Abstract:

The Muncys were really just passing through Junction on their way from New York. They stopped to have something to eat and to let Clyde Muncy look around, because he had spent part of his childhood there and wanted to see his boyhood friend, Bud Hibbard. Having come west from the hills of southern Indiana out to the prairies of Nebraska to become Mrs. Clinton Hibbard, Miss Caddy was considered "imported." She had cut roses in her garden with gloves on her white hands and had worn hats big as parasols with holes in the top to let her golden hair shine through. She had given garden parties with Japanese lanterns shining all over the roses and the soft clink of silver on china coming faintly through the dusk. It was very different now, with the big Hibbard house occupied only by Miss Caddy and Aunt Angie. Different too, because the day the Clinton Hibbard died Aunt Angie had locked the door between the front the the back parts of the house and had not had anything to do with Miss Caddy for nearly twenty years. And then, on a hot summer night, something happened.
