She lay very still and Harriet, thinking her mom mate was asleep, moved quietly so as not to waken her. A few days later Harriet asked, "What's become of Tim Jamieson, Toby?" and Toby was able to say, naturally enough, "Oh, he's around. I had a call from him the other night." -, Later the same day Toby stopped in at the Model League office. She was talking to Sally when-she noticed a girl across the room.
