V " > --n., •"- '\r.-\fj •••After Leah had served us a truly umptuous breakfast and as he was leaving for the courlhousc, Father said: "I'm taking you over to the Tollivers' for supper tonight. They are all crazy to meet you, and it's Leah's day off. It will save you cooking supper." * "I-^don't:mind cooking supper, 1 I pirotested hastily, "and I had counted' on 'having you lo myscl: r one evening." "Well, that's sweet, of you, bu unfortunately the Tollivers hav< been basting and baking for lw< days; so we'll have to wait." Father obviously wns embarrassed, and all my gloom returned As I stood on the front porch a looked at the close-cropped cmcr aid lawn with MolJiir's lupine and columbines »ucl paiuics am •locks and sweet-scented pink nodding and smiling a wclcom from the long borders at the sides I was telling myselE that I'd d eforc I'd go lo the Tollivers' for upper.

"Nothing," 1 snitTccl, "only I'm lot going over to those dreadful folUvcrs' for dinner my very first liglit at home in months." .•„ Leah put the orange juice on ny bedside table and sat down. "But you've got lo go, my daring. It's a surprise party, vasn'l supposed lo tell you. F.vcry 'ast one ol your friends will be here." - .- . » I was so surprised lhat I sal up on Ihc bed. - -~ - ••- • "Bnrt thought tfiat none of rnj friends—that no one had called 01 the Tollivers." •> .».-., "No'm, they haven't actually called, but they haven't said no to Ihc supper parly neither. It's bcwfay supper." "Do you mean to tell me tha i my friends — Maudie, Kay Charmc, Janet—Hint those pustnn; Tollivers have had the nerve Ic invite my very best friends? Pco pic the Tollivers don't even know Well, I won't be used as bait." "I wouldn't say the Tollivc girls don't know them to speal; U They mcel Ihcm at church ;ui here and Iherc.

Coming down the stairs, a'-ms entwined, were Iwo o£ 'lie prcltiesl girls I had ever seen n my life. They were dressed -llike in while organdy, the bodices seemingly about to fall off Hie shoulders, bill held up by liny oufled sleeves, Ihe skirts rult'lcd from waist to hem. They were obviously twins, but with as many differences as likenesses. The blonde, whom I knew to be Florabclle, was pink and while, wilh eyes of a heavenly gentian blue. Annabelle was honey-colored, wilh brown eyes and dark bron/.c hair. Florabelle wore her hair piled on her head, while Annabcllo coiled hers in a figure eight on her neck. Aunabelle was an inch or two the taller. IJotli had the same hcarl-shapcd faces; the same large, round, expressive; eyes; the same long dark lashes. One uloue would have been lovely.
