CHAMPION

I don't know nothin'," said Midge.
" Don't lie to me, Michael. What did you do to your brother?" " Nothin'."
" You hit him."
" Well, then, I hit him. What of it? It ain't the first time."
Her lips pressed tightly together, her face like chalk, Ellen Kelly rose from her chair and made straight for him. Midge backed against the door.
" Lay off'n me, Ma. I don't want to fight no woman." Still she came on breathing heavily. " Stop where you're at, Ma," he warned.
There was a brief struggle and Midge's mother lay on the floor
before him.
" You ain't hurt, Ma. You're lucky I didn't land good. And I
told you to lay off'n me."
" God forgive you, Michael ! "
Midge found Hap Collins in the showdown game at the Royal. " Come on out a minute," he said. Hap followed him out on the walk. " I'm leavin' town for a Vile," said Midge. " What for? "
" Well, we had a little run-in up to the house. The kid stole a half buck off'n me, and when I went after it he cracked me with his crutch. So I nailed him. And the old lady came at me with a chair and I took it off'n her and she fell down."
" How is Connie hurt?"
" Not bad."
" What are you runnin' away for?"
" Who the hell said I was runnin' away? I'm sick and tired o'
gettin' picked on; that's all. So I'm leavin' for a Vile and I want
a piece o' money."
" I ain't only got six bits," said Happy.
" You're in bad shape, ain't you? Well, come through with it." Happy came through.
" You oughtn't to hit the kid," he said.
" I ain't astin' you who can I hit," snarled Midge. " You try
to put somethin' over on me and you'll get the same dose. I'm
goin' now."
" Go as far as you like," said Happy, but not until he was sure
that Kelly was out of hearing.
