' XJK'DRED took Randy's advice
'..'. AJ. that next day and stayed
home from the clinic. She felt she
8ad earned a day off. There were
tany number of small matters,
-long neglected, that she could ut
tend to. Also she thought it would
be a good time to attend to some
,, thing else that had beeh bothering
, .her. She wanted to visit the Home
Iwhere the little crippled boy,
I Jimmy, had been placed, to make
certain for herself that he was
iwen ana nappy.
B Hildred said, "I've been worried
about Jimmy. I feel I am the one
responsible for having him put in
a boarding home and so I want
to make certain he is all right. I
want to pay an unexpected visit
and see what I find."
Hildred had said she was Eoine
Ion this unscheduled visit in order
to see what she could find. But
nothing could have prepared her
for the discovery she was to make.
fEor there, parked in the crum
TBling driveway was a familiar
limousine. If it had not become so
Vfamiliar of late she could not have
credited her eyesight.
"What on earth is Mr. Lurien
doing here?" she asked Robin,
who jumped down from behind
the wheel to greet her with his
friendly smile that made no secre
any more of his adniirati"- and
respect. "At least I suppose he is
here," Hildred tacked on, nodding
helplessly toward the Home.
, '"That he sure is," Rotin re
turned promptly. "As to what he
I is up to, well, maybe you can find
that out, Miss, rotter than me. I'd
j say your guess is as good as mine."
But even as he said that neither
of them was left guessing. For out
of the front door with its elabor
ate, if somewhat dated, lace cur
tains came Lucien leading a little
ibpy. He was walking slowly, so
ttyat his gait would match that of
itlfce child's more halting one, due
19 a brace worn on one thin limb,
ltis head was bent as if he were
sicik'ne to the child in low, and

fShe will thing you.' a good in

now, his dark eyes almost teasing.

you always are, my dear, I know
that my mother will also like you

encouraging words. '
Hildred wanted to run to meet
them but she stood at if planted
to the spot. She could not ever)
open the gate, a service Robin
performed for her. Only then did
Lucien look up to see her.
He did not seem surprised, or
nonplussed.TIe gave her his slight
smile, with a nod of greeting. He
said, in a pe-fectly ordinary, matter-of-fact
voice, 'Well, here We
Hildred said, "So 1 see." And
did. in part. The things she had
told Lucien last evening at dinner
must indeed have found under
standing. She had not dreamed,
however, hp had been interested
to this extent.
"I borrowed Jimmy for the
afternoon," Lucien said. His dark
eyes smiled into hers now, deeply,
as she had found they could when
he was the Lucien she liked, the
man who was her friend. "We're
going for adrive, into the coun
try. We've a hamper packed with
lunch. And we'd be very pleased
if you would join us, wouldn't we,
UNTIL now the little boy had
not raised his heac, or his
eyes. Hildred saw, with a stab of
real pain, that he had grown thin
ner and whiter during his brief
"I don'i like it here," Jimmy re
turned, but in such a iow mumble
that it was difficult to distinguish
the words. "I don't like it at all. I
don't want to stay."
"We'll see about that," Hildred
said quickly. She saw the child
was ready to burst into tears.
Long pent-up tears of horribly re
"You mean maybe I won't have
to stay?" The little fellow looked
up at her now, his underlip
quivering painfully. He had enor
mous dark eyes and a thick crop
of dark hair.
"Maybe not all the time. We'll
see about that, too," Hildred prom
ised readily. Her own eyes were
misty with tears. "Right now,"
she continu?d. straightening to
her feet again, "you're going for
was a thought she was to remem
ber and dwell upon later,
many times. I
Lucien promised Jimmy that
they would repeat this happy day
soon and Hildred told the little
boy that she was going to take
him to her house often to spend
the weekend. "So you must prom
ise to be a good boy in between,"
she finished. "You must not stay
off by yourself, away from the
other children. You must try to
cat all your food, clean up your
plate every time, and you must
promise me, please, Jimmy, that
you will not cry any more."
Jimy promised manfully, though
tears already seemed close as they
drew up once more before the
Home. He said he did try, in fact,,
as hard as he could. "The food
sticks in my throat," he explained,
his big eyes solemn and large in
his peaked little face. "It Just
won't go. down. The other kids,
they mean all right, but hey don't
like me, I guess. I don't cry much,
except tr hn- 4ct& lk4'aa in
tinf fSWtaitt not being allowed
to go out the gate."
"I know," Hildred said, her own
eyes misty. She gathered him
close to her for a minute, feeling
his thin little ribs, the fierce
pounding of his heart "But you
must try even harder, and keep
on trying and after awhile it will
be all right, honestly it will." But
she was not sure. For some chil
dren, yes, but maybe not for
SHE said as much to Lucien, be

second time, at the apartment
where she lived. "What Jimmy
needs is someone all the time,
she told him. "The security of
"I agree with you," Lucien said,
his voice unexpectedly gentle. "I
give you my promise as Jimmy
did to try to do my part"
Hildred thanked him -though
of course she had meant things
that even Lucien's generosity, and
money, could not give.
"I'm beginning to ace what it
means, this being a county nurse."
Lucien's eyes really smiled into
hers as he held her hand, a while
longer than necessary, in parting.
"Are all of them like you, wanting

flashed Lucien smile to show
him how much she appreciated
what he was doing, how truly
wonderful she thought it was oj

'Yoij must come with us,"
Lucien said once more. "We shall
be greatly disappointed ii you
So Hildred found herself belr.g
assisted into the back seat by
Rabin, with Jimmy tucked be
tween her and Lucien.
It was a wonderful picnic, not
just because the big wicker ham
per was packed so full of appetiz
ing delicacies, but because tht
company proved so congenial.
Once out in the hills with the
canopy of blue sky overhead
Jimmy turned into a normal little
boy. A rowdy little boy, full o!
fun and pranks and laughter. Sc
that soon Lucien and Hildred
and even Robin who was included
in all the merrymaking, were be

said, tand meant it 'The
wonderful part though, Lucien, it
that you would plan it, make it
possible." She still could not eet
over that; it was another side of
this strange man of many moods.
"Why hot J am human, if I
am a Lanier, Lucien replied.
"After you told me about Jimmy
last night I suddenly got this in

not confident it would work out as
well as it has. At least not until
you popped up and joined us
which is what actually has made
it the perfect day it has turned

Hildred shook her head. "A
good nurse" she was quoting
Randy now "does rot let per
sonalities, and sentiment, affect
her. I don't mean she is not kind
and humanitarian. But of course
it is only sensible to realize you
one person alone cannot do
all you would like to do. I wish I
could take all the Jimmies and
other children I know to my heart
and give them all my love. But I
have to try not to; I have to fight
against it But I believe, once
more, in that middle road I
think occasionally as with
Jimmy I can make an exception
and still be a good nurse, I hope!"
"I think you can." His hand
clasp tightened. "I think you are
a very good nurse. I think you are
a fine woman. I say that as the
highest tribute a man can pay a
woman and I mean it, Hildred."
She saw that he did so that,

"I wish ..." Lucien began, then
stopped as abruptly. "Never mind
that now. Maybe someday I will
tell you what I started to wish, if
the time ever comes when such a
wish could I- made possible."
She could not imagine what he
meant, but she felt the hot color
spreading up into her face; she
felt again an odd presentiment
The time would come when she
would kiow what Lucien had al
most wished for.
But now he raised her hand, as
was his custom, to his lips in fare
