One of the picture on the wall was not hanging straight. He noticed it, and went to fix it. He step back several times to make sure the picture was really straight, then he give it a gentle touch with his hand.
"she always does that", he explained it to me, "it's like a finishing pat a mother gives her child's hair after she has brushed it. I have seen her fix all these thing so often that I can do it just the way she does. I don't know why I do it, I just do it."

As he talked, I realized there was something in this room that he wanted me to discover.I looked around. When my eys reached the corner of the room near the fireplace, he broke into a happy laugh and rub his hands together.

"That's it", he cried out, "You have found it. I know you would. It is her picture." 
I went to a little black shelf, that held a small picture of a most beautiful wowan I had ever seen. There was a sweetness and softness in the woman's expression that I had never seen before.

The man took the picture from my hand and stared at it, "she was nineteen on her last birthday, that was the day we were married".
"When you see her?"
"Oh, just wait util you meet her."
"where is she now?" I asked.
"Oh, she is away", the man said, putting the picture back on the little black shelf."She went to visit her parents. They lived forty or fifty miles from here. She has been gone two weeks today".
"When will she be back", I asked.
"Well, this is Wednesday", he said slowly, "She will be back on Saturday in the evening".
I felt, I shocked since I regret, "I am sorry because I will be gone by then", I said.
"Gone, no, why should you go? Don't go. She will be so sorry. You see she likes to have people come and stay with us".
"No, I really must leave", I said firmly.
"You picked up her picture and held it before my eyes, here", he said, "now, you tell her to her face that you could have stayed to meet her and you would not".
