Her mother got out of things she need bake pies for her husband. Whenever she looked up, she could see the site that pained her soul. The new barn was standing in the place where 40 years ago Adoniram had promised their new house would stand.

 

The family gather for the new meal, the 8 quickly quitely. Then Sammy went back school and Annie went to Straw.

 

Sarah followed Adoniram.

 

“Father, I want to say you just minutes.”

 

“I have work to do, mother.”

 

“Father, you come here.” Sarah Penn stood in the door like a queen. She held head as if it was 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 wanna know what you are building a new barn for. You can not be to think to need another barn. I, I got to say nothing about it.” Sarah stood before his husband.

 

“Now, Father, look here. I am gonna talk real plan to you. He see this room here, you look at it well. You see it there is no carpet on he floor. The papers drop off the walls. It is all I have had to walk in, eat in and sit in since we were married. It is all the room Annie have to be married in.”

 

She moved across the room as if it was a tragic stage, she through open the door to their tiny bed room, she through open to their tiny storage room, she through open the door to the unfinished room above were the children slept.

 

“Now, Father, I wanna know if you think you’re doing right. 40 years ago you promised we would have a new house before the year was over. You said you will not ask me to live in the place such as this. It is 40 years now, you are making more money and you went build no house yet. You will build new barns and now you are going to build another. You are keeping your farm animals better than your own flesh blood. I wanna know if you think it is right.”

 

Adoniram got nothing to say.

 

“You can not say nothing without meeting it is right, father. There is another things, I have got long for 40 years and I suppose I can get long for 40 more. But we do not have another house. Annie will not be able to live with us after she marries. I can not have it so.”

 

Sarah Penny’s face was burning, she had defended her little cause like a great speaker, but her opponent remained stubbornly silent.

 

“Father, and you got nothing to say?”

 

“I have got to go often, get a lot of crush stone, I can not stand talking all day.”

 

“Father, won’t you think it over and build house there instead of barn?”

 

Adoniram 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 began to make new shirts for her husband.
