I Tim (nld them about in short, panicky gi D.TIl tints. irn her of the dnni; "\\'f sot lo get out of town. Now. Before thoy come out here. I've <rot a brother in Detroit. He's got room for you. You can stay there till they catch them." Clair took him to the kitchen and poured whisky into him. Just The grinned, two mugs and all this We got a patrol car half • with two men and Tim?" THE young police patrolman who had been assigned to guard Clair seemed surprised when j Tim left. Tim managed to con-; wouldn't be mollified. He begged. I Me shouted. He drowned Clair s common sense in a lood of rhel- She had to try it, for Tim be given a chance to regain the courage she knew he once had. This man had given A] and her 10 years of his life. She co~ !d risk a litile to give him back the rest of it, to make what remair'-d worth living. But first she had to know his secret, fearful as it might be. "That money for the school." she said, "there wasn't anybody else in with you. was there?" He shook his head dumbly. "Why did you do it. Tim?" He shook his head "gain. "I .know it's something that happened over there'. Wasn't it?" Tim nodded. "Can you tell me what it was, lomnl j.o un . Take it easy." pulped another drink but ceal his fear from the officer, but he was shaking as the cab drew up before a hotel downtown. Tim started to pay the driver when he saw a short, dark, gorilla-like figure at the hotel entrance. It was Dan Traskis. Dan looked across the sidewalk into Tim Rogers' eyes. Tim turned to the driver. "Qi'ick. he whispered. "Turn around and go back to Richmond Heights!" He shoved a bill into the surprised driver's hand. "Forget something?" ."Yes," Tim stammered. "Hurry!' The car lurched forward and Tim fell backward into the seat in a half-faint. No car followed. Tim watched closely and made sure of that. At Glair's house, Tim threw a $10 bill to the driver and dismissed him. He rushed up to the front door in the moonlifiht and rang the doorbell furiously. The house was dark. A gruff voice called out: "Who is it?" Something moved behind the glass door as Tim shouted his name. They let him in—the patrolman in his trousers and undershirt, barefooted, nnd Clair, in a negligee, her thick brown hair in a nek oric. He told her the police would capture the Traskises whether she stayed in Cleveland or not. He told her she was endangering her grandfather by remaining in his house. He grew more and more frightened as he raced on, not moving her, until he began to blubber. She motioned to the patrolman to leave the room. She came to Tim sitting head down on his hands at the kitchen table and put her hands on his huge shoulders. Tim's trembling subsided at last. "I'm sorry." Tim shook his head. Then suddenly he took her by the shoulders. His iron grasp hurt her but she didn't notice. "The war made all of us do cruel things. Never ask me again what I did." He let her go. When the numbness left her shoulders, sha walked away from him to the window. The blinds were down. Turning out the light so he couldn't see her fare, she asked softly in the darkness: "You killed him, didn't you?" The pause before he spoke was so long she thought he hadn't heard her. Then his words came to her, hushed and sad: "What happened was so terrible I'll never be able to talk about it so long as I live. Even if I could, it wouldn't help. Let . . Al once said if you live with it be, Clair. It's over." something long enough you'll learn how to get along with it. Have you Tim?" "Yes tried everything, except jumping off a bridge. And so far I've been too scared to do that" THERE was Clair watch*! frightened a long silence him—the short, man, sitting hunched in her grandfather's kitchen, weeping because he was a coward and because he knew ho couldn't stop being a coward, and suddenly she knew what she must do. She and Sharon would he taking a chance. But she could end it when tht game became too dangerous. AND she turned on the light and whirled on him with savage fury, her brown eyes blazing, her breasts heaving, the color glowing in her cheeks and the blood pounding in her temples. "For you it's over—and forgotten! Rut not for me! Not for me, Tim! For 10 years I've wanted to know what really happened to Al. I never believed he died in combat. I have a right to know, Tim. I demand to know!" He shook his head. "I love you. Clair. I can't hurt you any more. Help me. Don't make it worse for me."
