He insisted on paying for the groceries, because of so ' many extravagant items he'd selected himself, mushrooms, some terribly expensive cheese and a bottle of wine. When Tod returned from his last class Rick, with one of Jenny's riiftled aprons tied around his middle, was in the kitchenette cooking dinner.^ Tod was in an extra good humor He and Rick sampled the wine and had a high time kidding each other They had just finished the dcs sert and lit cigarets when'.Rick said to Tod, out of n clear sky "Say, you know Liz Conover— "Yes." . "I heard she's getting a divorc already from that Courtney fellow slie married last spring." No one said anything for a sec bndlor two. Rick looked from on teethe other of them. "Did I something wrong?" "No," Tod said. He rose an began hunting for an ash tray. "The ash tray is right behin you, on the desk," Rick said qu etly. . "And now tell me what wrong with my mentioning Liz "Well, if you must know Ricky •Jenny said, turning the water o in the sink for the dishes, '" ' was engaged to Liz last spring, an she jilted him, and then I caug him sort of. on the rebound." Sh ducked down then to get the soa afcos out o[ the cupboard, be- use she couldn't face the angry ok on Tod's face. "That's not true, Jenny, and you now it," Rtck looked uncomfortable. idn't mean to bring any skeletons ut of the closet." ^ "It's all right, Rick," Jenny said, he was sure of herself now. Skeleton or not, it's better to have lings out in the open, isn't it? Vnyway, 1 love Tod, and even if did get him on the rebound, I'm lad I did. We're going to make a uccess of our marriage." "Jenny's rtght," Tod said. His yes met Rick's briefly as he set ash tray down on the table. Want to drive down to the drug lore with me," he said. "I'm out cigarcts." "I've really got to be going/ 1 lick said. TENNY protested, but only halt- J hearledly. and atter the usual hings were said, Rick lett. Tod mnkcs me fly off the handle so." 'Sure." Tod gol out his books and notebooks and sat down at his desk to study. He couldn't get Li7. out of his mind. Aware suddenly that Jenny had been saying something to him, he looked up. "What was that, Jenny?" "You mean you didn't^ hear a word I said?" " He shook his head- Her brown eyes were stormy again. "I said your mother phoned and wanted to talk-to yoif today. They told me at the office. 'She wouldn't lalk lo me, but she left her number." "Sure, Dad, I realize how Important money, is—I need twice as much of it as I used to!"

"We were supposed to be married as soon as I got home from that hospital in New York," Tod said. "She and Courtney doped the day before I got back." "You were lucky," Rick said. "Lucky?" Tod said. "To' marry Jenny you mean." . "And to have escaped marrying Liz. She's no good. She'll be married to half a dozen fellows before she's through. You'd better get her off .your mind and be happy with Jenny. She's a swell kid." Jenny was all finished with the dishes when he got home. "There's nothing to apologize for, Jenny." He looked down; al her, seeing the trembly sweetness of her lips, the softness ol her eyes, dark-circled in her thin face. He ought to be ashamed for even thinking of Liz when Jenny was so sweet. "1 guess "Maybe I'd belter go call her." * • • AT the trailer camp office he found the slip with the plxone number on it in his mail slot. Ma : s querulous voice came loudly . and reproachfully over the phone. "We figured you was pretty busy, but like I told Harriet today, looked like you didn'.t care what become of us. We ain't seen hide nor hair ol you for weeks and weeks." . , "I've been IriinknV 1 must look you up." "1 know Jenny's probably doin' everything she can to keep you away from us, but it looks like—" "Look Ma, if you phoned me lo pick a quarrel lot's break it oil right now. I've been meaning to come around and see you. We sold the shack thai belonged to Jenny's father and got S50Q for it. "1 could let you have some money if you're hard up. Jenny wouldn't care if you really needed it." "No, thanks. Joe T s got a good job with a friend of his. He says soon as he can he's goin' to get us a nice place again.- Joe'll take care of his old mother even it you don't think enough of her to come around." "I been busy with school, and Jenny's had lo quit work. We'll be over to see you though soon, maybe tomorrow night." "You don't need to bring'her to see me!" Ma said firmly. He walked back to the trailer slowly, feeling a miserable sense it's just nerves that of guilt.
