Pho. 3-69S1 XXVII T COULD think of nothing to * say to him. " 'This is the thing my people do not know,' " he quoted slowly and half to himself. Then he turned to me and said, "Bark, I have a hunch that you know something about Selena that I don't. You've got to tell me what it is." There was my promise to Parsons. I could break that and tell him the story of Luella Jamison, but there was no way in which I could see that doing so would help him. Instead, it would simply add another uncertain horror to revolve in his mind. "Listen," I said. "The only thing I know that you don't has nothing to do with you or Selena, except indirectly. It's nothing that will help you in the least, and I gave my word to Parsons that I wouldn't tell anyone about it. He told me because he wanted me to tell him whether it had any connection with the LeNor- mand case, and it didn't and I told him so. That's all there is to that." He shook his head. "All right. You're a stubborn guy when you miikc up your mind. But I want you to promise me one thing." "What is it?" "After you've been out here awhile, I want, you lo think whether you'll (el! me what that thing was. and whether you notice anything else that could help me." I norided. "All right." We climbed into the car again without saying anything more. As he put the car in gear, Jerry said, "And Parsons never found out who killed LcNormand." "Well," I takl, "ta didn't bay* anything to go on. No clues, and no motive, and no witnesses." Jerry drove intently and without looking away from the road. "There were those equations. . . . Remember the sheets of old notepaper on the table?" "Yes." But I couldn't see what they proved. "After all, figures don't lie, let alone murder," Jerry smiled fleelingly. "I've been playing around with those equations. Selena came in the other day and found rrie at it. Like a fool I told her what I was doing. She didn't like it." "Oh," I said. "Why not?" "I dunno, exactly. I suppose it's a piece with the rest—not wanting to have anything to do with the past." * * • SELENA was standing in the doorway to greet us; she was wearing a yellow linen dress and sandals. Her beauty was unchanged, so far as I could see; the sun did not appear to have tanned her bare legs and arms, and her face and hair Were as I had remembered them,.sculptural and perfect. La 'or, when she moved, 1 saw that she was walking once again with the same long, swift stride that she had when we first knew her and before she began to imitate Grace. "Hello, Bark," she said, and held out her /land. 1 took it and told her I was glad lo see her, which was a lie. I think .she knew it. "Well, Bark," said Jerry. "Welcome to our humble home." His voice didn't sound quite natural to me. Inside it was dark and cool; the floor was tiled, and the heavy alii M«m«d to bold th« freshness of the night all through the heat of the day. The room we entered was clearly the living room, with a big fireplace to the left, at the eastern end. It did not have much furniture aside from several Navajo nigs on the floor, a long settle in front of the fireplace, a large table of unpainted wood, and three straight chairs. Jerry opened a door on the far side of the room. "This is your place," he said, and carried my bags in. The room was scarcely more than a cubicle. • • • AFTER I'd washed and sot into some old clothes, Jerry showed me the rest o( the house. Next to my room was a sort of small study, well lined with books, which he told me was where he worked. Behind the study was a large bedroom where Jerry and Selena slcp', with a door opening out of its wjsl wall. The kitchen was in » lean-to shed at the southwesv corner of the house. I wondered what there was about the place that bothered me. It was pleasant enough inside, and done with a simplicity and directness that were agreeable. But as soon as I stepped out ol doors again I saw the reason. The great bulk of the mesa loomed towering and imminent above the. house; incalculable tons of rock and earth seemed almost suspended above its roof; the very scale of that slope above you made you feel like an ant. I don't know how better to give the eflfect than to say that I felt always as If t giant were about to step on th« house and all of us .in it.
