The Way West (1955)

half came from the buried doubt that the man was equal to the boy. So let the dream be dreamed, Summers thought. Let the shoot stand. He wouldn't cut it down, even if he could. Let time do it. Let life do it. It was work too dirty for a man.
" She didn't have to tell you, Brownie," he said again.
" I already told myself how honest it was of her."
" And she could've made out she took to you, 'stead of sayin' she didn't know."
" Maybe she never will take to me."
" I ain't in doubt about that."
The boy's voice had a kind of eagerness in it. "Ain't you, Dick?"
" Not a mite."
The voice sank back. "Even so, I don't know. A man don't like less than what he'd hoped."
No, thought Summers, leaving the words unsaid, a man didn't like to take less than he had hoped, but he had to take it. Maybe that was the big lesson, maybe that was all he'd learned and all that anyone could learn-always settle for half.
" Kin you git along without her, Brownie?"
" I don't feel so. Don't feel like I ever could. On'yon'y-"
" There's your answer then," said Summers, and knew that there it was. Closer than his fool thought, closer than the wide ranging of his mind, there it was, plain as day. There it always had been, and he had seen it from the first but still had passed it by.
" How is it, Dick?"
" By God, take herl"
" You mean it?"
