ROUND UP

" Not very."
" Well, then, what do you say if we have a high-ball? And it'll be a secret between you and L"
They drank in silence and Celia pressed a button by the door.
" You may take the bottle and tray," she told Forbes. "And
now," she said to Bartlett, " we'll go out on the porch and see as
much as we can see. You'll have to guess the rest."
Gregg, having changed his shirt and collar, joined them. "Well," he said to Bartlett, " have you seen everything? "
" I guess I have, Mr. Gregg," lied the guest readily. " It's a wonderful place ! "
" We like it. I mean it suits us. I mean it's my idear of a real home. And Celia calls it her love nest." . '" So she told me," said Bartlett.
" She'll always be sentimental," said her husband.
He put his hand on her shoulder, but she drew away. " I must run up and dress," she said.
" Dress! " exclaimed Bartlett, who had been dazzled by her
flowered green chiffon.
" Oh, I'm not going to really dress," she said. " But I couldn't wear this thing for dinner! "
" Perhaps you'd like to clean up a little, Bartlett," said Gregg. ` I mean Forbes will show you your room if you want to go up." " It might be best," said Bartlett.
Celia, in a black lace dinner gown, was rather quiet during the elaborate meal. Three or four times when Gregg addressed her, she seemed to be thinking of something else and had to ask, " What did you say, sweetheart?" Her face was red and Bartlett imagined that she had " sneaked " a drink or two besides the two helpings of Bourbon and the cocktail that had preceded dinner.
" `'Vell, I'll leave you," said Gregg when they were in the livingroom once more. " I mean the sooner I get started, the sooner I'll be back. Sweetheart, try and keep your guest awake and don't let him die of thirst. Au revoir, Bartlett. I'm sorry, but it can't be helped. There's a fresh bottle of the Bourbon, so go to it. I mean help yourself. It's too bad you have to drink alone."
" It is too bad, Mr. Bartlett," said Celia when Gregg had gone.
" What's too bad ?" asked Bartlett.
" That you have to drink alone. I feel like I wasn't being a good hostess to let you do it. In fact, I refuse to let you do it. I'll join you in just a little wee sip."
