She knew that Even though Rush had -aught ner and dr-aprcd her underneath the water she hadn't drowned. The reason she WM so sure of that was that she was in a bed somewhere and when you were dead you didn't lie in beds. Or did you? She couldnl drag her eyelids open enough to see where the bed was but she knew sht was in one; "he could feel the smoothness of Ihe sheets urjder tier fingers, her head was on a Dillow. There were sounds around her. Activity of some sort. She couldn't identify it but it wasn't important. It didn't matter. Nothing mattered. She didn't even care a bit that she was alive . . . She'd just as soon be dead . . . inhale . . . that weight on her chest again . . exhale . . . she tried to move but the effort was too great ... she floated oft on a great wave. She had a wonderful time in the clouds. She rolled from one to another and they were so son, so enveloping. She wondered why she wasn't .ifraid of falling off because she was up so much higher than she'd ever been before but she wasn't afraid at all. That was because she wa* on a crisis. She knew it was a crisis she was on jecause someone had said so They said, "This is the crisis," and then they put out a hand and helped her on it and right away she started tp climb. Up ... up • . - up ... She was going along beautifully on the crisis until the little black cloud had to come along and spoil everything. They weren't bothering Anybody ... not anybody at all ... and then the black cloud Iran smark Into them with a [thump and spilled Ann oft. • • • CHE started to cry. She could leel the tears trickling down her cheeks. The wetness of them unsealed her eyelids and she opened them. She opened her eyes wide. She was in a very dim room and Laurie was there, sitting in a rocker beside her bed. For a minute she thought she was back in her room at Topfull and that it waj Gay sitting there ^o quietly but it wasn't Gay. It was Laurie. And she wasn't at Tophill. she was at the cottage. ^Hi," »he whispered to Laurie. "Ann!" Laurie whispered, too. and she sounded awed as though it were unbelievable Ann's eyes were open, that she had whispered "hi." Laurie leaned forward in her chair very quietly, very carefully, as though she thought Ann might break if you touched her. "Don't talk," she said gravely. "You aren't strong enough to talk." Ann closed her eyes again because holding them open was such an awful effort and there was such a pounding inside her head, such a ringing in her ears. But she managed to smile as she closed her eyes because Laurie was there and she was so glad to see her. She lay still for what was surely a long, long time and then she opened her eyes again and said, "Where—Is Rush?" "He isn't here," Laurie said. He wasn't there. Hush wasn't there. She was still again for another long time and then she said, this time without opening her eyes 'Where—is he?" "He's gone." Laurie said. "Be quiet now. Rest. That's what the doctor says is important now. Ann. You're to lie still and do as you're told and rest." Minutes passed. Hours, it seemed, and Ann said, the ques- tion forced from her, "Where—did he go?" '-auric didn't answer her Maybe slie -tin'l nenrd ncr. Ann opened her eyes again. Laurie's eyes sc like her own. were watching Her. "Wher. did—Rush—go?" she asked painfully. tL A NN. look," Laurie said. "Enos Is asleep over there In Ihe chair. Can you turn vour head enough to see? If you talk you'U wake him and he's terribly tired." OI course she could turn her head. She did and Knos *as there, sprawled out In the big leather ensy chair, his feet on an ottoman. Dear Enos. she thought, faithful Enos. Always there when you need him. Of course she didn't want to wake him. She closed her eyes again and slowly drifted off. And then Laurie wns touching her, waking Her up. Laurie wa! holding out a pill ana a glass of water; Laurie was saying softly, "I'm a fine nurse. 1 am. 1 almost forgot your medicine. All you have to do is swallow this, Ann. ond you can go' to sleep again. For a long, long time. Here, i'll help you," and her firm hands went under the pillow, raising Ann up so that she could lake her medicine. She had Just managed to get her mouth open when, from the doorway, a flat voice said, "All right, Laurie, that's enough! Put it down —PUT IT DOWN, I SAY!" Laurie frozt quite still and the old familiar terror washed over Ann and it was like the suspended action you see sometimes in movies when the camera stops ... "I SAID, PUT IT DOWNI" And then Enos—who wasnt sleeping after all—got up very quietly and came over and got the glass out of Laurie's hand. He tried to get the pill too but Laurie fought like a wildcat and jerked and got away from him and put the pill in her own mouth. Ann thought resentfully. She isn't sick, what right has she to take my medicine? But then she realized suddenly that it was only another dream. And a pretty silly one, too.
