She wanted tc find words to thank her new mother-in-law for giving up her room to her son and his wife. Mrs. Signe Dahlstrom seemed not to notice that Elaine was still there. The sound of the spoon grating around the edges of the pot scratched on Elaine's ears. Yet when it ceased, the silence was more irritating. But Elaine's heart pounded and there was a constriction in her throat so that her lips could not form the proper words of thanks. Still Elaine felt compelled to stand there in the doorway. Tom returned shortly, dressed in overalls. Kissing Elaine lightly on the forehead, he said, "Our room is at the head of the stairs. You can't miss it. I couldn't wait for you to come up. It's hard to keep a good hired man these days, so I've got to get down to the bam and help Bill Steen with the chores." The door closed behind him •nd she was left alone with her mother-in-law and silence again. Bustling around the kitchen, Mm. Dahlstrom apparently paid no attention to her new daughter. Yet Elaine was conscious from time to time of her covert glance. A sort of helpless inertia kept Elaine standing in the kitchen door, wondering what »he should say or do, wishing she could rid herself of this dreadful feeling of forboding. She watched Mrs. Dahlstrom drag on the handle of an im- •ttiue flour bin in the lower cup- By Godren OlsonJ; **• •» ••^iitfis-.ifl-.*" 1 board. Leaning over, she carefully sifted flour into a large, white cup. She tossed the scoop back into the bin. Suddenly, without warning, the bin crashed shut, catching her right thumb. "My goodness!" Elaine icried, springing forward. Surprisingly, Mrs. Dahlstrom permitted herself to be drawn., over to the sink, where Elaine flicked on the fancet and held the bleeding iliumb under the cold water. "It's not cut badly," Elaine said. Mrs. Dahlstrom frowned at her hand and the pink-tinged water swirling around the drain'. "Serves me right. I wasn't watching what I was doing." Flinging her suit jacket on the nearest chair. Elaine said, "Do you have some adhesive tape and bandage?" When she had finished, she was astonished and quite pleased" with the ease with which she had stopped the bleeding and neatly bound the injured finger. • . • • S IGHING with relief, Elaine repeated, "It's not serious, Mrs. DaM ..." The unspoken syllable caught in her throat. She bit her lip until it hurt. Then she cleared her throat and forced herself to continue, "I know it's painful, though. If you'll tell me what to do I'll finish getting supper." The older woman contemplated her right hand. Finally, with obvious unwillingness, she said, "If you'll take care of the meat, please, I think that's all that needs attention." Opening a cupboard drawer with her left hand, she took out an apron. Holding it out, she said, "I don't think you'll ever grow into this!" Taking the apron, Elaine smiled her thank.. She began to shape the tiny meatballs and drop them into the sputtering skillet AM ,sh« worked, the thought came to Elaine that this was the first tin>f fbt had ever helped prepare a meal for Tom. Het husband. Her husband. What a beautiful sound the words had. Slowly, a pleasant, almost tranquil feeling came to her. , A man as wonderful as Tom would have to have a pretty fine mother, Elaine told herself. And it was understandable why Mrs Dahlstrom acted a little strained. The feeling perhaps was the same with h*r as with Elaine. Almost any mother would act the same under the circumstances. It was up to Elaine, really. She was the intruder. First, she must win Mrs. Dahlstrom's respect * * * w/HKN she finished setting the " table, Mrs. Dahlstrom sat down on the high stool by her work-table. Elaine could feel her blue eyes studying her intently as she carefully rolled each meatball over. At last, Mrs. Dahlstrom broke the silence, ;«I haven't seen you since you went away to college." Then she added accusingly, "You're Clem Allen's daughter." Elaine's heart twisted up in her throat For a moment her voice was locked inside her. Finally, she said, "Yes, Clem Allen was my father." She dared not take her eyes from the frying pan before her, but there was no point in pretending she didn't know something of Mrs. Dahlstrom's . past. "You knew him quite well, didn't you?" In a subdued voice, Mrs. Dahlstrom admitted the truth. "Yes, I knew your father. A handsome Irishman." Sh« paused. Then her voice became louder. Elaine sensed a defensiveness. "That was before I became serious about Mr. Dahlstrom." When Elaine made no response, she added, "I never knew your mother very well, however." There was a peculiar ring in her voice, a quality almost of regret and sympathy for Elaine. Elaine turned and looked at her. Was sympathy re&lly shadowed in those large blue eyes? CoUld this woman really feel sympathy for someone who intruded her home?
