"Time to get up Mollie," Mabel Jones said. * ' Miss Stark yawned' loudly. Too sleepy," she announced. **You can bring my breakfast in here. 1 "Maybe 1 could, but I'm not going* to. Come on and get up." "I won't get up. Too sleepy." "Stay in bed it you like. You wont eat. You're plenty wet! enough to be up and around." "Ill tell! Ill tell him and hell make you do what I say!

The sheep raised their heads ta unison, returned gradually to heir feeding. Bea turned lazily n the direction they had looked and stared directly at Captain Miguel Oak. He stood in a small hollow within 10 feet of her and was returning a heavy automatic to the bolster on his belt which held up stained tan pants, his only article of clothing. He smiled broadly. "Please do not move. From the house you can be seen, while I stay hidden. So. It is you who tend the sheep." 'Good afternoon- Bea said. "I didnVhear you come. You're still barefooted I see.'

Pulling those young' people out of the water tor one thing." "They remembered? It seemed easier to help them while they could still walk away, than to wait until they had to be carried." "Was it you who staked out those fish in the pool?" "Yes. A flne joke wasnt it? The poor dead fish! Four of them half in and half out of the water. And did you notice what kind of fish they were?" "I dont know much about fish." They were Remora or shark- pilot- Remora Remora to be exact. They, fasten themselves to shark with the sucking disc on the top of their heads. Which makes them not only poor fish, but suckers as well. Isn't that funny. Miss Cosgrove?" She shivered. "What a comedian! I'm afraid it was too subtle for me." "Harding knows fish, though," Oak said. "And when the water ran into the pool after I broke the line, he thought that was funny, too, didn't he?" "It didn't seem to amuse him a bit" Bea admitted. "Wait a minute." she said quickly as he started to speaks "There's someone com-' ing this way." "Thank you. But before 1 go, tell me this.
