that she used for an office Put
looked at her face in n tiny mir-
ror. She wondered if her happi-
ness could be seen in her eyes as
a flag. Soon it wouldn't be a se-
cret. In another month they would
announce the engagement. She
could imagine the words staring
ut her from the Sunday papers:
"Mrs. Dennis McGraw announces
the engagement of her daughter,
Patriciu Mury, to Laurence Kent."
Until then it was her own. Hers
and Larry's. She went back to her
work, her fingers flying over the
keys, ploying a melody of promise.
Intermittent showers came and
went while she hurried through
her work. And then out on the
street, running to the shop where
she had seen the brightly colored
breakfast set, gay flowers against
a cream background, squut cups,
a funny cream and sugar set, tea
towels In plaids, and n few odd
plates rich in the shades of old

Lorry felt the thrill she did in
furnishing their home. He left it
up to her.
"You'll have to live with them,"
he had said, "whatever you get
will be all right with me, I have
enough to do talking colors and
fabrics when I'm selling cars."
Yet she knew he liked nice
things: rugs, crystal, pictures and
clothes. During the winter social
season ho had told her of some of
the big homes In the west end
where he had gone on business.
"Young Dottie Barnes got a new
convertible yesterday," he had
once told her. "A debut present
from her old man. I took it out
and drove her around for a trial
•pin. What a house and what a
girl. She's young, but she suro
knows how to wear clothes. Not
bad company either."
FW a moment n stab ot jealousy
had gone through her, and then
she had silently laughed it away.
It was she whom he loved, she
whom ho had chosen. With her
arms filled with bundles *he

for her bus, scrumbled on a> an-
T.IER eyes narrowed ns she
caught a glimpse of a familiar
coupe. Then a smile curved her
lips. Funny how in all thut maze
of traffic she could reo but one
car; should recognize that bumped
place on the rear left fender, and
the way the license plate hung
crookedly down near the bumper.
The bus sped up and she caught
a glimpse of Larry: his felt hat
turned down at the familiar an-
gle, his collar up around his chin.
Then the cars separated and he
was lost ahead lit the rain, cutting
in and out with the speed he
loved. Site hoped he would be
careful. So many accidents hap-
pened in the rain. Probably she
was too traffic conscious, she told
herself, from working in an at-
mosphere of reckless driving,
speeding, illegal parking phrases
The bus slowed down with an
abruptness thut threw her against
the window. A scene flushed
across her eyes, changed, melted
into n new picture, but not, before
certain things stumped themselves
indelibly on her consciousness.

bumped fender cutting out dnn-

at her like machine-sun bullets.

evolved into two limp figures,
overshadowed nil else.
