The thadei were drawn and we could iear water running in Uie bath l^.oom. Ida was singing. Davicl raised the shade and the cold winter light filled the apartment. A man was asleep on the couch, his mammoth belly rising and falling. He was dressed In shoes, sorts, nimpled trousers and « dirty undershirt. Davicl waved his hand at the coiirh. "That's Bobo."' he said "Too much New Year's Eve." A mangy looking kitten was asleep on a newspaper In Ihe middle of the littered floor, its head resting against a dirly dish. As David crossed over to the bureau, he did not see the kitten. «nd accidentally kicked it. An agonized miaouw rent the air, and It ran under the bed. David got on his knees and tried to coax il out. "Well, if U isn't the Boy Scoulsl" said Id.i She had come out of the bathroom, and stood facing us grinning. She wore a padded cotton housecoat, with bis red roses printed all over it. and a pair of ostrich-feather mules. "Happy New Vear," said David, standing up. "1 came to pick up the rest of my things. Heclor's got his car outside to help me." "That so?" she said. "Whereabouts you moving?" "Got me a little room across town I won't take anything but • the rest of my things. You can I »'-KIVC all the rest." I '• He began cutting things In a cardboard box. Teetering back and forth on her high-heeled mules, she watched David as he worked. "Y'know. honey," she said presently, "I'm gonna charge deserlion in 'the divorce SUII. : ' "Do whatever you like," shrugged David, not looking at her. "When are you gonna get the divorce?" &*** mz t, "WeU, tt may take two-three monihi. We're gonna drive lo Nevada, and both get jobs. Boon's the divorce Is final, we'll get married. We may even decide to stay there tt we like it. Nevada'll he good (or me. The rheumatii came back something awful in my [e(t arm. That's why the place is such a mess—I couldn't clean it UB the way I telt." I thought I caught » flash of pleading, of something akin to tenderness, in her voice. "That's too bad, Ida. . . . Well I guess I've got everything now All except one thing—I can't find my watch anywhere." "WhRt'd you expect — you run off and leave me without any money. Here, I'll give you the pawn ticket." She picked up a chipped patent leather purse from the jumble of objects on the bureau, rummaged in it. and came up wilh a preen slip of paper. "Here, fella. Don't say 1 never gave you nothing And, by the way, you owe a month's rent here—we have to give 30 days notice when we move you know." "Okay." said David dully. "J'rn going now [/ you ever want to send me a Ictler. use my folks' address. When Bobo wakes up give him my regards. I hope you and him will be happy together." He was standing al the door, the box in his arms, as he said this' "Thanks," fda said, and unexpectedly burst Into a storm at tears. We went rtrwn ths stairs • • • JN February Betty had a" birthday, so Knrl threw a party lor her. He baked the cake himself (a process that involved every dish and pan in the kilchcn) and in- vilcd a do*en or so people. DaviJ volunteered to contribute pictures of the occasion. The living room was clogged wilh conversation* and smoke, and 1 wa» bending over' the record player talking to Jill Ormond- the girl from my art class—when I observed a girl who worked in the library with Betty detach herself from • group and wiggle ovei to David. I'd met her once o. twice before, and didn't care tot her particularly. Bleached hair bedroom eyes, an uplift that lifted impossibly high. Ida's type. David had put away his camera and was balanced on the wide windowsill drinking black c ofTc« when this mouse suddenly confronts him. "Are you a doctor, loo?" 1 heard her ask David, "No. I'm just trying like crazj to be a good photographer." said David, with his disarming smile "Oh." She stared at him with her little blank face for » moment. "I had a friend once who worked his way through college laking pictures." "I'm not that far along yet" said David simply. "Right now I'm going to night classes (o get me a high school diploma. Just give me time, is all. 'Scuse me, will you." She watched his retreating back with something akin to dismay. She wasn't used to the brushoft. * • • J GOT to thinking about David again last night. Because I was awake most of the night, silting in the kitchen boiling water on all four burners, holding Pamela in my lap. She's had a croupy cold for three dnys now, and ste.imlnR'j the only way to relieve her breathing. She cuddled against my shoulder and patted me from time to time. She's six months old now, and big for her age. I sat up with Ihe baby because Jill's been up with her Iwo nights In a row So last night when Pamela woke crying I told Jill I'd lake over. "You're the beslest husband." murmured Jill, my former art student, and went back to sleep Instantly. ! bent and kissed her check. She was wearing a pair of my pajamas, and she smolled of good soap. Along toward morning, the bsbr seemed better, and went to sleep. I hope she's all right by Saturday, because David's coming over U take some pictures of her.
