Excerpt from Phyllis Anne

A house, he thought, a long way from the crash and reek of the city, but on a highway of its travel, hiding with an air of exclusiveness from the glare of the public road, not large but roomy, an unconventional house, amazingly comfortable. He drew the faintest and most unconscious of sighs and pressed the bell. A moment later, he became unfeignedly glad that it was not a maid but Lida Page herself who came running down the shallow steps to throw open the door and draw him hospitably into the warm hall.

"Randy ... you dear," she said, squeezing the hand he gave her in greeting. "I did so hope it was you. Cart's not come from the hospital yet. We'll have a whole blessed half-hour alone."

"Thank God for that," Randy said tensely and grinned at her bewilderment. "Wasn't that my cue? You made it sound like the draymy at the beginning of the third act ... tense, you know."

"Simpleton," Lida returned cordially. "I just sent Junior round for your bag. Bob was at home. And he said he'd pack it before he started to dress himself; and have it ready for Junior to pounce on. Can you dress for dinner in twenty minutes, do you suppose?" "Can do," he boasted briefly, "a complete flip-flap in eight. What's up, Lida?"
