Pbo 3-6911 XXVI I rpHERE wasn't anything in this that I couldn't give him a comforting answer to without having to open my memory to that fantastic story Parsons had told me, that story of Luella Jamison. There was a more plausible explanation. "After all," 1 said, "you make her sound as if she had a sort of mother complex. And that's natural enough, in a way. Don't forget this i- your first marriage, but it's her second." He shook his head. "Don't forget, she wasn't married long. And to LeNormand. That first marriage doesn't count. Just a ceremony. That was all!" After I rallied from that sudden statement it did not appear so surprising after all, and I felt glad for him in an inexplicable way. And then I saw what he was getting at. It made it all the harder to explain something that he felt was missing between them. At this moment a sense of loneliness so acute that it was almost like fear came over me. Here in the middle of an enormous and lifeless desert 1 was talking to the man who had been, who still was, my best friend, and vet if I could in any way have escaped from him I would have (ione so at once. No reason for my sudden gust of feeling presented itself, but 1 knew that I ought not to be there, that already the whole horrible web of circumstance that had caught us both and changed us, and from which I thought I had escaped, was closing In on me again. I looked «t Jerry, and the tightness of his face began to make mt ftel afraid. 'So you see," he was saying, "it isn't the ordinary thing at all. We're not unhappily married. Don't get that idea." He looked straight at me. "I've got to try to tell you what's bothering me and then I want you to tell me something. Something that I'm sure you know." "Anything I can tell you I will." "Selena and I got married pretty quickly after LcNormand's death." I could not tell whether he regretted the fact or not. "You didn't approve of that. One of the things you and Dad both said, at various times, Was that we ought to know each other better." "Yes," I told him. "Why did you tell me that?" IT was a question I did not want to answer, so I parried it as smoothly as I could. "I guess both of us felt it was a little too rapid for, well, for being entirely sure of your happiness," He looked disappointed. "Well," he went on after a pause, "it wouldn't have made any difference." He slopped as if ho wanted me to agree with him, or disagree. I couldn't be sure which. "I .don't see what you're driving at." "I don't know any more about Selena than I did the day I married her." After a .vhile he went on. "I don't know if I can explain it to you. You know how, in stories, some little habit of. the wife's or the husband's grows and grows out of all proportion in the mind of the other until finally there Is an explosion? Well, that'i ttw way it is with me. I'm afraid of Ui« explosion. Bark, do you know that everything Selena ever says to me is based on nothing but the present or the future?" "Listen," I said to him. "She had a shock, don't forget. Naturally she doesn't want to think back of that." He sighed. "No, Bark. She's talked to me often enough about LeNormand, and quite a good bit more about Collegeville. Faculty wives and all sorts of things. But never anything before that." I was afraid to ask what was in my mind, but I knew that it was then or never. "Doesn't she ever talk about her family, even?" "ONCE," he said, and his voice was lighter than before. "Once she said something about her family. At least, I suppose it was her family." Then he was silent for quite a while. "It was when we were on our honeymoon in Bermuda. We had a little house to ourselves, you know. One night I woke up. "And I leaned over finally and kissed her, and she woke up. She looked at me a minute and I could sec she wondered why I had waked her. And then she smiled a little as if she knew how much I was loving her, and i moved over closer to me. Finally | she sighed a little, or I thought I she did, and said something in a I low voice. It was meant to be to j herself, I reckon, but 1 overheard it." He stopped again. "She said—" Jerry's voice was low and wondering-—"she said, 'This ii the thing my people do not know,'" It did not (H In with the things Parsons and I had discussed; it made no sense for Luella Jamison to have made that remark.
