Hcv faded eyes watered as she stared at Cassie. "Certainly a riivorce." "Why Cassie Fletcher! Your Pa and I have stuck together for— let's see—29 years come June. A divorce! You ought to be ashamed of. yourself. So that's what you were doin' with Mike.

Cassie said fiercely. She flew into the bathroom and turned on the sho\\ cr full blast. Mama was still there when sho came out. "That Leni!" Mama said. "She's the one that causes all the trouble for everybody. I could see this was cainin' and it's a wonder you didn't too! I.eni's crazy about Parker and die's always playin' up to him.

Everything's all settled," Cassie said sharply. t * t ELL, do you mean Parker's just going to give the turm lo Papa and me?" They'd never owned anything. Even in t| )c house on Carson street they'd always been a month or two behind in the rent until Cassie had slarlcd earning money and running things. "Yes, it'll be all yours." Cassie opened the door and started out. "Did Lcni and Parker go ridiiii- as they planned?" "Nope. Parker said he'd changed his mind about stayin 1 . He drove off to Indianapolis.

Leni looked up lazily from the funny paper she was rending as she :-ipp«f her coffee. Cassie sat down and poured herself some fruit juice. Her hand shook a little. She'd felt so pood right after the shower, but iiow suddenly the room swung around in crazy circles. "Oh good heavens!
