CHAPTER XXX
DEOPLB lived with broken
Heart, Gypsy reminded her-
elt. They went on ordering food,
bathing babies, tusking beds,
ending Mocking. She waant the
only woman In the world to whom
thla shattering thing bad hap
pened. It was well, only that
' the had thought aha and Tom
wonld be different.
. "It's all wrong." Gypsy told
benelt stubbornly and angrily,
"The whole system la wrong. The
man Is tree and the woman tied,
as soon as children coma along.
Naturally he's attracted to the
aort of girl be knew before mar
rlage footloose, always well-
dressed and groomed and scented,
Be sees his wife In her old dress
ing gown, weary and headachy and
. overworked. They havent money
enough for outside amusements.
Ha gets bored-
( At this stage of her reflections
she usually began to cry. She
cried a great deal these days when
Tom wasnt around. When he
wu at home they were coldly,
- stiffly polite to each other. The
promise of the earlier April days
had faded and bow it rained,
coldly, steadily, nnfeellngly, for
days. Gypsy was distracted. It
meant staying Indoors with the
baby. His endless small garments
were nerer dry. There were al
ways limp lines of damp things
stretched high In the kitchen. To
crown it all Else fell 111 and
telephoned she would hare to
stay In bed for a week.
Gypsy struggled with It all
dishes, wash, meals, mending.
sometimes she straightened a
weary back to look about her in
Bsizlement. Waa this really she,
Gypsy uoreu. this tired woman
vets the circles nnder her eyes?
She was nerer really rested now,
When Tom politely urged her to
get another maid temporarily she
gave him a lifeless look, bitter
smile that was mora cutting than
, words. She did not call the
agency. It assuaged some deep
anger la ner, this battle with the
work and her own weariness.
' "I cant go on like thla: I
eaaX" the girl whispered to her
self one dreary afternoon. April
twilight waa closing In and rain
pelted against the windows. Sev-
aral blocks away the fog horns
brayed ceaselessly. The grocery
order bad been late. David had a
eoagh and she had been attend
ing him.
.' ,
CUDDBNLY the whole thing was
w too maeh for her. The thin
shell of composure which she had
been building ap for the past
week cracked and she began to
ory wildly, bitterly, in the alienee
and gloom of the little apartment,
verythlng was hateful, dreary.
BnpossiDiei t
; The boll rang and she looked
about In a freuy, snatching at a
handkerchief to mop her eyes. She
wsa a fright: she could not pos
sibly see a caller lust now. But
rwhen the summons sounded aealn
j-ong habit drove her to the door
jo answer It Probably, she
(thought. It would be the little
'wuur rouna tne corner.
Hunt Gibson stood in the door-
jean, rangy, his soft bat
"How's Suor Gypsy was making
conversation, Just to keep him. to
fend oft that dreadfully alone
feeling.
"8he's Una I bavent seen her
lately. Sue's a grand girl."
"Isn't sbeT" And then Gypsy waa
d road fully afraid she waa going to
cry again, thinking of what good
times sbe and 8ua had bad to
gether a few years ago. What a
silly little fool she had been, to
think life could go on Ilk that!
"What's wrong, really?"
She stared at him. "I dont know
what you mean."
He waa standing now, towering
above her, looking very tall and
protective. "Something's troubling
you. I wish you'd tell me."
Sbe essayed a laugh but It wasnt
a very successful one. "I told you
1 hsd the blues."
Urnm ..." He continued to re
gard her thoughtfully and Gypsy
Hushed, shifting her gase from his
Intent one.
Tell you what. It It's anything I
can tlx let me know." His hand
clasp, warm and electric, lingered
with her.
"Thanks. I will."
The moment passed and aa he
turned to go they talked of com
monplace things. Gypsy would call
him before nine that night Would
that be all right? Perfect, he told
her. And then he was gone.
Gypsy went about the business of
getting dinner in a more cheerful
frame of mind. What a genuinely
nice person Hunt was! She did like
him. She forgot her own troubles,
real or imagined, to such an extent
that when Tom came soberly down
the hall at 1:30 he beard
whistling.
He stopped to listen and the sul
len look on his race faded. He let
himself In quietly. Gypsy waa set
ting the table. Sh had on a many-
nmee-washed bins print frock and
her hair was burnished like dark
copper. She wheeled at his
trance and the whistling stopped.
The shadow slipped down over her
face once more.
rjX)M said. "Oh." rather foolishly
am sioaa. Blaring ac
"Hello." She was very pottta.
very formal, very remote.
"Hello." The stubborn express! oa
sbe had come to know was tike a
forbidding mask. Neither woald
give aa Inch.
"Thought I heard music."
"Oh, I guess that was the radio
next door.
She presented her cheek, cold and
rigid, for his kiss. He went down
the hall and ahe eculd bear him
hanging np his coat and splashing
hi the bathroom. Sbe beard his
alow steps go Into the bedroom and
knew he was bending over the
baby's crib.
"Better today, huhr

to understand. Then ahe said, "Oh,
yea, the baby. He hasn't eoaghed

wont be a minute,"
"I dldnt mean to hurry you,"
Tom said, irritated at her assump
tion that he waa the impatient male.
He went into the living room and
sat down In the Ug chair Hunt had
lately vacated, looked about
gloomily and unfolded his
paper. One this bad seemed the
cosiest retreat in the world because
it had held what two people thought
meet dear. Now It was Just a shell
table and chairs, books, tamps
and pictures were eold and Inani
mate because love was altered.
Tom reached for the ashtray and
his eyebrows west ap.
Gypsy did not smoke but there
waa a stub in the tray and there
were asnes. Ana uypsy naa been
whistling.
"Rotten day," he offered la the
silence aa Gypsy brought in hot
