The little - ip ii d Keen
squelched! It had b< en :■ o<i to
see Pat back ofT and I* • the
room, scared to de th ol a gun.
Loralne paused Iti'uaiii.v smoke,
and l onsider. ■ i t! ' .* of It. She
j looked at the euto.amlic pi to'
which she had used. Something
inside her told h* • th: f Pat Fri lay

deed. Pat had seemed a 1 ttIc dis-
dainful of the pistol. iii\;t. Hut

even so— "I'm a M le shaky,'
Loraine confessed. "What I need
is a drink."
She ordered liqtyr « ent tip, and
during the short vait fo it, s!k
felt herself eo really j tt .y. A
reaction had set in. to li ivc her
nerves jangling. It made her hate
Pat Friday more. Fri '■ y was the
< ause of oil this, obvlou ly.
Loraine grew bored w ith eon-
sider'ng it. ann as the drinks took
effect she felt spirited ae in. She
reached for the telephone. "Con-

"Hey, that you, Loraine? By

"Jimmee, I want to see you,
"Sure v ish I could. Say, we had
a swell t ight. Loi line. CV.ar as
crj'rtal nd trie way, but looked
like we nii^ht rue "t.:un a
storm. Any sort of blow or rain
there toright, hunli?"
"Jimmee. I am in this liutel
with you. 1'*o floors down."
He hurried down 1o meet her
in the mczzanire lounge. He was
j smiling brordly vviicn he ap-
p.oached, but when she kissed
him lingeiingly and clung to him.
he took her by the should era and
cared her away.
"Loraine!" he poke ?, ftly, but
in disappoiniment. "This liquor
business—I thought we agread—
look, people who By, and—"
She stopped him by snuggling
close and luughing in easy, tco-
intimate manner, and petting him
and murmtu-ing little cozy sounds.
"You didn't wait for poor littte
me!" She started to pout.*
"Listen, Loraine! That flight
was set for 11 o'clock!"
His tone, definitely ominous,
knocked the pout right out of her.
She resumed her softer techniqu#.
"We trade a swell run to Cleve-
land and a mob was there to wel-
•ome us." he said. "But when we
go i here to Chicago—wow, Lo
aine. they all but gave IK the
town! You should have been along
ilist to watch Pat. Say, you know
what? That kid has something! I
m< an, she has! She had stage
inght at first, but later she—"
Loraine kept control. Naively,
Captain Carr praised the other
111; no more than was due, surely,
but with more enthusiasm than
was necessary at the moment.
"Have you checked in on Fat, too?
Told her you were here, Loraine?"
"Jimmee, Miss Friday has ra-
il nad to Elmira."
"Vhat?" He was astonished
"But of course, Jimtnec! WhM
I found you had already gone, and
been forced to take her with you,
I came at once. She's gone back.**
"But—no! We can't—lode, Lo-
raine, we—that kid's worn out!
Hasn't slept in twe nights, and
anyway X—look, how'd she go
"She went on the same plane
that brought me, darling"
"What plane? There's no com-
mercial flight at this hour, or
Loralne smiled ever-eo-sweetly
and intimately now, snuggled her
biuiia curls in the hollow of his
• !ioulder. She was wise enough to
know she could spike bad news by
rulraitting it first.
"Sweetheart," she purred, "I'm
at."aid little me was naughty. Just
a little-itty bit. I went to your
desk, back home, and got one of
the order blanks, and filled it in
foi a plane. And I—" she giggled
a little, sweetly, "I signed your
name. I knew you wouldn't ccre."
He sort of stiffened, automati-
"Loraine," he breathed, frown-
She giggled again, possessively,
sr.ugtf'ng him very close and pet-
ting his firm young cheek, as a
fiancee perhaps has a right to do.
There was no argument he could
