She wore her brown-velvet, instead, looking quite modish, a sable wrap, gift of the groom, lending genuine magnificence. Alma was there, of course, in a beautiful fox scarf, also gift of the groom, and locked in a pale kind of tensity that made her seem more than ever like a little white flower to Leo Friedlander, the sole other attendant, and who during the ceremony yearned at her with his gaze.
Overcome with the beauty of his unsuspicious guest, he basely attempted to divert her affections from her husband an attempt which the noble Friedlander repelled with becoming scorn.
Sometimes he called David in, and talked at length and with enthusiasm about such human interest things as the Staphylococcus pyogenes aureus, and the Friedlander bacillus. The older man would listen, but his eyes were oftener on Dick than on the microscope or the slide. David went to the bookcase and got down a large book, much worn, and carried it to his desk.
"I'm a woman who needs a man to baby her, Alma. That's the cure for me. Not to let me would be the same as to kill me. I've been a bad, weak woman, Alma, to be so afraid that maybe Leo Friedlander would steal you away from me. We'll make it a double wedding, baby!" "Mama, mama, I'll never leave you." "All right then, so you won't think your new father and me want to get rid of you.
