Meb saw me but she made no sign of recognition. I thought there was no doubt that Miss Audie wanted Ihc jewelry for less than the price marked; Ihey said she took out her telephone when Papa, through Congressman Lambert, got the post office salary away from her— not an easy thing to do, since she had given half Ihc money to build a new church when the old one burned down. She was one to make people choose sides: usually they liked her very much or they disliked her. She bought whatever it was she held in her hand and left. I shook • my head at Meb. "Oh, I feel sorry for her," Meb said. "She has everything, and nothing to do—except feed those dogs, and she doesn't have to do that." "Yes, I fee! sorry for the rich too. Money Is such a burden." • "I was nice to her, wasn't 1? ' Mother likes her very much. She Ihinks there's nobody like Miss Audio." "Is your mother here?" "No, why?" ,V "I cajnc 10 tell you something." r* "I already know. I saw Wal,- lace." f held her hands on (he counter. Mine were damp and left Iheir print. "I'm going lonight." , "He lold me that loo." "Are you still not in love* with ', anything?" "I've always been In love with omethiiuz. , , , You should have m i p NO, Smk., U. known that «ges ago." "I knew that much. . . . Aw, I wish I hadn't come up here. Nobody ever told anybody goodby properly. Anyway, I never did. ..." I let go of her hands. I could feel the wall coming between us- I would soon be .speaking into emptiness. All the times we had even so much as laughed together would be caught beyond the wall and I would not be able to hear he slightest echo of it 1 thought: if there is a showdown between me and William, he will win, because he has always won; Wallace is so good-looking he is almost a joke, but William isn't a joke "Do you know how I feel?" Meb said. 'No," I shook my head. » » • * "SOMETIMES 'back home t would be walking along those gray, narrow, cobblesloned strecU, coming from school—in winter it would already be dark when I got out of the lycee. 1 would be afraid—maybe a door would open and swallow me But usually I'd meet an old woman coming from the market, 3 beautiful loaf of bread cradled In her black satchel. I never watched anything except the bread, because it seemed like the bread had saved me. The rest of the way I wouldn't e afraid . . .". She seemed so much older than t, removed, like her mother saying, "The Germans and the French don t hate each other; maybe .fear envy, jealousy, but not hate,' because the French are still playing Beethoven and Mozart and Wagner and Schumann, and the Ger- nans are still reading Hugo and Balzac and Molicre and Flaubert and Racine—or will be, again." "I'm going now, Meb. I'm not saying anything right" I backed o the door. "I'm not saying anything right either." "Gosdby . . ." And I was gone! In my room—when I had picked —I could not decide whether I wanted to leave before Papa and William came home. One minute I would think: I am going now; the next minute I would be searching my room to se« wh»t I had left undone. • I was still sitting on the bed 1 when I heard Papa and William enter the living room, \vilh bag in hand I went downstairs. Papa looked me over carefully. "What kind of stunt are you trying lo pull?" "No kind." ' "Go on. You'll be back my midnight. The idea of going oft at 8 o'clock at night to join the Navy." "No, he means It." William said 'He always means il." '^Where's Wallace?" Papa said. "I don'l know," Mama said. "I'll look. I thought he went to the smokehouse." She left and Papa turned lo me. . He said, "Wallace made like to me it was a joke. You two have cheated and tricked me." "Why did you sign U?" William said. "Give it back lo me, Don. You can think about the Navy a year from now. Wallace and Wllliam'll be off at school. That's enough." "You won't miss me. The only thing you 11 miss is what I'd pay on the grocery bill." • • * T-T1S face got red, and I could * almost see his jaws spread like an adder. I was sorry I had made him so mad. "You'll not gel away with my signature." I dropped my bag and backed toward the mantel. "I'm going to lake thai paper." He started toward me slowly. I backed until my shoulder touched the mantel. I stooped and took the poker nlo my hands. He stopped. I was trembling. "You're my daddy and all ... but you put a hand on me ana this is coming down on your head. Maybe I am a fool, and don't have a lot of things you and your other sons have. . We don't like each other, I guess . . and you'd belter leave it at that. . . ." He wasn't red now, and he was still. I couldn't see William, but I don't think he had moved. (To B« CoaUnatd) Home Grown Hi-Bred Half and Half Cotton Seed $10 Per Hundred Clyde Williams Route 3 Lexington, Tenn.
