Tom and fl are having such wonderful fun. pit's almost like old times." She looked up at Tom and the possessive light in her brown *yes sent a shiver down Elaine's spine. Tom's embarrassment was apparent Elaine thought a hint of red stained his cheeks, but she couldn't be sure. Suddenly, she <was certain of only one thing . . [the precarious condition of her toine-day-old marriage. "Okay. Okay," Jerry responded. "You two go on back to (Norway." Beaching for Etaine'* icold hand, he pulled her out of jthe chair. "My little American jpal and I will make us tome icoffee." "There •« some cookies In the red cookie jar," Mrs. Dahlstrom •aid. Elaine let Jerry lead her out into the kitchen. He sprawled out in t chair bj .the tablt and rested bis cheek ion his hand. As she fussed about the unfamiliar kitchen, Elaine could feel his small, bright eyes follow h«r «very move. Ht was jmakiftt h«r i«lf-coojck*i§. Final- SyT IM forked hit brotd hand 'through hi* close-cropped red ,hair and ss:J. "W'.-v .-uldut I Although he said it jokingly, the admiration in his voice was like a tonic. Elaine laughed and the sound of her own laughter was the most pleasant sound she had heard since she stepp'ed over the threshold of the Dahlstrom house. "Thank you," she s*id, "I should be thanking you, Elaine. Thanking you for taking Tom Dahlstrom out of circulation. Prom what I've heard about Tom, Astrid's not good enough for him anyway. She's — well, call it thoughtless . like me. We deserve each other, you know. And now that Tom's out of the way, there's some chance that Astrid might agree." "I think Astrid still wants Tom, Jerry. And she still thinks she'll have him." The words were out before Elaine could stop them. They hung there before her, gathering more frightfulness with each second that ticked around the gay clock on the wait • • • CITTING up straight and plant^ ing his hands on his knees, Jerry leaned forward and shook his head. "Astrid isnt the one you've got to watch, my friend. It's Mrs. Dahlstrom. I hear she rules the roost around here. Makes all the important decisions.* "Maybe she did when Tom was a youngster," Elaine answered defiantly. "He didn't ask her if he could siffi up for a hitch m the Army. And he didn't ask her if he could marry me." Jerry shrugged and relaxed against the back of his chair. "But I notice he married you first. Then introduced you to bis mother." "Oh, Jerry," Elaine protested, knowing that he knew she was whistling in the dark, "we're all friend* in this house. Let's talk about the weather, shall we?* "A ip-eat subject, the weather," ' A *K carried the coffeepot into the living room. Mrs. Dahlstrom was talking to Astrid, who had turned from the keyboard to face her and, with a certain insolence in the movement, was swinging her slender limbs back and forth. "Why, Aunt Signe," she said, "I thought you abhorred divorce." The word "divorce" reached out out and stopped Elaine in her tracks. Jerry almost bumped into her with the tray of cups, plates, and silver., Elaine stared across the room at Mrs. Dahlstrom's outraged face. "You don't think, do you, Astrid," she demanded, "that a few words from a justice of the peace ... or even a minister... make a marriage. Surely, ifs better to try to live down a mistake than to ruin the rest of one's life trying to live with a mistake!" • • » /CONFUSION crossed Mrs. ^ Dahlstrom's face when she saw Elaine. Then her lips set in a stern, hard line and she said, "Oh, is the coffee done already?" Elaine's hand trembled when she poured the fragrant, brown liquid into Astrid's cup. Astrid smiled up at her surreptitiously. Immediately, Elaine knew what had happened. Astrid had deliberately involved Mrs. Dahlstrom in an argument about divorce to find out how far she would go to rid this house of an unwelcome daughter-in-law, if ttiwelcome she was, Maybe Jerry was right about Mrs. Dahlstrom being a matriarch. What would that ultimately mean? Not even the possessive tenderness in Tom's eyes could push aside the question. Even when Tom at last closed the door of their room and they were alone again, the question was not shut out With a bride's shynea*, Klaiiw stepped into the closet to undress. When she came out, an odd fear enwrapped her, a fear that she might one day see aomethiof other than lore fe Tom's eye*. She reached f9r the light on the dresser and switched it off.
