Ile might have had Sally hut while he was King on skis Cor by Porter was King of the social whirl. So. But go on with the Story. Yesterday Sally accepted Reyes ring in a moment of impulsiveness thinking she will never hear from Dan a agin. Chapter xxi the first thing that Sally did in the process of trying to forget the Sally that Dan had not wanted was to destroy the letter that she had kept locked so Long in her jewel Case. She told herself that Dan was a Coward since he had run away. She told herself that the tables had turned that she the old Sally Blair again did not believe in Dan Reynolds. She would forget that she Ever had believed in him she would forget she had Ever known him. She had no use for his letter now she would never read it Over again. She did not even read it when she took it out of its hiding place. She Tore it into tiny fragments deliberately cruelly with that dangerous brightness in her dark eyes. A brightness that was not satisfied even then. She carried the fragments to the fire burning in the grate in her Lovely bedroom she tossed the pieces into the Dames. She watched them crumple around the edges shrink up into a pitiful Small Heap of Gray ashes. Like my heart Sally thought watching them and leaned Down swiftly to gather them into the Palm of her hand to let a tear fall on them. The last tear she resolved fiercely that she Ever would shed Over Dan Reynolds. If Only she could have turned her love to ashes As simply As this tossing it Back into the flames again ii she wore Corey s big Diamond on the third Finger of her left hand now she wag supposed to be engaged to him. Corey had made up her mind for her. Sally dancing until Dawn partying laughing playing the part of the Gay Glamour girl once More did not have any mind to make up. Nor any heart. Only a Dull emptiness taking the place of the old ache where her heart once had been. A i Hope you wont Rush into this marriage a her father said he was troubled about his daughter. Lie was not at All sure she was Happy these Days. She was too feverishly Gay too restless too eager. Her dark eyes were much too Bright to suit him. He had hoped that if Sally must make a Choice of one of the numerous Young men who always had clustered around her like bees baiting Over a Flower that it would be someone like Young Reynolds but he must have been mistaken in thinking that Sally had been taken with the lad. She would not have forgotten him so soon when be went away so unexpectedly. Sam Blair had been sorry shout that. But he had been convinced that the lad had had Good reason that in time he would return to offer it he was not As convinced now that Sally although she wore Corey porters ring on her slender Finger was in love with him. A a in a not in any hurry to lose my Little or. Blair said. Especially not in any hurry to Lese her to Young Porter he might have added. But he had nothing in particular against the boy except that he wag a bit wild had had too much of the Good things of this world. If Sally was sure he was the right Man for her Ber father would have to be satisfied too. He did not see As much of Sally As he had for awhile so that he did not find it easy to talk these matters Over with her. Quot of not in any Sally returned stopping to Lay a Light Caress on her father forehead. That was not exactly True she was in a hurry now. Outside Corey s Horn already was honking impatiently for her to join him. Sally wanted to be in a hurry. Then there a not time to think or to remember. A a in a not Rushing into anything. ass she wanted to Ruh. To run to dance to live on the Edge of excitement and thrills surely that was the Hesi Way to forget what might have been. Not to think of what was going to be the Only Way has knew to try to fill that aching emptiness. Of. She was doing a very Good Job As she had promised herself she would of being the old Sally Blair again. But not quite Good enough to satisfy her father s keen Loving eyes. A Tell me on he said before he relinquished her after that Light Caress. A do you love Corey my dear Are you ame lie is the one you want i rather hoped it might be someone else at one time he did not need to name Dan Reynolds. Sally would know whom her father meant. A there is no one else a Sally said. And flinched because it was so True. If Only there had been if Only that someone had wanted her then she would have been sure of very sure indeed. A Don t fret about me Darling a she dimpled at her father in the old Way to reassure him. She laughed almost too gaily she blew him another kiss before she ran out of the room Down the Long flight of stops into a White world covered with a thick Blanket it Snow the firs of the season. Corey jumped out of his roadster to open the door for her. He Blue eyes surveyed her with admiration and approval. Approval that held the Pride of Possession. So was so pretty Hie Bally to Sweet so Gay. Her dark eyes were so Bright her Cheeks so flushed. She looked like a Princess in her Beautiful fur coat with its Matching fur Cap under which her dark curls escaped to Frame her Lovely face. She had been Worth fighting for Worth waiting for Worth winning. And Corey had won As he had known he would. A i have a Surprise for you a he told her As they whirled along the White Road at the fast reckless Speed that carried them through All the hours they spent together. A a in a going to get a party together All the old gang and go up to Lake Placid for the skiing. Soon after Christmas. The Snow should he just right by then. We should have a very Gay time of it. What do you say would you like that my Sweet a a he threw a Brief Side glance at her wanting to see How she would like his Surprise. But her face was averted. He Only could see the Sweet curve of her Cheek the sweep of her Long lashes. She did not answer for a moment so that he thought she might not have heard him and said again a you would like it you Sally a her answer came promptly this time. A of course like it very much Corey a Sally said. She was glad they were travelling at such fast Speed. She was glad that Corey could not look into her a Yea. That he thought she had not heard him above the Roar of the motor. For then he would not be Able to hear her hearts painful hammering. He could not see the pain in her dark eyes depth. At first which was a by sue had not answered right away. Sally had wanted to cry out no. No she had wanted to say i done to want to go anywhere where there is skiing. I done to want to limb to the top of any Mountain. For All of that would remind her too vividly too poignantly of Dan. Dan who had been the King of skiis. Dan who belonged in that White world of the big outdoors but Sally said a of course. Cd like it very much she did not cry out in protest. What if it did bring Back this stifling nostalgia Start her heart hammering again it might remind her of Dan. Or it might prove that she had forgotten him. It might convince her that the things she told herself were True that she no longer cared for Dan. That she no longer believed in him. She had to be convinced of that some time. Or she could not go on pretending. She might As Well take this Way of facing it. Dan had left her world. She could go Back to his. Perhaps then she could put him out of her heart forever fill that emptiness. To be continued on an average a very worker in England loses 28 Days annually through illness.
