A kind o( wilting process fell over the room. ^William opened the screen and • said, "Come in, Meb." J Papa turned, but I held on to • the poker, though I had lowered lit, like a cane. . Meb stopped In the doorway. -I Iknow this is a bad time to come— •when everybody's saying goodby. ;l was just bringing a little going- i away present.': . "Come on in ... come on in," 'JPapa said.

But I think he's too young. It's not right for 19-year-old boys to get mixed up with all the rackets of a soldier. You know, you're shoved right inlo the middle of folks who'll do anything. Thai's why I'm against his going." He 'j turned to me. "But I reckon your [mind's made up?" [ I didn't answer him. I was | thinking how strange Papa was ! when he came up against some- J thing like a wall. He never tried ,lo go over or around or under.

Like the time he took us to Memphis to the Mid-South Fair and we stayed in the Peabody Hotel; and that was the year he didn't even have a job. '. Mama came back into the room. "I don't know wliere Wallace went off to." She saw Mcb. They spoke to each other, and Meh held out the present toward ,ne, I put the poker aside, crossed the room and took the package, a small one. "Thank you very much." I said. It was like rehearsing a play. "I'd better go now," she said. "I'll go with you," I said. "I'll wait out here for you." ~ e went out. I knew she did not want them to see our goodbys. "I'd better go," I said. I turned to William. "I need bus fare to Corinth." "Oh, law," Mama said. "I was about to forget" She ran into the kitchen. William held out • half dollar "That's all I've got, Don." "Thank you." "Listen," Papa said. "Listen." • • « * 'T'HEN Mama was back. She was *• taking money from a Jelly glass. "They's exactly $2 here. Preacher money." ! "I don't need it, Mama. Tbis Is enough." I showed her the half dollar. "You might need it—for something—and I want you to have It." She poured the money out into her hand and put It into my pocket. "Like as not it's the last thing I'll ever give you. You're walking in your Uncle Willieam's shoes . . ." "Listen," Papa safd. "I don't have a penny on me right now, bul you go by the slorc and tell old man Wilkes to let you have S5 —put it on the grocSVy bill. You might need it." "I won't need It." "You might, you hear? Now you go by. Promise me you'll go by." | "All rijhL You'll tuv* to UU1 Wallace gooilby for me." I kissed Mama. "Goodby, Papa." He more or less put his arms around me. "Goodby, William." We shook hands. I picked up my suitcase and started out. I could hear Papa behind me saying, "We'll write you all about the football games . . . and everything . . ." Meb was wailing in the yard for me. We started the long walk to Young's slation. . She walked a few yards away from me. "Some people* want to get killed," she said. "I could understand something like that" "I'm not lhat craxy." "But you're pretty crazy, Don. We both are." We slopped on the knoll behind the .station; from there we would be able to see the bus wlnn it topped the hill half a mile away. "I'm sorry you're leaving on the bus; it would b« so much better if you left oti the train. You understand?" "Perfeclly." "Would you understand if I asked you to give back that present?" "Now who's crazy?" "Me. Would you give It back?"So you can give U to your friend?" "No, I jurt want !t back." I gave her the present. "I'm taking this back becauie it's not worthy o£ you—I hope that explains. As for me and William, Ihe least said the better. Men understand men and women understand women." W^E waited on the knoll. I looked down at the .suitcase, one Uncle Brack had left at our house so long ago I'd forgotten how long he stayed. "You're sill! thinking about William?" she said. "Yes." 1 looked away from her. I was not hurt or angry. I felt as I did once when I went running out lo tell Papa something—excited, mouth open—and swallowed a bee. She sat down on the suilcas« and looked up at mo, her eyes as bright as her hair, smiling. "Well, after all, three is a magic number." (Ta B« Continued) FLASH CAMERAS up For Pictures Any Time!
