"Welt, she claimc to know » safety zone ... a spot protected, somehow, rrom the effects Of radiation. Great gunsl Don't ask me to explain it. I'm no Einstein! "She gave me a lot of gabble about 'the hydrogen chain.' But all I really know is that about six months ago she got what she thought was t'ne real dope, and then made her plans, First of all, she bought and equipped this outfit, I'd hate lo think what it Then she sold all of her property. Nobody, not even her lawyers, knew why. A rich woman's whim, they thought. "Then a month ago, she put ft up to rne and Victor. H was like Noah with the animals: join up. or else. "'When it's over/ she told us, 'only a handful ot human beings will be left alivt. 1 intend to be one of them.' * Mrs. Ma lone sat rigid and erect, her eyes fixed on Rudy's face. The sudden silence was somehow terrifying ... a tangible pressure against the eardrums. She struggled against it, and against the ising tide of panic within her. She must be sensible. "If the scientists really know it's going to happen," she reasoned, "they'll say so. won't they? They'll give us plenty of warning," "Can you imagine the riot it they did? I don't think so." "Then you really believe . . ." Mrs. MaJone began. Rudy shrugged. "I'm here, Victor's here." His eyes flickered in the peculiar way they had. "And the pay," he added, "is .excellent." Again that silence, while nobody moved. "Where is il we're going?" "Don't ask met Mrs. Everson's got the maps. 1 gather she has some idea of discouraging pursuit." * * • OUDY glanced around the narrow room in which they sat. "As you said yourself, she's bringing civilization with her. It's nil here, on wheels. Money. Liquor. Cigarels. Matches. Electricity. Gas, Books. Caviar, Ice- Canned goods, including music— everything from Bach lo EI3ing- ton. Jewels, Medicine. Ourselves, to wait on her. And a companion." "Oh. him." "Yes, him." Rudy smiled, (he flashing, W\- riented smile that stirred so strangely in her memory. But his eyes held a certain disdain. "He's a little easier to explain," he said ironically. "During all those years of waiting Mrs. Evcr- son thought about the gay world of fashion, but she didn't belong lo it. So when she got out of hock, she was awkward and uncertain. Thai's why she hired th« Marchese Qeilacasa: he had experienced everything she had missed." 'For instance?" 'He's • cousin of kings, a man of fashion." 'If he's so important, why did he hire himself out to her?" "He's not so important.," Rudy said. "Not any more. He's a shabby refugee, as penniless a* any tramp. But he remembers his past. And ye gods, but he has the §tft of gab! Mrs. Everson listens and dreams of hcrseJ/ at Monte Carlo, the court of St. James, knocking them cold in a ski-suil at St. MoriU . . ." Rudy broke off with a bitter laugh. * • « T SOUND like a fashion rnaga- zine, don't I? Well, so does he! I've had lo listen to him for hours on end. This mouldy aristocrat, talking about Wallie Windsor and the ancient art of China and gardens and beauty and old manuscripts and ballet dancers and protocol! And while he talks, 1 drive . . ." Hudy ftexed his fingers. "My arms ache from steering that chromium ark toward Ara- ratt" "Then why do you do it?" "The pay is excellent," he reminded her. "Also I'm not sine, I want lo see what comes next," A strange sensation crept through Mrs, Malonc's veins together with the blood of life. It w»s, she again recognized, fear. Suddenly she got up, pushing her chair back. "I think I'll be going to my room," she said \vilh decision. "I've listened lo you, But I'm not believing a word you've said. Not one word!"
