31. Over The TailGate

Over the tailgate he went,  as his father mounted on the seat.  The older brother was already there.  He struck the mules with two blows with the willow.  With the same quality which in later years would cause people to overrun the engine before putting a motor car into motion.  Then Striking and reining back in the same movement.  The wagon went on,  the store with its crowd of watching men dropped behind;  a curve in the road hid it.  Forever he though.  He has stopped his self .  His mother touched his back.

She asked him if it hurt?  He told her no and to let it be.  But she told him to wipe the blood off before it dried.  He told her he would wash later on.  As the wagon went on he didn't know where they were going.  He would not ask.  But it would be somewhere.  Always a house waiting for them.  His father had already made a crop at one of the places.  He had a wolf independence and courage which impressed people.  

At night they camped in a row of trees and there was a spring nearby.  They had a fire as the nights were cold.  The older boy complained because the fire was not bigger.  They hid from all men that they did not know.  He had seen blazes all his life.  He ate supper beside it and then his father called him.  Once more he followed him up the hill to the road that was sparkling with stars.  His father slapped him across the face.  He told him you are getting to be a man so act like one.  

You stick to your own kind or you will not have no blood to stick to.  He said nothing nor did he cry.  His father told him ""answer me",  He answered and said "yes".  Then they went to bed.
