LOGAN drove herself home in her car, Peter Snrinov following in his. She pulled into the garage and walked to the front as he pulled up to her curb. The clear cris.) air had the bite of smelling sails. The sky was netted with stars. At her front door, she handed him her key, less out of social form than because her hands were trembling. But if slie had expected Peter to master the situation, she was mistaken. He dropped the key, had to light a match to find it in the dirt, tried both sides of it in the lock, tugged angrily at the knob. "Maybe you better," he said, enraged. "I don't seem to hive the combination." His confusion . had a perverse effect upon her. She opened the door with one haH turn of the key. She threw her wrap on the ^settee, snapped on the living room flights. "I'll get the fixings." she said. Her voice was high and shaky. "Make yourself comfortable. Light the fire if you like." lie cleared his throat. "I don't want anything more to eat and drink," he growled. She felt his hands on her waist. She turned slowly, sickened by the pounding of her heart. "I don't want a drink. I want you. Jennet, don't make me wait any more." "I'll meet you downstairs." she id. He heard her coming down the stairs. She was very p.ile. but she had pinned up her hair and she was wearing a sweater and skirt and the saddle shoos. In the car, she tell asleep on h said.

They took a table that looked out on the ocean whose lip had been kissed by '.he sim to a rosy burn. Trie waiter laughed with them as they ordered their drinks, made them a present of his stiff-necked, continental laughter that carried the inference that ho who bad been around knew the real thing when he saw it When he brought their cocktails, he called their attention to the little twists of lemon they had requested, he had not forgotten, who could forget Ihe requests of newlyweds? But as they sal over their drinks, touching hands and ankles, their voices low, vibrantly personal, the light in the sky all but died, the water lost its shine of warmth. The waiter came over, silently put a match to the candle on the table. Instantly, nature backed of!, withdrawing its largess, leaving mortals to fond for themselves through the night. The. suntanned faces at the tables around them flared in the sudden light 01 their own candles, look on the patina of old pine and their eager absorption had a' look of haste. Almost, Jennet thought, as if they wore carven puppets, briefly animated, hurrying to be human before their time ran out. Jennet smiled at Peter brightly. "Let's call your mother and father and the Pclleticrs. Let's phone them right now!' As she had b d, the congratu- *h™,:,i 1,1V .IMUUII i>n in* AS sni- naa nopea, the congratu shoulder before they turned ofl I latory excitement that thrumme along the telephone wires was an affidavit attesting the reality 0 [ the new marriage. ". . . and the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air, gave proof through the night" . . . Sh« could barely resist humming it aloud as she held to her ear the wild jubilation of. Peter's father's voice. But her mother-in-law's sobbing was even better, more reassuring. "Is the happiest moment of my life, Jennet — daughter! So long our Peter has beor loving you, so much he was talking to us about you — that you are lovely . . ." Yes, that was proof. Children imagined, mothers never. Children cried over nothing, but mothers never cried, even with joy, unless something real had happened. Tliere was another kind of reassurance in the gentle teasing of Stella and Walter— their words. their voices gave social blessing, the approval of lhe extra-familial world. with celebrity, Jennet cried, "It's such fun, Peter such fun to tell! Could we call Chicago from here? I can't wait. This cozy little phone booth, like a house around us." Tliere was no answer ui the long-distance caii to her parents in Chicago, but they reached Fred Chancy, the man who had been the speaker at the belter housinc (onirn. Ear to ear at the receiver, they sobered to trie urlcncv of Fred's voice. "I've got to see you right away, Peter, it's important. Shame to interrupt your first night home, but man, I've ' ecn trying to get hold of you since Wednesday, and I have to go on a field trip tomorrow. . . .
