1 DAILY SHORT STORY —————|
RELIEF NURSE By D. R. Stiles. TVJEDRA MONT* OOMERY.a coldly efficient an gel-of-mercy as de void of sentiment as a steel wedge, her perky starched cap set well back on graying brown waves, briskly fol lowed at her cou sin's, Dr. Jefford’s, heels up the richly carpeted stairs of one of Washing ton’s finest homes. A returned prodigal two days before, Nedra was still pro testing inwardly at the absurdity of spending her first real vacation In 20 years "on duty.” “Like a gob, on leave, rowing In a city park,” Nedra had protested to Nedra stared transfixed. her cousin and host, Dr. Jefford, when he insisted on having the assurance of her brusque capability as relief nurse on this emergency case. Following Dr. Jefford into the sick room, where they were to light an ad mittedly losing battle, Nedra set down her black case, acknowledged with a alight smile of sympathy the half heard Introduction to the patient’s wife, gave a friendly nod to the nurse on duty, and took her place beside the doctor at the bedside. * * * * r\ s DR. JEFFORD took the charts from the nurse going off duty, the thin figure in the bed moved his head elightly, painfully, toward the doctor. Nedra stared transfixed. Twenty in flexible years of strict self-discipline were blotted out in the instant. Some how she had neglected to ask Dr Jef ford his patient's name! Dr. Jefford’s reassuring smile for his patient pro tected Nedra in her moment of blank amazement. How could this happen to her. bit terly Nedra asked herself, silently staring. Everything life had done to her so far had tested her courage, etrength, will-power in shutting out love . . . and she had come through Unscathed. With rigidly disciplined lingers Nedra obeyed orders. Swiftly, expertly, ■he worked beside Dr. Jefford, wretch edly sick of everything . . . wonder ing if slipping out as this soul was about to do might not be the thing most to be desired, after all. Glancing at the burning eyes star ing at her from the bed she knew why ■he had come back home. Nedra sud denly felt a definite gladness that late had sent her here. After frantic de epair, bitter anguish, followed by fren Bied. busy, hopeless years, she had been ■ent back to ease the pain, smooth the last bit of difficult pathway for the one who had so tragically failed her. * * * * T^EDRA straightened Stan's pillow ~ with a small sigh. This was love, Bhe thought, this was life. Dr. Jefford’s voice reached her, softly explaining: "Not unprepared, I told them months ago.” The figure in the bed grew restless. Nothing gave quiet for long, or truly save quiet. Nedra moving by the bed ■aw the feverish eyes open. Breath lessly expectant, she leaned forward, seeking one word that would mean much, fearful that poignant surging memories were flimsy dream stuff. The roving eyes paused, closed for • breathless second, opened slowly and looked again into Nedra’s eager eyes, deeply and unbe lievingly, pitifully desperate with the I longing to believe. Wiping out the bitterness of deso late years, Nedra smiled at Stan, pat ting his hand gen tly as he began to mumble. Meaning less gibberish it was to all but Nedra, || helpless to admit !' her understanding. Dr. Jefiord came II again to the bed ||j side as Nedra j] moved back sllent I ly. The mumbling * grew stronger, the questing eyes searched wildly for some one, as Stan called weakly: “Ned, Ned, you’ve come 'back, you understand. Tell me, Ned.” His weary eyes, unsatisfied, closed again. * * * * 'T'ENSELY Nedra stood at the foot of the bed. looking piteously at Dr. Jefford, believing he must soon realize the thing so evident to her. Ghosts of the past clattered disturbingly in the charged quiet of the room. Dr. Jefford turned quickly to the wife. “What does he mean? Who is this Ned? Can he be summoned?” Hesistantly the wife answered. “He must mean Edward, our son.” Puzzled, she added: "But we don't call him Ned. He’s on his way here now.” She turned to the door. Nedra’s anger flared hotly. All the pent-up passion of years of stifled emotions burned fiercely. Stupid fools! Could not they realize there might have been some one besides the two of them in Stan’s life? Could they mis take this for a father’s call? Let the lot of them go hang! Stan had recog nized her after all these years, wanted her, loved her still, was calling to her now from the edge of darkness. She must answer before it was too late. She started around the foot of the bed. Strong, softly placed footfalls sounded down the hall, arrested Nedra. She turned as Stan’s son entered, tall, dark, very like Stan had been in those unjo. * * * * YJlfHITE-FACED, but brave tn his youth, the son came to the bed side. Tearfully his fragile mother joined him and placed one of Stan’s thirr, plucking hands in the youth's strong brown one. Silently watching them, Nedra’s heart suddenly felt very old, very burnt out. Quietly she went to the opposite side of the bed and took her appointed | place beside Dr. Jefford. The excellent round gold watch on her wrist ticked away the seconds. Even without looking she could read j the inscription on the reverse side of the case—"Ned-forever-Stan.” A second later Dr. Jefford laid the thin hand, quiet now, on the bed. Nedra looked across at Stan’s wife and son. pitiful In their bereavement. Slowly she straightened the sheet over the still form. Standing quietly by the bed, Nedra felt strangely freed from the accumulation of cherished re sentment, newly cleansed from the crusty bitterness of frustrated love, vividly aglow as a dusty tree washed freshly green by drenching rain. (Copyright. 1036.1 r CHAPTER XLV. ONE MORE NAME. g t aw nuuiu mwvv wwi (*^6 to do it. Anne straightened her shoulders and lifted her chin. “You know. John,” she began mus ingly, "I had always thought you a tnan of your word until this evening.” "What?” he challenged. “Last Spring you said there could be only one girl you could ever love. And then later you said I was that girl. Didn’t you mean it, John?” He looked down at her, face immo bile. only his eyes showing the tight leash he held upon himself. “What of it?” he asked, “you’re Anne Farns worth.” Anne saw an old log, she sat down on it and began to laugh, hysterically. "This is funny.” she managed to say. “What is funny?” he asked. “Rob Crocker wouldn’t marry me because I wasn’t Anne Farnsworth." "Crocker was a cad,” John declared emphatically, "you were well rid of him.” "And now,” Anne continued, "the man I really love, the only man I’ve ever actually loved, won’t marry me because I am Anne Farnsworth.” John was silent. Wind whispered through the firs; sounds from the town below drifted ud to them, high clear voices and the baric of a dog. "Maybe you’re well rid of him, too," he declared at last, and grimly. "I guess you’re right,” she agreed, “if he isn’t man enough 'to help me shoulder the responsibilities I’ll have to carry from now on, he isn’t the man I thought him. “Judge Kellogg is getting old. It won’t be long before he’ll retire and then what will I do.” Her voice grew hopeless. “I don’t know a thing about business and only a little about fish ing. I’ll just be prey for the Farleys and Crockers of the world.” "You’ll find some one you can hire,” returned John, wearily. Suddenly Anne stood up and faced him: “You . . , you Finn,” she •napped, “you selfish thing you. You care more about your silly old pride than you do me. You’d sooner let 2he go around heartbroken, alone, with greedy men preying on my affections trying to win my inheritance, than you would to sacrifice that pride, marry me and protect me. Afraid you can’t repay me in money . . . money, as if 10 million dollars could take the place of one moment of true love. “Oh, why,” she walled to the whis pering firs, and that far ocean, “why, oh, why did I have to think I was in love with a man like Rob, then fall in love with a man like, you who’s every bit as selfish as Rob, who thinks only of himself?” ’’Nikki, don’t!” John caught her Into his arms, half crushing her with the strength of his desperate em brace. "Nikki, I do love you and you’re right. I hadn’t thought of it that way. I’d only thought how it would look if I married you like a money snatcher. If you could only know the hell I’ve been through day after day. Working, fighting to help you win what was yours and knowing I was losing you. Nikki, you've two names now, do you still want a third?” “Right away,” she agreed, with astonishing meekness. “I’ve been a little unhappy with the other two. I think the third one will be the charm.” “And you don’t think I’m the selfish person you said I was?” he insisted. Anne smiled one of her rare smiles. “No,” she said. “I just had to do something to arouse you.” A shower swept up over the moun tains and reached the two on the hill side. The firs bent under the rush of wind and rain, whispering their eternal whisper. “Why, John,” Anne lifted her face from the shelter of his arms, “it’s raining.” “I know,” he admitted, "it’s been raining for five minutes or so, and you should be home where it’s dry and warm. Come on.” He took her hand and they raced down the hill. They stopped a moment and looked at the gray shingled house. Figures were flying up and down the steep stairway, voices sang and shouted from the house, shadows flitted past the windows, the festival was on. As they entered they saw Tecla seated near the hearth, her dimples showing, her face a roseate glow of happiness. Liisa, striding through the room with a huge frosted cake reading "Welcome Home” in colored ——ot —v|.|#vu ouutv. a aac gleaming topknot at the zenith of its career, bobbed a greeting with the suddenness of her stopping. "Look who’s here,” she chortled. “Come in out of the rain, you goose,” and then she paused. “What are we going to call you now? Anne Farns worth, Nikki Nielsen or what?” "How would Annikki Neuman do?” asked John, and his arms encircled Anne, the disturbing blue of his eyes challenging hers, as the shouts of con gratulations arose from the guests THE END.
