Kathy i.s marrying Owen for social prestipe alone. When Carol, an orphan, comes into a vast fortune, she suddenly decides to have her old home in Connecticut and seek freedom and happiness in Ketc York. Isobel tironson, an old school chum, helps Carol to buy proper clothes and takes her to her first cocktail party where she meets Cary Crandall, a playboy Acting on a whim, he takes her to a beauty shop horn which she emerges an at tractive girl. Knowing nothing of her wealth, he helps her to meet Manfred Morris, theatrical producer, uho gives her a part in a Tiroadway show. Hut Carol does not care tor the theater and Owen helps her ob tain a temporary job as office nurse with a colleague. Dr. Harding. Carol -vades Cary’s proposal ot marriage but scolds herself for shoxcing an interest in Oxcen during Kathjfs absence in Europe. A Miss Van Clcvc, a patient of Dr. Harding, calls and shoxes an interest in Carol when she finds she knexo her mother years before. Dr. Harding leaves town and assigns Carol as companion nurse to Miss Van Clcve for observa tional purposes. (X OH’ GO ON wirn THE storyj CHAPTER 28 "I'M CLAD to hear that you will,’' Pr. Harding told Carol when she said the would do as he wished by going to Miss Van Cleve during his ab sence. "What will my duties be?" she Asked. "They will be easy but you must be a keen observer. I have already suggested to Mr. Van Cleve that I should like to have someone spend some time with his aunt. You will be more companion than nurse. I imagine her routine is simple. Per haps she will require you to read to her. talk to her. drive with her. However, it will not be gay for you since I nil) require you to spend all your time with her until my return. You will make your residence in the Van Cleve home. Is that agreeable?” Distinctly it would not have been had Carol no personal interest in the elderly lady. It was escape from a ; lonely life spent in the company of older people that Carol had sought and it had led her right back to where she was. For a moment she was tempted to 1 retract her promise but since it was 1 to be for only a fortnight and since there was some indefinable air of 1 mystery about the whole situation l and because Dr. Harding had 1 stressed the words It would be In 1 Miss Van Cleve’s Interest solely, she knew that she must see it through, i ‘‘l’ve made an appointment for you < to see Mr. Van Cleve at bis home at I five," the doctor concluded. i The Van Clev6 residence was an * old-fashioned brown stone house on 1 Fast 5-ith street, standing solidly and < bleakly between two tall, modern apartments.

I’m Mr. Van Cleve.” She hadn't even heard him enter the room. "You are a nurse?" Carol thought quickly before she answered. “I'm the person Dr. Harding sent,” she said, not answer ing bis question directly. She wanted to stay here now and she was afraid if she denied that she was a nurse, Mr. Van Cleve would find a reason for not accepting her. In stinctively she felt that he did not want anyone there at all. She couldn’t explain that sixth sense. I see.” He folded his hands and drew his brows together. And al though he beamed at her broadly, the cold, inscrutable look did not leave his eyes. He began talking: "I assume that Dr. Harding has already explained this case to you?” "Very little of it,” she said, and waited. "Then, of course, you know, that my aunt is the patient. It is a deli cate case and we wish to move care fully." Carol wondered who "we” might be. "Aunt Miranda is very dear to us. She Is the last of her generation and I fear we have spoiled her but that Is only because we want her to be happy.” Carol thought the sort of spoiling Mr. Van Cleve would do would re quire quite some imagination but her fair spirit told her that she was not to judge from appearances. Her own mother had been of this old fashioned school and while she was demanding, she was a kind woman “It is not entirely her health that gives us grave concern: she is a delicate, brittle little lady at the mercy of her . shall, we say . . her nerves. Os late she has not . . er . . . she has not been quite her self. 1 find it difficult to explain that statement. She has insisted on assuming duties of which she should be relieved.

"No ..no I don’t mean that. To put it quite baldly. Aunt Miranda, at times, acts very strangely. Not that this will affect you" he said it hastily. “In fact, it" may not be noticeable at all while you are here. Dr. Harding said he would like to have some one with her until his return.

"Certainly. Very well.” Van Cleve dismissed it. “We shall expect you immediately. I’ll have Perkins ar range everything. Remember what I said, and make any social engage ments you want to. You are young and we are not very gay around here. I assure you that we will not demand all your time.” “Thank you." she said and that was all. Horton Van Cleve, in a courtly manner, showed her to the door and she had turned to him to say good by when a small voice from the top of the dark staircase called: “Horton, is that the young lady Dr. Harding sent?” A look of impatience crossed Hor ton’s dark face and passed quickly. "Yes, Aunt Miranda. She Is coming to us in the morning.” “But I would like to see her now." With an air of humoring a per child’s wish. Horton turned to Carol and in a most charming, voice said:. “Would you mind? 1 regret keeping you so long but Aunt Miranda's slightest wish is important in this house.” "Not at all.” Carol felt her way up the stairs and followed a shaft of light leading to the front sitting room where Miranda Van Cleve waited. She could not see Carol’s face in the shadows but Carol could see the firmness of her face when she said: "Thank you. Horton. You need not wait. I’ll see the !ad.v alone.” She closed the door and with her back still to Carol said: “What is your name?” Carol laughed softly. "Don’t you remember me. Miss Van Cleve? I’m Carol Kennedy ” For an instant the older woman looked at her. Then she came across the room and took both the girl’s hands into her own little ones. She looked searchingly into Carol’s face for a moment and then silently be gan to cry. "Oh. my dear, what Is It?’’ Carol wiped the tears away as though k he little lady were a child and she the mother. “They’re tears of relief.” Miss Van Cleve answered. “I’m so glad |ifc's you.
