But Jimmy Craig, her fiance, is deeply hurt when she postpones their marriage and goes to the city, where a friend, Jane Blair, gets her a job as a stenographer in a broadcasting studio. Kay dislikes the two per- sons under whom she has to work ~Harold Blackmer, the produc- tion manager, and Theen~ Mor- ton, his secretary~but manages to get along with them. One Sat- urday morning, Jimmy suddenly turns up. CHAPTER V Jimmy was waiting for Kay at one. But somehow, the afternoon and eve- ning were not the same as those they had spent together in Pagosa. There were no delightful plans to be made-- for a church wedding, for their "dream" home. Of course, hand touched hand across the table as they dined that evening in a restaurant where Japanese lanterns flickered romantically. And they gazed deep into each other's eyes. But it was not the same as before. So, by and by, Kay found her hands lying list: less in her lap. And Jimmy's eyes were fixed on his plate, as if he didn't dare to raise them. "I like my work, Jimmy," Kay said. "I see so many im- portant people. Every one comes to MOX. Last week there was Sally Sun- deen, the movie star; and Vonberg, the explorer, with his trained dogs. They barked into the microphone just as if tlmy knew what they were doing And Jimmy, you've seen the paintings by Antes Gourand when Pagosa had an art exhibit at the library. He's one of Jane's best friends and awfully nice" Jimmy made no reply. Kay con- tinued nervously "And the folks in the office are grand Grace Elliott is my best chum. She's the girl y6u talked to first" "Who was the other girl--the one who showed me around the place?" "Oh, I was so excited I forgot to introduce you. That's Theena Morton. She's . .

Don't wait Time is like a gold miner's pan that is being shaken; a pan that sifts, sifts--takes all the gold. Kay, I know!" Jane, to whom tears seemed foreign, was crying. Later, after Jane had gone, Kay cried, too, as she slipped out of the room and went downstairs again. She'd call Jimmy--tell him she would go back. She dialed his number Jimmy would be surprised--happy. Of course, things could not be ex- actly as they had planned. Even Jane had agreed it would be cheaper if the family all lived together No, things would not be as they had planned. Ttfings-- ~hrubbery. A sunset of gold and r~e. "Kay, you're getting thin," Jimmy said anxiously "And I don't like that worry wrinkle in your forehead Honey, why don't you-drop all this? Let's go back to Pagosa. Why should we throw our happiness away like this?" "We're not throwing it away, Jim- my. We're just postponing it." "Until when!" Jimmy said bitterly "Kay--say you'll quit and come home with me!" He caught her in his arms. She trembled. Her whole being ached to say yes. She had had an exhausting day. Steady pounding on typewriter keys had brought a sharp ache up and down her spine. Copying small figures that danced before her eyes had made her head feel dull and heavy. Her lips almost formed the word. "Yes." But her mind flashed back to Pagosa and she was bending over a hospital bed, looking into her father's harassed eyes, which said so plainly, "Kay--Kay, what will become of us flOW?"
