They swam around cia- zily. iust as she herseU was swimming now through oal* green mist. Tod hadn't reallj wanted Ihia babj: He hadn't even wanted to talk about It. And he couldnt be bothered with sitting around with her every evening until it came. Ma was lonely. Ma's face was there ail at once. ,verj real, dancing before hec'; wearing an expression oj mockery "You schemed and finagled to get him to marry you. when you knew all the time he was still in love with Liz! H "No!" she cried out. "1 didn't scheme and finagle. I only loved him." , Rick's voice interrupted gently. "Jenny!" Jenny opened her eyes. and through the mist his face enlerged.' The room carne T ln10 to««. pale green walls, Venetian blinds, and on the metal bureau a 'huge bouquet. "Have I been talking crazy. Rick?" she asked weakly. She twisted her fingers around his Warm hand. Rick flushed and looked embarrassed. "You're supposed to rest, Jenny," he said gravely. A nurse bustled in. "So she's finally come out of it. Well, dearie, has your nusband told you about those two bounfung boys?" "I'm nol the father." Bick's face reddened again. "Oh. yes." The nurse bustled around. "They told me that, but I forgot." Tod will bo here any minute," Rick explained •'! phoned the office at the trailer camp, and they'll catch him when he comes in." Jenny found her voice. "Two boys?" "Twins, darling." ~ "Oh, no." She couldn't quite comprehend it. • • • . 'pOD came at last. He leaned over her. and she looked up at him, her eyes blurred and sleepy Then she smiled faintly and 'said. 'It was a dirty trick of me—twins —can you imagine?" ^ "It's wonderful, Jenny. Wonderful to think it's all over." Sle nated himself for having gone away and lefl her He tried in every way possible to make up for it. Magazines, books, candy. Bowers—he fairly outdid himself He spoke with hearty enthusiasm of hi' two future football players out In the nursery, and assured Jenny over and over again thai they were the cutest two infants among- the • lot Jenny pondered a long time over the names. She made out a long list and Tod approved of two of them: Dale and Philip. They went in Rick's car one fine sunny March day. back to Homecroft camp. Jenny's neighbors had gone together to buy the needed extra bassinet and layette for the unexpected twin. It was a joyful homecoming. And for a time things ran very smoothly. Ruth Hansen helped for a while with the morning baths. After all, two babies for a brand-new mother and no help in the crowded quarters, was quite an order. In May the twins decided to be colicky at precisely Ihe time Tod began working on his term papers. The trailer became a madhouse, a crowded, hectic 12 by 20 space full ol squalls, and the smell o< wci diaoer; ana spilled milk, and the sound of sharp adult voices Those nights. Jenny walked back and forth the length of the trailer with one ol the babies to keep him from waking his brother and Tod. Tod was worried about a job aftci his graduation. .Business administration had seemed a good thing 10 take when he started to college He really hadn't been too interested in anything but football in the beginning. Now he learned thai lobs available to graduates were neither too well paid nor plentiful, especially from a small college like Markwood. 'All I'm Interested in," Jenny said wearily as they discussed il, "is getting out ol this trailer and into an apartment or a house." • * • ' r pUEN Rick came to their rescue with whai seemed to Jenny i delightful solution. He had stopped by the trailer for a few moments one Friday afternoon. He was on hij way home for the week-end. She had been telling Rick about her hopeless hunt for a place to live. "Gosh, you'll have to come down to Centerville! You can stay two weeks or even a month. We've got a big house, four bedrooms and molher'd be tickled pink to get her hands on the twins. And she'd be nuts about you. Jenny!" T"?, '°° kcd " p from his studies, e 11 find a place. Jenny's just discouraged." "Yes, but there's no reason why you shouldn't all come down for a vacation. Of course it's a little town, awiully quiet, but— nice " 'But, Rick." Jenny prolcsted, are you sure your mother wouldn't be appalled at having such a houseful descend on her?" '-Nonsense!" Rick cried. ''She'd love it!" His enthusiasm was contagious, and he left with the understanding that they would come to Center- vine for two weeks right after graduation.
