If Denton hadn't come along, would she still be blissfully letting her father run her life?
Denton might have a lot of girls fooled, but she knew him too well.
The last thing Denton needed was a fiery redhead with a tendency to speak her mind.
The last part she had decided only in the last few weeks, but so far she hadn't found the opportune time to tell either her father or Denton.
It wouldn't be easy to tell Denton the marriage was off.
What Denton wanted, he got - one way or another, and lately he seemed driven by some inner demon.
Tonight she would break the engagement with Denton... then she would face her father.
She parked her gray Thunderbird behind Denton's bright red sports car and climbed the steps to the porch.

Father isn't marrying Denton...
Does Denton know that?
I've gone from Dad to Denton.
Denton is going places.
Obviously Mom had joined the ranks of those who thought marrying Denton was the only way she could live up to the O'Hara name.
One of the couples was Denton and Clarissa.
Are you and Denton looking for a house?
She was half listening to him while she watched Denton reluctantly leave Clarissa and glance around the crowd.
Denton had spotted them.
She had a brief view of Denton's face before her own plunged into the agent's chest.
Denton scowled at her as he stopped beside them.
Denton turned the scowl on him.
The agent scurried away and Denton immediately turned on her.
But Denton was relentless.
When Denton sunk his teeth into something, he held on.
She was letting Denton get to her again.
She rejoined the party and even danced a few times with Denton, who was perplexed by her sudden change in mood.
Denton paused with his fork half way to his mouth, the saucer of cake perched delicately on his other hand.
Mrs. O'Hara glanced quickly at Denton and then Megan, but she said nothing.
Denton wasn't nearly as unhappy as he was going to be when he found out she was skipping the state.
Last night's confrontation with Denton was proof enough that she couldn't afford to tolerate any more interference in her life - from anyone.
I could tell Denton.
Denton would certainly try.
I've heard enough of that from Denton.
I'd rather Denton didn't know about it because I want to avoid a scene.
No, he wasn't devastatingly handsome, like Denton.
According to Denton, there was only one reason why a man would give her so much attention.
Had Denton sent the man?
No, Denton didn't know she was leaving the state.
Too bad Denton didn't hear that - even if it did come from the lips of a child.
Denton has been asking where you are.
"Wouldn't Denton be proud if he could see you now," she muttered sarcastically as she hurried into the cabin.
Surely Denton hadn't found her already.
Of course, Clara would hardly miss the fact that her skin was lighter where Denton's ring had been.
Denton - it had to be.
So Denton had decided to follow her after all.
Of course, Denton was no fool.
Eventually he would have thought about Scott Muldrow, and Denton could be persuasive.
So that was how Denton had found her.
Was he up to no good, or had Dad sent him - or maybe Denton?
Either Dad or Denton had sent him to spy on her.
His air of cool confidence was more than likely the result of frequent business contacts - one of Denton's colleagues?
Not according to Denton.
But Denton had destroyed that notion.
Actually, the silence was beginning to get on her nerves, but she didn't want him reporting that fact to her father or Denton.
Was it a guess or had Denton filled him in?
Denton was the one who hated to swim in the ocean.
On the other hand, it might not have been anything Denton had said.
Sleep didn't come easily that night, and when it finally overtook her, it was filled with snakes and insects - and worse yet, Denton.
Probably, but only because it would mean Denton was right.
She would be getting ready for a dance or the movies - with Denton?
Thinking of Denton made it much less attractive.
She could have made it without the help of Denton, Dad, or the man he had sent.
As she watched him drive away, she marveled at the difference between him and Denton.
Why did she feel so depressed when she was with Denton and so elated when she was with Keaton - Justin?
Denton was flashier, more polished and ever the gentleman in his behavior.
Of course, Denton wasn't physically attracted to her - nor was she to him.
Denton hated the yellow sundress with its spaghetti straps, but it was one of her favorite dresses.
Turning first one way and then the other in front of the mirror, she tried to decide what it was about the dress that Denton found so objectionable.
As he strode around the car to the driver's side with his usual grace, it struck her that Denton never looked so nice in casual clothes.
Denton cultured his grace and worked at presenting the proper image.
Several times that evening, she caught herself comparing him to Denton.
Why did Denton keep entering her mind when she was enjoying the evening so much with Justin?
They had covered more topics tonight than she and Denton had discussed in their entire relationship.
Like Denton, he wasn't going to give up without a fight.
So Denton had been calling.
If Denton found out about Justin, there would be a scene, of that she was certain.
The only way Denton was going to accept the termination of their engagement was if she publicly announced it, and that was what she would have to do as soon as she returned.
No, the conversation hadn't degenerated, though Denton certainly would have insisted so.
Denton lifted one side of his upper lip.
Denton could be a royal snob at times, but this time he had outdone himself.
Did Denton know Justin?
And when had Denton learned about the stipulations on the money?
Her heart resumed beating with a painful surge when Justin's attention returned to Denton.
Denton's laugh was harsh.
Denton shook his head.
Denton crammed his hands into his pockets and his jaw muscles worked as he glared at her.
Before the sting of his words had time to penetrate, Justin paused, throwing a quick jab to Denton's mouth.
Denton's head jerked back and hit the wall with a sharp crack.
How could Denton say those things about her?
She tossed the wet rag at Denton and stood looking on as he wiped the blood from his face.
Denton glowered at her.
Denton dabbed at his mouth with the cloth and stared sourly at the blood.
Denton stared after her.
She maneuvered the car around Denton's vehicle and sped down the drive.
Consumed by agonizing defeat, she whirled and started down the stairs, narrowly missing Denton.
"Shut up, Denton" Her answer was punctuated with a sob as she plunged past him, taking the stairs two at a time.
What would Denton know about how she felt?
Denton must be laughing himself silly.
Denton stopped at the door and knocked.
That was strange language coming from Denton.
How could she expect Denton to understand her dream of purchasing the place?
Denton reached for the suitcase.
She dabbed at her swollen eyes again and Denton shook his head.
Clarissa and Denton were a perfect match.
Denton's calm voice cut through her thoughts.
Were those words actually coming from Denton's mouth?
She had been treating Denton badly.
Denton is supposed to be here any minute.
Even Denton was a changed man.
Where were Dad and Denton?
At that moment the elevator door opened and Denton stepped out, followed closely by her father.
She glanced at Denton, who had instantly recognized Justin.
Denton waved a hand in dismissal.
Denton disappeared into the room, and she glanced up at her father, acutely aware that Justin was less than twenty feet away.
Denton joined them, hands tucked into his dark slacks.
Denton glanced at Mr. O'Hara and winked.
Denton settled into a chair.
If this hadn't been an engagement party for Denton and Clarissa, she would have stayed at home.
Not that it mattered, except that kind of talk would make it uncomfortable for Denton and Clarissa.
Denton fussed over her, bringing her drinks and offering hors d'oeuvres.
