The Marchese Della- L-asa listened as she asked: "Then isn't it cowardly to run awa7 like this?" He hesitated before answering. "H so," lie said at last, "then I am a coward. I am running iway because 1 have already seen .00 much of destruction. The pattern is familiar to me: an association of things that should remain apart, a disassociation of things that should remain together." He stood for a moment, his expression remote, irtscrtitable. Then, with a visible effort, he thrust aside what had absorbed him, and smiled. "Perhaps the members erf th« oarty are destined to survive," he ;.-™l, "together with a few others her* and there throughout the world. It may be our privilege to lake the first steps into Nirvana. Perhaps, when the catastrophe is over, we will know why it had to happen. Or perhaps we too will perish. We w.-ill find out soon 'You me;m it's going lo happen right away?" "Very soon." "Who found out nbout it?* He shook his head. "Science hns its sleuths," he said. "And secrets are for sate. I advise you to Jet it go at that. I have. Or perhap» H would be better if you were to disbelieve altogether what you have been told. Laugh tifi your sleeve. Do your work. Accept your salary. Enjoy the ride." He reached out suddenly and patted her shoulder. "Pleasant dreams," he said. "You will feel differently tomorrow." Mrs. Malone lay awake most of the night. Just before dawn, exhausted by futile questioning of herself, sh« fell asleep, • » • 'T'HE trailer was in motion when Mrs. Malone awoke. She drew back the curtains and looked out upon the facniliar desert. Her watch said that it was already 8:30. Hurriedly she dressed. In the kitchen she found the Marchese, preparing breakfast. He wore pyjamas made of cream-colored silk, a brown silk rohe and a muffler. His foot were thrust into leather sandals. He explained cheerfully that Mrs. Everson's temper was touchy in the morning. She wasn't fit for human companionship until after she had her coffee, lie alone could make K to suit her taste. It must be black, clear, piping hot. Neither perked, dripped nor boiled, but brought to the exact point of lift and froth, then stirred, set aside. Three tablespoon I uls to the cup— very strong indeed. 'How do you feel this morning?" he asked. Mrs. Malone had to admit she felt better. The familiar smell of coffee and frying bacon. The bright sunlight. The exhilarating sense of forward motion. Her own good health and balance. Al! of these factors served lo erase the terrors of the night before. Mrs. Malone was a woman who enjoyed happiness; she took no pleasure in trivial melancholy or in self-pity. She had known sorrow and had given away to griet, but not for long. Now she bounced from th* depths to the level o< familiar experience, catching hold of the ingenious devices men had contrived to save themselves lime and labor—the coils and pyrex containers and controlled explosions and water jets. "Shall I take th« tray i« Madam?" "H you like. Only doii't niik. conversation." 'No, sir." VIRS. EVERSON was sitting 1TJ Turk-fashion on her bed. She wore a nightgown so transparent that Mrs. Malone was embarrassed. In spite of the ventilators and whirring fans, the narrow room was full of cignret smoke. "Good morning, Madam." "Put the tray here beside me," Mrs. Everson said. Her eyes hovered hungrily over (he dishes. She lifted covers, turned back the folded napkin which enclosed two slices of hot toast. "You'v* forgotten the fruit juice." "The gentleman didn't say—" Mrs. Malone began. "I'm sorry. At once, Madam/' "See that it isn't too cold. And tell the gentleman, as you call him, to gel out o( the kitchen."
