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.

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
