It asfccd Sally Ann. : "Don'l ask me. All I know is he said it was very important to sny 4 o'clock." "I don't got it. But you sure slip- ported him nobly." • | "I promised. So I stuck by my ipromise. I never like to see any- jbody get in trouble for nothing. Anyway, I ... well, I liked him— [I mean, 1 liked him a lot. But this morning while I was coming out of the dining hall, he walked past jme without saying a word. Just ^walked right past me, as if t was ja—a telephone pole," she said, her [voice suddenly getting louder, [breathless. "But after I thought labout it, I though maybe he really Ihadn't seen me—you know how jsomelimes you go past sflmetiody iand. . . . Well, we were supposed |lo go canoeing at 11, and t was •down there at the dock, and he ididn't even show up!" | She went back- wilh me, drag- iging her feet. "1 know what you're • thinking," she said peevishly. "You jthink it means Uavo did all thak awful thing in the office. Well, Dave wouldn't hurt a flea. I mean, he's a stinker and evcry- • thing, but 1 know him well enough to know he wouldn't do that." I kept going at a good clip, and Sally Ann bumbled along after me "You're just as bad as the rest Lot them," she bleated. "I never saw a man yet who was worth wasting a page of my diary on All of you—selfish, sneaking . . just trying to see what you can grab ancl get away wilh. I want you to know"—she had worked up to a trot now to keep up with m "the only reason I'd ever want lo marry a man—the only reason—is - my name. 1 love Sally Ann, but J ont want to go through mj- whole! ife with Prushnick at the end." It was silly to run into Midgt Burnett as we came out of Honeymoon Lane. It was sillier to be embarrascd by it "Uh, uh, now ve're both compromised," said Sally Ann behind me. Midge was landing <ip on the top of the slope, bidding her eyes against the afternoon sun and scanning the )eoplc in the water and along the )ank. , As we came out below her ind to her right. Midge's head urned, her eyes caught me, caught me again in a double-take. "Danl" icr voice leaped urgently. She started on the run toward me. Three or four stepi and she stopped. The realization that Sally Ann ,was with me seemed to wash over Midge's face. Remarkably, the flare of-her eyes faded, her eager lips subsided. She turned. She walked swiftly up the slope. • » • T LET her go. If she was a cra?,y - kid, ridiculously sensitive, devastated by the slightest rebuff, annihilated by jealousy, it wasn't my fault, it was the fault of Die stupid, unseeing parents who had brought her tip. Let them worry about it. ... ,1 ran up the hill after her. I caught her arm. "What's it all about now, xvhat's it all about?" 1 said roughly. "You started lo say something. Say it!" She jerked her arm away 'Never mind. Don't let me interrupt your—" "She'll wait. Now talk. Or shu' up—do whatever you want." Her rounded litlle face swung around, at me, her lips apart—she couldn't hold her story even i she wanted to. "Tell me—wha. was he doing—that investigator typing on those typewriters up the. . . ." "Trying lo find out if a certai.. document was typed on.those BU- nmes. WhyT" "Lislen: While he was In there, just sort of walked in ... to write a letter . . . and I noticed hat fellow Dave Fields watching lim from the halt. Then all of a ;udden, Fields hurried down the iteps. So I went lo the window to iee what was up," "Yes?" "Don't interrupt! Listen: Just a !ew minutes ago, I saw him sneak iround the back o( the recreation hall with a suitcase and out the driveway, and a car that looked ike one of those Slroudsburg taxis came along and he got in." . "No kidding!" "Yes! And you're such » wnart aleck, I could strangle you." • • • "ATIDGE, you're a sweetheart." 1 x I scooped up her arm and liauied her on the gallop to tht maintenance building. I ran up the steps to the guard, silting Inside the door. "Where's Healey?" "Down trfere In one of those cab-ns." He pointed toward the men's row. "Hurry," Midge called out. "You want him to get away?" "Go tell him Dave Fields has scrammed. He's heading for a bu* or train station. We're going after him." "Which one's Dave Fields?" "Just tell him. Make if quick!" Midge was already In Ihe station wagon. I jumped in behind the wheel, kicked the starter, and went scorching across the cinders to- ward'the road. "I'm going with you only because 1 want to see the end of this thing I slarlcd," Midge said. "No other reason." "Of course." "Personally I hate you." "Well, don't brag about It— you're the third one in line with that crack today."
