H was roofed by the observatory dome, an Inverted bowl with a jjrcat slot cut out of it where the slide was open. I remember thnt stars were sharply visible through , the opening. The telescope Was mounted on a concrete base in the middle of the room, and its long barrel was aimed up and through the slide in the dome, trained on some star, I suppose. Jn the silence of the room there was a single sound, the ticking of the clockwork motor that revolved Iho dome above .us, moving it with the same tremendous precision as the cnrth itself, spinning on its axis. Between us and the telescope was LeNormand's plain deal worktnblc, with a single hooded, gooseneck student's lamp spilling a little circle of light out on its top. Hack lo us stood a wooden \ .chair, varnished onk, of the sort that universities must buy in " carload lots. LeNormond was ' sitting In that chnir, looking at • us. His arms hung straight from his shoulders, and Ills head was ' so far bent over the top of the ' chairback that it was completely upside down. His eyes were open, looking right at us, but thorn was no expression on his fc-.'c at nil. It was like Iho face . o£ a man asleep. Gl course, he, must have been dea.d, even then, but it still seems to me that the eyes moved once, just as we appeared in the doorway. Fire was growing up his back and around his head like a great vine. Tentacles of it licked the back of t.he cliaJr and wavered to and fro over his body; there was a groat blossom of flame around his head. His face looked out at us between petals of live fire. It was not the kind of fire that a burning log gives, a yellow, lambent glow, ft was not like anything I ever saw before. Clear, while, silent, flickering as fast as a snake's tongue, writhing like streamers of kelp in a tide race, it twined over nnd around and into the body of LcNormand as he sat there. It was a parasite on him, possessing and consuming him, apparently endued with a life of its own and nourished by its host, LcNormand. In the instant we stood, fixed with horror and amazement, in the doorway we began to smell what the fire was doing. , • • • I REMEMBER vaguely that I struggled out of my overcoat. Jerry had leaped to the wall near the stair well, and out of the corner of my eye 1 sa w him snatch down the lire extinguisher there. The blast of heat and the stench, as I got nearer, were terrific. With the coat in front of me, I flung myself at that incandescent figure on the chair. It and I went over together with a crash, As we struck the floor, n tongue of flame wont across my face. Then I was kicking the chair away from me nnd wrapping LcNtiimiiiul in do Ini.ls ol my coat. Something cold and wet hit the back of my head, and I began to choke. "Roll clear," 1 heard Jerry tell me. His voice was cool and urgent. I flung myself to the side and scrambled to my feet. With the fire blanketed by my coat, the room was almost dark. Jerry was standing with spraddled legs, the fire extinguisher in one hand and the nozzle of its short hose in the other. A jet of hissing liquid probed something black and huddled on the .floor. I went down the stairs as fast as I could. I just about got outside in time. When 1 was too exhausted to gag any more I went back up. , When J got back all the light* In the instrument room were on. The place looked impersonal. Jerry had supplemented my coat with his own, but except for that one long, dark blotch on the floor, the overturned chair, and a puddle of stuff from the extinguisher there was no change. "We ought to tell somebody." "Sure, but who?" I asked, "Well, there's the Dean. And there's Prcxy. And we might got a doctor from the infirmary. And the undertaker. And the police, of course." * » * THIS Inst was a new idea to me, but it made sense. Thcre'd have to be some sort of investigation into how LeNormand had come to die, "1 guess we ought lo call the police." Jerry admitted that. But U was n University matter, and we finally agreed the b«t thing to do would be to call Prexy and Vnvo It up to him. He could Handle it nn,v way he wanted. KooLViii?
