And your few little things don't take up much water." She had spoken even more curtly on that first Sunday. At 10:30 she bad come into the living room, where Elaine and Tom were leisurely scanning the paper. Talking to the newspaper scattered on the floor rather than to them, she had said. "Isn't it about time you got ready for church?" Obediently, his large warm ones, and pulled her to her feet. Wrapping his arms around her, he leaned down and whispered against her hair, "Do you realize, Mrs. Dahlstrom. that this is the first time we've been alone in the house since we arrived? Let's not precious moments funny paper." As she responded to his hungry kiss, Elaine forgot everything except the quick urgency of her i way, too much time to be under ! her disapproving gaze. One of them—Elaine or Mrs. Dahlstrom—would have to give. She could feel it in her heart Every beat was like the echo of the tick of a time-bomb, set to go off maybe tonight, maybe next waste these reading the love. Next Sunday Mrs get dressed and left for church week, but inevitably set to explode with repercussions that would scar or mend her whole life. Would Tom choose his mother?

She couldn't stand beside Mrs. Dahlstrom and thank her old friends for their good wishes when all the time she felt that her mother-in-law's wishes were not good. "We . . . we're not going, she said, more emphatically than she meant to, and leaned back in her chair. Mrs. Dahlstrom looked ques- tionintfly at Tom.
