ROUND UP

" My watch is all right. You probably dozed off."
" I haven't closed my eyes."
" Well, it's time you did. Why don't you go to bed? "
" Why don't you?
" I'm not sleepy."
" Neither am I. But honestly, Tom, it's silly for you to stay up. I'm just doing it so I can fix the stockings, and because I feel so wakeful. But there's no use of your losing your sleep."
" I couldn't sleep a wink till they're home."
" That's foolishness ! There's nothing to worry about. They're just having a good time. You were young once yourself."
" That's just it! `Vhen I was young, I was young." He picked up his paper and tried to get interested in the shipping new.
" What time is it? " asked Grace.
" Five minutes of three."
" Maybe they're staying at the Murdocks' all night."
" They'd have let us know."
" They were afraid to wake us up, telephoning." At three-twenty a car stopped at the front gate. " There they are ! "
" I told you there was nothing to worry about."
Tom went to the window. He could just discern the outlines of the Murdock boy's roadster, whose lighting system seemed to have broken down.
" He hasn't any lights," said Tom. " Maybe I'd better go out and see if I can fix them."
" No, don't! " said Grace aharply. " He can fix them himself. He's just saving them while he stands still."
" Why don't they come in? "
" They're probably making plans."
" They can make them in here. I'll go out and tell them we're still up."
" No, don't! " said Grace as before, and Tom obediently remained at the window.
It was nearly four when the car lights flashed on and the car drove away. Caroline walked into the house and stared dazedly at her parents.
" Heavens! What are you doing up?"
Tom was about to say something, but Grace forestalled him.
" We were talking over old Christmases," she said. " Is it very late? "
" I haven't any idea," said Caroline.
