Fried Chicken .., Grapple Dinner -BEER- 7 Days a Week! Blanchard's Cafe Portagcville, Mo. Owned By Stanley Keller XXXIV E again it was morning. Surprisingly she had slept well, soundly. And she wakened lo the smell of coftee perking in the kitchen, (he crackling of fresh logi in the fireplace, the sounds Rush made moving about the kitchen. ' She stretched, under the light covers, yawned and stretched again. She olinked against the bright sunshine that streamed in through th« open windows. She yawned widely and rolled over. | Rush WHS standing in the cfoor- way looking at her. She looked back at him, a straightforward unafraid look, and she thought to herscll. I'm going to pretend 1 don't know. I'm going to pretend everything is just the way 1 want it to be, just the way I thought it was going to be. I'm going to close my eyes and then, when it comes . . . "Good morning, darling," Rush said. "Sleep well?" "Wonderfully," she announced, sitting up. "That coflee smells heavenly." "Bacon and eggs coming right up," he told her and went back into the kitchen. It was difficult for her to believe, as she and Rush took their break- last trays to the big screened porch that overlooked the lake, and sat there eatinj, bacon and eggs and hot toast and hotter coffee, that they were not just a couple of ordinary people, a .nan and wife oil for a few days alone, happy and healthy and enjoying themselves. Part of the difficulty in believing it, she realized, lay in her reluctance to believe evil of Rush; indisputable as the evidence was. every fibre of her being ached to deny it. But wanting something—even as dreadfully as liie wanted to believe Rush— wasn't enough. She couldn't •:iange the facis. JT was almost noon when Rush suggested the canoe ride. 1 They'd just been lazing around all morning, lying O n the hot sand, in their bathing suits, soaking up the sunshine. 'Haven't been canoeing for ages," he said thoughtfully, scowling mlo the sun. "Do you suppose I could manage one?" "Probably," she said tranquilly. Probably you could." If her licnri heat a little faster there was no way he could know it It took him an hour to lug the canoe from the boathouse where it hod been stored, clean it all out, find the backrests, hunt for pillows. All the while he wns getting ready she kept lying on ihe sand thinking to herself. When he's all set 1 won't go. I'll say 1 don't like canoes. I'll say I don't feel up to it- I'll say . . . And then Rush was saying, "O.K., honey, let's go," and she was getting to her feel and walking across the sand to the dock. It was as though she were hypnotized. She said, as he helped her Into the canoe. "Don't go out very far, Rush. 1 don't swim well, you know." He flashed her a strange look. "You're not going swimming, angel puss," he said. "You're going canoeing." It was fun, at Gist, going up the waves with one sweep of the pad- clle, then down them. It was like a midget roller coaster: it didn't take your breath away the way a roller coaster did but it gave you the same gone feeling in the pit of your stomach. Then it happened. The only odd thing about it was that, when it came, it was so unexpected. • • • j^USH said, "Look at the freighter," in the most natural tone in the world and she turned aiclUld . , lighlightcd against the blue sky he looked at Us black hulk for moment and then turned around lo sny something to Rush and fotuid him leaning toward her, anding tier a clgaret. Something as simple as a cigarct. She stretched forward to lake it "id, incredible as it seemed, Hush was suddenly jerking out ol his seat, falling forward. She knew she screamed as he touched her, she knew she didn't conceal the lerror she felt, and then they wer« floundering in the water. In som= small part of tier brain she thought, This is it. Here we go. Except there was something wrong. This was Ihe journey she was to lake alone, Rush wasn't supposed to go with her. Yet here he was, floundering beside her in the water. She wondered about IhnU Bui then she hud time only for fighting. The waves, winch had been fun to ride over, became personal implacable enemies. She went under and gasped and strangled and came back up and saw the canoe Uoating upside down only a short distance away, "Ann! Ann!" It wa« Rush shouting to her but she went under again before she could make out what he was saying. When she came up this time she was winded and choking and close to exhaustion. Beside her ear Rush said, "Annl" She managed to turn in his direction. "Ann, here." He was holding out his arm. She gave a great sob and reached for him. lell Ihe strength of him. felt the great kicking as his feet tread water, churaing it up. "I— you— it wasn't— a n o t h * r minute — " she gasped the words out, "Shul up!" He held her close. "You silly fool, don't you know—" She opened her eyc.= and looked at him. Hij face was lilled with fury. She heard him say. "Oh. ye gods! Ann!" and then slowly, inexorably, tie drew her down under the water.
