The water changed color as they descended It was azure at the surface, al- terwards emerald, opal, and in among the slowly waving bronze of the sea fans and the darkness of the old coral where the shadows spread, a dirty brown. - Down at that depth was the pahua, the immense dams which 'Kaui dreaded worst Those were six feet in height, three feet wide, and regularly opened their jaws to eat, then swiftly snapped them shut. Unless a man used intense caution a pahua would clamp upon him forever. ' ' There at the maximum depth, working as much by -feel as by sight, they slid the.bight'ot the line over a coral outcrop- ; and started up towards the surface, Kaui again first. He followed the track of their air bubbles. But he wriggled, darted, often swam sidewise aiid only looked down at Naish whe he believed he went too fast for the other. It was hard for Naish, he knew. The captain "didn't have his skill in the water; and every man's temptation was to get rapidly into the canoe. But it had to be. The captain had learned that he must come gradually to the surface or his lungs would collapse and he would die like a squid that the children played with on the beach. , • Kaui greatly admired the captain. The captain was afraid and yet he made each dive, When he broke surface, the force carried him waist-out in the air. His face wis mottled; hli eyei were din- tended and hli llpi were the (r»y of a newly opened clam, He hunkered over the canoe outrluer BY ROBERT CXRSE and lay gasping for many minutes while Kaui talked in a sofl voice with Mata'ora. . * • * MATA'ORA had decided to help to the degree that he kept watch for them in the canoe. Larned had shamed Mata'ora into that in the same way he had brought the crew to work aboard the ship. The day that Naish. had told the crew that • the work should begin, Larned had gone aboard by himself. • He had slacked off on the anchor cables and let the ship fall astern on the wind to her full scope. Then, still alone, he had lowered one of the whale boats and he had gone into the captain's cabin and taken down the mirror and made with it and a box about 15 inches square what Kaui called a titea mata. It was notched on one side, with the glass at the bottom. With he glass part submerged, a man could look well below the sur:ace. Mata'ora was charmed by it. He had heard vaguely that the missionaries in the Western stands gave such things to the leople who dived for pearls -for hem. "Maybe," Mata'ora told Caul, "there's a pearl oyster here." 'Maybe, too," Kaui said without emphasis, "you'd like for the old man to find you a Bible. Then ou'll go to the Western islands and learn to wear pants." ,, .:ut how about you?" Mata'- ora sa'id. "You have already fixed n your head that you are going o go in the ship with the Chrls- laas." 'These aren't like the ones on fangia," Kaui said. "Not at least he captain. And between him nd me l< feti." That meant a mystical relationship stronger han any .friendly bond. Fell might occur between two men, w two women, and it wai guided ' by the fOdrf, could not ot revoked by humans. Mata'ora a> both chief and prlMt oo the (toil was powerless to complain about it. Mata'ora shrugged and scratched the sag of his stomach. "You must be very sure that it is feti," he said. 'T am," Kaui said. His certainty had been established yesterday. He and Naish had been diving late with the ?iin already low on the horizon. They were tired, cold and stiff . when they started the last ascent. He had been a bit careless and without his knowledge he had scratched himself on jagged coral, createo a trail of blood that , had, attracted a shark. The shark struck at him from below on a long tangent. Kaui only saw it after he had noticed the sudden, extreme spurt of Naish's air bubbles. Naish was swimming directly at the shark to save him. Kaui dived back, down, past Naish and, as the shark rolled on its side and the jaws drew for the snapping blow, Naish closed and hung with all his strength to the knife. The whitish belly ripped along the knife to the bones of the tail; The shark doubled, biting at itself in the final agony. Kaui swam above it and kicked desperately and took Naish in hi« arms and broke the surface beside the outrigger before the other sharks arrived in response to MM blood. "WE ' work together," .Naish said. "I need you. So I did what I could." Mata'ora wai intently listen- Ing, trying to understand ' the English words, and Kaui said nothing more. But on the atoll he walked In the dusk to sit down next to Naish at his house. There were several objects on a taps mat before Naish and Kaui recognized a chronometef, « sextant, charts and navigation books and the gold-cased watch Naiih wound every day. "You make ready for the voyage," he said. 'These are for the navigation, hey, captain?" ' "Yes;" Naish said, and looked tecnly up at him. "I'm checking. hem. But after today, Kaui, I hink you should call me by my first name a* a friend. It'« Jered."
