"I'm jiisl— plain Cassic Fletcher again now," she told him, trying to smile. A sick feeling of desolation crept through her.

Parker Hamilton," magic had been wroiiglil. Yet never rightfully ? Never coma masquerade, a short time, and then . ijMike had wanted her to fly back east, but she insisted on taking a Iram. The longer trip would give IVer a litlle extra time to get used to her new stains. Mike kissed hei goodby at the station, and loaded her- down with candy and flowers and books. She had a compartment, which was very convenient and 'private, but ; rather lonely. You sal alone and tried to read, but the pages of the magazine kept blurring. "See here'" she lold herself. "This has got to stop somewhere. This feeling sorry lor yourself. 7his maudlin self-pity." The train trip was interminable The miles seemed to creep by. Mike had taken a plane, going back to New York to finish up his business there. She missed him terribly. Christmas the day she got into Indianapolis, ant! boarded a bus for 'Mortonvillc. She'd .wired Mama she was coining. Papa met her at the bus station. He'd bought u decrepit model T truck and he put her in the front and her baggage in the truck bed. "Gosh, it's good to see you home again, Casste." n CIIE bad always loved coming '-' home to the farm. The old house sprawled out on the little rise of ground had always seemed so inviting. But it wasn't home any more, was it? "I'll ssvan I don't know what your Mama and me and Sid nre Sfoin' to do with that big house," Papa said. "Mama wants to put up a sign out front that says "tourist rooms," but I 'bout got her talked out ot it. Seems like it would be too much work for her." Papa rambled on and on, but Cassie was only half listening. They were going up the graveled drive now, and Mama was in the doorway ot the back porch and Sid was running toward them, the do" at his heels. "Sid! Oh Sid, darling, I'm so glad to see you)" She caught him in her arms and hugged him light. "Cassie, we missed you so!" Mama said. She waddled ahead into the warm kitchen. There was a good smell of pies baking. "I was lonesome for all of you, too," Cassie said. For once, she noticed, the kitchen was immaculate "Everything looks so nice Mama You been feeling better?" "I made new curtains for the kitchen," Mama said. She Hushed slightly. "Makes a difference when you know a placo is really your own. 'Specially a nice house like this. When something really belongs to you, you feel a whole lot different about it." "Why that's right," Cassie thought. •Didja know Papa's goiiv rriDIv «u —11 , .

Papa had dumped her uggago in the middle of the kitchen floor, and Mama was beginning to set out the dishes for supper. "Parker loaned me the money to build a big new chicken bouse " He scratched his head and grinned at Cassie. "Oh Papa, how could you 'et him loan you the money! After all, he's not a member o£ the family any more now." "It's a strictly business proposition!" Papa said. "And don't you forget it." "And Papa's got a thousand baby chicks ordered already from the hatchery!" Sid added. "And I'm takin,' agriculture at school, all about raisin' chickens and pigs and planting gardens." "Sid, are you sure that's what you want to do?" Cassic said.' "Wo got a farm all our own now ain't we?" Papa asked. "Why shouldn't Sid study farmin 1 ? The whole place'll belong to him some day. And anyway, he likes it. The trouble with you, Cassie, is that you always know what everybody else ought lo cio!" "Never mind, Papa," she said. 'I m just tired from the trip. Don't pay any attention to me." Later, upstairs in the old room with the Iwin beds, she thought "Papa's right. I always know what everybody else ought to do, and make as fine a mess of my own life as anyone possibly could." She went to the windows and looked out. The snoivy fields stretched away, blue in the fast falling dusk. Papa had changed in the six weeks she'd been away. There was an eagerness in him that hadn't been there before. Well, everyone changed one way or another. Change was the only thing that was permanent. Even she would change. Alter a while there wouldn't he this heavy ache in her throat airy more.
