"Thank me?" said Trevor, Casting
her a casual look. "What for?"
Andrea's lips trembled. If only the
ire hadn't happened just when it did,.
she thought, If only it had given hint
tline to find her, to take her in his
arms I "For saving me," she answered
"For satviig nothing," afilrnied Tre
vor. "For saving the nothing that is
left of your beauty and freshness and
honor after the touch of thit beast."
Overwhelming shame stained her
cheeks; she felt all that was noble and
generous within her shriveling Into a
strangling knot. She tried to speak,
to protest against his htrdiness and in
justice, but site could only gulp. For
hours they sat in absolute silence, and
gradually the cold that had struck her
heart spread through all her body un
til her teeth began to chatter.
"Why tire you doing itt?" asked
Trevor sliarply. "It isn't really cold."
"I'm d-d-d-dong it b-b-be
cause I c-c-enn't help it," chattered
Andrea. "I am c-c-cold !" Sihe
pressedl herself tigainst his body, as
though she begged for his arms around
her. lie drew away front her.

and turned upon 1he ti accusing eyes

At this point in her story Trevor for

bowl of his pipe in a grip that made
his knuckles show white. She could
feel him listening with his wh'ole tense
body. She hurried on to her, climax;
to the description of her strategy In
removing the clents and of MacClos
ter's terrifying attack. She even re
peated some of his words. "He said,
'Waiting up for me, dearie?' and then
I drove the nails into his hands and
when he snatched them back, I hit him
across the head and he fell. And then
I heard you coming. I thought I had
gone mad, that it was not with my ears
but with the longing of my heart that
I heard you coming. When I called
and you answered I forgot that I had
ever known fear; I knew that I was
safe. forever and forever."
"Good girl," said Trevor hitskily. He
reachied out and patted her hand but
his thoughts were not altogether with
her ; they were lingering behind, hov.
ering over the scene of her elemental
battle with MacCloster as though he
sought to steep his soul In that recol.
lection in an elfort to drown for once
and all time the ineiory of twenty
four hours of torturing Jealousy.
"So you're not jealous any more, are
you?" pleaded Andrea.
".ealous!" exclaimed eternal man
m11patiently. "Who said anything about
Jealousy? It's one rotten quality that,
thank God, I don't possess. It's the
canker-worm that eats into the heart
of trust. A man that feels it, deineans
the woman lie loves."
"I Iow extraordinary," inurnmured
Andrea. "because I don't helleve any
woman in t he world ever really loves
an unjealous man. Of course," she
tdl41ed tiuglitfully, "we despise jeal.

Trevor was silent for a long tie,
pondering on this absurd and unan
swerablhe 'arguieient. The still arose
and set to work at once to overheat
the world; Andrea grew warm and
