He scrambled to his feet and stood by the side of the road, shading bis eyes as he watched them. They came up fast, hitting their brakes and sliding, turning their wondering, incredulous faces toward him as they saw and understood at once who it was and what had happened. They backed up noisily, gunning and braking violently, until they were close to him. Link Aller leaned on the door of the Chevvy convertible he was driving. He looked at Ricky with a glint of superior amusement in his black eyes. "What'd you do, boy?" he drawled. "Steal a car?" "Steal nothing," Ricky answered, leaning nonchalantly against his coupe and hooking his thumbs in his belt "I bought it." "You what?" Chub yelled from his Ford Tudor. "I bought it," Ricky said truculently, not prepared for the way they were acting. As though it was a joke. "I suppose you thought my folks could stop me." "Naw," Link whooped. "We figure Merle paid you to take it off his hands." The girls giggled. Ricky ignored them all but Sharon, who was riding with Link. She didn't aeem to be paying any attention to what was going on, but was filing her fingernails. He wanted to shake her, and make her acknowledge that she knew he had bo'jght a car asked, getting out of his car and joining Ricky. The other boys took their cue from Sherm and gathered around too. "Aw, you know," Ricky said loudly, so that Sharon would hear. "I hit the turn too fast, when I kicked her she didn'1 have enough dig to bring me around. ..." Ricky made a careless gesture with his hand. T INK ALLER winked at the others. "1 didn't know this heap could go fast enough to slide gravel," he said, touching the coupe with his booted toe. "I've had it on the road. It's a real turtle." For a moment Ricky felt like walking away and leaving them and his coupe, but he knew that would be too childish. "I won't argue with you," he said, trying to sound uninterested. "But I'm in the ditch and I need some help to get out. You guys want to help me out, or prove I couldn't be there in the first place?" It was the right thing to say. This time they laughed with him, and moved to help. Sherm backed his car around until it was near enough to be hooked to Ricky's coupe by chains. Ricky got in his car and started his motor. With his car in reverse, Sherm towing, and the other boys pushing by hand, he was soon back on the road. The chains were unhooked and the boys gathered to hear the sound of Ricky's motor and discuss his car. They were pleased that he had wheels, but it wasn't heir way to come right out and say so. Their way of welcoming fUcky was to rib him. I know she's not perfect." Ricky said seriously as he gunned the motor and a cloud of blue smoke rolled out of the exhaust pipe. "But at least I've got my own rod." "Rod!" Chub howled, wnn- as the fumes enveloped him. "You don't call this a hot rod do you? Man, it's more like a warm stick." "Well, let's get on back tt town," Link said. "Want a tow, Ricky?" "I'll get there," Ricky snapped. "You might—if I pushed you," Link teased, with a proud look at his convertible. It was bright yellow, with chrome exhaust extensions and Buick portholes along the hood. Ricky looked sullen, but didn't answer. After all the waiting, and torment, and all the trouble he was in, the big moment of his life had come, and it had been flat Only Jerry Long stayed by him as the others moved toward theii cars. Quiet, thoughtful Jerry, who was his best friend. "How did you get your dad to okay it?" he asked. Ricky didn't look up. "I didn't," he said. "That's not. so good." Ricky Ufted his head. "Why not? You guys all did the same thing, didn't you? If it was good for you, why isn't it good for me? I'm not a kid any more. Can't you see?" * * * TERRY scuffed the gravel with •* the-, toe of his shoe. "I had to fight "for mine," he said, "but my dad agreed before I went and bought it." "I tried it that way," Ricky said. "You know my folks. They didn't say yes and they didn't say no. I ... I don't know what they said." "Maybe you should have waited," Jerry said. "Anyway, you could have done better than this . car. What did Merle try to stick you for it? Last I heard, t could be had for 25 bucks." "I made a good deal," Ricky said, mentally kicking himself. "We've been buddies • long time," Jerry said. "I know when you're faking. What was it, thirty-five?" "Worse," Ricky admitted, look- inf ashamed. "Forty." "You've got to learn not to go off half-cocked. See you in town."
