Looking out of the windows she saw that a thic. 1 : gray haze now blanketed the sun and the melancholy mist of the first gloomy day of autumn filled the room," bringing with it the premonition of more dark days to come. He. vague, seemingly unreasonable sense of failure still clung to her. But she was determined to dispel it by logical and resolute thinking. Elaine was almost certain that Tom would have said nothing so far this morning to his mother about the decision reached by Elaine and , himsetf the night before. There- fore it was up to Elaine to break the news. She could and she would do it She rose from the bed. All her fear was gone, now that she knew she came first in Tom's affection. Tom had made the choice she hoped he would make. Tom loved her even better than the farm. Elaine was determined, however, to break the news of their plans to Mrs. Dahlstrorn without malice, without hurting the woman more than events and love had decreed. She slipped quickly into her void slacks and sweater, then she -started down the stairs. In spite ~tof herself, her movement was hesitant and uncertain. But as 'she approached the kitchen, she was still determined to do what she nad to do She would look directly into Mrs Dahlstrom's Icy blue eyes, face her without a twinge of awe. With this thought, Elaine almost had an eagerness to see her mother-in- law and bring matters to their conclusion, There was a strange silence in the kitchen. Elaine entered. Mrs. Dahlstrom was not there The stillness in the room seemed to reach out and fill the nouse Where wa» Mr*. Daklstrom? Was she outside? Elaine stepped over to the window, looked out into the farmyard. She saw nothing. She listened. She heard nothing. Elaine suddenly felt alone. Would Mrs. Dahlstrom feel this way after she and Tom had gone? 9 9 • "pLATNE looked at the clock. It •^ was 9:30. She glanced at the stove, wearing its perpetual crown, the granite coffee pot Elaine took a cup from the cupboard and reached for the pot A little stream dribbled into her cup. It was not that she was hungry, but because it was 9:30 o'clock in the morning and the coffee pot was there. The half-filled pot -eemed too heavy to hold. Setting it back on the stove, she brushed the back of her hand across her moist forehead. Things suddenly seemed to be different Had she done right after all? Since she had forced, yes tricked, Tom into his decision to leave his home, she felt that she had no right even to help herself to Mrs. Dahlstrom's coffee. Where was the resolution and determination she had had a few minutes ago? Uneasiness wormed through her. She still believed that in order to be happy, she and Tom must leave this house. They had to get away from two women. Tom's mother and Astrid, the woman who wanted Tern. The thing to do was to get out of here. Soon Today She must find Tom and tell him. Seeing Tom would reassure her and rid her of this feeling that it was not right to go. She rinsed out the coffee cup, quickly wiped it and put it back in Mrs. Dahlstrom's neat cupboard. New she must find Tom. She went back to the window and looked out And saw Tom He was striding up the ionr slope troot the oarnyard toward | tne winamm. ne saw ,aer m me window and without pausing b« waved at her. It was like a tonic to Elaine. Watching him move effortlessly to the hilltop, a thrill of possession shivered through her. After waving, Tom seemed to have forgotten that Elaine was watching him. He leaned against the sturdy leg of the windmiH and looked out over the fields below the hill. Elaine could glimpse these fields from the house. In the somber light ol the gloomy autumn day the landscape was a monotonous blend of dusty mauve and dull brown. All of the early season beauty had faded from the forests; even the occasional pine tree seemed to have taken on a dreary hue * * * A S Elaine watched Tom, she •^ sensed something in his manner, something in the way that Torn leaned against the windmill' leg and took in the dreary scene, that told her that Tom himself saw nothing of the ugliness and gloom that she sensed to the landscape. Tom felt toward this land, the same way Elaine felt toward him. There was a thrill in the knowledge of possession. But Tom was not thinking of her. No, she knew he wasn't t v : nk- ing of his young wife. An icy finger seemed to race a path down her spine. Elaine turned away from the window. M she asked Tom to go away with her, it would be as if someone asked her to leave Tom. If Tom left the land he loved, the home he loved, and the mother who s .ad kept them both . intact for him, some day h« would regret it No matter how much Tom loved Elaine, no matter how he pretended to be interested in the Job with the state conservation com mi 8si on, he would still be sorry.' No, Elaine decided, she could not make Tom go away with her. And furthermore, she herself could not stay They would never find happiness here. Elaine sank down into a kitchen chair. What was she to do? What could she do? She '••*< '^nned. (lo Be Centime*) SHADY PARKING Ole Hickory Inn 707 W. Chlckasawte TV - RADIO SERVICE More Than 20 Years Training and Experience.
