He was about to drive away when he got rwt of the car agam and went into th« house. His father and mother were in the kitchen"Did you see what th« guys brought me?" Ricky began. "Four tire* and a lot of other stuff." "That was nice of tb^m," his mother said. It had been decided not to make aa issue out of Ricky's action. Ricky turned to hie father. "I've got a question, D«d." -What?" "I want to drive over to Merle'* to change tires, but I don't know if I should, without insurance. Yo« never know what might happen." Ricky's father looked pleased. *I like the way you're starting off, Ricky. I'm glad you came to me with that question. A* a matter of fact, I've already filled out your application. You can sign it now, and you'll be covered." "That'i rweH," Ricky said. "Real swell." •It's on th« living room desk. While Ricky went into the liv ing room to iifn, hi» father and mother exchanged glanctt. "S«em* to be working out fine, jhi* father. §»id. . I Ricky'f mother nodded without (much tftthu*iaa§m. "If* his nr»t [day. We'll «e« what happ«n« «ft«r tturM months." ' Merle had aH his arguments ready about why he couldn't take jack the car. 'You bought the car fair and square," Merle said. "I don't see K»W I can take it back." 'I don't want to bring it back." Ricky sat down on tbe running board of a truck. "Everybody thinks I got a junker. I want to prove I didn't, and I've got a plan. If I came down here in my spare time and helped you around the garage, would you let me use your tools so I could work on my car? And maybe give me some advice?" "I dont know," Merle said, searching for a cigaret. "I learn pretty fast," Ricky said. "And of course I'd buy ail my parts from you." "Well," Merle sat down and pushed his greasy red cap back on his head. "Would you want to keep the place clean and change tires and stuff like that?" "Anything you say," Ricky promised. "I'vt got some tires to put on the coupe now. You can have the old ones if you want the'm." While Merle thought, Ricky outlined his plan for rebuilding the coupe, selling it, and starting over again, with the idea of having a regular custom shop. "Fixing up old cars would only be the beginning," Ricky said. "A guy who pays $5000 bucks lor a big car gets one that's exactly like all the others. If we were s«t up to make it the only one of its kind, I'M bet we'd get a lot of customers who wanted their cars to look special." "Kid," Merit said slowly, squinting at his cigaret, "I think you got something. You come hi and help me, and I'll let you use my tools. And if you sell that car and make some money, I'll com* in with you as a partner." COIWOR stw ttcky drive up to the garage and aware that his had stopped eating AM! W<M wntcliittc feim. Hi* Mtt DICKY •"• parents arm was on the table, curved protectively around the dish of pudding before him, his face was directly over the dish, almost low enough to touch. His spoon scraped noisily as he dug after the last few lines of chocolate. "Wouldn't it be easier to ea* the dish, Ricky?" "All right," Ricky said wearily. "I'll be refined." He sat up straight and tried to look prim"Don't get offended," his father said. "The reason we want you to keep your face out of your dish is so we can see what you look like. The only time we see you any more is at meals." "I'm busy," Ricky said. "Working at the grocery store all day, and then on my car at night. I don't have much free time. If I can be excused, I'd like to go now. I promised Merle I'd be down right after supper." Ricky's parents exchanged glances. It was time they talked to the boy. "We were just wondering, Ricky," Mr. Madison said, "if it's such a good idea for you to spend so much time with Merle Connor." "What's wrong with Merle?* Ricky demanded, getting on tfcm defensive. •Tie's an older man, and married, and . . ." "You and Dad are married and older than I am," Ricky said. "And you want me to stay around with you." "Don't be ridiculous," Ricky's father said in an annoyed tone. "And don't make fun of your mother." "I'm not being ridiculous and I'm not making fun of Mom," Ricky said loudly. "*I don't se« why you and Mom have to pick on Merit just because he's good enough to let me use his place t* work on my car. And help me, too. That's more than a lot of people have done." "That part is all right, Ricky. We don't mind your spending some time on your car. But when you spend all your time playing with it, it's time we stepped to."
