Mata'- : or» had brought them a cnlabnsl at palm ruin and Naish ha added to H i quart of Medford from ship's itores. "Let's rush," Naiah said. "Looks like there's plenty." "But the rum is gone," Kau: •aid, "and I'm hungry." "Then get along," Naish said "I'd Ilka to sit here a bit longer.' Kaui glanced aside at him "You have come to care for this place, h«y? H 1 have." Naish let his head rest back against the house wall He narrowed bis eyes against the lunset shimmer and with a gesture he had acquired sitting here , b* picked up and released from between his fingers hand fills of th« tint pink coral sand. The breeze touched ha face and ruffled his hair; it was gentle, cool- pmclng upon his body. Beauty could be pain, he thought, and that wat what he felt The opened cooking pits were Incandescent They threw luminous beams upward and outward. ' The people who moved past them to be ted seemed to be afloat in light Out over the lagoon, the sunset had begun to fade. The water was the color of maple leaves affair the first frost, a soft and Delicate, golden yellow veined with russet. It became bronze; and the green of mountain moss. The breakers at the barrier reef no longer shone; k thejr wera pill, »nd dull;, with \rnly Intermittent glowing of phosphorous along the Hanks. Cloud In mass after dark mass rot* to tha smith from the horl- ton, and txhlnd was tha moan. Wind ton the cloud, tent It Into Ions, r<iT8:"l stvins of clmi? ,lhat w«rt iUvar at UM «d«ei. The BY ROBERT CARSJB moon hung clear and "lighted the sea, and suddenly all the clduc was gone away to the West to take the last of the sunset from the sky and the stars were exposed. Blue merged with purple, silver changed to an iridescence that had no name. The Southern Cross was a faint blazon, and the sea, the sky, the entire universe were in one moment brightly yet softly aflame. Naish shook himself and grasped Kaui by the arm. "Very well," he said. "Time we-went and ate." • • • NAISH ate with both hands, greedily, pushing in the food, morsels of the, crisp, black pork rind, then the tender and still very hot meat, with that taros and plantains and pieces of bonito, the flsh dipped in the fermented sauce but hot enough yet to make his fingers smart. Children jostled against him and smeared their greasy fingers on his legs and laughed when he took mote food and kept on steadily eating. He had become completely physical, had abandoned himself to his senses. Tonight, he had thought while walking down the slope with Kaui, let everything jo. From tomorrow on, you'll Save your share of worries. He felt as though magnified a thousand times the moist grains at nd under his feet, and the breeze that dried Ms sweat:and whispered murmurously and sent ils hair across his eyes and napped Ms trousers around hit inkles. His tastt bud( responded a each flavor and mixture, and ils nostrils distended wide to the odors. When he could tit no more, he stroked his stomach In tht local style, waded Into the shadows ind splashed his hand' and free, Phe water wos rHIl n'l"r thi* teat ol tha, food, and ot w*l-l comed it because it dispelled the slight torpor that had come upon him. The dancing was starting, and he was going to dance, too. He stepped in rank among the men as the drum was struck. Kumau, a fat and jolly man and on« of Mata'ora's cousins and next to the chief the fattest man on the atoll, was glaze-eyed yet with food. But he had put new, tightly stretched heads on his drum for the feast, and, as the crowd .yelled, stamped, clapped and called, he pounded forth magnificent rhythm. The girl's name was Taera and she was unmarried, about 17 or 18, one of two sisters, Naish knew. He had spoken to her occasionally, and Weeks back he had asked Kaui her name. She had meant nothing to him as a person then, 'though, and in this moment meant little more. It was just that she was opposite him in the dancing and as he smiled she answered him. • • • SHE approached in the intricacy of the steps and he went to meet her as the other'men did the women oppositt them. Hips, shoulders, hands and feet described the motions, and in his mind was no thought of Phoebe to restrain him. He was part of the night; he flowed with tht flow of life, without any definition of past or future, the present, now, all that mattered. Taera moved from the fire after midnight as It burned down and Kumaua tired. Naish walked behind her. Other couples were along the beach. Taera strode iround them,' out into the lagoon, and he continued his silent pursuit. It wasn't coquetry, he realized; she only wished to bathe. Nalsh-walked back to ih« dancers. Ahead of, him was the nsk of getting the men aboard the ship. Albcmarle Morrow's / eyes were red-rimmed with weeping. "No." ht kept repeating. 'No ship for me. I'm going to bt a South Sea» king. That's Albcmarle." Lamed would have to do tha wk to gel IHe men aboard the ship. (T* Bt C«iU»e4t BILL WALKER RKKON THET (.EETte<lM~»«IH BE FULLV COV£REC> WITH _ W.
