INC. xxxiv JT'S odd how things happen lo people, everything piling up at once sometimes. At the end of March everything seemed to go wrong for Tod. The office promotion he'd been promised at the end of three months went to someone elso. and the only explanation itlicy gave was thai his work wasn't quite up to expectations. Then the woman who'd rented Ma the rooms said they'd have to move. Her married daughter had been evicted and she had lo move them into the place. Ma got u> worrying over what they'd do, and had a fight stroke. Tod was frantic He tried to get Harriet to look for rooms, since she didn't have anything particular to do, but she had other plans. "H a r r i e t," he remonstrated, "Ma's sick! I've tried to get her back into Uie nursing home, but they're full up. 1 can't find rooms. I've tried everyone in town, I haven't got the money to put her in a regular ^hospi la I even if they'd take her, but we've got to get a roof over her head no matter what becomes of us." "Well, it's quit* simple to do that," Harriet said. She was calmly packing her suitcase. "You're paying for that house out on Riverdale Road, aren't you?" "That's got nothing to do with this." . • • ; "Oh, hasn't it?" She shut the suitcase with a bung. "It's a root, ain't it? And that's what you're yelling for, Me, I'm going back to Chicago. I've had enough of this town, and you and Ma sittin around staring at each other like a couple of zombies." "Harriet!" He followed her to the door. "Look! Wait, won't you? I've got no one to turn to." She flung aim • broken took "And who's fault is that?" He was trantic. The landlady wouldn't reconsider. "1 know it seems a hateful thing to do. and if I didn't already have my son and daughter-in-law and their kids in with me, I'd take your Ma !n. but the way it is my daughter gettir,' turned right out in the street, t don't see what else I can do. Surely you got friends that'll take her?' 1 "1 suppose I can find someone." Tod murmured". He tried to think. Maj'be some of the people Ma had used to know on Catolpa Street, or tlie Welfare. His soul shrank from the latter, because Ma would hate it She would never forgive him if he appealed to Welfare to find a place for her. His mind whirled in dizzy circles and kept coming back again aim again to Harriet's suggestion. Jenny. She was the only person in the whole world he would dare, appeal to and be sure of not being turned away. She was the only one in the world whose generosity and warmth he was sure of. It was ironic. • ' • A LJ. the next morning, from the time he shaved until the moment when 'he reached Jenny's shop, he rehearsed what he would say. Nothing sounded right Inside the shop, he was asked to sit on one of the delicate gilt and mauve satin chairs. Half a dozen mirrors gave him back his own reflection, the wrinkled 'suit,' the untidy shirt, and the worried expression on his face. And then he-looked up and saw Jenny. He got to his feet, his hands clammy, his throat full of dust. -She seemed like someone hif didn't know; sleek and well- groomed like one of those fashion models. She was exquisite, and he found himself staring at her like a yokel, forgetting everything he had planned to say. "HeDo. Tod." She smiled at him coolly, as tl he were someone she had met casually once. She invited him back Into her office, so that they could speak with privacy. He explained to her about Ma, how he'd tried to get her Into A nursing home, or •corns, or a hospital. He tried to ii.ikc her uiidersl.ind thai lie wouldn't have come to her. If he hadn't been absolutely desperate. Jenny was nice about it, and efficient She phoned right away to have Mrs. Drew get a bedroom ready, and said she'd gp out to the house right after lunch so as to be there when they brought his mother. He apologized for all the trouble ;mcl said she'd only have to keep Ma for a few days, until he could make other arrangements. • • • He walked out of the shop In a cold sweat of nervousness, and walked a block before he took a cnb, • • • •• he got back to the apartment, he found an ambulance in front, its red light blinking off and on. and the usual curious crowd standing around: ' He knew before he ran up the long narrow flight of stairs, that it was Ma. They were just bringing h'er out on a slrelcher. One of the white-coated attendants brushed him oul of the way, saying something about an emergency case. He followed them down the stairway. Here was one way of getting Into a hospital without having money, he thought miserably, just be an emergency case. Someone explained that he was the old lady's son. and he was allowed to get into the ambulance with her. She lay quite still, her eyes shut, the stiff ?ray hair matted back from her forehead. He began to rub her cold lirnp hand, and the siren screamed as the. ambulance bumped through the rough, dismal street t There wouldn't be any need now of Ma's going to Jenny's. He had humiliated himsell all for nothing, he thought, as he waited ID the corridor while they got Ma Into bed. He had better phone her. • Nina answered the shop's phone. "Jenny? She had a luncheon engagement' with Rick, and f don't know whether she has left the shop yet or not." "Please tell her. Nina," he said, ."that 1 managed to get Ma into a hospital. 30 she won't Have to worry around with her after all."
