Chlckasawba XXIII several minutes Elaine sat in the kitchen chair thinking. What was she to do? She could not stay in this house, she could not force Tom to leave the farm he loved. Slowly she rose and walked out of the kitchen. Her eyes focused a moment on the telephone. She had an impulsive urge to call Marion Erickson, her friend at the high school, and ask her to come up after her. It was Saturday and Marion would be free. Then Elaine realized that she could not impose her problems on Marion. She would call Jerry. He would find out for her when the next train for Madison was due. Jerry might even drive her to the railway station. The thought was formed and compelling before she could stop it. What would Tom think? Let Tom think what he would, for if Elaine left tinder the shadow of his disapproval, that shadow would obscure her memory sooner. Tom could marry Astrid then, and be hanpy. Elaine choked back her tears. - At least. Elaine thought bitterly, Tom's mother approved of Astrid Nelson. For once in her life, Elaine was thankful that lack of money had always prevented her from accumulating many clothe* and personal items. It would hardly take her 10 minutes to pack. And In another 10 minutes or so she could leave If she wanted to. Ves, it would be best if she left before Mrs. Dahlstrom, or Tom cam* In for noon lunch. Then there would be no scene. Elaine's feet carded her to the stairway, then they seemed to laf at the foot of the stairs. In an involuntary gesture of weariness, she rested her arm on the flossy surface of the banister. She didn't want to climb the •tain yet She didn't want to r*. Her problem w*» still not solved and running away didn't seem to be the right solution. Elaine wanted to think. Incredibly, the grand piano in one corner of the living room seemed to beckon to her. Elaine knew she ought not to touch it. But what did it matter? Whatever she had done here so far had ended disastrously. Nothing further could happen now. because she would be leaving soon —either with Tom or without him. This would be her last act in this house. Scarcely realizing it. Elaine had crossed the room from the stairway to the piano. Now she sat down on the bench and her leaden fingers fanned the page? of the music book on the rack before her. THESE were the Norwegian •*• folksongs Astrid Nelson had played that night when she first came to see Tom and Elaine. Elaine had not cared for the music that night, but now she thought that without Astrid's disturbing presence, they might be cute. Spreading open the book. Elaine began to play, uncertainly at first, and then with more assurance. Surprisingly, the sound of her own soft laughter soon began to blend with the music. Why, these were not bad after all! There was a bit of fun in things Norse. Forgetting all about her previous determination to pack her scanty belongings and be off. she flipped the paffe to the next song, and to the next Suddenly she heard something. Someone was calling her and the cry clamored through the happy music. Her fingers crashed down in sharp dissonance, btit even this was a harmonious chord compared to the discordant cry of "Elaine" that'came at her again. As if the keys were on fire, she jerked her fingers away from the piano. Tb* ttrkkai call carat louaUf now: TOauae. will you come out here, please?" Mrs. Dahlstrom was calling from the kitchen. For a moment. Elaine had a sudden rebellious urge to disobey. What right did Mrs. Dahlstrom have to order her around? Then Elaine checked the thoughts. Refusing to heed Mrs. Dahlstrom's call would gain nothing and only make matters worse. Besides, it was not an order, but a request. Mrs. Dahlstrom had a way of speaking that made an ordinary request seem like a command. It was best to make the break with as little friction as possible, leaving few wounds to heal. "Do . you hear me, Elaine?" came the voice again. Elaine took a deep breath, then answered. "Yes, Mrs. Dahlstrom. I'm corning." She forced up her head and got up from the piano bench. For a moment, panic lashed over her and receded, leaving behind the well-remembered fear and that ever-present feeling of guiltiness. What's the matter with me. Elaine asked herself. She turned and eyes looking straight ahead, and with a determined set to her lew. she marched out to the kitchen and to Mrs. Dahlstrom. • • • TITRS. DAHLSTROM sat at the ^ kitchen table. But she was not alone. Beside her was another woman and steaming cups of coffee were on the table before them. The coffee had just been poured. Both women had come Into the house through the back door while Elaine was playing the piano, no doubt. Elaine paused In the doorway, as she recognized the second woman. It was Mrs. Nelson, Astrid's mother. ' ' Mrs. Nelson, without noticing Elaine, was turning her head. glancing at a^shelf on the opposite wall of the kitchen. "Signe. my daar. whatever happened to that beautiful Japanese plate you had?" «ht demanded in a high, rasping voice. "I hope you didn't break it A beautiful thing—a present from Thorvald, wasnt it? 1 * (!• • TV -RADIO SERVICE More Than 20 Years Training and Experience. Factory Service Guarantee on All Makes.
