"You have so much to give a child," he said haltingly. "I've known it always. That's what I was afraid of, Judy. But I am beginning to see that what you would give would not rob me, after all, but would rather" he hesitated and said, low "enrich me." She said, "There's plenty of time, Matthew.

Holding her, with his cheek against her hair, he said, "I'll never let you go, Judy. You belong to me." He stopped and said, "No, that isn't it is it? We belong together." And after a long time, he asked wonderingly, "I haven't cried since I was a kid. Do you suppose it's because I'm so happy ?" She thought: He hasn't asked it, perhaps he never will, but it will be all right, it has to be all right. Yet he asked it now, urgently, humbly. He asked: "Judy, are yen happy too!"
