Then he heard the voices again, and relief flooded him. It was Pop Hammond and Billy. He moved faster. There fn the lightening dawn he saw the old man fastening a bridle on Joad while little Billy stood nearby. Tim was about to step into the clearing and call out when he heard the old man ask: "Sure you want to do this, sonny?" The small boy looked tiny and frail beside the huge animal. '"Yes. Uncle Jack." "You ain't afraid?" "Yes, Uncle Jack. I'm afraid." "But you still want to go?" "Yes," and his next words stabbed Tim in the heart, "because my daddy's afraid." The old man patted the boy on his thin shoulders and lifted him up to the horse. He strapped him to the horse's back with a long rein by looping it around Billy's waist. "He can't gallop, so just sit tight, Billy," Pop said, "and he'll get you there. Tell Mr. Bostwick to phone the sheriff in Lancaster and to come over here right away." Billy nodded. "I've got it, Uncle Jack," he said. Pop patted the. boy's thin shoulders again. Then he slapped .-the horse. At the words, "Home, boy!" the old horse started oft southward to- wnivl t!ic bald, eroded San Gabriel Mountains. The old man watched the boy on horseback, disappear in the half-light. Then he turned and v:ent oack to the ranch house- Tim didn't call to him. -More ashamed of himself than he hid ever been in his life, he-walked bach to the reservoir, his mind W^irlii-t. n'H r.iiscd himself up Uie laaacr He couldn't face anyone for the time being. He needed time to think. He heard the windows being closed in the house. Pop was getting ready. • • • TIM searched the desert around him as the darkness ebbed, but it was still early. He had a little more time to find the courage he would need. What was at the root of Tim's fear? . Was he born afraid—one of those cursed beings who come into the world under a black cloud, strive fitfully for half a lifetime to break through, then exhausted by the struggle, give up and Uve the rest of their bleak lives on their knees? Or did it come to him gradually and, if so, could he just ns gradually destroy the virus that, had ravaged his life? Then it came to,him—the vision of his older brother Hal, facing him with mocking eyes over the basement work bench on which Tim's beautiful airplane model stood—the product of sij; weeks of hard work. Tim was 12 years old then, but he already outweighed his brother, who at 14 was very tall but very thin. The quarrel had begun over the dinner dishes, for their mother worked. Hal had said Tim should do them instead of spending so much time in the basement with his model. Tim said he'd do them when he got food and ready, which would be after he finished painting his plane. At this Hal ran down to the basement, picked the model up and faced the frightened Tim with a mocking smile. "If you don't do 'em now, I'll break this into bits and pieces." And Tim said, knowing what would happen: "I dare you." * • * HAT.,F-Cr.\" 0 w'-h vc:;«- AO, £* watdied Hal crumple | the tissue-covered balsam plane into matchsticks and torn paper. Then Hal flung it down on the bench. With an animal-like roar Tim leaped at his brother and knocked him to the cement floor. Frightened, Hal got up and ran out of the cellar into the back yard. Tim raced after him. Never before had Tim braved his brother in a fight. Now it was Hal who ran and Tim who pursued. They fought for a few minutes on the grass, and Hal broke away again. Tim caught him, picked him up by the shoulders and waist and flung him with all his strength against the iron laundry pole in the center of the yard. Hal's knee struck the pole and the kneecap shattered. Tim remembered the hospital, his anxious mother, the doctor coming out of the operating room, lowering his mask and saying quietly, "I'm afraid he's going to be lame," and how the shock of what he had done began to change his life. He remembered how he began to fear his great strength, whereas before he used to display it proudly—in football, boxing, hiking, wood chopping, swimming and wrestling. Now he refused to take part in all contact sports. He became moody and sullen. And as the months rolled by and he grew stronger and bigger and Hal seemed to get leaner and shorter in comparison, he began to hate his strength. By the time he finished high school. Tim had grown so fat he could no longer take part in sports even had he wanted to. He knew now why he had let himself go like that—to curb big strength, to punish himself for crippling his brother But he didn't foresee what this fear would also do to his mind. By the time he was halfway through college, Tim was a sick boy— obese, filled with nameless la»^ t incapable of looking down from a building, shooting a gun or even talking to a stranger, especially a girl. He remembered all these yean now with pr : n. Attention: Men of the 461st Wing!
