Starred arose, moving aside to make room for them Paula stood uncertainly beside Vivian, Watching Dan being car- Tied away. Vivian lifted her •kirts and started determinedly tefter the men. **He accused me of trying to fsteal his girl," Starrett said, giv- |iog Paula an underbrbw look. "I [wouldn't have a drunk naming |her, no matter what the reason.' He thinks so little of me thai (he starts a fight about me in the [Street, Paula thought. Outrage [and shame flooded over her t but (with it'was uncertainty. It was [not like Dan to do this, but ineither was it like Blaise to tell ia deliberate lie. She looked at "the knot of men who carried Dan across the porch, then at Starrett, an u d d y but triumphant, his «houlders well back, his teeth flashing a white grin in the brown mask. Suddenly Paula realized that she, the reason for the fight, stood here in the street, where all could see her. The tale would spread over all the valley. That didn't matter. Dan did. She climbed the first steps of the saloon porch and found her way blocked by the outlaw, Tex Dar- TOW. The man's black eyes bored into hers and the gleam far back in them was frightening. "Paula," Starrett said, just behind her, "don't go in." She whipped about to see him looking at Darrbw and she gol the full implication of his warning. He came toward her, muddied hand extended. "I'll see you home." Her indecision, her shnme and anscr, suddenly burst through. She shrank back from his hand. "No. No! Don't touch me!" Almost blindly tht descended the steps and stumbled through the muck of the street toward the sanctuary of the lumber yard office. Darrow and Starrett looKed blankly after her. Darrow finally shrugged and turned back toward the saloon door. "A pretty filly ... but flighty." Within the bar, Dan had been stretched out across two of the tables. A wave of sickness swept over Dan and he felt the cold sweat pop out on his forehead. With it came the memory of the fight. He tried to sit up but fell back, dizzy and fainting. Vivian's hand stroked his forehead and cheek. "It's all right, Dan. It's over. Lie still." • * • HE could do nothing else for a long, long time. Finally he had enough control to open his eyes but he knew he dare not move his body for a time. Phil and Vivian still stood close and behind them grouped the curious outlaws. Phil saw that Dan's full senses had returned. He frowned. "Quite a fight you had," he said gruffly. Dan said nothing and Phil's frown deepened. "Neither Paula nor I are pleased, Dan, that she should be the cause of a street brawl." Don quietly looked at him, a 'rown slowly forming, Then the complete falsity of the statement penetrated and he struggled to sit up. Moving carefully and disregarding their protests, he made it, hut clung dizzily to the edge of the table biting his lips ngninst the pain and sickness. Dan shook his heart "Phil, we didn't fight about 3 aula. I think too much of her o do a thing like that." Then he realized that Tex Dar- •ow, Jack Bruhn. Denver and ho others stood watchlnq and istening. He looked down at his muddy hands, the filth on his clothing. He couldn't talk here, not about Paul LI or the real reason for the fight. His jaw set stubbornly and he eased himself to the floor. He had to catch himself from the pain that came when his weight was on his feet. Vivian was instantly at his side, her arm supporting him and he stood a moment, fingers sunk deep m her shoulder whil Phil supported him on the other side. Phil kicked a chair about. "Here. Sit down. Lucky Starrett's knee landed a mite high." "His knee?" Dan asked. "Blaise used his knee?" Phil nodded and Dan sank gratefully into the chair. Vivian stood just behind Phil and she gravely studied Dan. He felt the search of her eyes as though she tried to find the truth of the matter deep within him. Her face was expressionless until a brief second before she turned away. The way her eyes shadowed and the slight quiver of her lips told Dan that she did not believe him. She knew that Paula was the cause of the fight. In these days in Bitter, she had gradually felt the past slip into a haze of forgctfulness and now she knew that Dan Murdock had been the reason. But he loved Paula Preston! • • • IT took some time for Dan to feel that he might be able to move again. Phil gave Dan his arm. They moved slowly to the door and received no more than a few curious glances from the outlaws. The moment they stepped out on the porch, the increasingly cold wind cut at Dan like a knife. The mud had caked on his clothing, each step felt as though he walked encased in boards. The soaked clothing felt coir! and clammy to his body and it was still with some pain thai he managed to descend the steps into the street. Once beyond earshot of the saloon, Dan spoke swiftly. "I've found a way to gel out of our troubles, Phil. 1 was wait- IR for you when the ftght witb Starrett started." (To Be Continued) New! Used! HOUSING PROBLEM?
