Krer- XVII : A FTER a moment Mrs, Ma Lane replied to Mrs. Kveison: "No, I don't exactly hate you, either. I just can't understand you. We're all in this together, but you treat the rest of us like dirt. You're no different . . ." "But 1 am," Mrs. Everson interrupted. 1 She turned her bfue eyes briefly on Mrs. Maloiie's troubled face, "Listen, you silly creature. Try to think hi my terms for a minute Try to see a little way into the future, Ii the United States is victorious, consider the opportunities for those who manage lo survive, and are prepared. Well, have considered the opportunities And I am prepared." j She broke off, turned abruptly • away, stalked across to the steps and disappeared into the trailer. "So that's it," Mrs. Malone thought. A cold ' certainty ran along tier nerves. "She's like the dictators. She sees her chance. After the explosion, men will be weak. She'll walk over them to power," Then, sharp and terrifying as • 1 (he slice of a siee) blade, the vords: "If America is victorious." 'hon it" was war. The scientists nd the government knew. A sud- !en wave of horror swept over her. **Oh. God . . ." she prayed. But her thoughts were in chaos. Ihe could not formulate her plea. nslead. with a helpless and imploring gesture, she looked up at he sky, as if she might .signal the Omnipotent. The great arch of dawn-emptinesc gave back no fiN th* far rim of th* earth. • sliver of sun appeared, im- jerceptibly lifted. Birds began lo .witter, A small animal scurried ihrough the brush. And far down the mountain, on the farthermost coil, a car appeared—• small, climbing speck that vanished behind a buttress, emerged two coils above, disappeared and reappeared again. Mrs. Malone watched and waited. Presently, she could hear the laboring engine and, occasionally, the squawk of the horri. Then abruptly and noisily, the car topped the grade. The driver, confronted by the phenomenon of the gleaming caravan, put. on the brakes and stalled. In the old car Mrs. Malone saw an opportunity to escape. The driver would give her a lift somewhere, anywhere. As Mrs. Malone approached tin astonished m;m, she saw that he was a forest ranger. "What in thunder's this?" hi demanded. "Looks like the Supe: Chief. How in thunder did H eve get here?" It was Mrs. Miilone's intcntioi to say: "Never mind now. ['11 ex plain later. Take rne with you. Bui in that instant Rudy's word came lo her: "I'm not sure, I wis I were," Instead, she smiled at the range '.id sa i d T ' '\V e'r« j i tsi ness we took the wrong road ic dark last night. How's the ade on this side?" "Okay," he said cheerfully. He fought with the starter and ie little car shivered in response. "Take it easy," he shouted. Turn left at the foot of the pass. rom there on you'll be on • aved road lo the main highway, "Thanks." Mrs. Malone said. She watched him dip over the rest and disappear. Then sh* vent into the trailer ind put th« offee on to boil, II was too late to escape now. 'usl as Mrs. Malone hnd failed to iei away from Mrs. Everson on irevious occasions, she knew sh« ia<I failed again. She would slay m now with the trailer caravan ill the end. A LL that morning Rudy and Vic~ tor slept, but at noon the trailers were under way again, cau- ioualy descending. Most of Ihe inie Mrs. Malone's heart was in ler mouth. But they made it, and 'or the balance of the day bored Northeastward through wild and empty country. The next day, following a narrow, poorly paved road, they seemed to turn west again. At noon they stopped to rest and tq eat, then pushed on. They deloured and zigzagged an erratic course past gianl stone monoliths, dipped into valleys, ran beUveen cliffs that leaned forward and from whose remote ledges glacial water dripped. They skirted small lakes and crossed bridges that swayed dangerously beneath the great weight of the machines, Mrs. Malone had ceased to question or protest or even to examine her drmbls and scruples. She told herself wearily that U wa* loo much for her. Lei the thing work itself out.
