He hesitated, glanced at the sheriff and then back at me. I backed to the archway. "Good Bight, Sheriff," 1 called. , , .

He dammed the phont down, itarted around the bar tripped over a stool and sprawl* to the floor. Roy run to help bin up. 1 turned and walked out. I drove at a sedate 40 mlltt M hour, txpactini to b»ar UM a siren behind me. But Ten miles from Beech Tree here was an intersection_wiierE- he highway crossed another It was a four-way stop, with waning red blinkers and big yellow- and-black signs. I braked at the white line and dutifully looked both ways. It was then that the window plintered beside my face and omething fire-hot caressed the back of my neck. In shock and ear I jolted forward against the whee and pressed the gas pedal. Che automatic shift loomed me across the intersection. 1 swung off the road, slammed the brake pedal and stopped on hard sand jeneath a towering pine tree I shut off the motor. I put my fingers to the back of my neck, felt he warm wetness and brought ihem away, bloody under the dash light I stared dumbly for a moment, and then got out a handkerchief, wiped my fingers and then pressed it against the back ot my neck. A car went past me, coming up from Steel City in the valley below. It slewed and stopped at the intersection and then roared on. A woman's laughter drifted back to roe on the eool June breeie. Then silence, an* suddenly I was afraid of the night and the black hills around me. I tucked the handkerchief beneath the back of my shirt collar, feeling the warn dampness, and I drove fait down into, the dark valley. • • • .There was a light in Dr. Ordway Vincetti's office. tlenmlng murkily behind dusty panes. Apparently he was still up. 1 had met him and hla combination nurse and secretary In Aprl when I'd been working on another CMC which, had also involved a widow. He was the only doctor I knew In Steel City. rappeij softly on the door, in a moment it was opened by the nurse. "The doctor is out What do you—?" She recognized me then. "Oh, Mr. Bennett Come in." She stepped aside. Through an open door 1 saw the doctor's office. A light burned on the desk. Behind me the woman closed the door. "What's the matter with your neck?" she asked. "Bullet nicked me," I said, turning to face her. 1 touched the handkerchief tucked beneath the back of my shirt collar. "Maybe you'd better look at this for me?" "Of course. Come in here." 1 followed her Into the office and at by the desk in a chair she ndieated. With gentle fingers she emoved the bloody handker- hief. "Close," she murmured. Just missed the spine." • • • I WENT to-the hotel. Before went up to my room I took the utopsy release signed by Alice Osborn and placed it, envelope ind all, in a hotel envelope which sealed and stamped, addressed to Austin O'Connor and marked PERSONAL. As I dropped it into he lobby mall box I thought ileakly that it was something I hould have done many hour* earlier. In the morning my neck waa stiff and throbbed dully. 1 swallowed two of the green capsulea Dr. Vincetti's nurse had given me and took a bath in the tub. I put on a yellow polo shirt, gray flannel slacks and a gray tweed . scket and left the room. My car was ready. I left IM garage. Two miles from the las* .raffle light I turned off the highway and stopped on a side road, With the blade of a pocket knife I dug Into the hole la the- teat and after a few probei I struck the chunk ot lead and dug it out I gazed at it in my palm and I knew that It was not a .11 caliber fired from a kid's target gun. A .11 can kill, of course, if « hits the right spot, as Alice Of- born very well knew, If (he knew anything.
