Talking to Dick in a Low tone. Distinctly she heard the words Quot kiss Here and Dick s angry exclamation. Bewildered she saw Dick tear the pledge pin from his Vest. The older boy backed away refusing the pin laughing saying a a Okay you done to need to get none of it made sense to Susie. Sitting comfortably in the roadster beside a strangely preoccupied escort Susie pondered Over the incident in the Hall. Obviously the upper Classman had not wanted Dick to kiss her. Her blood pounded furiously at the thought. And Dick had been angry at the interference. Trembling by Susie waited. At last she glanced at him from gave itself into Dick s under her heavy brows. A Why did no the want you to kiss me a she asked rather ingeniously for one unversed in subtleties. Dick looked at her quickly startled. He muttered. A those Guys had better mind their own what Susie had answered still a serial Story women want Beauty by Louise Holmes . >.�. Nea service. Inc a ast of characters at two descending the stairs Sisie Lambert she seized again enfolded in the Spring coat Waif firs Ami dreamed of being she saw one of the older boys Beautiful. Dick Tremaine he liked Susie a waffles but he see Susie. Jeff Bowman a his chief concern was to make Susie As Beautiful As he wanted to be. A a yesterday Dirk had once dated Susie As a jest. Now she recalls the Day sorrowfully wishes she might have been Beautiful just for him. Chapter in Susie w ent to bed but not to sleep. Her thoughts still pursued the Well worn path of memory. She had bought an evening dress for Dicks party Bright Blue moire taffeta on the outside definitely sateen underneath. It was Long and extremely backless and sported two red velvet topples on the bosom. She bought High heeled red sandals. Actually they made her feet appear pretty and Small but they Hurt terribly. On the Day of the party she had her hair done marvelled into a frizz the Bangs swirling from left to right. The frizz made her hair Shorter than Ever it left a straight fringe of her Shubby neck. She had her nails manicured. Very Pink very shiny. She bought Bath powder and a Brilliant Shade of lipstick. By saturday night Susie was in a dither. It took her two hours to dress. She dropped everything upset everything. The Thiu silk Hose were a bit Short when she carefully pulled them Over her Well rounded Knees. The tight backless brassiere snapped off its one Hook when she leaned Over and she had to undress. The dress was More snug than she had thought it in the shop but the Long skirt was beautifully slender izing. Susies Mirror said unflattering things concerning Bright Blue with her Sallow skin. She airily denied the accusation and put on More Rouge. Her Mouth Cherry red to the far Cornera was enormous. This too she refused to admit. It was no night for fault finding. Over the festive gown she wore her Spring coat the swagger style. Noticing its dimensions one of the waitresses had said �?�8us-is s coat must have been made by Omar the Susie was sorry she had no Everling wrap but a budget could Only be stretched so far. Never would Susie forget the moment when Dick arrived. Nothing that happened afterwards could quite blur the rapture of that moment. Waiting in the lower Hall tense with anticipation she had opened the door for him. Had he looked horrified for a split second surely not. Smiling. He removed his hot. Of the cleanness of him the breathtaking smoothness of his hair the splendor of his evening clothes the whole perfection of him. Susie always remembered what he said. A lady the Carriage so had giggled hysterically. The Carriage was a roadster Long and Low and Swanky. Susie tripped on her Long dress and literally fell into the seat. The top was Down and the night air blew some of the frizz out of her hair. Leaving dismally unmanageable strands. On the drive to the fraternity House she laughed too much was jumpy As a top balloon. All at once Susie was stricken with fear. What went on at a fraternity dance she had t an idea. Exhilaration dissolved and with it went Confidence. A a in be never been to a Nice she said to Dick. A maybe i should t have a a you la get along Alt he assured her. A Titi see that you he sounded a bit grim. He took her to the dressing room and. Is rhe entered the chatter ceased. Girls everywhere in slim satins soft chiffons their Heads coined smoothly their eyebrows daintily arched. Some of the girls turned their Hacks As Susie uncertainly took off the Spring coat. She heard a suppressed snicker. Several of the More kindly inclined said. A hello Susie a and she stammered an answer. To Len the girls left Susie alone she heard the Ripple of their laughter Oil the stairs. Nervously powdering her nose she stopped aghast at what she saw in the Long Mirror squat bulk overhanging eyebrows the bulging fatness of her Back. Frantically she fussed with her hair while panic seized her. She could t go Down she could no to. Then came Dick voice from somewhere beyond the door a a bout ready Susie a a a a after that the party was a series of vague impressions Young men whom she had served with waffles being ostentatiously polite. Girls who ignored her Dregs too tight shoes too tight Dick always there. From 9 30 until Oue Susie danced with Dick Stum bling losing the step coming up with a Jolt against his smoothly moving at twelve she had said a take me Home. he looked at his wrist watch. A just a Little longer. Susie a there was a White line of fatigue around Dicks youth Mouth. He smiled gallantly at one they were served with tiny sandwiches and huge Black olives Sherbert and Coffee. The girls were presented with favors Little Silver compacts with the Delta Phi Emblem embossed on one Side. Susie was delighted with the trinket. Lay like a scorching Coal in her heart after four years. She had said a a Well if you want to and a and if i done to a kissed. Hungry for love flaming with it. Dick stopped the car at Susie a shabby Rooming House. A look a he said a i Don t like Fellows who kiss every girl they take out. I think its common and not very complimentary to the a a in be never been kissed a she said wistfully. It Wasny to like Susie to be Forward. Something outside herself or perhaps within herself wanted to be kissed. The still Crisp night the Star bitten sky Dicks clean honest Mouth the urge of youth she leaned heavily against him. Dick still hesitated. A would it make you feel better about tonight if i kissed you a he asked. She gazed at him not understanding. A if you knew id never take you out again would you want me to kiss you a Susie raised her lips and he kissed her. It was a Quick reluctant kiss but in that instant Susie a lonely thwarted heart keeping without thought of consequences without question.
