Mi»take in vm moon, high up in the clouded sky, flung long shadows through the big window. In the distance, the forests upon the kills edging the farm were dark «md gloomy in the weird night light On the other side of that forest, lAstrid Nelson was preparing for !bed too. Rash words burned to ithe tip of Elaine's tongue and she epoke to Tom accusingly, "If you [had married Astrid instead of one, you'd have another 360 acres to add to this farm someday." Tom didn't seem to notice the tone of Elaine's voice. He yawned saudibly. "This is Wisconsin, not 'South Dakota," he objected mildly. "I prefer to farm by the acre, not by sections." Then Tom's hands were on Elaine's shoulders and he spun 'her around. All her doubt and fears melted under the fire of his kiss. Slowly his arms slackened as she drew away, weak and breathless. The blades of the windmill on the hill outside the window of the Dahlstrom house gleamed coldly in the dull moonlight. Involuntarily, Elaine - shivered. Mrs. Dahfrtrom's heart was cold and unresponsive and as hard to reach as the top of the windmill itself. The doubt and fear began to creep back into Elaine'* heart For a long time «h« lay In tht unfamiliar bed, lirteninf to Tom a deep, regular breathing, and trying to push aside the hurt and irritation she felt. He had nonchalantly dropped asleep their .first night home! She tried to think oC otlMr Suddenly, a bubble of delight burst inside her. Soon he'd be waked up more unceremoniously than when he was in the Army. Bill, the hired man, had driven away right after supper. Surely, by now, the whole countryside knew that Tom Dahlstrom had brought home a wife. Any minute the neighbors would arrive te play their spoon-on-kettle and tin horn serenade. No wedding was complete without a charivari. She heard Bill drive into the yard and open the back door. His heavy footstep* reverberated through the house as he made his way across the kitchen and dining room floors. A few seconds later she heard the sound of a door closing. As though nothing were afoot, he had gone into his bedroom. He didn't fool her! * * * TlfOMENTS dragged by. The •"•*• clouds that were beginning to roll over the moon became heavier in the rising wind. Big drops of rain began to splatter against the window and on the roof. Disappointment welled up inside her. Why had the neighbors waited so long? Abruptly, the rain took on an angry vehemence. In spite of the deepening sound outside, she could hear the dull throbbing of the vessels in her neck. She buried her head in her pillow. There would be no celebration! for young Tom Dahlstrom and his wife. None unless Tom'« mother invited the guests. And there was no possibility of that! Gradually, Elaine realized that she was very tired. The rhythm of the rain became a soporific. The last thing she remembered was the rain, the blessed rain that would soak the uncommonly parched fields. Tomorrow Tom could begin the fall plowing which had been delayed for weeks and weeks. Tom, her Tom, would be the first farmer in the are?, to «xr> n rlmpnt with 'contour pin- in|. Re c fine ~ arm, she sighed contentedly and fell asleep. • • * T HE sun was high over the forest when Elaine awakened next morning. Leisurely, she slid out of the massive walnut bed, stepped barefoot on the thick, braided rug and strolled to the window. Curling up on the win- dowseat, she let the sun shine on her for a moment, wishing it would warm her spirits like it warmed her body. She gazed down in the valley where dairy herds grazed on the rain-freshened meadows, unmindful of the monotonous drone of Tom's tractor. Memories of last night pressed down on her, bringing with them the well- remembered fear and haunting sense of insecurity. Oh, if only she hadn't broken- that plate. She tried to whisper a prayer. "Please, God, make Tom's mother believe I'm truly sorry. Make her accept me. Make her like me." That helped a little. Dressing quickly in a pair of old brown slacks and drawing an old cardigan over her blouse, Elaine made the bed and started downstairs. Careful not to touch the glossy banister, she skimmed down the steps. But her feet grew heavy as she walked through the sun- brightened living, room and into the dining room. She paused at the kitchen door. Mrs. Dahlstrom apparently hadn't heard her footstepa on the polished linoleum. Staring out "the window, she nervously opened and closed her thin hands over the handle of the woven basket on the table before her. At last Elaine forced herself to speak. "Good morning, Mrs. Dahlstrom. How is your thumb?* Mrs. Dahlstrom pushed back the sag in her shoulders and, without turning her head, said, "Good morning. My thumb it fine, thank you." "Are . . . are you fixing a picnic?" Elaine inquired timidly. There was a brittle quality in Mrs. Dahlstrom's veiea. "Na picnic this," she replied. "I'm get* ting ready to take naming lunch out to Tom and Bill." The ring in her voice filled Elaine with new d:.~-:iay. .«*• * CORRUGATED METAL CULVERT PIPE Automatic Flood Gates Concrete Culvert Tilt Concrete Septic Tanka Metal Septic Tanka Bett Prices — Prompt Delivery Webb Culvert Tile Co.
