The old patterns and categories seemed to be in order. But she was restless and uneasy. At first she tried to reason her- s^lt into normal drowsiness. But all the hobgoblins of the past four years howled through her thoughts. The words: "One world, or none." The terrifying cartoons. The sane, calm voices over the air speaking of the issue which would determine man's survival. The Great Change on that day when the first Bomb fell, when the illusion of safety p«rUhed. together with thousands of Japanese civilians. The shock of realization: maybe our turn will be next. And the sense of Power, but an aversion to using it. Yet there the problem wai: kill or be killed. The stench of nell was in the uranium piles, Mrs. Malone sat straight up In bed. She thought: "I'm going nuts! I've got to gel out of here and go back to the city and people who have some sense. That woman!" She threw back the bed coverings, got to her feet and began hastily to dress. The cubicle seemed suddenly too small. Like a prison. Mrs. Malone pinned her heavy braided hair into place, packed the few things she had out, jammed her hat down on her head and snatched up her conC • • • 'TMIE far door of the kitchen stood open and thp cntryway beyond was illumined by a tube of blue light. Mrs. Malone could hear voices in the salon, and peering al her wrist watch in the blue gloom, saw that it was after midnight Cautiously she hunted for the door, which she remembered when closed se*med part of the metal wall. An instrument panel offered & possibility of escape. She took a chance and turned one of the knobs. Instantly the silver screen separating the entry way from the mam compartment folded back. Mrs. Everson and the Marchese Dellacasa were playing gin rummy. They glanced up, startled, at Mrs Malone. Then Mrs. Everson spoke in her dark voice. "You're trying to run away, aren't you?" she said. "Yes." "Come here." "Please let me go." Mrs. Malone pleaded. "Please open the door and let m* go. I'll hitch-hik* back to LXM Angeles." "Come here," Mrs. Everson repealed. Mrs. Malone took a few steps forward as the Marchese Dellacasa rose politely and faced her He was a man. of medium height, thin with a worn, lined face and (Icep- liclded eyes. His expression was rernole. yet gentle and somehow friendly Mrs- Ma lone, who was accustomed la judging strangers, liked him at once. Since she hadn't expected to, she was thrown off balance. She returned his smile nervously and waited for Mrs Everson to speak. "Has Rudy lold you why I'm making this trip?" "Yes. That's why I've changed my mind about the job." "You're a fool. With me, you have a chance to live through an atomic blast that will destroy most of the world and most of its inhabitants." • » • A/TRS. MA1.ONE searched her mind (or a reply. Al Rrsl nothing came. Then, with a flash ot inspiration, she explained that she didn't reel worthy—she'd bt happier to perish with the olhers. Mrs. Everson made an imperative gesture with her long, painted hand. "Angclo," she snid to the Mar- chesc, "persuade her. After all, we can't do wUliout a cook!" The Marchese smiled again. Gently, very gently he put his hand on Mrs, Mplone's arm, turned her about, and urged her across Hie entry and the kitchen to her room. There he took the suitcase and placed it on a chair, hung up her cont and even removed her hat. "Now." he said, "get a good night's ilecp. . . You are quite safe, I assure you." Mrs. Malone tried again to mak« sense. Trembling she sat on th« bed; she felt weak and, somehow, defeated. "Is it true, sir, what she says?" "1 have no choice," the Marchese saitj, "but to believe it is."
