W, wiahc* to «r'v« «p n Job with • future for a Job wllh R prrwcnt, and he goex to »ee Wade Dan- IC*lt. who answered hi* M«l. Gre-if eonfr««r* lhal working for •in ntepfnlhtr Inn't Much a hnrt Job. b»i he want* Homctblnn; h« necntJi to be mlttnlnftr. Wndc apparently in n man of meana, but he In paralyzed, an Invalid. • • * IV pREG did not know how to ^ talk to people. Right now he ought to be handing out a smooth line. Bright talk. Well, he just was not a talker and Daggett could take it or leave it. Greg never acknowledged to himself that he did not talk because he was afraid of giving himself away. Literally. Not that he had any particular secrets. It was himself, his own inner life, that he wa£ afraid of sharing—or betraying; he was never sure which. Daggett did not seem to mind the silence. His eyes had lost their defiant look, though they were still not trusting; like a well-mannered watch dog that would give you the benefit of the doubt so long as you behaved. Then Daggelt, who had apparently been thinking about what Greg had said, asked, "Do they treat you right?" "Oh, yes. They are nice people to work for." "Then what is wrong?" the old i man persisted. "Nothing is wrong when you come right down to it," Greg admitted. "For a man of my type I'm sitting pretty." "What is your type?" "Run of the mill. Average. I'm the guy they mean when they talk about 'the man in the street'." "So you are sitting pretty and you don't like it. Why not?" The nurse came in, walking hard on the rubber heels of her flril *' r'-nnk a pill out of n ' box i;ilo ucr scrubbed hands and gave Daggett a glass of water. He swallowed the pill and the water and she marched out again. He wiped his mouth and looked at Greg. "Florence Nightingale crossed with Nick the Blood," he commented. Greg laughed. He felt completely at ease now, as though he had.often before sat in the wing chair across from the old man. It was funny the way people went on talking about making friends. You could not make a friend. You just knew him by some sign you could not explain. "You aren't married. I take it. Engaged? Got a girl?" Greg shook his head. "No danger of that The right one didn't want me and I don't like substitutes, not even a reasonable facsimile." • • • SOMETHING moved behind the ^ old man's eyes. " 'But that was in another country and besides the wench is dead/" he quoted unexpectedly. "Is that why you want to make a change?" "Because of a girl? No, sir." When the old man waited, Greg added slowly, "I suppose 1 don't really believe in it That kind of security, I mean. It's a sort of gamble you make with yourself. I'll stick to this job until I'm 65. Then, if I am still living and conditions are the same and The Bomb has missed me, I'll have food and shelter until I die. All the logic seems to b« on their side. Only," Greg looked up and saw that Daggett was waiting. He rubbed his forehead with hii hand as though trying to stir up his thought*. "Look, suppose you die at 90. You've lost your old-age security — you'vt lost your old age!—and nil tht Hving in gave up for it b«f' '•"" lie was a persistent oia man. "What kind of living?" W I don't know exactly," Greg said. "I'd like to find out what I can do; see what there is to choose from. I'd like to meet new kinds of people and do things I hadn't expected and see how I could handle a situation if I was up against it. I want—** "A glimpse at the other side of the moon," Daggett suggested. He fell silent, sunk so deep in his thoughts that Greg waited, not wanting to disturb him. * • • AT length he stirred, folded nil A plump left hand over th« withered right one. Greg was beginning to recognize the gesture as a signal that the old man was about to speak and that h« instinctively tried to hide his deformity when he knew that b* would be looked at "Well, now," he said, "I've got a kind of proposition. Not what you are looking for, probably. About all I can say is that it would take you away from those graphs. Break up the monotony." Greg was aware that the old man found U hard to describe the job because he was afraid that H would not be good enough. 'The thing is, I'm tired of sitting in this chair. About is sick as you are of figuring how many people eat cornbread. I am tired of having that asceptic bulldozer order, me around like a grenadier with a mother complex. I've got some time left, mayb* a few months, might even stretch it to a year or more, depending on how I livt." Ht hastened on ao that Greg would not have to utter any perfunctory words of sympathy. "So, like you, I am more interested in th* prevent than in the future; and, Hkt you, I'v« b«cn figuring that th«rc must bt something more, something I'vt missed."
