sour

by Nathaniel Hatcher (and Zane Grey)

Edd strode off toward the sycamore, and his followers approached, mindful of his admonition. I reckon I’ve a good many reasons, returned Edd. It was a family gathering, this after-supper vigil in front of the big fire. A deer skin with the fur uppermost lay on the floor. She could not overcome her pride in her power to uplift him. It will be hard enough for me to teach school, let alone live among strangers. Lucy and Clara fled to the security of their tent, and refused to come out. With your rugs an pictures, an the way you fix things up, it’ll be Jake. A mouse or ground squirrel rustled in the brush under the floor of the tent. And aren’t you coming back here in the fall? But city life, multitudes of people, the social codes had all palled upon her. Meanwhile Joe and Gerd Claypool had come for the first buckets. Meanwhile Joe and Gerd Claypool had come for the first buckets. He was manifestly in the grip of a frenzied glee. Sam, by accident or design, had fled in her direction. It was a family gathering, this after-supper vigil in front of the big fire. Long communion with the secret affection of her heart had brought happiness with resignation. She could not trust this new elemental self, this transformation of Lucy Watson in the wilderness. Shore it’s got to be strained, explained Edd. Some of them sped like bullets ahead of him to attack Sadie. When the tent was warm they got up and dressed, and made coffee or tea, and cooked some breakfast. The coming of spring was marked by Allie Denmeades marriage to Gerd Claypool. It forced her into a position where she must find out the truth and bigness of love herself. The remarks of the boys behind him were not calculated to make him conservative. Girls, put on whatever you fetched along an be ready to duck into this brush. After the dust cleared away Lucy saw him knocking the trunk apart. Clara had an attack of laughter that seemed half hysterical. It’s a long time since I felt so good over anything. Denmeade said she was glad for the sake of the Claypools. With your rugs an pictures, an the way you fix things up, it’ll be Jake. Sam strode toward the sycamore and Bert followed. Aside from these impressions Lucy received one that caused her to sigh. Now, ma, I gave you a hunch yestiddy, replied Denmeade. Shore it’d be good if you an Bert tackled the tree together. From other sources Lucy learned that Clara was the best teacher ever employed by the school board. The sheer fact that he loved her was a tremendous shock. Spring, summer, fall were his active seasons. Lucy learned this, and much more, upon her arrival at the cabin. Serve Sam just right, declared Sadie, for bein so darn smart.
