He'? too oia for grownup to ride," Pop replied. "A kid might. The horse belongs to Ned Bostwick. I borrow the horse Joad to pump water from the well into the reservoir when it gets low." "How far is it to the owner's ranch?" "Seven miles, back in th. mountains. Joad knows his way hpme in the dark. If your boy could—" "No," Tim said, "my boy's afraid." "He could have 'em ' phone Lancaster for us—or Ned Bostwick might wanna come down himself. He's a good shot." "No. Billy couldn't do it. Not at night. He can't even ride a horse." "Ail right. Forgot it" The men stayed up late figuring out what to do. Pop drew a map of the grounds, and Tim studied it carefully—the location of the buildings, the paths, the 30,000-galIon reservoir, the pond and even the trees. Once he looked up and said, "Tell me we have no right bringing you into this, Pop. Tell us to get out." And Pop, his brown eyes hard, answered: "Punks who'd hurt a woman can't have much guts. One shot an' you'll see 'em run." No, Tim thought, they won't run. But he didn't say anything. "Besides," Pop wont on, "your dad helped me get this place. Dnne wonders for my arthritis. Marie and I have always wanted to pay you back somehow. Maybe this is how." "All right," Tim Mid, and he wondered how he would find the courage during the night to get f i ;.t dawn, put on his clothes an.; go out to meet three killers. £*rtkr Xi* M 10-foot-high concrete reservoir, the highest structure on the ranch, and was surprised how far down the road he could see in the yellow moonlight. He would stand his watch up there. * * • SITTING outside the ranch house under the stars, listening, Tim Rogers thought over the events of the day. He recalled how much better Lorna nad looked and how his son Billy had seemed to have taken on stature. Tim wondered if, with all the change around him. whether he too might not have changed enough so that he could protect them. And what about Clair? Did he iove Clair, as he thought he did? Then Loma's soft voice found Tim in the dark: "Courage will come to you, Tim, if you'll pray for it." She had followed him outside. "I've never prayed in my life," he told her. "I can't start now," "You must show Billy you're not a coward, Tim," she said. "Billy's changing, Tim. You must help him." "I—Pm afraid." "Billy's whole life may depend on what you do tomorrow morning, Tim." "And mine. 1 * "At this point his life u more important." "I know." "Then you'll fight, Tim?" Angry and frustrated, he almost shouted at her: "I don't knowl" He turned ft way from her, hurt. Suddenly she put her arms around him and kissed him. "You will, Tim. I know you But Tim had no way of knowing what ht would do and didn't answtr. "J wan tfoing to leave," she went on, "after 1 lound you and But I can't. Tim. I can't, because I love you." He moved off with a curt, "Time to relieve Pop." Outside Tim told Pop he would stay up the rest of the night. Pop wanted to leave his shotgun, but Tim said it would be wiser if each kept a wca[>on. Then he mounted the reservoir and sat down on its concrete lip, out of sight of anyone on the ground but with a full view of the road stretching toward Lancaster. • * » IT was cold, as desert nights often are, and the cold of the night seemed to intensify nis misery. Far across Antelope Valley he could see the beacon light of Edwards Air Base flashing. A bobcat screamed in the distance. The owl hooted again. The palm leaves nislled softly around him. Far above, the Milky Way poured a brilliant stream of glittering diamonds across the desert sky. He smelled th« damp palms, the freshly watered grass, the mint^nd wisteria on the side of the house nearest him. Below him the ranch house slept in the night. On the lip of the reservoir, his heart as cold and numb as the concrete on which he sat, Tim tried to pray for the courage with which to face the dawn. "I can run," he told himself, ''and they'll do nothing to me. I've been running all my life. This will be nothing n«w. Or I can stay and do nothing, and they won't hurt me or my family and maybe not even Sharon." But a vision of the lovely Clair rose before him and he shuddered. "No," he went on, "I don't want to live on those terms." And behind and above her he saw in his mind's eye the figure of Al Kolinsky towering over him in the shellhole and the shock of Al's face when the bullet from Tim's rifle crashed into his chest. Tim couldn't run—not any more. And he couldn't stay and do nothing. A shadow broke away from the trees below him. He tensed, his gun ready. A voice called out, "Tim!" It was Lorna.
