DOMESTIC TEMPEST
CHAPTER VI
3 TUX cams home aneApecttdly
th end of July.
- The circumstance of her re
' turn had an ominous air. Bruce
i was with her and they had with
them, beside Belle's ever-present
personal maid, the servant couple
from the apartment in town. Can-t-
eta? uw neither of theis that
night or the next day. but when'
tsver she passed through the halls
the jould near their voices:
Bruce's low and, It seemed, plead
ing, Belle's strident; and once she
thought the heard Belle sobbing
angrily.
She saw Bruce alone for an nv-
v atant the next evening before
dinner. It had been weeks only
since she'd teen him, but she was
shocked by the change in him, he
looked to tired and so almost old.
She said lightly, "It's been a tough
"t 1 summer ia tcn, hssnt it, Uiicle
Bruce?"
He sighed. "Plenty tough,'' he
agreed.
, TTou shouldn't have stayed
S there all the time," she said.
Candace taw his expression
change he stood ttraighter, as
though he had snapped to atten
tion, and his lace took on the
harried expression that the serv
ants invariably wore during one
of Belle's not Infrequent rages
and she knew that Belle had en
tered the room behind her. She
thought indignantly, she treats
him as though he were her serv
ant too. She turned slowly, her
chin unconsciously lifting, and
allowed Belle to advance without
making any move toward her.
"You've grown older," she said.:
. Candace laughed. "It's a habit
we all have," she agreed.
Belle looked almost apoplectic
at that; but Candace's tone had
been pleasant and there was noth
ing in her expression to indicate
malice, and after a tense instant
Belle apparently decided to let
the remark go.
... -
t fTHE conversation during dinner
1 degenerated, in their combined
efforts to keep the peace, into
almost childish prattle between
herself , and Bruce, having to do
(with bow she had been, keeping
fierself occupied.
4 i Then Bruce said, "Which eol-
... Lge is it to be this fall?"
1 f Candace smiled; her face lighted
fcappily. .'I've .been- dying for a
" (chance to tell you both," she con-
' Iftded. fl go into training at Mer-t-ymoimi
Hospital next week,1?
"You what?" Belle questioned
sharply; 'a .r-..:
Her tone erased Candace's smile.
& She repeated carefully, "I'm going
,4 Unto training, -I'm going to be a
burse." .
. "Oh, you are," Belle said, smirk-
tng. "How romantic! How too, too
' charming! So there's to be a glori-
Bed scullery maid in the family!
How delightful." She dropped her
a tone of sarcasm. "Get that insane
ddea out of your head at once,"
s 'she ordered.
Out of sight, under cover of
the tablecloth, Candace clasped
her hands tightly together to still
fthelr trembling. "I haven't the
slightest intention of doing that,"
the said. '
-.. Bruce laid, "Til manage this,
J-. Belle."
I She whirled on him. "May I
- point out to you," she remarked,
her tone dripping scorn, "that un
idcr the circumstances you can
V x scarcely claim to be able to m an
il (age anything? I'll manage this
I and I prefer," she added sharply,
: I'to do it alone."
. ' B Candace turned her back so as
not to see Bruce's ignominious
retreat from the room. What the
trouble between them was she
'couldn't guess, but she was hot
i , with shame for him at Belle's
treatment end her indignation
lashed her into a fury that made
. her forget some of her own fear.
Belle had lighted a cigaret and
, was inhaling deeply and then ex
f ' pelling the smoke in angry gusts.
- ' "It's a simple reversion to type.
: I suppose," she said. "Peasants
don't mind doing things like that
And your father was a peasant
, With a gift of music, but a peasant I
. Tor ail oi tnat. Did it ever occur
". to you," she demanded, "in your
teal to do things that are ex-
' pected of you, that something
might be expected of you for all
I've done?"
Candace said miserably, "Of
course, Aunt Belle. I owe you a
v Hot, I know. But "
V "BUT what? But you're just
. i like your mother in that,
' that's the- answer, not an ounce

(wasted my whole youth doing

chance to marry well so that she

t ' Remembered bitterness threat
ened for an instant to choke her;
she brought herself up sharply.
"You might at . least have con
sulted me about your plans. Why
didn't you?"
Candace said honestly "It never
once occurred to me that you'd
, ibe at all Interested, or care what
. J did."
. "I don't care, really," Belle ad

Interest it in getting you off my
hands as satisfactorily as possible,
in a way that will reflect no dis
credit on me and that will be
permanent." She narrowed her
eyes, peering at Candace through
the smoke of her cigaret "I'm
going to be unpleasantly frank,"
she said. "You have not a penny
to your name but what I choose
to give you; you havent an ex
traordinary brain; you have noth
ing at all but a certain youthful
prettiness. If you take my advice,
you'll go off to a good college
while it's still possible, and you'll
take every opportunity to meet
eligible men, to make a good mar
riage. That's your only chance
for safety. If"
A thought struck her and the
paused speculatively. "It's pos
sible," she said, her eyebrows
raised, "that in your quiet way
you've been hrd of me ell this
time. Ifs possible there's already
a man in the picture. Are you,"
she demanded, "in love with
Peter?"
Petert It was as though Belle
had accused her of being in love
with a brother; Candace's face
flamed.
Belle took the blush at con
firmation. "I thought so," she said.
"That explains the nursing notion.
I suspected something of the tort
a long time ago"
Candace said quickly, "Aunt
Belle, stop! It isnt Peter, Petar
has nothing to do with it, he
doesn't even know"
"Then." Belle said slowly, after
a long pause, "I'll finish what I
was saying. If you cant manage
matrimony, which Is the safest
career for any woman, you 11 have
to earn your living. But it will
have to be in some dignified field.
YouH promise that or my help
stops right now. Well, what have
you to say?"

Into training, of course."
Belle crushed out her latest cig
aret with an air of finality. "In
that rase, there's nothing more to
be said. Except that, since you do
it against my wishes, the sooner
you do it the better." She swept
coldly from the room.
