"Mind handing me that bucket?" Laurie shoved the bucket wilhin his reach. "Ugh!" She wrinkled ber nose again. Steve laughed. "I thought you i me along to help bait hooks." He puffed gently at his pipe. "If you had brought nice, clean minnows I wouldn't mind," Laurie said. "Fish haven't been taking minnows so good last three or four days," Steve said. The mist was beginning to lift now and the river flowing softly by the boa! w-as silvery in the new . ._ , heron flew bv fish jumped and morning light. and upstream led an ever-widening circular ripple. Laurie trailed her hand in the water, already warming. "Could we go swimming today?" Steve nodded. "Might. T don't think the fishing's going to be much good today. Half the baits are slill on this line. There isn't even much use running Ihe rest of the lines." He turned the boat and headed back downstream toward his dock Laurie felt his eyes studying her' She wondered what conclusions his [long silent appraisal had brought ihim. „*,,.,.. .*,,,.., ,n, i -Did you ever finish yom bo^i "'Laurie "biusued. "«' little Steve?" she asked suddenly. ''Nop«. Gave it up. Wrote enough so that 1 got what was eating me out of my system and then quit, A lot of guys wrote books about the war for that reason. I'm working on a thing about the Civil War now. I teach history, you know." H« bent his attention to sidling the boat in against (he dock and then threw the boat chain over a piling. It clanked loudly in the sliiiness, the sound echoing and re-echoing across the water. Then he Jumped out and reached tor Laurie. She felt again the warm strength of his calloused brown hand as she stepped from the rocking boat to tlie.dock. She stood there silently for a moment, watching as Steve got back into the boat and busied himself with the bail buckets, almost as though he had forgotten her presence. "What time do you usually go swimming, Steve?" she said presently. He tipped back his hat and straightened up. "We'd best wait until the sun's had a chance to warm (he water—say about 11." "Okay." She smiled at him and then turned and started ofT. "Tell l.ouis to come along," he called after her, "he's been itchin' for swimming wcnlhcr," • • • T AURIE felt like running the rcsl ^ of the way up Ihe path to her father's house. She fell hungry and filled with exhilaration. What a wonderful— purely wonderful summer it was going to be! Louis French had a book propped on the breakfast table, but when Laurie came In he folded rt up and laid It aside. "Well, my dear," he said. "I didn'l look for you back in lime for breakfast with me. You've been down helping Sieve run his lines, haven't you?" His brown eyr-s'-lcd at her. as she illd Into her chair »t the table and unfolded her napkin. Mrs. Jehner, her fatherj housekeeper, came and poured her coffee and put out fresh pecan rolls on a plate. "I hope you'll have as much tun this slimmer as you did the last lime you were here, Laurie. Steve and I often talked about It, how you took to the life of a river rat like you were born to it." "I did have a wonderful time. I don't imagine Steve appreciated me too much though. I lagged after him everywhere he went, and once or twice when he wanted lo work on his book and 1 tormented him to go swimming with me instead." "You fancied yourself | n love with him that summer, I believe." "I'm afraid so," Laurie said laughing. J-JER father sipped at his coffee in silence for a moment. "So you're engaged to be married. Laurie?" 'Yes. In October. It was supposed to be this month, but I changed my mind." "Why?" Laurie flushed again. "I wanted to spend the summer here with you." "That's very flattering," her father E»id. They smiled at each other "I hope it's worth the sacrifice, if it was z sacrifice. Didn't Fletcher object strenuously." "Ralher But it was mother who was really furious!" Louis French laughed. "Oh yes, Emmy would hale your wanting to come here." There was another small pause and then they began to talk about /nrious people whom Laurie remembered from her previous visit Her father said at last, "Well, did Sieve have any luck this morning with his lines?" "No, and he said to ask you to come swimming with us at U." "Good. I'M phone the store I won't be down this morning and 1 can get some work done on the roses too!" "Why Dad, you sound like i liltle uoy about to play hooky!" "Well?" he raised his brows and shrugged In frank admission.
