Title Love's Reward
Description LOVE'S REWARD David Rosier Moroni, Utah First Place Short Story The morning sun sent sparkling rays through the kitchen window in a big Moroni house. May Marlowe's hair glowed gold in the sunlight. She stood at the window and watched her son disappearing down the road toward the fields in a wagon filled with her husband's boys. So young, she thought. So young to do so much work alone. If Aaron could be home, he would... but he can't be. She turned away from the window and picked up a basket of fresh eggs. Sliding the basket to her elbow, she tied a bonnet under her chin and picked up an empty honey jar. She stepped into the Common Hall. Mariah's door was open slightly. Amy saw Mariah's younger children playing noiselessly on the floor. Mariah's morning mood was invariably horrid, and children knew it. Aaron said position with which he would spend his mornings. Amy suspected the disposition had not been helped by Aaron's taking a second wife. Amy stepped out into the pleasant air. The chickens scat- tered as she walked around the house and up the street to the Protestabt school. So strange for her to be here in this Mormon town, Amy thought. Frail Clarissa Knight, the teacher-missionary, was a desperately unsuccessful preacher. And afraid and lonely, too. Especially lonely. Amy had been sorry for her when she came to town, so shunned she had to hire apostates to build her school and apartment. Slowly Amy had developed a strong friendship with the cautious Clarissa. - 9 -
