But lt never seemed as tf-" she shut
lier eyes and shivered-"as If-this

"This!" he echoed nghnst.
"Oh, I think this ls punishment,"
Cherry continued, lu the same lifeless,
There was a silence. The rain
dripped and dripped from the red
woods, the room in which they stood
was In twilight, even nt noon. Peter
could think of nothing to say.
About two weeks after the accident
there was a change tn the tone of the
physicians who had been giving al
most all their time to Martin's case.
There was no visible change in Mar
tin, but that fact In ItscJf was so sur
prising that lt was construed Into a
definite hope that he would live.
Not as he had lived, they warned
his wife. It would be but a restricted
life; tied to his couch, or permitted,
at best, to move nbout within a small
boundary on crutches.
"Martin !" his wife exclaimed pite
ously, when this was first discussed.
"He has always been so strong-BO
independent ! Ile would rather- ne
would Infinitely rather he dead!" But
her mind was busy grasping the pos
sibilities, too. "ile won't suffer too
much?" she asked fearfully.
They hastened to assure her that
the chance of his even partial recov
ery was still slight, but that lu case
of his convalescence Martin need not
Another day or two went by In the
silent, rain-wrapped house under the
trees; days of quiet footsteps and
whispering, and the lisping of wood
fires. Then Martin suddenly was con
scious, knew his life, languidly smiled
at her, thanked the doctors for oc
casional ease from pain.
"Peter-I'm sorry. It's terribly fer
you-terrible !" he said In his new,
hoarse, gentle voice, when he first saw
Peter. They mnrveled among them
selves that he knew that Allx was
gone. Rut to Cherry, |n one of the
long hours that she spent sitting be
side bim and holding his big; weak,
strangely white hand, he explained
one dny. "I knew she was killed," he
said, out of a silence. "I thought we
both were I"
"How did she ever happen to do lt?"
Cherry said. "She was always so sure
of herself-even when she drove fast '"
"I don't know," he answered. "It
was all like a flash, of course! I
never watched her drive-I had such
confidence In her !"
His lo'vrcst dropped; she saw that
the tide of pn'n was slowly rising
again, and glanced at the clock. It
was two ; he might not have relief
until four. In his own eyes she ?aw
reflected the apprehension of her own.
"You might ask Peter to play some
of that-that nimbly stuff lie was
playing yesterday?" he suggested.
Cherry, only too happy to have him
want anything, to have him helped by
anything, flew to find Feter. Busy
with one of the trays that were really
beginning to interest and please the
invalid now, she told herself that the
house was a different place, now thnt
one nurse was gone, the doctors com
ing only for brief calls, and Uie dear,
familiar sound of the old plano echo
ing through the rooms.
Martin came from the flory furnace
changed In soul and body. It was a
thin, gentle, strangely patient man
who was propped In bed for his
Thanksgiving dinner, and whose pain
worn face turned with an appreciative
smile t,6 the decorations and Ute gifts
that made his room cheerful.
The heavy cloud lightened slowly
but steadily; Martin had a long talk,
dreaded by Cherry from the first hours
" of the accident, with hts physicians.

She moved her lips as If she was

wrenched her hands free from his,
and laid her arms nhout his neck. Her
wet cheek was pressed to lils own. and
he put his arms tightly about the lit

breathing more quietly, she said
again: "PeterI We can never dream

"We shall dream lt again," ho cor
Cherey did not answer for a long
