I “Why, Frank! You’re back again * and safe!” The young woman in * mourning held out her hand to the . . chauffeur. ‘‘My aunt wrote you «J were a prisoner in Germany.” ht' "It’s fine to see you. Miss Fay,” * returned the chauffeur. “They 1 turned us loose after the armistice.” He hesitated. *‘I—I’d like to say. ; miss, that we all felt something ter 1 rible—the servants. I mean—when I the news came about poor Mr. Tudor.” He shut the door and. climbing in jPPjJP^hind the wheel, drove down the W village street. Fay’s soft blue eyes r bad blurred at the reference to her ,* brother, but she winked back the * tears determinedly. Sandy Cove was one of the most » exclusive of summer colonies, and \ Fay looked at the superb estates 4 whieh had once been so familiar with a sense of bewilderment. Every thing seemed just the same, just as J she had remembered it. and yet . there appeared to he a subtle, in * tangible difference. Could it be merely her nerves again, those 4 wretched overtaxed nerves whieh , had driven Iter from her reconstruc tion work in France? \ She leaned forward Impulsively. “My aunt and cousin: they are both well. Frank?” , "Yes, Miss Fay.” Fay sat back once more. Dear Aunt Clara. Hor/unclo's widow was as close to her ns her own blood. ' and Laurel, her cousin, had been like a little dark-eyed, vivacious sister. 4 The car swirled up the driveway, anil halted before the steps of the wide porch, upon which a slender. * white-clad figure stood. . Fay had only time to note that Hie ‘ piquant face seemed as childishly I naive as ever, before her cousin ' folded her in a tense embrace. "Oh, Fay! Kay*! I thought that transport never would get in.” ‘ “Laurel, dear!” Fay kissed her ! warmly, and mounted the steps to » meet the gracious figure advancing \ toward her. Mrs. Tudor was thirty-seven and looked twenty-live, villi the delicate , Jendcr Irregularity of feature which - ^Rkst escapes aetual beauty. Every ! VHing about her was pretty; her » ’Tdond hair and soft blue eyes and the rose-leaf skin, whieh was inno « t • nt ««t in*- ciifiii" ' 1 ■ * girlishly .''lemh'r figure moved with , ;i slow rhjtlnnle glare. I.ater, during l lie meal, Fay studied her mini and cousin covert 1>. It seemed I here was a strnined note in Laurel's vivacity which be trayed a nervous tension. She was pu/.zling over it vlien the girl remarked: "You haven't asked alioul any of tlie old crowd. Fay, Now Unit the men are back if is like (he old. Sandv Cove again. Mr. Clayton and others are staying at the Country Club." "Mr. Clayton?" Fay glanced up quickly. "Yes. One nr I lie dnllar-a>-yoar liien jn Washington.” t "He has been inugniflreni Iv gen i-iods:" Fay’s eves glowed. "1 shall be glad to see liim again!" Mrs. Tudor glanced across tlie table at her niece and smiled. "He's quite the same as ever,” she said. "Plays abominable bridge and talks shop." "Oh, mother only abuses him be cause lie is as insane about her as cvef!" Laurel laughed, but there was a nervous little quiver in her .voice as she hurried on. "Jack Huntmgtoo is at the club—and Harry Cadmus.” Hhe drew a quick breath as she mentioned the last name, and her eyes seemed to burn into her cous in's. but Fay merely responded . quietly: i | "Is he?" Harry Cadmus! Fay actually had forgotten his very existence for •ore than a year. How heartbroken |e had fancied herself when the g test came and he had frantically pulled wires to obtain an assignment at home rather than face tlie haz ards of active service! With what hot scorn had she parted with him! And now it was with difficulty that she could conjure up a fleeting im pression of him. ' Mrs. Tudor rose. "Fay. T did not inean to touch upon your brother’s ■ death so soon after your return, but I think you may be glad lo know • that Wilbur's friend brought all his things to us, and they are in his old room now. The key is on your dress I er.” ■ “It was Captain Warren who brought them?” Fay asked. "Did , you like him?” "We did not even meet him. We were up in the Berkshires when he came. By the way, I fancy we shall have a crowd from the club for tea.” "Please. Aunt Clara,” Fay pro tested, "you will let me escape, '■ won’t you?” “But they will be so disappoint ed!” Laurel exclaimed. "Seeing them In such an informal way will be easier than if they all paid stiff calls r>f condolence, if you put off meet ing them there will be talk.” “Why?” Fay demanded. “Well, they’ll think it queer of you! ‘Nervous breakdown’ is such an elastic term—” “Laurel means, dear, that they will think you are really ill. when all you need is a good rest,” Mrs. Tudor interrupted smoothly. Fay passed her hand over lie 1 eyes. “I am a little tired. I think 1 shall rest a while if I am to meet these people late*:.” Fay’s tired nerves relaxed in the dint quietude of the room which she was to share with Laurel. As she picked up her hand mirror for a glance at her hair, a key on the dressing table caught her eye and she put the mirror aside. The key to Wilbur's room! Taking up the key she made her way to the one closed door down the hall and. unlocking it, paused upon the threshold. Her eyes strayed to the mantel, and with a little exclamation of sur prise. she drew nearer to it. A hand grenade, a “tin hat.” and ; a gas mask! Then all at once she re called what her aunt had said—that I Captain Warren had brought Wil bur's things home. She touched the j helmet with tender reverence, and| took up the gas mask, but the dark staitis upon its case made her re coil, and the full horror and desola tion of her loss swept over her. She returned to her own room to remove the traces of her emotion in the determination to take up her life again among those carelessly happy people below as soon as she could. As she came down tho stairs a few minutes later a man standing in the hallway came quickly forward. "Oh, there you arc, Clara! 1 lull'd voices out on the lawn and was just about to—” He paused as the girl advanced and held out her hand. “How do you do, Mr. Clayton'.' Am 1 so very like my aunt? I am complimented.” "Miss Tudor!” The newcomer re covered from his surprise and shook hands cordially. “When did you re turn ?” “.List .his morning. Po you know f feel like a dancer who suddenly finds herself out of step?” Fay smiled. “Silly, isn’t it?” "No. I don't think it’s silly,” ho responded. “You’ve been living under such high pressure that this seems unreal, as though you were looking on at some pleasant-man t.crfd comedy on the stage." • ■ jft’* I.',... -1 “I want to talk to you,” Clayton urged suddenly. “Do you know, 1 havn't yet got over the shock you gave me just now? 1 can never quite realize that you are actually grown up, even when I read about the eitation from General retain.” “We beard about you, too, ov-r there.” Fay seated herself. “Our unit was at the very last of its re sources when your train-loads of food came!” ”[ am glad it was of service.” Clayton paused. “Well, upon my word!” Mrs. Tudor’s voire sounded from the doorway. “When did you arrive, Kim? I’m glad you found Fay, but you’ve kept the whole crowd wait ing Tor ages out on the lawn.” "I’m sorry.” Clayton rose. The next hour was less of a trial to Fay than she had feared, for after the first flurry of greetings, tin conversation returned to the cur rent gossip and the girl was con tent to sit back and look on. That evening after her aunt anl cousin had departed with Mr. Clay ton to a country club dance, Fay strolled into the library. She ex tinguished the lights, seated herself by the open window and looked out over the sloping lawn to shadows which marked the clump of trees surrounding the tea-house. So it had been Captain Warren who brought Wilbur’s things home. He had come to see her in Paris on his first furlough after her brother was killed, and she recalled him as a tall, self-contained man, with kindly guay eyes. She wished that she had been at home here to re ceive him. With a start her thoughts came abruptly back to the present and she leaned forward. Had some thing moved there beneath that clump of trees? It must be simply her nerves, which peopled the shadow's. With a shrug she sank back among the cushions, and her mind reverted to the captain once more. Suddenly she was aw-are of a rustling in the shrubbery directly beside the window and without warning a face appeared within a few inches of her own! It was a white, drawn face with disheveled hair and eyes which stared W’ildly into hers for a mo ment. w'hile she held her breath in surprise and terror. The next instant it had disap peared, and there remained only the night breezo rustling through the shrubbery. CHAPTER II The next morning, when Kay awakened, she was ready to laugh at her own fancy of the night be fore. Her overwrought imagination had played her strange tricks since her nerves had given way, but never had her visions laken so startling a turn. The pallid horror of it, and the staring, almost maniacal, eyes were like nothing she had seen in a human being: it could only be the stuff of which nightmares are made.
