The Hollow
of Her Hand

Hetty looked up quickly from her
book. A look of dismay flickered In
her eyes for nn instant and then gave
way to the calmness that had come to
dwell In their depths of lato. Her lips
parted In the sudden impulse to cry
out against the plan, but she checked
the words. For a moment her dark,
flueetionlng eyes studied the face of
her benefactress; then, as if nothing
had been revealed to her, she allowed
her gaze to drift pensively out toward
the sunset sea.
They were sitting on the broad
verandah overlooking tho sound. The
dusk of evening was beginning to steal
over the earth. She laid her book
asido. , I
"Will you telephone in to him after
dinner, Hetty?" went on Sara, after
a long period of silence.
Again Hetty started. This time a
look of actual pain flashed In her eyes.
"Would not a note by post be more
certain to find him In the " she bo-
igan hurriedly.
"I dislike writing notes," said Sara
calmly. "Of course, dear, If you feel
that you'd rather not telephone him,
I can "
"I dare say I am finicky, Sara," apol
ogized Hetty in quick contrition. "Of
course he Is your brother. I should
remem "
"My brother-in-law, dear," said Sara,
a trifle too literally.
"He will come often to your house,"
went on Hetty rapidly. "I must make
the best of It"
. "He Is your friend, Hetty. He ad
mires you." :
"I cannot see him through your
eyee, Sara."
"But he is charming and agreeable,
you'll admit," persisted the other.
, "He is very kind, and he Is devoted
to you. I should like him for that."
"You have no cause for disliking
ihlm." I
"I do not dislike him. I I am Oh,
you always have been so thoughtful,
so considerate, Sara, I can't under
stand your falling to see how hard It
is for me to to well, to endure his
open-hearted friendship."
Sara was silent for a moment. "You
draw a pretty fine line, Hetty," she
said gently. i
Hetty flushed. "You mean that
there is little to choose between wife
and brother? That Isn't quite fair.
You know everything, he knows noth
ing. I wear a mask for him; you have
'seen Into the very heart of me. It
isn't the same."
Sara came over and stood beside the
girl's chair. After a moment of Inde
cision she laid her hand on Hetty's
shoulder. The girl looked up, the ever
recurring question In her eyes.
"We haven't spoken of of these
things in many months, Hetty."
"Not since Mrs. Wrandall and Viv
ian came to Nice. I was upset dread
fully upsot then, Sara. I don't know
how I managed to get through with
"But you managed it," pronounced
Sara. Her fingers seemed to tighten
suddenly on the girl's shoulder. "I
think we were quite wonderful, both
of us. It wasn't easy for me."
"Why did we come back to New
York, Sara?" burst out Hetty, clasp
ing her friend's hand as if suddenly
spurred by terror. "We wero happy
over there. And free!"
"Listen, my dear," said Sara, a
hard note growing in her voice: "this
Is my home. I do not love it, but I
can see no reason for abandoning it.
That is why we came back to New
Hetty pressed her friend's hand to
her lips. "Forgive me," she cried im
pulsively. "I shouldn't have com
complalned. It was detestable."
"Besides," went on Sara evenly,
"you were qulto'free to remain on the
other side. ,1 left It to you."
"You gave me a week to decide,"
said Hetty In a hurried manner of
Bpeaklng. "I I took but twenty-four
hours less than that. Over night,
you remember. I love you, Sara. I
could not leave you. All that night
I could feel you pulling at my heart
strings, pulling me closer, and holding
me. You were in your room, I in
mine, and yet all the time you seemed
to be bending over me in the dark
ness, urging me to stay with you and
love you and be loved by you. It
couldn't have been a dream."
"It was not a dream," said Sara,
With a queer smile.
"You do love me?" tensely.
"I do love you," was the firm an
swer. Sara was staring across the
water, her eyes big nnd as black as
night itself. She seemed to be looking
far beyond the misty lights that bob
bled with nearby schooners, far bej
yond the yellow mass on the opposite
shore where a town lay cradled in the
"shadows, far into the fast darkening
sky that camo up like a wall out of
the east
Hetty's fingers tightened in a
warmer clasp. Unconsciously perhaps,
Sara's grip on the girl's shoulder
tightened also; unconsciously, for her

woman's pensive gaze rested on the
peaceful waters below, taking in the
slow approach of the fog that was
soon to envelop the land. Neither

leaped backward to the beginning and
took up the puzzle at Its Inception.
"I wonder " began Hetty, her eyes
narrowing with the intensity of
thought. She did not complete the
Sara answered the unspoken ques
tion. "It will never be different from
what it is now, unless you make it so."
Hetty started. "How could you have
known what I was thinking?" she
cried In wonder.
I "It Is what you are always think
ing, my dear. You are always asking
j ourself when will I turn against you,"
"Your own intelligence should sup
ply the answer to all the questions you
are asking of yourself. It is too late
for me to turn against you." She ab
ruptly removed her hand from Hetty's
shoulder and walked to the edge of
the veranda. For the first time, the
English girl was conscious of pain.
She drew her arm up and cringed. She
pulled the light scarf about her bare

"A box of flowers has just come up
from the station for you, miss," said
Hetty was very white as Bhe passed
Into the house. Mrs. Wrandall re
sumed her contemplation of the fog- '
screened sound.

When Hetty hurried into the library
"Good God, Sara!" Cried the Girl In
a few minutes later, her manner was
that of one considerably disturbed by
eomethlng that has transpired almost
on tho moment. Her cheeks were
flushed and her eyes were reflectors
of a no uncertain distress of mind.
Trs. Wrandall was standing before
the fireplace, an exquisite figure in the
slinky black evening gown which she
affected In these days. Her perfectly
modelled neck and shoulders gleamed
like pink marble In the reflected glow
of the burning logs. She wore no Jew
elry, but there was a single white rose
in her dark hair, where it had been
placed by the whimsical Hetty an hour
earlier as they left the dinner table.
"He is coming out on the eleven
thirty, Sara," said the girl nervously,
"unless you will send the motor in for
him. The body of his car is being
changed and It's in the shop. He must
have been Jesting when he eald he
would pay for tho petrol I should
have eald gasoline,"
Sara laughed. "You will know him
better, my dear." sho said. "Leslie is '

"Ho suggested bringing a friend,"
went on Hetty hurriedly. "A Mr.

"I met him in Italy. He is charm-

The emphasis did not escape 'notice.'
"It scorns that bo la epondlng a fort
night In tho village, this Mr. Booth,
painting spring lambs tor rest and
recreation, Mr. Leslie says."
"Then he Is at our very gates," said
Sara, looking up suddenly.
"I wonder If he can be the man I
saw yesterdny at tho bridge," mused
Hetty. "Is he tall?"
v"I really can't say. He's rather
vague. It was six or seven years ago."
"It was left that Mr. Wrnndall is to
come out on the eleven-thirty," ex
plained Hetty, "I thought you wouldn't
like sending either of tho motors in."
"And Mr. Booth?"
"We are to send for him after Mr.
Wrandall arrives. He Is stopping at
the Inn, wherever that may be."
"Poor fellow I" sighed Sara, with a
grimace. "I am sure he will like us
Immensely if ho has been stopping at
the Inn."
Hetty stood staring down at the
blazing loes for a full minute before
' giving expression to the thought that
troubled her.
"Sara," she said, meeting her
friend's eyes with a steady light In her
own, "why did Mr. Wrandall ask for
mo Instead of you? It Is you ho is
coming to visit, not mo. It is your

Why should-
"My dear," said Sara glibly, "I am
merely his slster-ln-law. It wouldn't
be necessary to ask me if he Bhould
come. He knows ho is welcome."
"Then why should he feel called up
on to"
i "Some men like to telephone, t sup
pose," said the other coolly.
I "I wonder If you will ever under
stand how I feel about about certain
things, Sara,"
"What, for instance?"
I "Well, his very evident lnteresfln
me," cried the girl hotly. "He sends
me flowers thlo is - the Becond box
this week and he is so kind, so very
friendly, Sara, that I can't bear it I
really can't."
Mrs. Wrandall stared at her. "You
can't very well send him about his
business," she said, "unless he be
comes more than friendly. Now, can
"But it seems bo so horrible, so
beastly," groaned the girl.
Sai a faced her squarely. "See here,
I Hetty," she said levelly, "we have
made our bed, you and I. We must lie
in it together. If Leslie Wrandall
chooses to fall In love with you, that
is his affair, not ours. We mast face
every condition. In plain words, we
must play the game."
"What could be more appalling than
to have him fall In love with me?"
"The other way 'round would be
more dramatic, I should say."
"Good God Sara!" cried the girl in

"But I want to Justify myself"
"It isn't necessary," cut in the other
so peremptorily that the girl's eyes
spread into a look of anger. Where
upon Sara Wrandall threw her arm
about her and drew her down beside
her in the chaise-lounge. "I didn't
mean to be harsh," she cried. "We
must not speak of the past, that's all.
The future is not likely to hurt us,
dear. Let us avoid the past."
"The future!" sighed the girl, star
ing blankly before her. i
"To appreciate what it is to be,"
said tho other, "you have but to think
of what Jt might have been."
"I know,"' said Hetty, in a low
voice. "And yet I sometimes wonder

"Now you are Jesting!"
"Perhaps." said Sara laconically.

for her accustomed tramp over the
roads that wound through the estate.

he dropped his bag beside the motor
in order to reach over and shake

eight o'clock until I awoke at nine."
"And then you had the additional
task of thinking about breakfast,"
said Hetty, but without a trace of sar

"I never think of breakfast," said
he amiably. "I merely eat it Of
