Title Velkommen Hjem Peter
Description S^COi© PLACE SHOKT STORY YELKOMMSB HJiK PliJffiR David G. liackey 295 West Union Kanti, Utah 84642 How could a man love two women the sair.e? It waa beyond him and yet he knew he did. Peter stood, stretched his arcc above his head, and began walking back to the snail boarding house. It was an odd looking adobe building with a brick addition on the north side t and a wooden shanty oonnecting at the south and west ends. Snoke was slowly curling up through the crumbling chimney. Pater knew that it was past the hour Sister Pitchford had said dinner would be on the table, but the warm Nephi sunshine had made the January afternoon a bit brighter. Besides, he felt too cooped up in the house. He just wanted to be on his way home to Manti. Peter stopped outside the door long enough to knock the crusted snow from his boots before walking in. "Is that you, Peter?" Sister Pitchford called from another room. "I've set you a plate on the edge of the stove. . . there's plenty of bread and potatoes. . . help yourself." Peter glanced through the open bedroom door as he walked by, and could see the small white-headed woman sitting in a rocker busily sewing. Peter turned his thoughts to home, It hadn't been easy living the higher law of marriage, but Peter believed that he had "been a good provider for his families. Oh, sometimes his wives would accuse him of being more partial to one family than the other. But generally everyone was contented. As Peter sat down to eat he wondered about Annie Dorthea, his first wife. Today, being a Friday, he could see her baking bread and washing clothes. He chuckled as he though about her scolding young Joseph for leaving the milk pail where the cats could get at it. She was a good woman! 104
