"Enos and 1 had agreed not to leavq Laurie alone for a minute if we could help it. And then 1 started thinking about the lab and the possibilities of Die bacteria . . . and I knew if she ever got on to Out—well, 1 knew 1 had to get you away. I didn't give a hoot U she never got caught I just had to take you away. And I never went through such hell as when you thought il was me You did, didn't you?" She flushed. "That's what I wanted to apologize for. That's why,l said I'd eat crow. I can't even explain now—" ' You don't have to. The only thing is, I thought I had you sold and then, 10 minutes later while you were packing, you turned into a terrified rabbit What happened?" "I opened your leather case looking for a toothbrush." "Oh, Ann! Poor baby." * She shivered again at (he recollection and said, "I had a lew pretty bad minutes." "I hid them because I was .scared sick Blanding would flnd them. Enos and I didn't want the law in on it—not until we knew ( what was wrong with her. Know- ,=ng the police were after her •might have —well, might have made it worse than it was. And by themselves none of those things meant anything.

The other was that he merely wanted to visit his brother, Norbert, who lives at Owatonna, 52 miles South of here He accomplished both. Officers were anxious to question lum but flight physicians barred You left (he note on your desk and the Icltei on your bed found it there when we came upstairs the night Tommy died.' * • • CUE moved in his arms. She felt so warm and safe. "But the worst hell has been the things you kept saying while you were delirious. You kept warnine Laurie not to let me in—you— even alter Laurie died you kept screaming for them to keep me away.** 'It was horrible, that delirium." She shuddered. His arm* tightened about net thin shoulders. "And you'll forgive me for trying to convince you you were crazy? It was a hard thing to do but 1 couldn't see any other way." Rush!" She Jerked upright, moved away from him so that she could look Into his face. "Rush you tried to drown me! You upset the canoe-and then when 1 thought you were trying to help me you dragged me under." 'Honest to gosh," he said and his voice was appalled still at the memory, "the things that can happen. Ann, that started out to be a very innocent on the up-and-up canoe trip. Before heaven it was lighted a cigaret for you and—" You leaned forward to hand it ' rne—" she said. "And got stung by a wasp! Did you ever," he demanded indignantly, "get stung by a wasp? On your fanny? it was like getting by a bullet Of course I ei ked. Of. course I upset the anoe.

You got sick so fast you scared me silly. I had to gel help. 1 phoned for Kuos to get the doctor and get there pronto. And Laurie came along. That was just dandy that was," "Well, but if Enos knew"— Her voice was grieved again at the ."ought of Laurie — "why'd be Jiing her?" • • ' "Urlng Laurie? Did you ever succeed in talking Laurie out of something she wanted to do?

Laurie was what he was and there wasn't anything ve could do about it She was ick—that's all—terribly sick That 3 what you have to remember whenever you start—" His voice changed, he drew her close s all over, Ann.
