Don and Dale saw the first patch of sky and emerged from the grove. The sun had gone. The sky was dark, and low clouds ran before the wind. "It's going to storm," Dale said, "shouldn't we turn back?" "Too far," Don said. "It's just about on us. We'd get caught halfway." He still held her hand, and with the other he pointed. "Look, across the field. See that shack? They boil the maple syrup there, ten years hasn't changed that! We can ducK in there until the storm is over. The road runs within a hundred yards ol the sugar bush. We can go back that way." Dale nesitated. "Come on.'" he urged. "It's the only sensible thing to do, unless we want to get wet to the hide." But the rain caught them halfway. Drops light as grace notes tinkling on the dry grass, and then a deluge. They raced through It, heads bent, naif-blinded, nands clasped, and they were thoroughly drenched when they reached the shelter of the wooden shack. "Trusting souls, aren't they?"

At home, when I was a child, 1 always used to run out' aide for a rain bath." She wished, without quite know Ing why, that she had kept the reminiscence to herself. Don said only, "Summer storms don't last long," Pale topk off her shpes »nd went to stand by the window, Water tn dark streams down the panes Ol glar?, and she could not see out. The rain wag a heavy thudding, on the tin ropr. She Jpoked around, and saw Pon wringing out hts shirt »A?rore toe nut U back on, "Or a couple of big Turkish :owels." His voice sounded odd; strained. But nis face was expressionless. After a thoughtful moment, vague- y tinged with apprehension, Dale .urned back to the window, flat- ,ening her hand on the sill. A feeling similar to that she had experienced In the woods, of being lemmed in, pressed upon, came to her. She was trembling in an unreasoning but gathering pull of :ensions. Perhaps she tooa cold, She heard Don moving around: be* ilnd her, and then she heard his steps coming toward her. Once before In her life pale had uiown this shivery, icy sense of footsteps purposeful behind her. She had been walking down the road from the store after dark, and had sensed someone following ler. Her steps had quickened Involuntarily in fugitive panic, and the steps behind her ran, caught up with her. She would never fOr- t her relief at discovering that It was Grandy's old blind mare, strayed from the pasture. Her ?anic had dissolved in mirth and iow, as Don stood behind her, she said laughingly, "Do you think breathing down my neck will dry me off?" But Don didn't answer her laughter, He put his hands on her shoulders. "Dale," he said, still in that curiously strained voice, unlike the usual one, almost harsh. 'Dale." She swung arpund, so .swiftly that his hands were flung off, but he did not lower his eyelids arid Dale saw what ,was In hia eyes. He smiled faintly., "Why are you so surprised ?" He held her ishoulf ders again, with gentleness, yet with urgency, too. "Why,,Pale?" Words clogged 1 }" her throat Her thoughts whirled In disorder around one fixed ax's, Pon. Of all people, jppn, "I want you, Dale," he was say' ing. "I want you very much. And 1 think—perhaps you want me, Don't you?" He was gazing down at her, holding her eyes, drawing her closer against her will. With an effort, she held her bpdy rigid, and then she twisted free of his hands, There was perception In Pen's eyes. "What's the matter. Pale?" "No," she said, "tfp,* She Steady, now. Pon,, <wbm. 9h? thought her bulwark. Don, solid, the supposedly dependable. If not Don, yjen whw fifluW she trust ? Unless , . .

"The rain has stopped," she -said. "Shall we go?" "For Pete's sake, Dale," he burst out, "try to understand." She looked directly at him, her eyes blazing with her contempt. 'But 1 do," she said. ('Perfectly." It was Don who reddened now, ind looked away from her before he turned, without another word, and left the shack. Tears blurred Dale's eyes as she pushed her feet back into Andrea's wet loafers. Her hands shook. I shall never hear rain again without remembering this, she thought. A phrase slid into her mind. / shall nev'pr be friends', again, with roses. Some shattering experience In his life had shaped those words In Swinburne's need, and Arniorel Crosland had quoted them — from what bottomland of despair In hers? After a moment or two she moved forward to tho door. She hesitated, reluctant to leave the dark sanctuary of protective walls. She finally drew a deep breath and walked through the door. The violence of the storm had passed, leaving washed verdure In: its iyaHe. The grass was? greener,; the ' maples sparkled wetly in the! doubly brilliant sunlight. A hundred yards off, Don waited for her on tho road. He was smoking a 'cigarct, and she saw him fling the butt into a puddle. If only she needn't see him again! , . .
