"You here in the cool cottage all day ca! a leisurely, lunch, nap when the twins do, go for a swim with Rick—" M U that's the sore point, I can tell Rick that you—" "That's not the sore point!" h snapped.

Every time they quarreled he went ofT like this and after a white he'd come back and everything would be patched up. However, when Tod returned on this evening an hour or so lalejr, he was stiU sullen. He came inlo the cottage and flung himself down En a chair and lit a cigaret before lie siM)ke to her. *I ran into Me downtown to- ny," he said. "She looked ter- ble, I'm worried about her. She ants me to stay with her during he week arid come down here cek-cnds.*' ' There was a stubborn set to his aw. "I told her I'd think about U And I've decided it might be good idea. Commuting is getting me down." . "But Tod, the twins and I will Saturday mornitig and gorrowcd Rick's car to drive up to Capitol City, resolved to rent the first place she found that she could live la. U turned out to be a basement apartment on a shabby; side of town. It smcllcd a trifle musty, but on the south there was a row of windows. ', . -"•—-• There was a fireplace, too, wonderful for cold winter evenings and dismal afternoons. Aside Irora those two advantages, however, there was little to he said for the apartment. The kitchenette, a converted closet, was dark and damp and smelled of mice and roaches. here alone, and surely you— rl "You know^you can always de- iend on Rick." Anger swept through her in a fierce" rush. "Tod, -you're being deliberately hateful." All right, I'm being hateful. Ma needs me. She's al! alone and she's not well. I'm concerned about icr. I see no reason why I shouldn't stay with her during the week instead of riding back and forth on that beastly bus. If you really needed me here evenings, it would be different. Besides, like Ma said, I'll have some time to look for a place for us. She said she'd help me find something." Jenny bit her" lip to keep U from trembling. _ "You—you will try to find a place." 'I said I would, didn't I?" TENNY wondered if Rick and his ^ mother believed her when she said Tod was going to stay in town to try to find a place. Jenny tried not to led resentment toward Tod's mother and she reasoned that the temporary separations would draw Tod and herself closer together. But before long, she began to have a panicky feeling that instead, a gulf was widening between them. One hot evening in August Tod phoned from Capitol City to say that he wouldn't be home for the weekend. Ma was sick. "Ma needs me." Jenny's eyes filled with quick tears as she hung up the phone. That wasn't the real reason he was staying away. He had never been contented in the cottage. He seemed to resent Kick. Jenny left the twins with Mrs- Morris that The tiny bedroom's window opened on an alley. And ttie rent was far too much, $65. A basement would be damp, Jenny mused, and probably noi too good for the twins, but she could lake them for long walks .in the sun to make up for it. She'd have to -keep them oil the Moor, but it wouldn't be long until they'd be out of the crawling stage anyway. * * * . rjNCE she'd.made up. her mind ^ to lake it, she felt elated. Tod was surprised when 5lie phoned him. "But Jenny, whatever made you take it into your head to drive up and look for a place yourself?" "When you' said you weren't coming home this week-end, I couldn't stand it," Jenny answered. '1 felt thai any place, no matter how shabby or inconvenient it was, COPR, IMt HV KEASCIWICE, INC. T.
