THERE ARE SMILES

" Don't get out. I'll drive you back."
" No, you won't. I'll catch a ride. There's a fella. up this way I want to see."
" You were nice to take a chance with me and not to act scared. Will you do it again? "
" Whenever you say."
" I drive in once a week. • I go down to Greenwich Village to visit my sister. Generally on Mondays." .
" Next Monday I'll be on the late shift."
" Let's make it the Monday after."
" That's w long ways off."
" The time will pass. It always does."
It did, but so haltingly ! And the day arrived with such a threat of rain that Ben was afraid she wouldn't come in. Later on, when the threat was fulfilled and the perils of motoring trebled by a steady drizzle and slippery pavements, he was afraid she would. Prudence, he knew, was not in her make-up and if she had an engagement with her sister, nothing short of a flood would prevent her keeping it.
Just before his luncheon time, the Cadillac passed, going south. Its top was up and its squeegee flying back and forth across the front glass.
Through the rain he saw the girl smile and wave at him briefly. Traffic was thick and treacherous and both must keep their minds on it.
It was still drizzling when she reappeared and stopped for him at four.
" Isn't this a terrible day? " she said.
" Not now ! "
She smiled, and in an instant he forgot all the annoyance and discomfort of the preceding hours.
" If we leave the top up, you'll get stoop-shouldered, and if we take it down, we'll be drowned."
" Leave it up. I'm all right."
" Do you mind if we don't talk much ? I feel quiet"
He didn't answer and nothing more was said until they turned east at Mount Morris Park. Then :
" I could find out your name," she said, " by remembering your number and having somebody look it up. But you can Gave me the trouble by telling me."
" My name is Ben Collins. And I could learn yours by demanding to see Your driver's license."
