Velma was glad to have made a new young friend in Susan.
But waiting for the baby to come, and with Vesta and Scarlett still in New York,
Velma took up mazes!
She always had them, she bought books of them and she did them over and over.
Velma wondered about raising a child.
She and Marc hadn’t been ready.
Then he went into the Navy.
Sometimes the mazes felt like tracing through the past.
She’d given him her photo.
It was still in his wallet when his parents went through it.
