Ph. 3-8962 Moultrle & B'dway To Walk The Night By William Sloane XXXV T)R. LISTER looked at me with •^ pity openly in his eyes. "This ii all delusion, Bark. Your mind is playing tricks on you. There's no sense to this notion of yours, •nd no evidence for it." "Yes, there is," I told him. "There's one piece of evidence. That is what .she said to Jerry in Bermuda, lying beside him in the moonlight. She said, 'This is what my people do not know.' Her mind was learning from her body. It takes mind and body both to make a soul. Living with Jerry taught her something of what it means to be a human being." "Then why should she have let him kill himself?" "You must see that now. Jerry never slopped wondering about LeNormand's death.. His love for Selena made him all Die more anxious to find the solution to it. He believed that those equations were th« important clue. He had tremendous mathematical ability, and he studied them until he understood what they meant. After that, when he saw the (Ire that Selena had lighted, he thought of the flre that killed LeNormand. And then he knew why LeNormand died, and how." "Selena was responsible for both the fires, then?" •Yes." "How did she create them?" I was very tired, and I could see lhal he did not believe me. "It doesn't matter how she cre- »tcd them. I don't know. You're jusl asking the question to humor me. I haven't convinced you." He sprtad his hands in a gesture of apology. "You're tired to tht point at collapse, Bark. Pw- plt'i brilni got queer kinki In them when they're as exhausted m." U» «•• oui*t tat » tt. HitrftvM * Hf A while. "In a way, I wish I could believe you. Any explanation would be better than none at all." "Not this explanation," I told him, "I've never been so afraid in my life as I am this minute." He tried to smile. "You'll feel differently after a good sleep. I'll give you something that will relax you." "Yes," I said, "you will it I'm wrong. But not if I'm right" "Why not?" "Think back," I told him. 'Remember what happened to the olher two people that found out." "And if you're right, you think the same thing will happen to us?" I STEADIED my voice as much as I could. "She will know that we have found out. And she will come here. After all, it's, been almost a week since Jerry . . . She could have been here days ago." "No," he said, "you mustn't let thoughts like that get the upper hand. Selena is just a woman, a strange woman. This nightmare you've built up in your mind will pass in a few days. You've had a shock, and you are tired. That's all there is to it. We'll go upstairs now and have some sleep." "All righl," I said. "I don't want to argue with you. 1 want you to be right. I'll take your sleeping powder, or whatever it is, and wake up sane again. But, first, I'm going to sit here for five or 10 minutes.. That'll be time enough to demonstrate to me that she isn't coming. II wa« quick, the two times before.' We sat wailing. The dawn was absolutely still around us. Nothing moved. Dr. Llsler looked at mr face quielly with hi I hands folded. I think he «»i planning the details of his treatment la ttttatt m* U> BtyicU. 1 hoped that the rirst Ining no would do would be to exorcise the cold, irrepressible fear that went through me in steady, pulsing waves with every beat of my heart The pause seemed never-ending. Gradually I saw resolution begin to shape his mouth. He was on the point of saying something. At that instant there was a stir at my feet. It was Dr. Lister's dog, Baojum, He walked from under the table, stiffly and turned to look down the terrace toward the corner of the house behind Dr. Lister. He did not growl, nor wag his tail. After a few second his ears went up stifl- ly into two triangles. Hesitation came into Dr. Lister's face. T?IERE was a sound of footsteps beyond the corner of th« building. The color went out of his face, then, in one swift wash of gray that left him looking old and broken, but not afraid. The linei around his mouth tightened; he lifted his head and half turned in his chair. She came toward us walking with that same long, swinging stride. Even when I knew, as I did then, that she was not a person, riot human, not of my own sort at all, there was'something so magnificent about her that no fright or revulsion could cancel the effect of it Th< fear Inside me was swallowed up by * passive expectation. This was the inevitable end of the story, and whatever was to happen, it was out of my power to influence it in any fashion. She came to the table and stood beside it, with the tips of her fingers resting on its top, looking down quietly at both of us. "So," she said, after a while, "you found out." Her eyes rested on me with no expression in them that I could read. "Yes." My voice sounded perfectly calm. She gave me » half smile. "You are a strange person, Bark. I should never understand you. I suppose you hate m*." "1 am afraid of you," I toW her.
