(wrong." * s < The screen closed quietly; I .'heard the motor of the station •;iwagon; and then that strange ^country quietness in which time .dripped by. I leaned over for a bunch of honeysuckle, leaned •back, closed my eyes and smelted, i Strong Rower scent made me think •of funerals. M 5 ., T 5 ey . twoultj b« h«e soon. No £., doubt Mama had gone to the Sun--- • rise Service on V'alkcr Mountain ; and was not yet back. And Papa -. —there was no telllnt where -e i'wvfi 1 - es P ec j all y « Wallace and t «illiam had come home for Easter. ;1 Maybe I should have gone by ^Mebs—she might have been *t Jnomc. But in any case Miss Audlc ..would come out and start asking ncfa could tflord w ask anything. Or maybe William might be there; then how would I feel? I had lols of, things to ,-et straight with him. I did not mind being there by myself. So much of my life I had spent alone, waiting for something hearing the clock (when it ran) in Mama's and Papa's room, beating out the time: 9 o'clock, 10 o'clock, n o'clock; a long spool of twine, unrolling endlessly, never broken but knotted about twice each month. • • • A SLIGHT ache ha! commenced around my ankle, but I knew it was only because of tbe way I was sitting. If I had a pillow behind my heel everything would be all right My heel, which was not injured at all. had hurt worse than anything else. "You've developed a pressure point," the nurse said, and that settled il, or seemed to, though my heel kept burning. 1 decided that nobody in a hospital ever worried the least bit so long as they knew what was wrong, could say with confidence, "Thai's a green fracture of the libia, that's lobular pneumonia, that's a pressure point." After three days, I had 'said, not at all cheerfully, that something had to ae done about : y " ressure point," The nurse cheerfully rearranged the ,mall sacks of sand so that my heel touched nothing; [he change was marvelous, inslan- laneous — as once when 1 had burned my flnge s Mama thrust ny hand into a can of cold lard. I wondered why the nurse had not made the rearrangement three days before, but only a small soul would fuss about a "pressure wint" when the world was falling to pieces—I could think that way after the pain was gone. I leaned farthe. back and pushed my leg so that my heel did not touch the couch. That would 1 do for a little while, and they would be here soon. The faint I 1C m»l Read Courier News Classified Ads. to know how wonderful it was to have another leg that was sound and healthy. I thought of Aunt Maudie Sloane {the depot agent's wife): it was said that she could bldw fire out of a burn, a talent more,respected in Old Shiloh than her character, for she smoked where all could see an*, some knew she drank, from time to ime, pure while bootleg whisky those who doubted had only to look in her meal barrel lor th« bottle. I once wrote a poem about her —one Sunday afternoon. Wallace and William were putting up s basketball goal in the back yard; I could see lhat they needed me before they started calling. But 1 wouldn't, answer. "He won't come," William said. That fool's up there writinc • poem." And I, much too removed to be angry, leaned out the window and calmly announced, "He who calleth his brother 2 fool is in danger of hell-fire." What slrange days of unfulnll- ment, of anguish, of s groping for answers, because I believed t'j--e were answers, while William and Wallace didn't even believe in 'he questions. That was the season o< poetry. PICKED up a handful it th« honeysuckle — the smell was .00 much, too sweet—then dropped it on the coffee table. If I had to je born in their land, why couldn't I be :,ke them—the men in their overalls, the heroes who couldn't bo crucified? Something'was different now that I had seen the closed doors, the old signs, the lovermg grayness. Why did they send me home anyway? And still . . there was so little to hold on to. I must always remember that. The room was growing darker. A few new sounds started up— ones that belong only to the Urn* of sundown. I looked at the honeysuckle. If my le r , had not been njured 1 would have kicked the whole bunch of it off the code* able. 1 made some slight mow and my side pained. Aloud I said i don't care if the honeysuckle wilts, but -why don't they come on?"
