The room was too closed to well known and their knowledge of each other was too strong. They could not talk about happy things in a happy way. She did not like to think so but it was true. She tried to hold the joy of the day, she said, "The cake was nice, wasn't it?", "Em?", "The cake, it was nice", "Emm, yes. Are you ready yet? " It was no use. He would never talk about things. She kept putting away her dress and her pins. She wanted to sit and talk about the whole day, to pick out and taste again the most beautiful moments. But he wanted to put off the lights and go to sleep. Oh, why wouldn't he ever talk about things with her?

She looked out the window; the night was still and cold. Blue and wildly shadows darken the pale snow. And because she could not share her feelings with him, she felt an old unhappiness. It turned her joy to a gray color, the gray color of everyday life. He called out, "Well, Ma, aren't you ever coming to bed?"

Then she put off the light and got into bed. Now he was at rest and soon felt asleep. She lay still, holding onto the things in her mind. They were deep things without words or form. She had done this on so many other nights. She had no both joy and sadness. She had lain there and held them, understood them. And now, she was not unhappy, she was calm, she was not even angry that he felt asleep, leaving her with her own plots, quiet and alone.
