(Buddy; Howard ! xxi INDIGNATION flared through •^ Elaine at Tom's words. All of the resentment and uneasiness of these weeks in the Dahlstrom home now came tc the surface. The calm, controlled reasoning about personality clashes was lost in a sarcasm that she could never recall •That doesn't sound like a loving husband. Tom. That sounds more like your mother." Tom Dahlstrom's shoulders squared. He planted both bare feet flat on the floor. "Well, I didn't see Ma around," he said, "but maybe she would have disapproved, it she hali seen you and Jerry dancing. I - hope she would." Elaine's nostrils quivered; All the hurt and anger and fear she had kept under control since they had come back to Tom's home three weeks ago ftill burned to the tip of her tongue. She did not try to hold it back now. She let it flash. "You can be quite sure your mother would (disapprove of my having a little fun with Jerry. And she would have approved of the manner *in which you devoted yourself to Astrid Nelson." Tom stood up. "Devote myself to Astrid? You're crazy," he growled. "Oh, I'm crazy, am I?" Elaine cried, suddenly relishing her own forked tongue of anger. "1 wp- pose you don't know that I know Astrid has been sneaking over the hills on that little sorrel mare to see you almost every day." "Astrid doesn't sneak," Tom countered. "She's above that fort of thing. I've known Astrid «11 my life. 'If she stops by for a neighborly visit, it'i nobody s business but hers." "Of course it'« not my business," Elaine replied, trying to make her voice a« chill as her husband's. "Besides Astrid'f a vary inulliitat woman. knows all about cross-breeding, and fertilizer, and crop rotation, and multicrop outfits and power spreaders and things. You should have married her. You'd be much happier." "Maybe .. would at that," Tom answered evenly. Elaine felt as if someone had thrown a rock against her chest. The truth of his words struck her and she gasped and felt herself wilt under Tom Dahlstrom's dark gaze. • • • rpHEN, miraculously it seemed, his hands were on her shoulders, gentle and firm. "What's the matter, Lenny?" he asked. "What's wrong with us? Ever since we've been home, there's been something between ut." The memory of all the fear and insecurity she had felt came to Elaine and with it the knowledge that she would soon feel it again. "It isn't us," she whispered. "It's this house. It's your mother's house. And your mother doesn't like me. She never will like me, Tom, as long as I must live with her. No house is big enough for two women." There, the truth was out, as it must inevitably come out. Quaking inside, Elaine waited for Tom's reaction. As though his hand had grown to- heavy for his bulging muscles to support, they slid off her shoulders. Tom turned his back on her and stared out of the window, but he was not dreaming of the fields and the crops as they would be next year. Elaine knew he was thinking of what she had said. . She waited, not daring to think, not daring to utter a prayer. It WM Tom's choice to make. Finally Tom turned toward her. He sank down on the window seat again Put:.r.g Iv. • : . -.-.•' on lier waist* be pulled ner to him 131 she stood between hst knees. "I think maybe you're right," he* admitted, his voice dull and Lifeless. "Ma has been acting funny. And you're like a whipped dog around her." He sighed deeply. "Guess well all be happier if I accept that job." "What job?" Elaine asked. "I guess you don't know about it," he said. He sighed again and his voice came back to normal tone. "You haven't been around enough since I got the letter for I me to tell you about it Well, the state conservation commission has offered me a job.'"" Hf squeezed her with a semblance of enthusiasm and said, "You know, it might be fun. I'd live |ir Madison and I'd spend my ; time telling other farmers how to farm." Tom stood up and kissed her, gently at first, then with such insistence that it should have swept all of Elaine's emotional upset away and left only an answering passion. But still a vague sense of failure spoiled the moment for Elaine, T ONG afterwards, for what ^ seemed hours, Elaine . lay there in the big walnut bad, lii- tening to Tom's regular brtath- 'ing and the tick of tbt alarm clock on the dresser. What was wrong with her now? She was getting what she wanted. Within a few days they'd be out »f thit house, far away from Tom'i mother. But still Elaine could not fathom why this vague sense of failure persisted. It must be that the moon shadows gave her a creepy feeling. Tomorrow, in the daylight, things again would seem rational. Elaine would be certain that she and Tom were doing the right thing. The right thing for them, the right thing for everyone, even Mrs. Dahl* itrom, although Mr*, Dahlstrom probably wouldn't ste it that way. The thought WM comforting anyway, Eventually, Elaine's vakefulncss disappeared, disin- '.-grate-' tnt-i a troubled slceo.
