CONCRETE SEWER TILE T^HE .cottage, originally built as a caretaker's house, had been usctl later by Rick's father for. his study. Jenny bought colorful paper drapes (or the windows and painted some second-band chairs and an old kitchen table bright yellow, for the kitchen. They moved their Cew belongings from the trailer, olus the old walnut marble-topped oureau and the gateleg table and antique chair Nina was storing lor them. The cottage was small, but snce it was furnished and the curtains up. they were delighted with it Then Tod got a job with a distributor (or farm implements. It didn't pay so much to start, but there was a promotion promised. They celebrated in appropriate fashion with a party. Tod, using Rick's car, brought Nina down on a Saturday evening to spend the week-end- The four of them went swimming, had a picnic, and then a? soon as the babies were put to Bed, the four played bridge until late. It was like old times. Tod bunked that night with Rick at the big house and Nina slept at the cottage with Jenny. Nina and Jenny lay awake until almost 2 talking. Jenny was so excited about Tod's new iob, and she was thrilled with the cottage too. "It's wonderful how nice Mrs. Morris has been, Nina. She's such a help with the twins'." "You surely aren't planning to stay here said. •'Only until apartment or means." It'll be a problem all right," Nina said, "but I think I'd—" "You'd what?" Jenny asked sharply. "I wouldn't want you to—take me wrong or anything like u^at," Nina said. 'But I think it would be best for all concerned U you moved back to Capitol City as soon as possible, even though it a help (or Mrs Morris to take care of the babies so much." "Why whal do you mean. Nina?" "You know Rick's in love with you," Nina said. She paused and then added. "You aren't mad are you, ban. for me saying it? "Mad? No, of course not," Jenny said. She was grateful for the darkness that hid the red creeping across her cheeks. "Oiilj you're wrong—being silly, Nina—or Jealous." One ot the babies whimpered in his sleep and she got out ot bed and padded around to his bassinet. Nina sighed. "I'll admit 1 wanted Rick to fall tor me, but 1 gave up long ago. You and Tod have been throwing him at me ever since last fall, but he doesn't see anyone but you, Jenny." Jenny broke in, "Rick is Tod's best friend and he's been so good to me, but it isn't anything like that, I know." "Just the same," Nina insisted, "I think the best thing you and Tod can do is move back to Capitol City." nail to iump to a crazy conclusion thai he was in love with her Kirk nad gone to work at the Ccntervillp Trust Company The iob had Deen waiting for nun as soon 35 rte graduated.

They would have liked to have a car, but they didn't have money enough (of a down payment. J ENNY Nina's lay awake long after regular breathing indicated she was asleep. She remem r bcred Tod's accusation: "Rick's In love with you." They had quarreled over it- And now Wina had brought it up. In some odd way both of them seemed to blame her. For something that didn't exist! Just because Rick was gentle and helpful and adored the babies, they AT first Tod was interested in his "• job and excited at meeting new people, but as the summer wore on. the Job became less interesting and more routine, and the commuting more tiresome ijn the heal and dust or midsummer' He would come home worn out. hungry and hot to find Jenny tresh as a daisy after a quick 5 o'clock swim in the park pool with Rick. Jenny sensed, after the first few times she talked about the swim with Kick, that it Irritated Tod. so she didn't mention it any more. He wasn't too fond of .swimming himsel! and that's why she had gone early. She tried instead to act interested in his day. asking about his work, and the people lie had met. But he nearly always came home in a disagreeable mood. She wondered why it was so difficult for Tod to adjust himscil. to accept the small didicullic; of life in a good-natured way. She told him that one evening. "Why can't you just accept things as they are and not grumble about Ihom all the time?" His eyes blazed suddenly.
