M»ln St XXI CI.OWI.Y Ami went out of the ' J building, lino Ihe sunshine and everyday bustle of Huron Road. She walked stiffly down the street toward the parking lot where she had left the c'ar. Why Jiail lb;j| awful (tiottglit iibout linos entered her head'? Enos had proved his worth through the years, proved that he was trustworthy, reliable, all the good solid words. Yet because he did an ordinary courteous thing like seeing her on an elevator she suspected him of plotting her denth. She actually wondered if he were in on a scheme to kill her! She made herself go cm to the car. forced hcrsclt to head toward Tophill, toward home. She wnnt- ed, desperately, with every ounce of her body lo turn the car in the opposite direction, to drive in headlong crazy night away from whal w;is thrcalcning her. Ibis nameless lerror that was enjntltiny her. She brought the cur to a stop under a big tree. Her head was aching again, intolerably, painfully, so her thoiiglils were incoherent, confused, chaotic. The p;iin grew into nn immense blur, blotting out everything else. She made a little moaning sound and put her head down on her arms on tile steering wheel. 11 seemed a long time before the pain subsided, before the actual physical hurting retreated. I'll go home now, she thought tiredly. I'll go home now and I'll tell Hush about Tommy and then he'll take cure of everything. Including me. All 1 have to do is gel home ami tell Rush and everything will he all right. . . . She drove up ihe driveway, past Ibc house. ;iii<l into Hie f^iruac. noticing as she went |>ast the orchard that the lab was still lighted brilliantly. She felt relief that Gay and Hush were still working. She'd been gone all afternoon. Longer than she'd expected to bo. The lust pan of her drive had been through dusk. They'd probably be worried about her. wondering where she'd gone, what she was doing. • • • JDUSll was out in the lab, she was sure of it. Why didn't she jnst so to him and gel it over with? Tell him the case she had built up against Tommy and lei him decide what they should do. He'd have to believe her. Nol just because she was his wife but because she had the letter. From the man in Wyoming. The letter that asked for seven dollars and fifty ceuls ior work done on the bridge thai sent Luke to his death, and warned the Bancrofts about the ropes and the danger of exposure. The lelter! Go and get (he letter first! -She entered the )>ou?c through the back door. There was no one in Hie Icitclicii. She didn't stop lo wonder about Iluil then. She felt only relief lhal she didn't have to see anyone. She hurried up the dark back staircase, moving softly, taking care that she should not be heard. But the Idler wasn't in her des c and even though her lingers searched feverishly, shoving things aside with foreign recklessness, she couldn't lind it. It wasn't in her desk or the nighlMand or the drawers of the Heavy bureau. She sot on the tied, messed her bands to her hot checks. The tetter bad to be here in this room! It luid to be!

She slooo in the darkness thai was almost solid, felt apprehension become tangible. Something was wrong here. Dreadfully, horribly wronn- She slood there, quite still and scarcely brcnlhing, waiting, and nothing happened. Then, slowly, she began to relax. She released her breath rnrefuliy, felt out with shaking lingers for the light switch. She drew a deep breath. But where was everyone? Where could they have gone? All ol them—even (he servants? She was in the library searching tor a note, hoping desperately they ha'.', left her a message, when she heard someone coming up on the porch. She slood quite still.
