Maybe I have'a special way of turning my head or using rny hands. . . . She looked at her hands arid saw they were clenched. Maybe I did that this aticvnoon. Maybe I did that the other time. She went back to the other time. She saw an office, richly furnished, saw two hatted ,men with hard eyes, saw another man, hatless, sitting in a leather chair behind an ornate desk. She saw the oilier girl, her: iace' twisted with lury. She heard the vpice again, low and quiet at first,' Ih'eii screanijng: "I'll kill-you. for-this.

She studied the hull, wondering about emergency exits. Beyond her room, al the far end, were the packrooms, enormous cupboards holding tn'nks and old furniture. The lire doer was nt llic front end, then the bath, the telephone/ and her own room. I won't call h'ur up, she said.- They'll keep a record ol the number.
