FRANK AND BEN."Is your mother at home, Frank?" asked a soft voice.Frank Hunter was stretched on the lawn in a careless posture, but looked up quickly as the question fell upon his ear. A man of middle height and middle age was looking at him from the other side of the gate.Frank rose from his grassy couch and answered coldly:"Yes, sir; I believe so. I will go in and see.""Oh, don't trouble yourself, my young friend," said Mr. Craven, opening the gate and advancing toward the door with a brisk step. "I will ring the bell; I want to see your mother on a little business."[6]"Seems to me he has a good deal of business with mother," Frank said to himself. "There's something about the man I don't like, though he always treats me well enough. Perhaps it's his looks.""How are you, Frank?"Frank looked around, and saw his particular friend, Ben Cameron, just entering the gate."Tip-top, Ben," he answered, cordially. "I'm glad you've come.""I'm glad to hear it; I thought you might be engaged.""Engaged? What do you mean, Ben?" asked Frank, with a puzzled expression."Engaged in entertaining your future step-father," said Ben, laughing."My future step-father!" returned Frank, quickly; "you are speaking in riddles, Ben.""Oh! well, if I must speak out, I saw Mr. Craven ahead of me.""Mr. Craven! Well, what if you did?""Why, Frank, you must know the cause of his attentions to your mother.""Ben," said Frank, his face flushing with anger, "you are my friend, [7]but I don't want even you to hint at such a thing as that.""Have I displeased you, Frank?""No, no; I won't think of it any more.""I am afraid, Frank, you will have to think of it more," said his companion, gravely."You surely don't mean, Ben, that you have the least idea that my mother would marry such a man as that?"
