The next morning Harry and Juanita drive in to apologize. Carol tells them that they owe Erik an apology. Harry asserts that Erik was trying to run things and was putting on airs. He adds that he didn't like him. Carol points out that he himself had asked Erik to organize the match. Juanita agrees with Carol and tells Harry that he should apologize to Erik. She also asks Carol if she liked Erik very much. Carol tells her that he had worked so hard for it and it would be a shame not to be nice to him. Juanita keeps watching Carol.

Carol wants to meet Erik but has no excuse to go to the shop. When she sees Nat Hicks in the pool parlor she goes to the shop. She asks him if he would make a sports suit for her. He says he will never be her tailor and shows her the sketch of the frock that he had designed. She considers it to be original. He informs her that he had read through Latin grammar and was now reading Caesar. He tells her that she is her teacher. She feels frightened by his voice. She comments about the drab surroundings. He tells that he had learnt to look within. On her way back home, Carol remembers her father. Slowly the people of Gopher Prairie start liking Erik. Dave tells Harry that Erik could tell where Ukraine was. Maud Dyer also agrees that he is a smart boy. Carol dreams of Erik and feels that he fitted the picture of the artist perfectly.


Carol complains that she doesn't have enough clothes to wear. Kennicott tells her that she could buy all the clothes she needed when they go to the city. Carol goes to the new dressmaker Mrs. Swiftwait, because she had made an organdy frock and a hat to match for Rita Gould. She does not find any thing that she liked but comes away with the impression that Mrs. Swiftwait had ridiculous airs. She wonders if she looked as ridiculous as Mrs. Swiftwait. She looks at herself in the mirror and feels that she looks like a small town genteel woman. She wonders what Erik found in her. She also feels that she looked more graceful than Fern Mulliner. She also feels sorry for herself for having to convince herself that she is as beautiful as she was before.
