"She don't want to milk 1 —you could tell that, couldn't you?" "Yes. ma'am." "1 guess it's because we Just ask anything anytime, but I've iiever ashed one to do something 1 wouldn't dp. Now do you blame me? Don't' 1 have a right to it when I've got a boy home from the war?" "When I lift my leg, would you .fix that cushion so it doesn't touch my heel?" gHE adjusted the cushion perfectly; my heel stopped burn- Ing. "Thank you." "You can go to school now . .*." Mama began. The room was in semidarkness. For the first time she looked as 1 had always remembered her, brown, tired, resigned. But there was something new. Somewhere, something had gone wrong for Mama, bad wrong: maybe she knew what il was, but nobody would ever find out from her iipsr—it was buried so well that even she had forgotten. "I say my little plan may work out after all. No reason you can't go to college. Your Wade blooc got you through a war and it certainly ought to get ;-ou through a college, my way a-looking. You can go right along and be a doctor just like Willieam wat going to do—you two arc so much alike, ^ew, Bea, Frances, cause the rain had so much. You can just be another Grandpa Deering, and find that cure he had for T.B. Did I write you George Valley's wife died with T.B.? It was the pitifulest sight, all those children and everything. . . . No. 1 didn't write you. Lots of things like that I didn't write you. I figured you saw enough as it was. Well, it was hardly a month ago, or six weeks, about the time we got your telegram saying you wasn't killed. thai she died. It always happens when the sap starts .• sing. U> her type .anyway. The funeral was awful ... if there's anything In this world pitiful it's a motherless child. The oldest girl's just 15. I'd been saving S5 I was going to give at the Sunrise Service . . . and I just politely slipped il to that oldest girl and -old her to use il however she saw liL . . ." There was a sound in the yard. "Thai's the boys and your dadoy. That's them all right." In the mild darkness I saw Mama's throat quiver. x>wcnng her voice, she said, "Did William write you anything about Meb? ' "No." I started to hart the feeling It was not only too lale to say that but too late for so many other things as well. In another minute we would all be together agnin, face to lace in that room, and whatever was said, whatever happened hnd been decided long ago. I remembered m day when 1 was working for Uncle Lew; in the middle of the afternoon a heavy rain came. All ol us ran for the house, leaving our hoes In the Held, and huddled on the porch: Aunt Modine, Uncle Doris. Be- brought us close together, I fell that all of us ought to be laughing and talking. But nobody said a word, nol even Doris and Frances. We iusl watched the rair while time"" drowned, and I thought how If 1 had been at the other end of the rows when the cloud burst I could have dropped my hoe and run toward Mr. Tonce's house. But il was too late. k • • J COULD hear Wallace, his voice wrong in every aspect, singing his favorite tune: "T.enorft, l.cnor.l. [.ran o'er And kls* me . . ." Then William, talking loud, said. "Somebody's been here." "How do you know?" Wallace said. "Here's a fresh car track." "He ought to join the FBI— oughtn't he to. Papa?" William said, "Hello. Miss Vcrdie." "Guess who's here?" Mama said. Wallace said. "The hero. We've already heard up at the filling station he come home with a private chauflcur and medals hanging from the tail-light" The voices were suddenly hushed. I heard Mama talking, heard her call Meb's name, A warmth, almost a burning covered me: and while 1 tried to hear what was said, only the ticking of Kenny's watch reached my ears. Whatever Mcb had done, or William had done, they would have to tell me: I would not ask. That thought, that decision, was like unblemished strength flowing Into "Are, me; like eating bright, dew-wet FLOORS Laid, Sanded and Finished! • Asphalt Tile • Rubber Tile • Linoleum Tile • Inlaid Linoleum • Wall Tile Cabinet Tops Installed All Work Guaranteed Free Estimate EUBANKS and STOREY Phones 3111 — 6092 they married or something?"
