【整理】--春山如笑

 

Her mother got out the things she needed to bake pies for her husband. Whenever she looked up, she could see the site that pained her soul. The new barn would stand in the place where forty years ago  Adoniram had promised their new house would stand. The family gathered for the new meal, they ate quickly, quietly, then Sanny went back to school and Nanny went to the store. Sarah followed  Adoniram.

 

''Father, I want to see you. Just a minute.''

 

''I have work to do, Mother.''

 

''Father, you come here.''

 

Sarah Penn stood in the door like a queen. She held her head as if it bore a crown.  Adoniram went.

 

''Sit down, Father.'' Sarah said, ''I have something I want to say to you.''

 

He sat down heavily.

 

''Well, what is it, Mother?''

 

''I want to know what you are building that new barn for. It cannot be that you think you need another barn.''

 

''I, I ain't got nothing to say about it.''

 

Sarah stood before her husband. ''Now Father, look here, I am gonna talk real plain to you. You see this room here. You look at it well. You see there ain't no carpet on the floor, and the paper is dropping off the walls. It is all I have had to work in and eat in and sit in since we were married. It is all the room Nanny will have to be married in.''

 

She moved across the room as if it were a tragic stage. She threw open the door to their tiny bedroom; she threw open the door to their tiny storage room; she threw open the door to the unfinished room above where the children slept.

 

''Now Father, I want to know if you think you are doing right. Forty years ago you promised we would have a new house before the year was over. You said you would not ask me to live in a place such as this. It is forty years now, you have been making more money and you ain't built no house yet. You've built new barns and now you are going to build another. You are keeping your farm animals better than your own flesh and blood. I want to know if you think it is right.''

 

''I ain't got nothing to say.''

 

''You cannot say nothing without admitting it ain't right, Father. And there is another thing, I have got along for forty years and I suppose I can get along for forty more, but if we do not have another house, Nanny will not be able to live with us after she marries. I can not have it so.''

 

Sarah Penn's face was buring. She had defended her little cause like a great speaker, but her opponent remained stubbornly silent.

 

''Father, ain't you got nothing to say?''

 

''I have got to go off and get a lot of crushed stone. I cannot stand talking all day.''

 

''Father, won't you think it over and build a house there instead of a barn?''

 

''I ain't got nothing to say.''

 

Adoniram left. Sarah went into their bedroom. When she came out, her eyes were red. she spread some cotton cloth on the kitchen table. she begain to make new shirts for her husband.
