NEA SEHV1CE, INC. XXXVI JENNY was waiting at the front J gate of the Steuberwnld store at four o'clock and she saw Tod the moment he came out of the building. He walked with his big shoulders hunched,c an absentminded expression on his face. She punched the horn of the car and he looked up. "I wanted to talk to you, Tod." A wary expression crept over hit face, like a mask pulled down. "Who told you I was working here!" "Rick." A sudden thought swmed to strike him. "Nothing's wrong with the kids?" "No. Nothing like that." He stood awkward and uncertain, people streaming past him. some of them looking curious. "Won't you get in. Tod?" He went around and opened the car door and got in beside her. Tod was silent as she turned the car up the hill away from town and toward the river. But after » while he spoke, gruffly. "Exactly what do you want to talk to me about?" An uneasy qualm struck Jenny. "Well, now that you're here," she parried, "it's not going to be as easy as I thought- I—1 heard you'd leit the Conover Agency." "1 left there the first of the year," he said bluntly. "Ricls told me you and Liz—" "Ye«h, we're all washed up. That happened months ago. too." Jenny ran her Index finger back and forth on the steering wheel. Tod's brusque manner chilled her. "Rick said you • were baving a tough time financially, and then this trouble, your mother dying and all—" "Just because I asked your help with Ma, because 1 was in a jam, is no sign 1 need your pity. You don't have to go out of your way \o do anything tor mel" *Tm not offering you anything." "Look, }uat -why did you come by tonight and pick me up? What did you want to talk lo me about?" Jenny threw him a tremulous half-frightened look and her eyes swam with quick tears. "1 may as well come to the point. Tod. 1 want you to—to come home." "You WHAT?" "I love you. Tod. I've never stopped loving you, I need you so!" • • • "YOU need me?" The words had an incredulous ring. His handsome tace twisted. "But you're going to marry Rick: Nina told me so. Rick said so himself. And 1 was glad when 1 heard about iL He's just the sort of a person you ought to be married to. steady, and reliable and good. I've known Rick for a long time. baby, and I know one thing—he'll never let you down." Jenny tried to speak, but he went on rouehly. "You and I didn't make a go ot it once, and we wouldn't again, because we're—we're not cul oin for each other. And besides." he added lamely. "Rick wili take care of you." tie stopped and looked away from her, nibbing his Bst in the palm oi his hand. "Tod,"..she whispered, "look at me. 1 love you. Even if you aren't in love with me. I'd like you to come back and try again [ want you back—on any terms—your terms." He couldn't resist any longer. He found hjmseli with his cheek against hers, all al once, feeling'the wet warmth of her tears. He heard his own voice, babbling almost without volition. "Jenny darling, my darling, 1 am in love with you' more than I'll ever lie able lo let you know." "Tod." He drew back. "How could you come to me .like this, when I've been such a tool! It took me so long to grow up! To Know that I'd been chasing a rainbow thai didn't even exist, following an obsession that was iusl that and nothing else. You can't , imagine i what i| was like lo discove; that • when Liz was planning our wedding, al] I could think of was thai honeymoon ol ours "in that miserable UUJe lourisl cabin. I knew then lhal I loved you. How could you ever take me back after all that's happened?" "Hush." She lifted her lips and the world spun for an instant as he kissed her. "And 1 ruined everything— " "Everything isn't ruined." Jenny said "And we're not alone in making mistakes, you and 1. Everybody makes 'cm." "Do you honestly think we could start all over again. Jenny?" QHE nodded, and he took her hands in his and went-on earnestly. "Ma said to me once no! long ago that having somebody you love, love you In return is the most important thing there Is. And 1 believe it Ma tell sorry tor me—" "Bui we have each other again, Tod." "You wouldn't be able to forget some of the things that have happened," he said doubtfully. "No. I won't target Nor will you. But who cares about, that. We need to remember our" mistakes, to profit by them." "If J could lust be sure that 1 wouldn't fail you ever again, that we could have things right for the children—" "We have each other," Jenny answered, her arms going around his neck once more. "That counts for more than anything. Pop said to me once lhal you have to tight for what you want in this lilc. and after you gel it you have to fight twice as hard to keep it. I'll never. let you go again. Tod." -- . "I won't go again, darling," Tod said. "The last thing Ma said to me before she died was 'Make it up with Jenny.' She'd be pleased now if she could just know. Jenny started the car. Her heart was singing as her thoughts leaped ahead lo that moment when she and Tod should step across the threshold of the house on Riverdale Road once more. The twins, dressed in their best bibs and tuckers, were waiting there. What a homecoming this was going to be! f . THE ENT) COPfL IM> IV «CA M»«C[. l«i T. M. , [a _ u. ». rAr. OfF.
