When the train bad pulled out into the cavernous gloom of the Grand Central cave and left us standing on the platform, I felt an obscure feeling of sadness and foreboding. Jerry and I had been growing apart, of course, as our lives diverged, but this time, as we separated, it felt like the end of something. We wrote, of course, from time to time. Jerry's letters were postmarked "Los Palos," and at first they came about once a week. Gradually they grew more infrequent, and so did mine. I gathered that he and Selena were enjoying their lonely life out there, but in the last one or two of his scrawls there was an unfamiliar note that I could not quite analyze: "My study window looks right out over 50 miles of desert—it would be so easy to get lost out there and nobody would ever find you. Selena walks a lot and sometimes I get worried for fear she won't get back before dark, but I guess she can take care of herself. You'd get a kick out of this place, Bark; why don't you come out here sometime later?" I wrote him and said that I'd like to come sometime, but that 1 was busy and doubted if I'd find time even for a week's vacation. A month later my doorbell rang at 9 o'clock in the evening. It was a telegram; CAN YOU COMB AT ONCE M KhTINfJ MMITKD TUESDAY MORNING LOS PAUJ8 HOPE TO SHE YOU JBRRY I cursed, got leave of absence, from my office, and caught the Century the next day. MY first thought WM ttwt Jerry looked marvelously well. I knew at once that he was more than ordinarily glad to see me, and that, too, surprised me. But he gave me no time to think or to be surprised. "Hi, Bark!" "Hello, Jerry." "Sorry to be late. .Got a flat halfway here and lost a lot of time." "That's okay," I told him. Some time after eight o'clock in the morning our road turned gradually left and southward, and after a while we were running parallel to the mountains west of us. The motion up and down the barrancas began to be almost as regular as a long ground swell. After several miles we came to a deeper draw with a steep face to one s.ide, and along its base a patch of shade. Jerry pulled the car into it and turned to me. In the sudden silence I could- hear the bubble, bubble of the water boiling in the radiator. "We'll stop here a little and cool, off," he said, and got out of the car. We walked around some, and I told him it was lonely country. "Yes," he said. "It takes time to get used to it. Then you love it." ' "I suppose so." Suddenly he looked at me and grinned. "I forgot. We have breakfast." He rummaged In the back of the car and brought out a thermos of coffee and several bacon sandwiches. The coffee was hot and exceptionally good. "Selena seems to make better coffee than most brides," I said to him. He pushed at a pebble with his foot. "I made this," he said. "Selena doesn't cook." "None of the old biscuit jokes need apply?" "No. She doesn't really care much for food, o** WAT or U» other." His voice implied he hadn't said everything that was in his mind. He was silent a long time. "I'm fc glad you're doing so well at the job." "I wouldn't say that. But it's an improvement over my performance a while back. Jerry, I owe you an apology for a lot of things. 1 acted like a fool." He didn't look at me. "You had reasons. In a lot of ways they were good ones." "I didn't even have an excuse, really." He got on his feet and began walking up and down in front of me, looking at the ground. "Listen, Bark. Before we get there, I want to talk to you a little while. So you'll know what you're getting Into and why 1 wired you." "All right." "First of all, don't get the idea there's anything wrong between me and Selena. I—well, I'm more in love with her now that I was when we got married." "Sure," I said, "You're a couple of swf'i people." "THANKS. And I'm going to sound like an ass when I tell you what's on my mind. In one way, I'm happier than I've ever been before, and in another— well, everything's just enough wrong so I'm worried." He wet his lips and went on. "You aren't married, so I don't know quite how I can explain it to you. It's just that everything goes so far, between us, and then It stops." I started to say something and stopped, embarrassed. "And you don't only want to give everything to the person you love, but you v/snt to be given everything in return. It's a two-way proposition for each person." He stopped and faced me, "I feel as though she was holding something back. Sometimes it's almost as though she foil I wasn't old enough ty know something. And I can't find out what it is she knows that I don't. There's something in between us. And yet, she loves me, Bark." Growth of a tree is not continuous, because of seasonal changes, but occurs only at certain times of the year, as during the summer, or the moist season.
