BUT EVEN THAT HAD WORKED OUT AS SHE WANTED. RICO HAD COME BACK TO HER, AND WAS DUTIFULLY MARRIED TO HER. AND NOW, WHEN SHE WAS TWENTY-FIVE AND HE WAS THREE MONTHS OLDER, THEY WERE A CHARMING MARRIED COUPLE. HE FLIRTED WITH OTHER WOMEN STILL, TO BE SURE. HE WOULDN'T BE THE HANDSOME RICO IF HE DIDN'T.

YOU HAD ONLY TO SEE THE UNEASY BACKWARD GLANCE AT HER, FROM HIS BIG BLUE EYES: JUST LIKE A HORSE THAT IS EDGING AWAY FROM ITS MASTER: TO KNOW HOW COMPLETELY HE WAS MASTERED. SHE, WITH HER ODD LITTLE MUSEAU, NOT EXACTLY PRETTY, BUT VERY ATTRACTIVE; AND HER QUAINT AIR OF PLAYING AT BEING WELL-BRED, IN A SORT OF CHARADE . . .
