AI- rcady Lenny hna sensed thai Mrs. Dahlxtrnm Ix diNn|»i»«>ntcd lipoaiise Tom did not marry A»- trid >cljion. a surer knowledge crossed Elaine's mind, bringing back all her misery and fear in triplicate. Even when love is not the question, a woman scorned is apt to hate anyone who reminds her of the scortring. Tom Dahlstrom had scorned Astrid Nelson and Astyid would be here tonight. Clutching the sink behind her for support. Elaine watched Tom sweep up •the broken dish at her feet and . 'empty the dustpan full of frag- <ments into the wastebasket behind the stove. Did Tom think her careless .and inept? The placid expression on Tom's face told her nothing. She tried to smile at him when he put aside the broom •and turned his eyes on her. Her 'lips quivered with the effort. Her •eyes began to burn. Putting his arm around her tenderly, Tom held her close for •a moment. "Don't worry about •a broken dish, Lenny," he 'breathed into her soft curls. "Ma I couldn't help feeling bad. But ;she knows it was an accident. Why, I remember once when I •was a youngster I broke a whole stack of dishes. I was scared >stiff that Ma would whale the tar out of me. You know what :she did?" The soft flame kin- idled by pleasant memories shone iin his eyes. "She patted my hend .and said, 'Nobody ever breaks idiahes on purpose!'" "But It WM a plate your father Igave her!" "She has other things he gave (her." Tom shook her gently. i"You run upstairs, tnk* « b»th %nd get dressed, I'll finish cleah- liaf up." Ut sighed and com- plained, "I don't know why Ma had to invite company our first night home." Easing away from him, Elaine couldn't help stating what was altogether, too obvious. "Your mother didn't know, when she invited the company, that you'd be bringing me home." •"Guess you're right," he answered agreeably, and plunged his large hands into the dishpan. "I suppose you'll be pretty glad to see Astrid, won't you?" The question was out before Elaine could stop it. She studied Tom's profile with a suspicion she knew was unworthy, but she couldn't help that either. "It's always nice to see old friends," Tom replied, truthfully. "Now you'd better hurry along or you won't be ready for me to show you off when the Nelsons get here." stepped into the heavy •^ twilight shadows that filled the dining room. As she moved through the equally murky living room toward the open stairway, she had the feeling that she would long continue to grope her way through the life on this farm just as she was groping her way through the houst itsejf. Even before she found the light switch by the door, the room at the head of the stairi seemed to surround her with • sense of security. She sighed and sat down on the edge of the massive walnut bed. Her* Tom and she could b« alone, away from the cold, enigmatical eyes of Mrs. Dahlstrom and the curious ey»i of others who couldn't help but wonder what Tom saw in her whcn.Aatrid was available. Elaine wanted to stay here in this room until tomorrow morning. The wlsir transmuted itself to her muscles and sh« dallied *n th« bathroom until Tom bounded up the stairs and into the room. Knocking oft tb* dcwc; Itt de- , "Aren't you ready yet? I'm next, you know." "Okay. I'm ready." When she emerged in her terry cloth robe, with a towel wrapped around her hair, he surveyed her critically and shook his head. "You'll have to wear something else. How about the sweater with all the shiny beads? I'm sure the natives haven't seen anything like that." He bit her ear playfully, then disappeared into the bathroom, leaving her with a glow in her heart that matched that on her scrubbed face. As she touched her fun lips with vermillion, she smiled at herself in the mirror above the walnut dresser. How marvelous was love. A few words from Tom and everything was wonderful again. As long as she had him, nothing could trouble her for long. Her spirits as volatile as a soap bubble on a summer day, she took the beaded pink sweater and black faille skirt out of her suitcase and put them on. • * * ]V"OT even the sound of footsteps across the front porch dissipated the volatile feeling. Neither did the excitement in Tom's voice, when, not noticing that she was all ready, he swept past her, saying, "Here they are! And I don't hear Ma. I'd better run down. You come as soon as you can." Seconds later, Elaine glided down the wide stairs toward tht living, room, filled with neatly arranged furniture so highly polished it seemed almost phosphorescent in the artificial .light She had the feeling that she floated over the steps, her flared skirt billowing around her trim ankles like the gown of a queen. Tom's queen. "Hello, Astrid." The pleasurt in Tom's voice was genuine. "Hello, Tommy." Astrid's full- toned accents slashed through Elaine's confidence like a sabre thrust Elaine's throat went dry. She caught at the banister and stopped. Astrid's lovely lips formed a possessive smile before she gavt Tom a kiss on the check.
