XII J^USH came bock with the whisky. Laurie said excitedly, •She talked Rush, but not sense. She asked about someone I never heard of before. Do you think jh« knows what she's saying?" "Shes coming out of an anesthetic," Rush said. "Just as though she'd had an operation. She may not be rational for a little while." Wasn't she rational? "She asKcd me about a boy we knew in school." Rincla said quietly. "That's all. Just -about a boj we knew in school." That's all. That's all 1 asked. Arfbut a boy named Kelly Winton. "Probably association of Ideas," Rush said. "She saw your fnce, Rinda. and thought of school. Probably seemed a natural enough question to her. .How about that whisky! Will you h»ve some?" A natural question. Well, ot course, she thought with some Irritation, of course it was a natural question. I had to know, didn't IT So 1 had to ask, didn't I? Only what did I want to know lor? If I could remember. . . . 'Look, Ann." Rush said, and she (elt his arms go around her wnist. "I'm going to help you gel to your (eel. I'll hold you but help if you can. Try and help, Ann; try and breathe deeply so you'lJ get air Into your lungs. The sooner we get Hie gas out of your system the quicker you'll feel better." He lifted hei to her feet and for the Brat few step» he all but carried her. Her knees buckled iind there was a ringing In her ear*. The? gnj. The sooner we get the gas out of your system . . . that was it , . . That was what? Did the gut have something to do with the question she'd asked RindaT IT was an endless road she walked with Rush, one step liter another, one breath after another, and finally she Begged them to let her stop, let her lie down again. They iid. They covered her with the blanket, tucked It In all around her. and brought her more black coffee which she drank. And then she spoke aloud, distinctly, and she had not known at all that itie wu going to say it She said. "Allison." "What—7" Rush was perplexed and then he glanced across the couch at Rinds and his face cleared. "Yes. darling. Rinda'i going to marry/ Don Allison, remember? W«'r« joins to the wed- ding." In an nside to Hltxia m .aid. "She seems to have you o« he brain." And Ann snld. equally distinct' y. "Hob Allison." Rinda gave a little sigh. A vcrj 'iltle siyh nnd maybe only Ant icard It. Then Rinda said, "Bob was Don's younger brother, Ann." She closed her eyes and leaned ler head back. She'd never fell no smarl in her life. So cunning. Oil. Hindn had been clever. Clever as could be. Only Ann was leveret. They thought it wai another accident. Thn' was it Another accident. v But she knew better. She knew someone had come to her room iflcr she was asleep. Someone who had crept around quietly, closing the windows, turning on he gas, so that Ann would nevei wake up again. • • • [JINDA had done that. Because Rindn was going to marry Bob Allison's older brother and only Arm now. in the whole world, knew that liirida had been saiiint vvilh Bob the day he drowned, ^robably Don wouldn't marry .lincla if he knew that. She clutched Rush's hand. How would she find wordi to leU him he horrible things Rinda .iad been doing to her? Could she make him believe her? She'd have to. He returned the ordure of her fingers and said, "You'll feel better soon, darling." "Of course." jhi Mid quite clearly. "Of course 1 will. I do. I do already." "It's funny about gas," Rush said. "It can come mighty close to finishing you oil but once you're on the road to recovery it's only • matter of a couple of hours." "Rush—Rush." Ann said hoarsely. "Rtnda came into my room—" Rush nodded. "Sure she did," he said emphatically. "Thank your -lucky start for that She snelled (» and she found you and dragged you out oi that room and roused the whole house." He smiled warmly at Rinda. "Rinda was a girl scout, all right, angel pusi. Rinda saved youi life." * (To Be Continued) Steel Oil Barrel Racks An; Size T. L.
