Bea scratched with her fingers in the loose sand on the floor of the side cave. She found many carelessly buried leather sacks. She picked one up. It was heavy and gave out the muted clink of metal. A faint sound made her crouch, drop the flash. The thrown rock, which would have crushed her skull, clattered from the cave wall instead. She faced the person who meant to kill her. "I should have known," Bea said. She talked quickly, shifted her weight, got a firmer frip on the gold bag she still held. "I should have known from the moment you told me "he had a little farm and a home and I bad thtm through him/ That was the only way you'd learned to get the things, possessions, you wanted most in 1U*.

You can't save yourself." Bea picked that split second' to throw the heavy bag o< gold into Mabel Jones' face. TITABEL JOKES threw up a a * hand too late to ward off the heavy leather bag. She staggered baok, out into the main part of the cave. Bea snatche* up the Bash- light, hurried to follow up her momentary advantage. She used the flash to knock aside the first grab of Mabel's long arms. She swung it again against the side of the woman's head and Mabel went to her knees. Bea moved forward cautiously. "You can't get away, Mabel. Why not give up?" Mabel said dispiritedly, "Yes. I suppose you're right. But the others would mis* me th» time. I couldn't leave my drew to be seen this time, could I?

She kicked out again. Mabel grunted, pulled herself to her knees, came closer, hands outstretched. Bea swung the lighl again. This time the force of the blow jolted it from her grasp. It rolled across the floor of the cave, spearing its beam crazily on floor and rock sides. Mabel Jones caught Bea's wrists, flea continued the movement, rammed her head against the blur oi Mabel's face. JJEA felt the smooth steep slope of the cave floor beneath her now. She lay motionless, listening to a soft sliding sound. Once again her wrists were gripped in strong .fingers. She (elt the strain of Mabel Jones's weight. She used her knees to brace on the smooth stone. The forward movement stopped. "We're going to slide Into the water." Mabel whispered huskily. "The crushing rock." "Don't move!" Bea cautioned. "Maybe 1 can hold you until help ' comes." "What help for meT" Mabel asked. Light at the cave entrance was obstructed. "Miss Cosgrove? Mrs. Jones? Where are you?" "Hurry." Bea called. "There'l flashlight on the floor. Hurryl We're sliding!" She heard Henry Harding's sharp exclamation, a flurry of steps and then the beam of the flash shone on them. 'Get out of my way!" Nona McGuire said shrilly "Don't just stand there! Bo something!" The flashlight beam wavered. "Let go of me!" Nona cried. "If you won't help save them I will! Let go o€ me! They're going to slide!" "Walt," Harding ordered. He focused the light again, directly on Mabel's face. The woman released the hold on one at Bea'i wrists, used the hand to shade her eye». Bea clawed at the smooth rock. trym» to get a handhold. She felt tn* slip of smooth stone beneath he». Another few inches and mome turn would carry them down. "Mabel Jones." Hardinz said.
