Aih Street To 111 NORTH FIRST STREET * z^lf'ff XXIII W/"ADE DAGGETT spoke. "Any decision is risky, Greg. That's the penalty of being a free man. You have to make your • own decisions. Sometimes I think ;the whole western world is hag- i ridden by fear of the responsibility of freedom, and the east- iern world has .surrendered it [altogether. The Age of Anxiety. ;The Age of Longing. The Age :of SeK-Pity. Those words make .me sick. Stop being so afraid of taking a chance." Greg shook his head. Circumstances were against him. So , was the May night. He found ; himself laughing. They started back to the trailer. After a long pause Greg asked, "Where does Kirby expect to sleep?" "Well, now," Daggett began uncomfortably, "of course, there isn't room for an extra person in the trailer. Kirby can hardly go to a hotel because someone would be sure to spot him. There's no point in that until—" he broke off and Greg tried to see his face in the deepening twilight. The old man was up to something. Daggett, aware of Greg's suspicion, leaned craftily on the younger man's arm, accentuating his helplessness. "And it would be tough on Rupert because he is so afraid that he will be asked for his papers." "So I am elected to find a room for myself somewhere after I get Hannah settled for the night." With shameless hypocrisy Dag- «ctt seized on this. "Since you msscsle-1 it yourself—as long as you don't mind." "Oh, no, I don't mind. Perhaps I can liml a nice homey haystack somewhere nnd cur) up with an apple and a good book." Greg grinned. "You know, it is getting to be n challenge to see just how long I can keep you out of the clink." When the two men returned to the trailer, Rupert and Kirby were playing checkers. Kirby had the indefinable air of a man who had been there all his life, an immovable sort of air. He had been Master of Ceremonies so long that he had instinctively acquired the manner of a host. "Where's H a n n a h?" Daggett asked. Rupert shrugged. "I thought she was walking with you; she went out right after you did. Then she came back a few minutes ago and left a note." Greg ripped open the envelope and handed the letter to Daggett. When the old man had finished reading he gestured with his head and Greg helped him into the bedroom and closed the door. The old man sank down on the side of the bed. "She has gone," he said in consternation. "She w r o t e, 'Thanks so much, Uncle Wade, for all your kindness, but I've imposed on it too long. I'll always be grateful for the most wonderful holiday of my life. Love, Hannah.'" * * • T-TE looked up at Greg.' "She has Rone and she hasn't a penny." His eyes were accusing. "She must have heard what you said about not wanting her to go along." Daggett sat turning the note over and over. He was deeply worried and more upset than he wanted Greg to know. The younger man found himself on the defensive. And he too was worried. Hannah • was a long way from home and friends, a long way from anyone who would lend a helping hand to a stranded girl. "She must be crazy to pull a stunt like this!" Greg exclaimed. "She is still battered by what happened to her at that fair," Daggett said. "She never speaks about it, but being jilted like that shook her icl f - con0dene*. If we were to fail her, if sh« were to feel that we don't value her, it would be the finishing touch to her self-esteem. She has no one else to turn to." • • * r* REG started to speak and ^ closed his mouth. Finally he said, "I'll find her, I'll bring her back." Daggett brightened. "She can't have gone far. And, Greg—make her understand we want her with us. Be sure you make her understand that." "She'll comt back," Greg promised, "if I have to drag her by the hiir of her head." "Look ki the luggage compartment of the ear first. See if her suitcases are still there." But the suitcases were gone. The evening retained much oi the soft warmth of the day and the sky was still opaline. Later on, tt would be very dark for there was no moon. The Hght was kind to the trailer park as a shaded lamp is kind to ao aging Tvojman's (ace, accentuating the eyes, concealing the jagging muscles and the line* that stamp it. There were only two traflert in the park aside from Daggett's. The sudden flare of • match, the glow of a cigaret, punctuated the twilight. And by some miracle no restless »oul had been driven to shatter th« silence with a radio. Somewhere in the fading light a man spokt and a woman answered. Always two. Greg was aware of his loneliness as he had not been awart since adolescence. Now as then it seemed intolerable. Then* must be some Way of breaking through his isolation, of reaching other people, of belonging. Some way that was better than th« evasion of work or the unsub- stantiality of dreams. Greg lighted a cigaret and hastened his pace. He had to find Hannah. At least, he consoled himself, she wouldn't do anything silly. But if sha felt that she should leave them, -vhr hadn't the waited till morning? "I'm sorry, Mrs. Digby, but science still hasn t found a medicine to prevent people from worrying because tomething may be wrong with them that they don't know about!'
