Yet all energy had ebbed out of her, leaving her muscles shriveled up iand powerless. "Hey. get going," someone (whispered. • Elaine felt her nostrils distend >at the impatient, unmistakable ..command in the youthful voice. '(Irritation impelled a little vitality to her limbs and she moved out into the center of the stage. Marion winked and bobbed her head, the signal for Elaine to .start dancing. Instantaneously, •'as though a magician had thrown I a giant cape over it, the maze of !laces disappeared. An inspired vitality shot into her. She was 'alone. She was happy.

"That was wonderful! Wonderful!" Marion whispered. Reality came back for its revenge with her words. The ap- fplause hammered against her .temples like a pneumatic drill. ;There was Elaine's ther-in- |]aw in the front seat, .n« edges lot her lips forced upwards, her thin hands banging together in a semblance of clapping, her black eyes Dlack with shock. ;F,laine expected the shock would ;change to reproach.

Only the delight and wonderment and friendliness on Marion's flushed face kept her from running away. But she couldn't desjsrt her friend in her moment of triumph. Strange, how many people she must know 'in 4he audience. Old classmates and townspeople she had known all { her life. Yet Marion, whom she j had met only a few weeks ago, and a few others, were the only ones she counted as real friends. Many old acquaintances hadn't even come to her new home to wish her well. Perhaps they | sensed as intuitively as she did '. that it really wasn't her home. Perhaps fear of a cool reception ; from Mrs. Dahlstrom kept them I away. j Vll the rhythm had gone from her body. But she willed her; feet to skip through the motions , of a short encore. Not even j Marion seemed to notice that, rhythm eluded her. At last they let her go. Backstage again, she tried to respond graciously to the breathless congratulations of the students clustered around her. • * * TN the cheap mirror someone. •* had donated to the high school; theatrical enterprise, her blacked face seemed to increase the depth of her eye sockets and her gray eyes stared back at her. pale and haunted. Even when she cleansed her face, the haunted look remained, increasing her own deep-rooted fear. The vermillion on her lips seemed to emphasize the paleness that had transferred itself j to her cheeks. She closed- her, eyes against her spooky reflection and silently prayed for the strength to change from her scanty costume and go out to face Tom and her mother-in- law. Only a few stragglers remained in the auditorium when she edged around the corner of the stage Tom broke ;>\v;iv fin- i a small group ol people lingering I near the door and came to her, his firm steps echoing boldly in the nearly empty room. Grasping her hand, he grinned at her, "You were quite a hit, sweetheart!" The surprise and elation in his voice drowred some of her iear. Elaine, somewhat relaxed, let him lead her down the aisle to the only other person in the place she was aware of—Mrs. Dahlstrom. As Elaine approached her rnpther-in-law, the same terror that had clutched her the day Tom brought her home, rushed back. * * • A STRID, gorgeous in a maroon boucle that caressed her slender curves, was standing beside Mrs. Dahlstrom and in the confusion, Elaine had not seen her. For a moment, Elaine was actually glad Astrid was there. "Jerry Schmidt and Astrid have invited you and Tom to have a snack with them," Mrs. Dahlstrom said to Elaine. "Hello, Jerry. Hello. Astrid. And thank you," Elaine managed to say, although she realized now she had nothing to thank Astrid for. Her presence had merely postponed the showdown between Tom's mother and hersell. The longer Mrs. Dahlstrom had to brood and ponder over Elaine's unseemly behavior, the worse her anger would be. Elaine's stomach began to chum. Squelching a sigh, Elaine asked, with as much eagerness as she could muster, "Where are we going?" "Pete's Place," Astrid answered coolly. "Pete's Place?" Elaine repeated. "Is that new?" The corners of Astrid's carefully outlined lips curled, "Not exactly. It used to be Peterson'i restaurant. Since they remodeled, it's not such a greasy spoon." She smiled again and added, "I hope you don't mind." "Why should I mind?" Elaine asked evenly. "And Peterson's restaurant was never a greasy spoon. I worked there once, you know." Astrid'? eyebrows raised con- lemp. • * FARMERS: See the Latest Thing In King Cotton Choppers 2-Rrow Chopper to Fit Most Any Tractor $100 Shop Where You Can Save Money At 705 Clear Lake Ave. Fh. 3-6978 "That's what I call real advancement—he't got tht control of a big league pitcher!** 'Not bad!
