She could hear voices, but only vaguely; they faded away into the grayness and then came bock again. She couldn't breatlie she couldn't breathe ... she began to sink back into the grayness Uiat was bottomless and awiuL "That's better." She heard the words distinctly It was Rush. What did tie mean—bellerT Then he spoke again and she heard the words. He said: "She's coming out of it. Thank God. That was a close one." That's better that was a close one that's belter Ihat was a close one. She wasn't in her bed. She didn't remember getting up but he wasn't in her tied Sh« didn't hink she was even in her own room but she couldn't get her ey*» open to see, she simply could not raise her drncging ey«lldi. She moaned. "Oh, Ann!" It was Laurie. She was weeping. Why should Laurie je weeping? "Oh, Rush, can't you do something?" "It's all right, Laurie, I tell you." There was a tiole in Rush's voice Ann had never hoard before. She'i regaining consciousness. Now don't you go to pieces. Go walk around with Tommy—" 'Walk!" Laurie was outraged. "My own sister lying there dying and you tell me to—" "She isn't dying, Laurie," Rush said. "She's going to bV all right. Where In the heck ii that coffee? Yon'd think—" »nd Rinda Mid smoothly, "Here it is. Rush. Gay's bringing it. She made a big pol- ful. We'll all have some. It will good for us. 1 ' • • • A NN heard the rattle of cup* on saucers and. with an enormous efTort, she opened her eyes. She was on the porch. She was flat on her back on the porch couch. There was a blanket tucked til around her and she had Uie queerest taste in her mouth, muffled, as though her mouth were stuffed with cotton oalting. "If we can get some of this coffee into her—" Rush said. Gay held a cup ol hot black coffee to Ann's lips. She iwailowed obediently because she knew thai was what they wanted her to do It burned the roof of her mouth and brought tears to her eyes bu she drarfk it. She closed her eye again but only for * moment this time; then she opened them looked up Into Rush's haggard face. . "The gods be praised," Rush jsaid. His voice was a mixture of jso many things. Relief and anger and love and outrage. "Ann, 11 you ivcr scare me [ike that again! I'm [oiiij; to luivc tliul fireplace ripped Kit Ihe first thing in the morning. swear 1 am!" "There, there." Rlnda'i voice was a croon, soft and gentle and nllnitcly soothing, "Don't fright- in her." "She needs to be frightened." Rush said bluntly and it vu- obvious that righteous anger was '.akinc the place of whatever emo- ion he had lust been through. 'Telling me she'd call me if f\\t icock'd anything and then rlosinp ill the windows and turning on hat blasted fireplace." "JJUSH. go act some whisky!" Uhida's voice wai crisp, -risp and authoritative and brook- ng no argument. "Go on, gel some whisky. Have some yourself but if you don't want any (el me some. I could u»e It." Ann frowned up at Rinda Somewhere, sometime, this hao linppcned before. She'd got awake and Hinda hnd been bending ov« her and something terrible had happened. Her mind refused to remember. But Rush had uid— what had he said? That she had done—what? Closed the windows and turned on the fireplace? But it was this afternoon' she'd done that—didn't he remember? This aftemoon when . . . Suddenly her mind teized on a notion. "Rinda—" could thai hoarse whisper be her own voice? "Rinda what ever became of Kelly Winton?" "Sne'j delirious," Laurie aajd flatly from somewhere. But Rinda knew she wasn't delirious. Rinda looked at her and said steadily, "He was in the Navy during the war. Ann." She paused and Ann's eyes remained fixed on Rinda's face. Rinda wet her lipr and siud, "He was killed at Okinawa." Ann closed her eyes. By no effort could she nave held them open. By no effort could she have continued looking at Rinda'i face She hadn't been wrong this afternoon, she had been right. Shr knew there was danger all arouno her ... all around her . .
