Pho. 3-6981 To Walk The Night By William Sloane ©HH, 0«M, XXIII ,/~kNE day in August Jerry was ^ playing in the club tennis tournament. He'd put me out the day before, to my relief, and it was really too hot to do anything. J suggested to Selena, on some impulse or other, that we drive out to Montauk. She agreed readily enough, though I felt that the idea didn't specially appeal to her. For an hour or so we rode in ailence. From time to time I glanced at her, sitting coolly and easily in the corner of the seat opposite me. She was immaculate, in a dull blue, severely simple frock and a wide, plain straw hat with a white ribbon around it. Just looking at her made me feel cool, and in a way Tested. I felt that there was a truce between us, and resolved firmly to do nothing to violate it. After a while, without apparently speaking at me directly, she said, "You remember how once, before Jerry and I were married, you told rne to be good to him?" The recollection made me •quirm a little, but I had to admit it. "So," she said, "1 have tried. (Do you think I have succeeded?" "Yes," I told her. "You did not expect him to be happy after he was married to me?" "Nonsense," I said, but 1 thought it would be hard to keep civil if she went on this way. She was an infuriatingly direct woman. She looked at me through those disturbing violet eyes of hers and said, "You know, I am not accustomed to people like you and Dr. Lister and Jerry. Perhaps sometimes I make mistakes with you." "Yes," I said, feeling that this was getting curiotiser and curi- "Jraun nr point at III. if KU you do. T think you ought to relax a little more." She sighed. "I don't quite know how to do that." Her tone of voice suggested that she would look into it in the near future and learn the technique of relaxing. "Tell me," I said, after a pause, "do you like this part of the world?" When I had asked the question, I had been merely making casual conversation, but a sudden scheme came into my head. "Long Island is a satisfactory place, don't you think?" "Yes," I/admitted. "The north shore, anyway. I like parts of the South, too—the Carolinas and Georgia. Ever been down there?" "No," she said. "I don't believe I should like it." "Well, it's nice," I said, adding menially that she could add a little southern charm to her own character without loss, and feeling distinctly irritated that I hadn't trapped her into some sort of admission about her past life and where she came from. * • • SHE looked at me and smiled. "You're strange, Bark. You ask one question and really want to find out the answer to another one, don't you?" I felt annoyed at her for calling the turn, so exactly. "How do you always know what I'm thinking?" "You give it away," she answered. "How?" I asked her. "Why," she said, and. paused. "I suppose you'd say that if a person went into a room and shouted something loudly, even if he was all alone in the room, he wouldn't be keeping what ho was saying entirely to himself? "Yes, but—" "That's what you do with your mind, Bark," "You mean you can read my mind?" The idM terrified m«. She smiled. "Not the wa? you mean it. But everybody gets some thoughts from the people round them. You know that." 'Well," I began hesitantly. "You all talk incompletely,* she went on. "Listen to what people say to each other sometime. The real conversation isn't wholly in the words. The words are clues to what the person speaking is trying to convey. The rest of it goes direct from one mind to another. You must have noticed that." 'Hmmm." I decided to try her out. "Suppose you tell me, then," [ said, mentally deciding thnt her theory was ridiculous, "what I'm thinking now?" She laughed. "Stop the car. I'll give you a demonstration." I pulled up along the edge of the road. "Now," she said, "you don't believe I'm right. Just sit back a moment and listen." .* • • I LEANED back in the seat and waited. I felt suddenly arid uncomfortably that she was amusing herself at my expense. Gradually I felt that she wanted me to do something. What, I did not know at first, and I looked at her puzzledly. She never smoked, of course, but I thought I might offer her a cigaret. The silence between us was getting uncomfortable. I pulled my case out of my pocket and extended it to her. "Have a cigaret," I said. "Drive ahead," she said. "You know I never smoke, Bark." "Listen," I said. "What was all that about?" She said composedly, "I just asked you for a cigaret without speaking. And you offered me one." I thought about it as we drove along, but I didn't come to any conclusion. "It's a good stunt," I said. "Ycs,' r she said. "I hope you don't pull thfit sort of thing on your poor, defenseless husband." "Oh," she said lightly, "Jerry isn't a bit like you." And with that I had to be cor tent <f * Be CwiUiiMd) FIRS* SHIP The 30-ton sloop Blessing of the Jay, launched in 1631, was the first ship of any importance to be built in the American colonies.
