by Gene Stratton-PorterHappy Home in Sunrise Alley "Aw KID, come on! Be square!" "You look out what you say to me." "But ain't you going to keep your word?" "Mickey, do you want your head busted?" "Naw! But I did your work so you could loaf; now I want the pay you promised me." "Let's see you get it! Better take it from me, hadn't you?" "You're twice my size; you know I can't, Jimmy!" "Then you know it too, don't you?" "Now look here kid, it's 'cause you're getting so big that folks will be buying quicker of a little fellow like me; so you've laid in the sun all afternoon while I been running my legs about off to sell your papers; and when the last one is gone, I come and pay you what they sold for; now it's up to you to do what you promised." "Why didn't you keep it when you had it?" "'Cause that ain't business! I did what I promised fair and square; I was giving you a chance to be square too." "Oh! Well next time you won't be such a fool!"
